@chan05: My sister brought her Nook with her when she visited for Christmas and I set that up for her. Up until that point I wasn't a big fan of e-readers, or e-books, but I loved it. I don't know about the Kindle compared to the new Nooks but it was cool. I still like physical books, but a man can only have so much space.
@Snipzor: What shit has France put up with from Americans? Hell, we let Charles De Gaulle march through France like he actually rescued France from German occupation.
Oh, and no France is not a better ally. France, up until their last election, was literally ran by a crook and after all of the oil for food stuff he helped the UN dudes pull off that's just something else to complain about. France was always in their tower nay saying anything America and its allies did.
@Rave: I rarely ever get rid of my games, so I would say no. The ONLY time I can remember doing this was when I let a friend borrow Mass Effect and he never gave it back, then said he lost it. About a week before Mass Effect 2 came out I bought the "On Demand" version on XBL so I could verify my game saves. Other than this, no it has never happened.
