Re: Can a videogame make you cry?

Wow, can't believe no one had mentioned it when I searched the topic, but definitely Lost Odyssey. That game made me cry a few times. Other games have come close, but that's the only one that I definitely remember doing the job. Also, this is more music than game, but: http://in.youtube.com/watch?v=...

Re: The Book Challenge

"Therefore, a 100% yield is required; none of the material present in the sample can be lost during the analysis."

The nearest book that isn't a textbook gives:

"You have a great deal of unexploited land here, Mayor."

What exciting results!
