    Sorry force of habit. Don't know why they don't call them customers but we get told not to use the term.

    I hate it when jobs do stupid shit like that. I had one where we were supposed to refer to them as "guests," not customers.

    Like if a customer overheard you calling them a customer they would get pissed.

    We call them clients.

    Typically they have people to get annoyed on their behalf. They are generally far more unpleasant to deal with than people who are actually angry themselves.

    Part of it is customer can mean things other then our subscribers.

    I actually would prefer the term customer to "guest." Customer implies that I'm paying you for something, and therefor expect some shit from you.

    "Guest" sounds like you're letting me in your store out of the kindness of your heart.

    God that shit is stupid.

    Well okay, if you had both customers and subscribers and they were different things then this makes more sense.

    I have this problem with both videogames and movies. It's even worse if you count stuff that is owned by my roommate therefor is in my possession that I still have not played or watched.

    Hell I still need to watch District 9 on Blu-Ray. I specifically bought that because I got a PS3 for Christmas and had no Blu-Ray movies.

    It's a matter of time. Any time I would have spent watching that movie I have instead spent playing Demon's souls.

    But when it comes time for my brother or I to move out, I will have to set aside a few weeks to watch and play everything I possibly can.

    Yeah it struck me as kind of odd because in the US we make basically no distinction between the two. I guess the Indians for whatever reason are a lot more anglophilic though.
    They're pretty much genetically identical, and culturally very, very similar. The only substantial difference is that Indians are Hindu and hate Pakistanis, and Pakistanis are Muslim and hate Indians.

    Oh man dont get me started on all the video games I got from steam this past month and havent even downloaded yet.

    But yeah on blu ray I still have star trek and coraline to watch, never saw them in theatres. District 9 is really good AND very awesome looking on blu ray.

    Man I got new Star Trek on DVD for Christmas. Didn't get a receipt with it, though. Thinking of seeing where I can trade it in towards the purchase of Blu Ray Star Trek.

    Do you think it was because that is an Indian team, or is it because F1 is very big on picking one team and hating its rivals?

    I'm going to go with it being an Indian team. Muslims tend to be Ferrari fans.

    EDIT: Also because Force India are still enough of a minnow that they don't really have rivals in a meaningful sense.

    Most of Ferrari's funding these days comes from the UAE. That's why their drivers are always wearing hats that have "Mubadala Abu Dhabi" emblazoned on them in interviews, and they built the Ferrari World theme park there.

    It's a bit of both, really. Ethnic Muslims are not keen on India generally, and Ferrari is a big, big deal in the Arab world. So there's a touch of racial tension, and a lot of sporting rivalry.

    See, this I don't care about because if I could make out what they had written, I'm sure it would be grammatically correct.

    Opening this year. World's largest indoor theme park, based at the Yas Marina circuit (which hosted its maiden Grand Prix in 2009) in Abu Dhabi.

    The circuit itself is nuts. Higher maximum theoretical top speed than Hockenheim, longest straight in the sport, and the circuit passes through the middle of the Marina hotel.

    I usually watch a movie I get at least twice, usually.

    Though depends some dvds I watch a lot like the It's Always sunny dvds I got for christmas has already gotten a lot of use. Mainly from me watching them once and then rewatching them with different friends.

    I got at least 3 of my friends into the show and my sis somewhat enjoys them too.

    I watched the first episode missing a bit of the beginning, and I watched it on a saturday afternoon on the space channel so I thought it was one of those straight to tv movies at first. Then I found out it was a tv show, the second episode was airing later that week and after I saw the second one I knew for sure I was hooked.

    Girl in college recommended it to me, and the other stuff she's told me to watch has been pretty good too. I'm sure as hell not gonna get any sleep tonight, so I might as well try and blast through the first half of the first season.

    Through the hotel? So they race through the lobby?
