    Probably important to note that it’s being recommended by a group of students as part of their semester-long course project at OSU..

    Isn’t most development selfish? These aren’t being built by Habitat for Humanity.

    Tropico 5 is on sale for $19.99 this weekend. Has anyone tried it out? Is it worth the pick up?

    It’s not bad. A little cumbersome copared to the old ones IMO. Honestly you’d be fine getting Tropico 3 or 4 and then get 5 later if you want more scenarios to play through.. its basically the same experience.

    While I agree that charging for the CBUS will kill it, why should the young affluent people that CBUS targets get free transportation while the city’s poor, who are increasingly pushed away from the CBUS service area, have to pay?

    I get that it’s to help spur business activity.. just something to think about.

    You live in a heavily bar-filled area one mile away from one of the largest college campuses in the country, and you complain about college kids being around? What exactly were you expecting?

    I know VV and Harrison West are getting more and more pricey, but you might check out the complexes back behind the Neil Ave Giant Eagle. They’re not a bad walk to the AD.

    I’m not sure if their datacenter affiliate counts for that?

    Officially done. I wonder if he will just go on to the draft, or redshirt this year and play again next? Honestly I think it’d be better to just pass the torch rather than give Barrett a full season and then make him sit a full season next year and slow his development.

    I’m excited to see what Barrett can do.. from all accounts he’s a winner. Expectations are lowered, but the team certainly isn’t terrible now because of this setback. It will be fun to watch what OSU does finally playing as the underdog in a few games.

    There are no sources and no indication of what the injury is or how bad it is.. yeah I think it’s a little early to write-off the entire team/season, even if he is out. With the amount of info on the dispatch right now it could be anything from a little soreness to his arm being ripped off.

    While most places have *something* I think what he was getting at in the first post was that usually you go and have one or two options. That’s fine and all, but as a vegetarian/vegan it is great to go somewhere, open the menu, and see that you have a ton of options to chose from rather than just getting the token veg dish. It’s not bad at all eating at most places in Columbus, like Walker said most places in town have something thought-out on the menu, but it is refreshing and fun to go somewhere like Loving Hut and have the run of the place.

    Love Mazah, Alladin, Aab as suggested above. Most Chinese places around town have plenty for vegetarians, so any good Chinese restaurant will almost certainly also be a good vegetarian restaurant. Moys on campus has some of my favorite tofu.

    Banana Leaf is great for a little different style of Indian (southern), Dosa Corner as well. Loving Hut out in Reynoldsburg is all vegan and really good. Explorer’s Club is great and always has plenty to chose from. Dirty Franks can make most all of their hot dogs vegetarian or vegan. Hal and Al’s gets a lot of love from what I’ve seen, though to be honest I didn’t like what I got there and felt like I made the same thing easily at home.

    These are just a few of my personal favorites.. there are plenty more, and most any place in town will have at least a couple options like you said.

    Once place I’ve been meaning to try is Whole World, or something similar to that.. whoever has the broccoli burger stand at Comfest? I got a vegan gyro there this year and thought it was great (though admittedly that was after a few beers clouding my judgement).

    Life expectancy and marrying age were a lot different 1000, or even 200 years ago – there’s a reason most traditional coming-of-age (to marry) rites happen in the 13-16 year range. Today, sexualized tweens are considered tragic (outside the pageant circuit), but it wasn’t always so.

    I get that. So not to sound strange, but it’s not the sexualization that bothers me with the ages (mainly because I haven’t encountered too much of that in the book yet). It’s the fact that I’m supposed to root for or identify with children who are 13/14 years old and capable of commanding armies and making important decisions. ;)

    I know what you mean especially after reading Ender’s Game, which is even worse with that. I spent the first 90% of the book thinking, why the hell are these people not just commanding their space army themselves instead of waiting for some 6 year old kid to get training?

    Just got Game of Thrones on my kindle through the library.. hopefully I can finish the thing within the borrowing window!

    It was front and center on dispatch.com when he was announced.

    “Two females rubbing their chests together. Their nicknames were “Jewoobs” and “Tiggles.””

    Part of me can’t believe this stuff.. the other part wishes I had been in the band…
