    My sister's family has one of these:

    It's an induction charger, just lay the remote on the pad and it will charge. It's got little magnets in it to click it in the right position.

    I like how the PS3 controllers recharge while connected to the console. When one runs out of juice on wireless, I just swap it with another one and connect the juiced out one.

    I can understand how that might be attractive, but I personally want fewer cables in my life, not more.

    I hate batteries so much that I still rock a wired mouse.

    although most wireless mice probably have chargers these days. I should look into that.

    Nope, they use induction. Sorry, _J_, they don't make deduction chargers.

    Also the problem I have with wireless mice is you have to remember to always put them back into the charger, and, if you forget, then the only time you'll notice is when you actually want to use your computer.

    I use the same logic as to why one should always keep, minimum, two jars of frequently used spreads in the cupboard. Because most likely, you don't notice you've run out till you actually want some, or are in the middle of using a substantial amount.

    I know what you mean, but I don't use a controller that's hooked up, so I'm still playing wirelessly.

    I just love not having to purchase anything extra just to keep my controller operational.

    There just are not enough games I want to play on the Wii to justify me buying one. I mean, No More Heroes looks like it is fun, but other than that I can't really think of any Wii games that make me want to buy the system.

    Salt in coffee?

    This 85c place by my work does them. They use sea salt in the foam or somesuch, but the flavor doesn't register as salty at all. Whatever salt is present just serves to trick your tongue and tone the acid flavors of the coffee down to nonexistence. The coffee just has this smoky, nutty, creamy sort of taste, not at all pinched like cheap hot coffees.

    Oh man why did I go there? I swore off constant lunches and coffees to be all budget conscious.

    Salt is a flavor "enhancer" in small doses. When you over salt something is when you start tasting it.

    Hmm anyone remember a feminism/women-in-games thread (or something of the like) a few weeks back? It got locked pretty quickly after the creator deleted the OP because people went apeshit or something.

    Anyway, whoever created that thread posted some link to a pretty interesting article about privilege. About how a privileged group will often try to avert attention back to them. Like white men going "Where is White History Month? huh?" whenever Black History Month rolls around since they can't stand the unprivileged group receiving attention. Anyone remember the name of the article or happened save the link?

    EDIT: Found it.

    No, seriously what the fuck is wrong with this country?
    School officials have threatened a hearing-impaired girl with suspension if she uses sign language to talk to her friends on the school bus, the girl's parents say.

    Danica Lesko and her parents say sign language is the only way to for the 12-year-old to communicate, especially while riding to school on a noisy bus.

    But officials at Stonybrook School — which is not a school for the hearing-impaired — and district officials in Branchburg, N.J., apparently believe signing is a safety hazard. They have sent a letter to the Lesko family ordering Danica to stop using sign language on the school bus or risk a three-day suspension.

    The March 30 letter from her principal that said Danica was "doing sign language after being told it wasn't allowed on the bus."

    The Leskos may file a lawsuit over the sign language ban, claiming officials are violating Danica's civil rights and violating the Americans with Disabilities Act.

    "She has a hearing problem, and now she's being punished for using sign language," Mary Ann Lesko, Danica's mother, told The Star-Ledger of Newark. "It's absurd."

    Danica's parents told the paper that other students who rode to school with their daughter made fun of her, and refused to stay in their seats as they teased other girls who were using sign language. They said school officials are singling out Danica and not addressing those who should really be reprimanded.

    Schools Officials: Safety First

    In a statement released through the school district's attorney, David Rubin, the Branchburg Board of Education refused to discuss the details of Danica's case, saying only that its version of events differs from the parents' version.

    However, the board insisted it has not violated anyone's rights and is only trying to protect other students who must ride on the school bus.

    "The Board is committed to providing reasonable accommodations to all students with disabilities, and is satisfied that there has been no violation of that policy in this case," officials said in the statement. "The Board is also committed to assuring the safety of all students who travel on District buses, and will continue to take appropriate steps to accomplish that goal."

    Oh, and beautiful dash of irony, from the 2nd page of that story:
    Danica's parents say she began losing her hearing last November, when a classmate allegedly shot a bottle rocket near her ear. They have already sued the Branchburg School District over that incident.

    That's ... odd. How is signing a safety hazard? I'm stretching my brain here, and the best I can come up with is "the people engaged in conversation via sign language may not hear other warnings"?

    Yeah, the second page even brings up the idea of it being classed as a foreign language, which is how I was viewing it.

    Someone got their feelings hurt because the girls looked at him/her and giggled while 'signing'?

    Well, according to the middle of the article there, other students were getting out of their seats to go over and tease her for using sign language.

    This is obviously her fault, of course.
