  • 00:13:14: This video (via @dmataconis) fascinates me, much the same way a brutal car wreck would. Have I mentioned I hate pigs? http://bit.ly/9Ie2gW
  • 10:04:17: I have to admit, nothing is more fun than watching a tech writer on a rampage. @jperlow's war on Facebook is awesome and informative.
  • 10:10:08: @Psymin1 I'm not sure at this point; I know he reviewed the DS version. You should whip out a review of this one! Get your feet wetter.
  • 10:11:18: Wow! Tottenham beat the New Chelsea to make the Champions League! Congrats @burning_phoneix!
  • 10:40:51: Looking at the team ratings in FIFA World Cup '10. WOW, did they screw the US in the ratings. They're barely better than the South Africans!
  • 10:41:43: @Samarecarm It's a SWAT narcotics (read: barely enough weed to get a misdemeanour) raid. But they news is that they shot two dogs.
  • 10:46:08: @Samarecarm It's fascinating to me, but only because I truly despise the police. Being hogtied because you're strong does that to you.
  • 11:01:28: @Psymin1 Oh, did it shock you? Good.
  • 11:07:10: @Jim_Sterling I'm honestly torn. On the one hand, damn does this "blogging" thing look fun. On the other, our site - especially our editor -
  • 11:07:54: @Jim_Sterling insist on proper journalism; a "check twice, cut one" type thing. It's kinda stifling, but we've never misreported anything.
  • 11:15:29: @twelveicings Do it! I dare you! XD
  • 11:17:34: Raystorm's demo is *so* poor, it makes me not want to buy a game that would be an instant purchase otherwise.
  • 11:18:28: @Jim_Sterling I agree. But when you report news, there's a responsibility - I feel - to get the facts right. There are times when...
  • 11:19:29: @Jim_Sterling you guys report things and get the facts a little screwy because you didn't fact check. I got burned referencing DToid once.
  • 11:19:50: @DanaTaggart And taking them out of public school gives us McCain and Bush voters. What's your/his point?
  • 11:27:08: @Jim_Sterling That, I agree with. "Dude, you goofed, whoopsie" is much preferable to "WRONG AGAIN, FAGGOT". That's just adult discourse.
  • 11:27:58: @Jim_Sterling And I was wrong: I misreported *yesterday*. I said Lead and Gold didn't have a PC version. One quick edit, all was forgiven.
  • 11:31:01: @burning_phoneix Not at all. But I would think this shit is routine in a country that beheads people.
  • 11:33:22: @chadfordinsider That's a hell of an indictment on the "stay in school and get an education" crew.
  • 12:37:22: @Psymin1 Not if their stats back it up. If they can hit (like Doughty), you're fine. If not, do a one-up trade and balance things.
  • 12:37:59: @nickchester It was awhile ago (over a year); I'd have to find it. But if/when I do, I promise I'll let you know.
  • 12:39:41: @Psymin1 There's no real need to look at types; look at stats instead. Kyle Okposo is a "sniper", but excells as a two way player.
  • 12:48:20: @jdeloma What the hell!? That's something I'd expect at an internment camp! What the hell is going on with our country?
  • 12:56:20: FIFA World Cup is very realistic, I see! England's choking, and Serbia's parked the bus! Maybe we'll go to penalties and choke there, too!
  • 13:31:07: @Psymin1 You're in a fantasy league?
  • 13:32:03: @jlist To hell with that. I turn 30 in two weeks. I can do without!
  • 13:58:30: @Psymin1 That's actually what I meant. Try to trade for futures if you can.
  • 14:11:08: OK, so what the fuck happened to turn our normally fickle investors MORE fickle? 1,010 points down? #dowjones
  • 14:22:42: World Cup '10 might have just been validated by the World Cup celebration. HOLY SHIT. Best celebration ever. No hyperbole.
  • 14:24:47: @Psymin1 What's your current team?
  • 14:49:39: @dmataconis Here's a question: what do we do with the illegals that became legal afterwards? Like my father?
  • 15:11:52: http://bit.ly/c4a27k - I think this is fairly accurate, sadly: If Super Mario Bros. was made in 2010.
  • 15:18:57: @dmataconis My father came from Greece illegally in '74, but became legal in 1997. That's the point, and why I hate legislation like this.
  • 15:19:18: @Psymin1 But you know what? You're young. Just learn from it, you'll be fine.
  • 15:23:40: One problem with Captain Your Country: You have to wish ill upon your teammates and partners. Nice turnovers, Rob Friend! I'm Captain now!
  • 15:33:06: Calls for Greece to default are asinine. Let the people riot; their insistence on heavy socialist funding is what caused their mess.
  • 15:33:39: @the_pc_doc Your new picture looks intimidating. "Keep your protection up to date, or you'll deal with ME"
  • 15:53:04: @DanaTaggart My point is that that statement is irresponsible, incindiary, and flat-out wrong. Short sighted, too.
  • 15:56:56: @keithlaw And JaMarcus Russell didn't ruin it due to stupidity? He's an almost 300lb. quarterback. No, it's not muscle.
  • 16:05:42: @sportsguy33 Two columns in two days? Wow! It's almost like it's 2004 again!
  • 16:10:45: @BJaMsWorld Yeah. Do everything possible to drop Lecavlier. You're going to need that cap space to resign (cont) http://tl.gd/166lqq
  • 16:35:13: @WhitlockJason Jesus, man! Are we all your research assistants?
  • 16:56:41: @Psymin1 YES YES YES HOLY FUCKING SHIT YES.
  • 17:31:42: @Psymin1 Or cap room. Cap room isn't a bad thing. You can give up a couple of rating points.
  • 19:16:50: @Psymin1 versus?
  • 19:21:14: So River Restaurant in Derby is gone and has already been replaced. That was fast...
  • 19:30:34: @Psymin1 Regional decision. Dammit, that sucks.
  • 21:03:31: I turned the return of my store-bought World Cup '10 into Sakura Wars ($40) and a haircut ($20). Thanks, EA! Sorry I have to slam the game!
  • 21:04:48: @DanaTaggart I saw someone out to eat that had to have a special chair. The contempt from everyone around her was *delicious*
  • 21:05:15: @DanaTaggart That's fine, but you're skipping something by pointing out "Obama voters": Obama isn't the enemy. He's the product of a...
  • 21:05:39: @DanaTaggart corrupt, two party system that spits out shit to keep people - of all education levels - dumb. You of all people know that.
  • 21:06:36: Also, I love the Fortune Pavilion, but would like it more if it didn't involve eating with typical Derby residents. #getmeoutofhere
  • 21:16:45: @DerbyAutoBody Hey, here's a strange question... do you do painting? If you do, I have a pretty strange request.
  • 21:20:15: I'm a little disappointed in how poorly the Liberal Democrats are doing. Even in England, the people are too stupid for a third party.
  • 21:26:07: @allahpundit People forget we were founded by people who wanted to worship *freely*
  • 21:27:21: If America's a Christian nation then how did Thomas Jefferson get elected President?
  • 21:27:38: RT @dmataconis: If America's a Christian nation then why did John Adams sign a treaty that explicitly says that it isn't ?
  • 21:32:12: All the British election is doing - other than affirming that people are chickenshit - is making me listen to Morrissey.
  • 21:33:41: The Lib. Dems remind me of that Simpsons episode where Bart Simpson led a noisy campaign, but lost Class President 2-0.
  • 21:39:13: "I've been dreaming of a time when the English are sick to death of Labour, And Tories, and spit upon the name of Oliver Cromwell" #moz
  • 22:19:03: @Psymin1 Keep any player that's expiring unless you get a good deal. Otherwise? DROP them for prospects.
  • 22:32:34: スイtチイングランドダニホンゴWindows7タノシサ!
  • 22:33:52: (Go figure. TweetDeck doesn't show my Japanese tweet. Just hit the link of my tweet if you're using a client that doesn't show katakana)
  • 23:05:11: @DanaTaggart I feel anyone too fat to walk shouldn't be out and about. Either make yourself fitter, or be put down like the cow you are.
  • 23:28:45: @KeithOlbermann All I can think about right now is you and Dan Patrick spending a whole minute making fun of Don Hay's name.
  • 23:38:23: Since @cintronmint demanded it: The New Bus, Same As The Old Bus (less hairy) http://tweetphoto.com/21372766
