I tip 20% unless gratuity is included on the check.  When it's included I just leave it at that and don't tip any extra.
 
I'll go over 20% if it's a cheap place where I figure the servers probably don't make much in the way of tips.

Can't you just ignore them if they don't interest you?

Missed it.  Bummer!

I don't know, this one seems unlikely.  But maybe the long lead time will create enough interest for people to pop on Christmas Eve and close it out.  Personally, I don't think I'll be able to do the final day.  But if it stays active until late Christmas day, I might be able to swing it.

I played it nearly every day from release until the last day of November, and now haven't popped it in one time since.  I think it's a combination of the fact that I tend to play one game 100% until I finish it (played Splinter Cell: Conviction, then Red Dead Redemption, and now Mass Effect 2) and I needed a break.

There were a couple of others that I thought would work too, but two of them were just imitations of classic games with their branding/characters in them. "
 That's actually the only game I checked that didn't pop for the quest (excepting a few obscure games for characters with other games that did work.)  It's fun when you can think of enough games (or characters at least) to complete the quest without having to flail around searching.

thanks, i'm glad someone else agrees with that point. "
Or maybe guys just like cars because they think they look cool, or it's their hobby, or because they like fixing things. Do you seriously think guys think "Oh man when I get this I'm finally going to get chicks!" It sounds like a cheesy 80's teen movie. "
Perhaps I was too vague, but that would be one motivation for getting a pricey car, certainly not the only motivation.

Basement totally should have been one of the locations!
 
I found a couple by searching for creepy words and checking only locations under options in the search box.  Worked just so-so, but also a way to find some weird location pages.
