Dawkins is the man, don't believe the hate. Atheists are one of the more despised groups of people out there. A Gallup poll from 2012 showed that US citizens would sooner vote for a Muslim, gay, or lesbian president than they would an atheist. Dawkins has been nothing but professional any time I've heard him speak or read his work, but perhaps there are things I'm not privy to which warrants people not liking him. People certainly don't like him, and he receives more death threats than I would care to have leveled at me for simply stating my beliefs.

Watch either version of Cosmos for a great introduction to evolution and the scientific method in general.

I'm right there with you on GTA games. Love them, been playing them since the top down days. Never finished a single one. I dive head first into each game and play the hell out of them for a few weeks, then stop cold turkey. And every time a new one comes out, I buy it at full price within the first few days of release.

I came for the young Vinny in the thumbnail.

17 hours in, using the Bastard Sword. I like being able to one hand it with a shield in new areas, then switch to two-handed in familiar territory.

I saved up for the Silver Cat Ring to drop down into the well in Majula. Bought the ring, dropped down to the first platform and promptly died.

I guess I'll bump up my Vit?

I'm level 50 and only have 11 Vigor so that's not enough to survive that fall with the Silver Cat Ring. I wonder how much health I need.

I survived with 15 vigor and the Silver Cat Ring. Not sure if anything between 11-15 would work, as I didn't try until I had 15 vigor.

Hmm, I'm only at 7 now...not sure how much I want to dump into vigor. I might just have to find another way in.

I just discovered that the Black Armor edition is one of the nicest game cases I've ever laid eyes on. So clean.

@bybeach: Hmm, I didn't think to do that. Thanks for the info!

Amazon finally updated my shipping info with an estimated Thursday delivery date. Canceled that, then preordered at Best Buy so I can pick it up tomorrow. I rarely buy games brand new, and even when I do I don't necessarily need it on day one. Dark Souls 2 is a different story. I only wish I took some time off work.

I think I'll roll a warrior on my first playthrough. I want to be able to sample all of the weapons I come across in order to find my favorites to be used for future builds, so I want to have the STR and DEX to do so.
