for you guys" IRS investigation in your tax returns and
it certainly isn't and FBI questioning session investigating
some hacking problem(s) or the lack of it.
I was just intrested to know who is the dough earner for GR.
You know with such a splendidly managed site full of resources
and uptodate information "blaa blaa", who is "as mafia guys
would put it" the earner here. Who pays the bills and all?
If it is a top government secret then I would like to become
the selected few to get to know it.
You want to know where the
cash comes from, eh? We must not reveal all, but I can tell you this...

shows as Amazing Discoveries and other infomercials.
In any event, the invention

ok for starters i must say overall you have a very nice
rating system and i find it to be fairly trustworthy.
but i have one complaint. you are obviously rating the
suck butt games first for dreamcast. disney racing.
crappy you say? oh man i didn't see that one coming.

the pc version either......strange. all that i am saying
is that i wish you guys wouldn't take the easy way out

+made some good reviews
+cool grading system
+rant and raves section!

to Nintendo's new Dolphin
until we discovered that it's not tuna friendly. It's true! Nintendo's
Dolphin nets are catching a startling number of the noble tuna fish
While we love the delicious,
juicy taste of Dolphin, we just cannot allow this slaughter of tuna
