That was my first guess as well. Stupid multiple choice.

I have an economics question that I can't seem to figure out... dunno if it's from doing fifty other questions or what.

the public good should be provided in another way or not provided at all.
the tax should be used to offset inelastic demand.
the demand must be very elastic.
the supply must be very elastic.
 
Anyone have an answer and why?

The only one I really agree with so far is Lady Gaga, only because she is serving as the Madonna of this generation if you will. However I do agree that The Arcade Fire may get some sort of recognition because of The Funeral. At the very least, The Funeral may be looked back upon as being one of the greatest albums of the generation.
 
Rascal Flats will always be looked back upon in the country community, but then again I feel like those who love country music have the memory of a supercomputer. Now granted, I'm saying looked back upon like we look back upon Journey, Aerosmith, and MJ. Obviously we all KNOW about those other older bands, but I'm talking the ones that just become permanent staples in the music industry. Dunno if we have too many more of those right now.

" Screw everything about the end of Exodus. I got pissed off enough that I ended up just walking straight to the button, not even bothering to take cover or anything. Stupidly, it worked just fine.  I don't know how this part of the game passed bug testing. The AI of your allies is flat out broken. They just stand there while grunts and brutes walk right by them. "

Not only that, they're actually physically against you, because all they know how to do is follow you. This resulted in me getting splattered by them four separate times while they were driving a warthog. If that's not broken, I don't know what is.

Even though GB isn't updating that I did it... and it happened like four days ago. SLOW.

" Tbh, I have to agree with Jeff (Bombcast) in which he says he just bashed his head against it until he got through - Me and mate did the campaign of Legendary 1st time through and it was just 1 man running in and 1 man hanging back so the other dude can respawn when he inevitably dies. "
I agree. It honestly just felt cheap as hell sometimes. At one point I was supposed to take down a wraith, but it hid behind some rocks and didn't come out unless I approached it. Guess what, as soon as I got close enough to approach it, it would fire and kill me, and since the blast radius is increased about 500 fold, it made it all the worse. When it didn't feel cheap and when you don't have to rely on horribly programmed partner AI, it felt great, challenging but not impossible, the occasional death serving as a, "Oh, I shouldn't do that." But that was only about half the time, to be honest.

This is awesome, I kept going back and forth on whether I wanted Black Ops after all the investment in MW2 and because of Reach, but this kind of variance in the gameplay modes makes this a must-buy. And I have a lot of faith in Treyarch--they're a great developer.

I didn't find Legendary solo very hard at all up until the ending portion of Nightfall (or whatever the sniping mission at night is). I had the occasional death, but that was only because of my stupidity. But now, this section has killed me AT LEAST 70 times now. I try a different approach every time too. It's the section where you must scale down the cliff right at the end, and there's a turret across the way shooting at you and tons of Elites who just bum rush. It's like impossible to take that section cautiously too, because if you don't look over the rocks, you don't even have a shot at anything. But if you DO look over the rocks, you have that turret killing you in two seconds. The plasma pistol makes it stop for a little bit, but before I'm able to destroy it it kicks back up again. The closest I've gotten to beating it is I scaled the rocks behind it and took out all the grunts, but then the Elites just rush you anyway and you have no chance. And your partner's AI is HORRIFIC.

I've been wanting to pick up a new FIFA for a while now... my last one was 2003. I still have that stupid Avril Lavigne remix song thing stuck in my head. -_-
