I just tell her "have fun" it has not backfired yet.

Seriously, this. There's a reason why they have their job: they know what they're doing when it comes to hair. You'd be surprised the amount of schooling that goes into their work. They'll figure out the shape of your face and skull and know what works right with it.

Also, don't be a jerk, tip generously.

Well, shit. What a bummer. Valkyrie Profile is maybe my favorite game of all time. I was still holding out hope they'd make a third one, whatever that would be.

Anyone tried running this with a 1GB card yet?

The S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series. The first one came out in 2007, but the last one is only a little over 4 years old. It's one of my favorite series of all time and there's nothing else quite like it.

@development: Muhahaha

Gotta be honest, I had to guess on at least 2 of them. Good thing they might the choices fairly obvious.

Genuinely saddened by this. Been a longtime fan of the Fire Pro series for as long as I can remember. Pouring one out for you tonight, Mr. Masuda.

Are we gonna get a new Law of the West now too? Because that would be cool.

Alligator tail. Probably not that weird, all things considered. Tasted kind of like steak.

Also rocky mountain oysters. Deep-fried bull balls.

Ask reddit http://www.reddit.com/r/whatsthisbug/ they should know ;)

Mystery solved thanks to their Frequently Asked Bug section!

Not a wasp at all. It's apparently a member of the Asilidae family, also known as robber flies or assassin flies, which doesn't even narrow it down that much, as there about 7000 species of Asilidae. My bug is a dead ringer for the fly in the first big image on the Wiki page (coloration is slightly different and it's a male so it doesn't have the crazy looking ovipositor, but it's otherwise identical), somewhat disconcertingly called an "unidentified species." Species of Asilidae can be found all over the world (yes, even Sweden). They're not particularly dangerous to humans; a painful bite, but not venomous .

Thanks for the help, and thanks to everyone else for the comments, my roommate got a kick out of them.
