Didn't they even try to sell 2 types of Flash memory sticks back in the day? I think they had one that was for "data" and one that was for "music", even though it was all just data anyway. This was over 10 years ago, so I forget which one they tried to charge a premium for. » 2/19/15 10:59am 2/19/15 10:59am

Aren't they recycling VIN years now anyway? For instance, the way a VIN shows 1985 is the same as 2015. I learned this when I was tracking my (legal) Mini-Cooper.

Very interesting! I think I would agree with your approach. I taught high school for 4 years and was shocked at how well the students all took notes. I was then shocked at how poorly they did on short 10 question quizzes over the same material, sometimes taken word-for-word. » 2/03/15 9:43am 2/03/15 9:43am

Totally not defending the physics involved, but I remember playing this on the GC and it wasn't quite as noticeable. I think, since in 2002, most people were playing the game in standard def interlaced TVs using composite cables, they exaggerated it so it was noticeable at all. I remember playing the game back then… » 1/23/15 1:49pm 1/23/15 1:49pm
