    Dammit, I think I've done everything in Mass Effect 2 and it only lasted 32 hours. All my crewmates are loyal except one grayed out spot in my roster. There just aren't any missions left to do.

    Back in my day, RPGs lasted at least 50 hours.

    What difficulty are you on? My playtime of ~60 hours was on the hardest.

    All crewmates are loyal...

    I played on the difficulty above normal but below insanity. Going to go fight this final boss now.

    Complaining that an ARPG with multiple conversations/choices/characters is 32 hours long?

    Really

    Maybe, maybe, if I bought all the DLC mission packs, I could add another 10 hours of fresh content.

    oh, yeah. The DLC (mostly Overlord and Shadow Broker) are awesome.

    @japan , you know things about bikes.

    This year me and a friend will attempt to complete what is called the "Classic". It means that you complete four outdoor races of various kinds.

    One of these things is a one-day 300km bike race. I have a mountain bike that I got when I turned 14, which is well over a decade ago... For that stretch would you consider it possible to buy a good enough bike without paying TEXAS, or should I solely look into renting?

    oh neat, Noam Chomsky is going to be a guest to my college in April

    All I can remember of that guy is that he defended an holocaust denier's right to write stupid books for racist idiots.

    I may be misunderstanding and misremembering, though.

    I do still love playing Secret of Mana.

    I sometimes just chill and hack and slash through an old SNES/PS1 RPG.

    Who says you can't live in the past?

    RPGs were 50 hours long back in the day because you had to farm the same green slime for 20 hours to move on

    I mean, I would defend a holocaust denier's right to write stupid books for racist idiots. It's the only way I still get to write awesome books for racist geniuses.

    I am watching Inside Man! It is rather good!

    The scene where the cops are complete dickholes to the Sikh guy is pretty strange and comes outta nowhere.

    Like, sure they could overreact and whip his turban off.

    Why would anyone, ever, spend the next 20 minutes trying to interview him without giving him his turban back?

    I know Spike Lee likes to show racist people being racist but this is like, mustache twirling villain stuff that feels so out of place.

    Spike Lee didn't write the movie. I imagine that's a reference to post-9/11 War on Terror shit.

    Depends how much you consider to be TEXAS, and whether you need something to train on, as well.

    I don't think I'd want to tackle 300km on a mountain bike, unless it was off-road, but that kind of off-road distance is generally the preserve off ultra-endurance nuts. Renting will probably get you something better than you could buy.

    Seriously, 300km is a long way for a single day.

    I haven't completed it yet. Last I looked I had about 60 hours and I had half the mage thing and the entire dwarf thing left.

    And my ME2 was 60 hours without doing every sidequest, though I did most and scanned some planets (many).

    My RPG's take twice as long as for people I know, but don't know why.

    I love Inside Man! I think it's my favorite bank heist movie. That was actually the first thing I thought of when you asked what a "rub" was earlier.

    Avram Noam Chomsky (/ˈnoʊm ˈtʃɒmski/; born December 7, 1928) is an American linguist, philosopher,[8][9] cognitive scientist, logician,[10][11] historian, political critic, and activist. He is an Institute Professor and Professor (Emeritus) in the Department of Linguistics & Philosophy at MIT, where he has worked for over 50 years.[12] In addition to his work in linguistics, he has written on war, politics, and mass media, and is the author of over 100 books.[13] According to the Arts and Humanities Citation Index in 1992, Chomsky was cited as a source more often than any other living scholar from 1980 to 1992, and was the eighth most cited source overall.[14][15][16][17] He has been described as a prominent cultural figure, and he was voted the "world's top public intellectual" in a 2005 poll.[18][19]
    Chomsky has been described as the "father of modern linguistics"[20][21] and a major figure of analytic philosophy.[8] His work has influenced fields such as computer science, mathematics, and psychology.[22][23] He is credited as the creator or co-creator of the Chomsky hierarchy, the universal grammar theory, and the Chomsky–Schützenberger theorem.
    After the publication of his first books on linguistics, Chomsky became a prominent critic of the Vietnam War, and since then has continued to publish books of political criticism. He has become well known for his critiques of U.S. foreign policy,[24] state capitalism[25][26] and the mainstream news media. His media criticism has included Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media (1988), co-written with Edward S. Herman, an analysis articulating the propaganda model theory for examining the media. He describes his views as "fairly traditional anarchist ones, with origins in the Enlightenment and classical liberalism",[27] and often identifies with anarcho-syndicalism and libertarian socialism.

    Yeah...
