The irony is that I've done that a few times, I bought a game and realized it was entirely in french once I got home. Returned to the start and they exchanged my copy free of charge (Benefit of being a frequent customer). The annoying part is that large chains will frequently stock no or few english copies of games where the french version is available.

I know it,s my first language and all, but games in french irritate the heck out of me

Luckily, I got one of the few english copies of Starcraft 2, my name is down for an english Diablo 3 for whenever too.

On a business side, it makes sense for Blizzard not to make a purely NA french version considering how small the french-only customer base is...

About the PP thing:

glitter bomb, LithiumFlower and penny dreadful, and all you other lovely, eloquent ladies, I love all of you.

And if I ever need a tag-team for a rally in DC and have money for your plane tickets, I'm calling you.

YAY! I have a little more faith in humanity! There is hope for the world.


Now, back to being mad.
Texas, why you gotta be so stupid sometimes?! Sonogram bill, my ass. I talked to the author of the bill and he, himself, barely understands his own bill.

For fuck's sake -- one quarter of this country seems to trust the blatherings of a beet-faced jack-a-nape on Fox News who is insane enough to label Teddy Roosevelt a communist. Every issue is politicized. Every single piece of news that reaches our ears is broken down and fractured into something unrecognizable to fit into a comfortable black-and-white issue that the average idiot with his or her thumb ready to flick whatever Republican switch Rush Limbaugh tells him to exert force on when they're in the voting booth.

Ridiculous.
Awesome post. I consider myself a left-leaning moderate - socially liberal and somewhat economically conservative. Since the beginning of the Bush administration, this country seems to be getting more and more divided. Maybe it's when people who thought the Iraq war wasn't such a good idea were being labeled as "terrorists" and were "aiding the enemy." Not that I particularly think Obama is doing an excellent job either. I always go unaffiliated as far as my political party loyalty is concerned.

The one thing I don't understand is the people that talk about "small government" don't have any problem wanting a huge military (that they don't want to have to pay for) and wanting a strong domestic spying program to make sure we are being morally checked in our privacy.

I was going to say this in the 'whats up with you' thread, but felt it belonged here more, in context.

Would you lot say it's about time for a Smothers Brothers revival hour on prime-time?

Wow. It's really amazing how people can't live in 2011. I never understood this type of thing.

this only serves as another example or church in matters of state, which is unconstitutional. i don't want "christ" in my politics, so get the damned churchgoers out of office! i don't care what goes on in someone's bedroom and neither should anyone else

Wow, that is almost funny because in practice, there are parts of KS government that are very gay friendly. Adoption and child custody are one area where KS is great. I have seen gay and lesbian couples chosen to adopt nonrelated children, when there were also several heterosexual couples wanting the same child, but the gay/lesbian couple were a better fit. And in child custody where one parent left the other for a person of the same sex, I have seen the judges tell the hetero parent that's irrelevant to the wellbeing of the child and it isn't considered in custody. We had a lesbian undersheriff, but she left us when she got elected as sheriff the next county over. I guess she didn't get the memo she's a criminal.

Pssh, DC's a 5-hour drive for us. I did it for Stewart and Colbert, I'd do it for PP.
