Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that. It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece. I strongly recommend anyone...

Here's a better word than "plethora" that I just came
up with, tell me what you think :-)

Subject: Got a question? Concern? Comment? Better
word than "plethora?" Enjoy your list of new words
an awful lot
In respone to one of the
letters in last week's mailbag, we
got a plethora of suggestions of words synonymous with "plethora."
Rather than reprint the veritable plethora of entries here, we decided
to post just a few of 'em.
We owe you guys a surplusage
Poking The Beholder In The Eye

Ok, as you all know, there is an ever growing question
as to who is hotter. I know this is probably a waste
of your time, however, I still think you could
enlighten us. So, Brooke Burke or Jules Asner?
Well, they're both certainly
hot, though it's really a matter of opinion. Duke, for instance, doesn't
think any girl is hot unless she's either married to him or from the
18th century. Ben thinks
Brooke and Jules are fine, but neither one holds a candle to Chrissie

Lord Of The Races
From: "Griffin Grinnell"
One day I went to see the movie Lord of the Rings The Fellowship
of the rings. It came to a part in the movie where it told how
Orcs were made.They were once elves but then tortured and turned
into orcs. I was at your sight and saw a preview about Warcraft 3.
One race was orcs and another one was dark wood elves.
Is there any difference between the two races? Thanks, your
Are there differences between
Orcs and Dark Wood Elves? Most certainly! For starters, Orcs are evil
while Dark Wood Elves
are just sort of in a bad mood all the time. Orcs have really gross
skin, while Dark Wood Elves have great complexion. Orcs tend to say
things like, "Graar! Og eat halfling! Graar!" while Dark Wood
Elves say things like "Fancy a bite of a halfling, darling? Be
a dear and pass the basil." Orcs also smell like old socks, while
dark Wood Elves smell like brand new socks.
