Classic game you pick up again and again?

31 May 2013 - 03:57 PM

Recently I've been playing Chrono Trigger again for...I don't even know how many times this makes. It's one game that I see to come back to every now and again. There really isn't any other game that I do this with either. For some reason I just love this game. Do you all have a game that grabs your attention like this?

Tagatose, has anyone heard of or used this?

I forget exactly how I came upon this, probably started with a Google search and branched from there. Anyway, it's an interesting form of sugar. It technically is a type of sugar, occurring naturally in dairy products. However, due to it's structure, most of it is not absorbed by the human body (can't be digested in other words) so it has very little effect on things like insulin, and it's very nearly as sweet as normal table sugar, plus you can actually bake with it because it caramelizes. The problem is that it hasn't really broken into the sweetener market due to other already established alternatives.

Here is an article from Wired about it.

It can be purchased from places like NuNaturals, but it's expensive. From what I've read though, most people cannot tell the difference between this and normal sugar. I think Pepsi has even used it in some things, 7-11 was supposed to have had a Pepsi slurpee that used it. I Don't' live near one so I can't say.

Well I guess I'll never hold a civil position in this state...

So I was browsing reddit earlier and came across this Reuters article about atheist persecution around the world.


This little tidbit got me curious:

In at least seven U.S. states, constitutional provisions are in place that bar atheists from public office and one state, Arkansas, has a law that bars an atheist from testifying as a witness at a trial, the report said.

Hmm, which states?

Then i went looking for the report it's citing.


Bottom of the page for PDF link.

I had a bad feeling that this state would be on that list, and sure enough:

Tennessee constitution (Article 9, Section 2):
“No person who denies the being of God, or a
future state of rewards and punishments,
shall hold any office in the civil department of
this state.”

You'll notice form that list that most of the states with constitutional bans are from the south. Big surprise, right?

Nexus 4, coming soon to a Play Store near you.

So anyone who keeps up with smartphone news probably knows the Nexus 4 launch is right around the corner. Google is having an event on the 27th, and it's all but guaranteed to be the Nexus 4 unveil. There have been lots of pics leaked, and I like the look of the thing, it's the specs that underwhelm me. Supposedly it only has 8gb of storage, though I suspect there may be a 16gb version sold too, like the Nexus 7. The battery also seems a little lackluster, but I'll have to see what users say about the battery life. Beyond that I doubt this will launch on Verizon, so that leaves me out. Anybody else looking forward to the reveal?


Most valuable NES game?

I kind of stumbled upon this by accident when searching ebay for another game. I never played this, but damn is it worth a lot apparently.

It's Flintstones: The Surprise at Dinosaur Peak. Any other NES game worth more than that?
