No, sir, to the contrary it is quite impressive. A collection that great should be in a museum. Your entertainment center should be at least nominated as a World Heritage site. Thank you for a job well done.
About 2013, a big problem was that, by reasonable standards, the game was broken. The RCI indicators were the tradional measurements of growing a city, in 2013 these were broken, and developers defended that it was by design. Sure, they eventually made some patches to address some of it, but I don't really know the details because I had quit playing long before then.
Now you have to pay to see the endgame before you realize it's broken, I reckon.
There's always been a difference between legal definitions and common language. We could argue that the continuing evolution of any industry's jargon is the footprint of progress. It's very hard to fight against. I'll theorize that those who argue semantics are often seen as argumentative rather than willing to make progress.
I'm still explaining to people that the Internet is capitalized.
Well, being an American, I have been raised to be ignorant and dismissive of "other cultures", as if any such things actually exist.
I didn't know they were called Nazca Lines and would appreciate learning such a thing in the news... if only I had. I learned about this only by following Techdirt.
My brain seriously does a little happy dance when American news reports anything not related to America. It definitely does not happen too often. I think our school children might take a moment of silence to appreciate the grace and fragility of the Nasca Lines (that could certainly be a better use of the time expressly given for saying the Pledge of Allegiance). Older students should look at Greenpeace's assinity and realize that virtually nobody ever respects someone's political message on someone else's apolitical work.
Right, I understand that a employer/customer to business relationship is a net loss at both ends due to you-name-it-tax. Even before vacuum taxes are considered, employees can never be paid more than the business earns and a business can never earn more than a customer can pay. It's lose-lose.
