So I bought my shiny shiny Nintendo DS Lite last night. And got a great deal from Argos. €149 for the console, a game[1] and an accessory pack. So basically I paid for the console and got the rest of the stuff for free. I also bought one of those Brain Training thingies. Which was supposed to cost 30 quid,

It has become something of a habit with me that I spend a while browsing through AskMetaFilter reading the odd question and answer. Which is where I came across the question Do Waitstaff hate Change?, and in the middle of all the answers[1] was the fact that people usually tip 1.00 to 2.00 dollars on each drink in a bar.

A big name in the business community. But Mr. Brooks has another side to him; he likes to kill. He believes himself addicted to murder, and every now and then he falls off the wagon and his alter-ego, Marshall, gets what he wants, a murder.
