FB manipulated feeds to see how the nature of content impacted users' emotions. Did Zuckerberg come up with this idea? Marketers and politicians have been aware of this relationship for centuries.

To end on a positive note, I'll extend a happy 4th of July to you folks ahead of time. Especially any Brits. (y)

I knew Steam sales were rigged. Red won too many times by too much of a margin.

I've always believed that if "Wubba" was a Kennedy, they'd have kept him in an attic where he belonged, and Rose Kennedy, would have redoubled her efforts toward fighting mental retardation.

And yet, the president who, (at one point (?)), achieved the lowest approval rating in our history, somehow managed to make Tony Blair his bit*h.

The two standout reasons for that might be:
Blair's public school upbringing - maybe just a little too used to fagging, or (conspiracy theory 101) maybe Bush was a degree (or more) higher at the lodge.

I went from owning 0-games as brand new to the medium to 68-games and I was on Red Team. Granted, there are millions of us participating in this and my number hardly moves the needle, but my guess is any team would've benefited in comparison with like of my situation on their squad...
