Good games to play at LAN parties

So recently, a group of people and I at the university I attend have started holding weekend LAN parties. Our last one was Warcraft III, and our next one will probably be Sins of a Solar Empire. However, nobody seems to have a ton of ideas over what games we should play; are there any you guys would...

Re: Bill O'Reilly, Victim Blamer Extroidinaire

To joshz, I have no idea what we could do to decrease the risk of rape by trusted friends. Nor did I purport to. But you did imply women could lower their risk of being raped by (not) doing certain actions. My post pointed out that that was false since most rapes are committed by people the victim ...
