Its different from a housing bubble. You can walk away from a bad mortage, you can't walk away from student loan debt. So the banks are eventually gonna get paid.


True.  Even if you declare bankruptcy, student loan debt does not get forgiven and you still have to pay the piper.  Makes no dagnab sense.

Or go into public service.  Pay your loans for 10 years and then (usually) the rest is forgiven.  It's a great way to subsidize lower paying jobs where you have to get expensive degrees to be qualified.

There's a recently abandoned Subway restaurant near my apartment. I walk by it on the way home. Almost every single day for the last two weeks or so, there's been this goose standing outside, staring in through the glass front door. Not even acting aggressive or defending something. Just... staring.

This is why (even with Discord hoppin like it is) we should all still check the forums.  You're a treasure Mesh.

I have been playing Alundra on my Vita a half hour at a time (on my lunch) for a month and am not even halfway through.  It's a good thing it's not terrible and the puzzles are engaging or I would've moved on by now.

So have you pre-ordered this yet, @Rucks?

@Arvis I'll get right on it as soon as you get on playing SMT: Nocturne

It's not board game night until you've argued about the nature and/or intent of the rules to the point that someone threatens to quit

1) Doom and Destiny -  stop #1 on my "Xbox360 Retirement Tour" was stupid and rote and most of the jokes were offensive.  Oh well. On to the next one.

2) Shank - Another XBLA game I blew right through.  I'm trying to retire my 360 so that means slogging through shitty, overly violent platformers like this one before I finally play Dark Souls.

3) Half-Life 2 -  Chugging along through my stupid 360 backlog. This was a decent enough FPS.  I liked it more than Borderlands and Halo but still less than BioShock.  Though to be honest First Person Shooters tend to get tedious awfully quick.

I much prefer the Dpad (because old).  Using an analog stick for games that require quick twitch response often makes me feel like my controller is covered in plastic wrap.

Finished the Trotsky bio. Spoiler - he gets axed to death in Mexico.  Shocking I know.

On to Metal Floss' History of the World (which is about as "light" as a survey of 6000 years of civilization can get).
