    This is why our examinations are done by external exam board companies. It gets rid of teacher bias and stuff.

    Sucks to be you.

    I think that's what it is, but people should read what they agree to. And because it is bullshit, I would never play such a game. People should know better.

    I think we can conclude that stupidity is alive and businesses shaft their customers. Of course, that's less of a conclusion and more of common knowledge.

    I live north of Salt Lake City, Gen, it's even worse here.

    Well, that would be fine and all Ely, but it was an assignment.

    Grats Dyra!

    Okay, let's look at this comment.

    Have I ever come across as the generous type who offers sugary treats?

    Exactly. It's all lies.

    But you do come across as the evil, lying, backstabbing, conniving type. So it could be.

    Oh, I'm not blaming one or the other more. I think it's stupid on both parties. The person/parents because they did it or allowed it to happen, and the game companies because they exploit people using this.

    I've worked retail for ~5 years. You do not need to tell me about stupidity. Trust me :P This job has made me realize that we need to have an IQ test or something to allow people to live. Darwin isn't doing his job. :P

    (eg. The customer that bought a pregnacny test and were talking about getting pregnant.... who then couldn't afford the ~$20 purchase. Why the fuck are you trying to have a kid if you can't afford to support yourselves? And why is that legal?)
