I just went and had a read of that facebook page. It was, um, really something. Also it's amazing seeing all the Republican/Right Wing folks giving sincere thoughts to Nelson Mandela and then the hordes of comments linking their previous support of calling him a terrorist or supporting Apartheid policies in the past.
What's not amazing is that Nelson Mandela is sadly now dead That's a genuine shame. I remember how much in school the 1981 Springboks (Rugby Team) tour to New Zealand was an incredibly polarizing point in our history. New Zealand hasn't really had many outright riots and fist fights in the general population, but that tour was immensely bitter. One of the games was called off because someone in a plane was circling over the rugby field threatening to drop flower pots - IIRC, it's been a while - on the players. The fact that after he was released he shook the hand of the winning captain of the South African team when they won the Rugby World cup said a lot about how he wanted to heal the rifts in his country (as Rugby was predominantly a "white" sport in South Africa).
we know we all saw invictus
Heh, that film wasn't very popular in NZ.

No one is claiming the Wii wasn't a success. It was. But it wasn't the kind of success the Xbox 360 or PS3 had, the kind that was able to be translated into success for the next generation. The success of the Wii only applied, and continues to only apply, to the Wii itself. It is not transferable to its successor console because what made the Wii successful isn't the same as what makes other consoles successful.
