Little did we know that the Beast was actually a Pokemon and Gaston was trying to weaken it so he could catch it.

No one catches them all like Gaston.

Super Meat Boy's unprecedented release, and the millions of copies sold since, solidified McMillen as a darling of the gaming world, ensuring a carte blanche going forward. And McMillen had big plans for his next project:

"Even worse news for those of us who are cognitively over-the-hill: the researchers find “no evidence that this decline can be attenuated by expertise.” Yes, we get wiser as we get older. But wisdom doesn’t substitute for speed. At best, older players can only hope to compensate “by employing simpler strategies and using the game’s interface more efficiently than younger players,” the authors say."

The Atlanta Braves have been deluged with hate mail after baseball great Hank Aaron’s recent comments about racism in America and President Obama’s critics.

According to USA Today, the Braves organization has received hundreds of letters, emails and phone calls since Aaron made his comments a week ago.

"Hank Aaron is a scumbag piece of (expletive) (racial slur)” read an email from a man named Edward, according to USA Today.

Edward evidently used the racist epithet five times.

"My old man instilled in my mind from a young age, the only good (racial slur) is a dead (racial slur)," he wrote in closing.

One man called Aaron a “racist scumbag,” while another vowed to never attend another Braves game until Aaron is fired from the team’s front office. A man named David said he plans to burn Aaron’s autobiography.

The outrage stems from an interview Aaron gave to USA Today last week, 40 years after he broke Babe Ruth’s career home run record.

Aaron said he still has the racist, threatening letters he received as he closed in on Ruth’s milestone to serve as a “reminder” that things aren’t too different from when he pursued the record.

"If you think that, you are fooling yourself," Aaron said last week. "A lot of things have happened in this country, but we have so far to go. There’s not a whole lot that has changed."

When he shifted his attention to Obama, Aaron seemed to compare Republicans to the KKK.

"We can talk about baseball. Talk about politics. Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated," Aaron said.

He added, “We have moved in the right direction, and there have been improvements, but we still have a long ways to go in the country. The bigger difference is that back then they had hoods. Now they have neckties and starched shirts.”

Henry Aaron has received better hate mail than that weak sauce, Edward.

Now please kill yourself, you’re a boil on the ass of humanity who must be lanced.

While I understand Aaron’s a classy dude and doesn’t want to disrespect the organization, but I really wish he’d tell us how he really feels about the Braves moving to the ‘burbs. Particularly a suburban county where a disturbing number of folks probably agree with with that semi-sentient sack of shit Edward.

I’d like to see the Braves publish all of it, complete with email addresses. Let’s see how many of thesm are still proud of their racism when their names are attached.

"Colbert’s dilemma is that he didn’t become a true successor to David Letterman by taking over Letterman’s job. He did so by hosting Report and, like Dave before him, reinventing what a television show could do. Now, again like Letterman before him, he’s moving to CBS and the second, less interesting phase of his career. Colbert has made it to the top. He just had to take a step down to get there."

"

When did we become so small and so apologetic? Why do we apologize for our humanity? Love what you love, and make no apologies. This is your identity. The most horrendous suspensions of freedom are self-imposed. We imprison ourselves daily, hourly.

We have one life, one shot at all the glorious things of life, and we walk about constricted, apologetic, afraid. We have so little time; we have so little space upon which to spread our love and our talents and our kindness. Run toward life fulsomely and freely.

It runs from us so quickly, like a frightened dog or youth or daylight. Chase it and care for it.

Of course art should be about something big. Something terribly big must be at stake. I don’t see this anymore. Our art is becoming terribly polite and apologetic, much like us. It slinks away like a sagging breast, empty of milk or promise or comfort.

We need to get very fervent again. We need to get jacked up.

"The New Economics Foundation recently posited that a 21-hour work week might be the ideal point for an advanced economy, where paid work and natural resources would be more evenly distributed across a robust economy, solving problems from carbon emissions to gender relations and the quality of family life. “The Netherlands and Germany have a shorter workweek than the United States and Britain,” NEF researcher Anna Coote recently argued in the New York Times. “But the Dutch and German economies are stronger, not weaker. Workers on shorter hours tend to be more productive hour-for-hour. They are under less stress, they get sick less often and they make a more loyal and committed workforce.” But hold your applause, fellow proletarian: The efficacy of the shortened work week is far from proven. France moved to a 35-hour week in 2000, bringing the legal standard limit down from 39 hours. The goals of the shift were more of the same: a better division of labor, lower unemployment, and more personal time for workers to enhance their quality of life. But this gradual tightening of the work week didn’t work as intended."

Guys, Missouri S & T? Really? It’s Truman all the way.

Hail to Pitt!

UMBC heyoooooooo

UIUC isn’t underrated at all. It’s the best public university in Illinois with one of the best engineering and psychology programs and the best library science program I’m the country.

Yeah….UIUC is the flagship school!
The education program is also very good. And accounting and business. And the Vet School is quality too.
And I don’t say that just because all 4 of my degrees are from there, heh.
I would pick Northern Illinois University as most underrated. I never even thought about Northern when I was applying to colleges, and I have heard nothing but good things about it (and the value, too.)
Also? How are Wisconsin and Indiana underrated? How is any Big Ten school underrated?

Hey-o, NIU! As an alum, I’m 100% behind a-l-l-p’s comment.
(I scoffed at this the first time I saw it. UIUC is FAR from being underrated)

UNC chapel hill is underrated? Who the hell made this list?
