depressed but not fat

The last time I bought a computer game it was to block out the s**t that is my life. I was looking for something that would take ages to complete thus filling the hours of boredom that would normally be filled with a social life. I recommend the RPG as an ample source of oblivion.

I'm not fat though or 35.

natural cycles not really that nice

Surely it would be preferable if we are causing the climate change because then we have the option of changing our actions to mitigate it. If it is some natural cycle that we don't understand and may not be able to do anything about wouldn't that be really, really bad?

feed me books

Thanks for mentioning feedbooks. I hadn't heard of them before.

I just wish I had something nicer to read my downloaded book on than my big clunky thinkpad.

Thumb Down


I am surprised to hear that Sony did so well. I owned a Sony Vaio FZ18L for a month, before sending it back, and it was awful.

No mention of Lenovo in the survey?

Thumb Up


I am writing this comment on the Lenovo Thinkpad I received this morning so I can attest to their chunkiness but it's a nice change from the poorly built, flacid Sony Vaio I owned for a month before returning it.

They should make him write a hand written letter of apology to each person he spammed.
