I totally forgot that was happening. I'm considering re-reading the books because it's been so long, but at the same time, I like being surprised.

I suggest the caffe/espresso macchiato. It's not a lot of coffee so you won't have to force yourself. It's one part espresso and one part foamed milk with shaved cocoa on top. It's pretty amazing when done right. If you want something less strong, you can't go wrong with a cappuccino.

@brodehouse: You sound so angry. Have you considered religion?

Because of the unparalleled damage that people who believe things about the world that are not true are capable of causing.

There is a certain holy book that says that this world and everything in it is worthless, and that its only a temporary condition until the eternal hereafter. Imagine the incredible destruction that would result if someone who legitimately believes that gains control of nuclear weaponry. Not only would annihilating every aspect of humanity on earth be possible, but it would be considered the most altruistic and noble thing that person could do. They have hastened the world into their God's hands.

The best will do the best they can, and the worst will do the worst they can, but it takes religion to convince the best to do their worst.

I'm sorry, but there's no basis for your argument. The fundamental flaw with crazy people isn't religion, it's that they're crazy. If it wasn't religion that is being used to justify what they're doing, it'll be something else. Bottom line is, it will happen regardless of religion or not. A lot of atrocious things done in the name of religion are just using religion as a tool/scapegoat. For every crazy religious person, there's a thousand sane ones. I'm pretty sure that goes for all of humanity, religious or not.

This thinking that if religion was eradicated, there would be peace throughout the world is ludicrous and naive. You'd get farther outlawing currency. People have done far more terrible things because of greed.

Yes, 28, California, I have an MD and an MBA.

My thoughts on religion are, let people do whatever they want to as long as it doesn't negatively affect others. Also, as long as you don't preach to everyone and anyone. I'll answer questions openly if people ask, but otherwise I don't talk about it. I can honestly say I'm a better person because of religion. Take that as you will.

Is it bad that I only know who Danny is on that list? And I only know him because of the GB stuff he does.

My vote is for someone to help Drew and Vinny out, but voting on who they should hire is kind of pointless...

I've been in this state of mind for the last 2 years or so. Ever since my professional life got more time consuming and important, I just can't seem to play games. Which is sad, because there's a bunch of games I have that I want to play really badly.

I don't mean this in a bad way, but I'm surprised that it just shut down now. I mean, even with Alex and Rorie there, it was kinda barely there.
