Fact: Unlike the condescending Mac ads, most PC users aren't nerdy, chubby, droll and boring suit-dressing men in their 40s.

Fact: Unlike depicted in the ads, most Mac users aren't cool hipsters.They're actually a bunch of picky, condescending, elitist... hey, what are you doing reading this?

Okay, not really. Sorry.

Fact: Women feel more comfortable using a Mac than a PC.

Keith Richards from the Rolling Stones apparently 'sniffed' his father.
He just mixed a little bit of his father's ashes with some cocaine and sniffed it :shock:

Made by the same people that made the Moog synthesizer (the one that's the size of a house) I take it.

There are many Moog synthesizers, Robert Moog and his company is the most legendary synth manufacturer ever.

I would like to own a Mini Moog but at 4000$ USD, I can't afford such a thing.

That's interesting. In junior school I had a teacher who repeatedly told a story of how she had (as a child) put her pet rabbit in a wheelbarrow and catapulted it into the air until it vomited. So this means she's either a twisted bitch or a compulsive liar. Perfect teacher material either way :?

Is it a single Moog featured in the "Dark side of the Moog" series by Pete Namlook and Klaus Schultz? A special one? I read about one from the 70's. Fucking huge.

I don't know much about "Dark side of the Moog", haven't heard it and I don't know what they used. Anyway, between 1967 and 1981, Moog produced and sold "modular synths" as well as new modules for these, which made it possible to expand them to infinity. You could fill up your whole apartment with modules and hook them up together to form one enormous synthesizer.

Bret Michaels, vocalist of glam metal band Poison, got a reputation of a junkie for backstage photos that show him injecting himself with a syringe. Actually, it was insuline for his diabetes.

Ian James Corlett was the voice of villain Dr. Wily in Captain N.

He later worked in the MegaMan series -- as the hero's voice.

Factual error in the Pixar film Finding Nemo:

Mr. Ray tells a student named Jimmy to keep his supraesophageal ganglion to himself. This is a part of an insect's central nervous system. This means that Jimmy is an insect (few insects live in freshwater, such as the water boatman, but none are known to live in the ocean), and Mr. Ray is essentially telling an underwater insect to keep his brain to himself.[/i]

I know that new Capcom 2D fighter news was big, but I've never experienced such a long radio silence before. My useless contribution for this day.

See the air freshener?

It was released a year before the original Sonic the Hedgehog game.

Roger Ebert described The Passion of The Christ as "the most violent [film] I have ever seen". From him that's saying quite a lot. I'm glad I've never seen it.

Trogdor was a man.

I mean, he was a dragon man.

Or maybe he was just a dragon.

But he was still Trogdor!
