    Also, I finished up ME2 last night again, because I wanted the best ending, and I have to say that the ending isn't anywhere near as bad as I remember it being. It's actually very good, other than...
    The Terminator fight, which is retarded. However, the Saren fight wasn't very good at the end of ME1, either, and that game had one of the best last levels of all-time. I actually really enjoyed the end of ME2 this time through; I think it is a great payoff, that makes it seem like what you did in the rest of the game really mattered. So, while it wasn't as good as the ending to ME1, I think that's an unfair bar to expect it to meet. It's pretty great.
    For some reason I never completed ME1 or ME2, so I'm holding off on ME3 SP until I get those completed satisfactorily. I can't explain it except my kids started being born right around when ME1 was released, but still I feel shame.
    I love ME1; however, I recognize that a lot of people think it's terrible, and totally understand why. I'm simply capable of overlooking some incredibly glaring flaws, and loving the awesome stuff that is there.

    I had ME1 for a couple years before I got past the Citadel.

    Just about done with my second (and probably last) playthrough now.

    That's probably it. I mean, stuff is only as good as the ingredients that go in.

    I just don't like meat with a mint or fruity taste to it. What I remember of the gyro is that it had a minty taste to it, and it put me off.

    Are you sure that wasn't the mojito you had in your other hand

    Totally, but I love both of the games, I just ... well I don't know, but a lot of things get put on hold when you start breeding.

    Edit: Funnily, the ME3 MP demo caused me to fall back in lust with ME generally, and has inspired me to get back to the first 2 and finish them!!

    Yeah, unless they're actually shaving the meat off a vertical spit just run away as fast as you can. Tzatziki is pretty dope but can definitely vary from place to place, I like mine to be pretty well blended, don't like big chunks of cucumber.

    I have to get mine with no tzatziki as it messes up my insides like cheese does.

    Still love em though.

    The union that has most tanker drivers as members voted for strike action over pay and conditions.

    Note that there isn't any strike yet, nor is one yet planned, but government ministers have been in the media talking about how people should be filling jerry cans.

    What's particularly funny is that there are a load of regulations surrounding how petrol can be stored (outside of a vehicle fuel tank) and storing fuel in most domestic garages in 20 litre jerry cans is probably illegal in most cases.

    GUYS GUYS I HAVE A PLAN:

    Everyone on the forums empties their life savings accounts into a pool until we have $176 million.

    Then we systematically purchase every single possible permutation of the mega millions lottery numbers.

    Then we split the winnings based on how much you put in.

    Every single person who puts in money gets a ~1.4x guaranteed instant return on their investment.

    Obviously, the government figured out they can make people in the UK hate Unions by triggering a Petrol Panic in claiming the Unions will cause one. Of course there is no strike, so the government should be eating the blowback on this shit.

    Two problems with this:

    1) The infrastructure doesn't exist for us to purchase 176 million lottery tickets.
    2) What if someone else also wins? That return is not, in fact, guaranteed.

    Consequently, I thought all the reaper fights in ME3 were just excellent. There is something very special about carrying a gun that fires the orbital bombardment of an entire armada.

    There was a company that used to do that - they did it once in VA. Lotto is 6/44, jackpot was in the 60-70 mil range.

    They bought like 60% of the possible combinations and walked with a pretty fat chunk of money.
