I'm a virtual reality and game programmer, who's excited about games, technology, online comics. Currently I work on creating interactive haptic systems.

@Taweret What's the plan for teams that don't have enough players?

Are they calling up people from the minors?

That'll be a tough choice for minor leaguers.

I think they might be exaggerating the capacity slightly.

@Kat There's one way to find out!!!

... look up the specifications online and compare to your vehicle's manual.

@Kat It's supposed to be cheap.

That's *like* "good".

Kinda unfair that all four turtles were named after painters.

There are other fine arts, you know.

@Taweret Do you have a full list of the previous 63 games?

I can only find the first three on Wikipedia.

Hmm... now I'm wondering.

was the anthem thing purely American?

Or did TV stations in other countries sign off with the local national anthem?

I'm just barely old enough to remember, but TV stations used to go off the air at the end of the day.

This strikes me as a fine idea.

The internet should take up this tradition.

At local 2:00am, just play the national anthem and shut everything down until sunrise.

@dankwraith I'm sure he's one of those guys that thinks the hard part is coming up with an idea.

He's probably perpetually frustrated that programmers keep "making things complicated".

@PsyChuan @Taweret I'd heard of those educational practice padlocks before.

I was surprised to learn that you can get practice safes.

I guess I shouldn't have been surprised.

@Taweret Turns out you can buy a practice safe. And it comes with safe-cracking instructions.

You know what's an amazing invention?

Rock tumblers.

What do they do? The make rocks smooth.

They don't make the rocks better, or more useful. Just smoother.

Because if you've got a rock, why not make it smooth?

Why do all kitchen appliances have black power cables?

Wouldn't it be more convenient if power cables were all different, randomly assigned cables?

That way the likelihood that two adjacent appliances had similar looking cables would be very low.
