My pinky finger gets the most use when:
  • Playing Guitar
  • Drinking Tea

I don't understand how people can drink tea from such a tiny cup.

My tea cup:

Do our cups reflect our personalities I wonder?

Peat Souper? Interesting. At first glance I thought it read, Meat Pooper.

It tasted like it to be honest .It's a well rated beer so just not to my taste 7% is a bit to spicy for me when it comes to beer. I am more of a 4-5% man for my ales

Edit there I am again with my "to be honest". It is definitely a colloquial thing

We've got one at the store I work that's a 16%.  The Old Fashioned by Southern Tier.   Haven't had that one, myself, but I HAVE had a 14% russian imperial stout from Brewdog, called Radio Zombie Phone In.   Tasted better than I was expecting, honestly!


Btw, what time will it be on the day we find out from Valve? First thing in the morning or like 12pm USA time?

I think we're 6 hours behind here in the UK depending on what part of america Valve is based at. Are Valve in California? 



Washington, actually, but it's the same time zone as California.

Fun fact: Valve is currently facing a lawsuit from their state's native american tribe(s), because they profit from the gambling and sale of their microtransaction items, despite having no gambling license and not being subject to the same rules and regulations that the native american casinos are.  https://www.geekwire.com/2019/valve-hit-illegal-gambling-lawsuit-native-american-nation-operates-cas...

However bad that will be, it's probably nothing compared to the other current lawsuit against them, for violating international anti-trust laws.  Apparently they could be facing up to 10% of their annual global profits in fines for that one.
https://www.theverge.com/2019/4/5/18296527/european-commission-valve-antitrust-objections-games-pric...   Of note:  Valve's close friends at Zenimax and Capcom are also being tried in this case... And Valve is trying to shift all the blame onto them.   😮

Sure is a lot of scandal and potential financial problems to be involved in, right on the verge of a major hardware release!  But Valve basically has unlimited money and influence at this point, so I'm sure it won't derail the Index any more than Zenimax' lawsuit affected Oculus.
It's hard being the voice of reason when you're surrounded by unreasonable people.

Someone should sue them for the 98% of the games in their store being complete pants 😄

That's probably being generous considering they got like 60,000 games lol. 

Yea those lawsuits are small potatoes stuff for Valve. But it is a PR hit. 

I like that steam is a place all developers can experiment and release whatever, but there really needs to be a better way of featuring good games and letting the cream rise to the top. The curator system is too flawed.
