    Pure coincidence I hope, SLG.
    It's a good game but the main character is so poorly underdeveloped that he comes across as a "Gary Stu" individual. It's also next-to-impossible to tell if suspects are lying or not. It relies on sheer dumb luck.

    I walked into the bathroom and saw a sweaty obese man using the urinal with his gym shorts pulled down to his knees. He had set two unopened water bottles on the counter. I assume he planned to down them so he can make some other poor, unsuspecting soul uncomfortable with his fat, pasty ass as soon as possible.

    That's one nice thing about being a woman. Our worst bathroom first world problem involves listening to the phone conversations other people have while sitting on the toilet.

    Once I walked into a bathroom and went to the urinal. There was someone in a stall who had just finished a #2. He came out, went to the sink, wetted his hands for all of one second without soap and then brushed them through his hair. He then opened the door and left. So there I was now scarred forever. I refuse to touch bathroom door handles.

    Ah, bathroom stories. I do research at a university lab so you routinely see people wearing latex gloves. Well, one day I went to the bathroom and there was already a person in a stall. I went to pee in another stall and afterwards, as I was washing my hands, I see a woman emerge from the other stall, latex gloves on, and heads straight for the door and back into the lab.

    Yeah, you can do it. You've just got to be really close to the car, which generally means running in front of it to force it to stop. And you're right about the game -- the gameplay had some problems, but it looked gorgeous and the cases and atmosphere were fantastic. If you approach it not for the thrills of gameplay, but as an interactive film noir storytelling machine, there's a lot to appreciate.

    Really? Because just last week I walked into the women's bathroom at work and there was a fecal explosion all over the toilet and walls of a stall.

    Anyone get hit on while trying to go #2 in a public restroom? Not fun.

    I used to clean bathrooms as part of a job- I can verify that the genders are quite equal when it comes to horrifying creations.

    I'm in the middle of another winter storm, and the power to the part of the house with my room (and my computer) has gone out a couple times in the last hour.

    People at the grocery story today went in the express lane with carts loaded with groceries, looked back at me and my two items, thought for a moment, then continued on with their groceries that exceeded the "fifteen items or less" criteria for the express lane. This **** will not stand.

    I don't go full cart, but I am known for exeeding the 12 item limit and lacking concern about the plight of others.

    Except you checked back, and my retort was hardly a retort and definitely not witty. :p

    A 'friend' of mine posted a link on FB about the snowstorm in GA being a false flag attack of some kind and I wasted a minute of my life reading it.

    I got parsnips in my organic seasonal vegetable home deliver box and I don't care for parsnips.

    My Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 8 fell out of my pocket and into the bathtub when I was giving my toddler a bath. It went completely under and my heart skipped a beat, as I was sure that I would have to suffer without a phone for a day or so until I found the time to head over to T-mobile and replace it (and what if they didn't have one in stock?!).

    But by some miracle, Nokia's ads bragging about how durable their phones are proved true, because the Lumia emerged simply cleaner than it was when it fell under water. Screen was still sharp, sound was still playing, voice commands still operating...

    Anyway, I guess what I'm saying is that I almost had a first world problem.
