      @Jaybird, I’m more a Civ 5 kindof player. Or Starcraft II.Report

      • @North, I’ve never played any of the Civ games, but running a culture sounds fun. And I have a decent excuse: I met one of the guys who worked on the soundtrack, so I can say I’m playing it “for the music.” But I barely have enough time to blog these days, so computer games are pretty much out.Report

        @North, give me an RPG any day… doubly so when it’s an RPG where there are multiple different ways to finish any given mission.

        Can I do what I’m told? How about betray my benefactor? How about play both sides against each other?

        That lets me play it a second time as a total bastard and a third time as a greedy one.Report

    Fraud? Every politician past, present and future is a fruad of some sort! It is the expanding degree of greed that finally gets them, and I guess according to “Bernstein’s Law” finally shows us our own failings.Report

    When a baseball team forfeits, the game is recorded as a 9-0 victory for the other team. In other words, the Rangers might as well not have shown up last night.Report
