I mean, OK, so if you lost both your arms in a shark attack, this thing would be frickin' lifesaver. But for those of us with functioning arms and a fresh roll of T.P., is this really any sort of improvement?

I love my Roomba and whenever it wanders into my office during its cleaning duties, I shout "Yay! Robot!" However, frankly, I'm not sure I want a robot arm to extend out and squirt my undersides. Ever.

On to other, more lofty, topics. A lot of game companies were exhibiting at ComicCon this year. And now I'm getting tons of invitations to GenCon as well.

Even some of the game-specific conventions are getting huge, and are featuring the world's creepiest weddings. I have photos and she has to be at least 20 years older than he is.

Did any of you go to ComicCon this year? GR's Greg Damiano was there, and if you really want to see how much it has changed, check out this photo gallery from ComicCon in 1982.
