I would be willing to give the customer the benefit of the doubt on that story. There is such a thing as calcium intolerance but it's fairly rare. There are products which are called 'cheese', which are low in calcium, such as Farmer's Cheese. But I would highly doubt that any cheese purchased in a boutique cheese… » 3/23/15 4:19pm Monday 4:19pm

Bad idea, those claim to be flushable. But they are only in the same sense that your car keys and cell phone are. Tissue paper hits a snag in your pipes (like a root), it disintegrates and doesn't obstruct the flow. Those things hit a snag and you get to call a plumber to figure out where the clog in your pipes is,… » 3/03/15 1:41pm 3/03/15 1:41pm

Memory may be foggy, but that didn't sound like either of the original voices for Karan S'jet. I'm hoping that's just because they couldn't get them in time for a trailer and not because they've also decided to re-record the voice track for the game. » 1/25/15 4:04pm 1/25/15 4:04pm

Given the implication is that this was a nuclear weapons testing facility, and knowing how poorly the people working for the Manhattan and later projects understood of the long term dangers of radioactivity or the necessary precautions to safely work with it without giving everyone on your team cancer, I could see why… » 1/02/15 9:52am 1/02/15 9:52am

That's a good idea either way. They were also the chain caught illegally blocking connections to non-Marriott access points (i.e. hotspots) and are currently lobbying the FCC to rule that they should be able to continue to do so to 'ensure the level of quality' of the network their guests receive. » 12/30/14 3:09pm 12/30/14 3:09pm
