I'm glad Mac fanboys gave up that fight and moved on to phones, which they also lost.

The kid that preferred PS4 was the only one who seemed to have any sort of grasp on the English language. The rest of them were raised by apes. Are kids really that illiterate at 8 years old these days? Jesus.

When I was eight, I got a Sega Genesis for Christmas. I also had very good sentence structure, grammar, and punctuation skills even then.

I was better off than most of these kids around that age are right now, in other words.

/Seriously, there was quite a bit of phonetic spelling and reasonable guesses at what letters went where for the most part. The kids will get it as long as they read enough to remember some of those weirder spelling quirks of the English language.

Funny how certain actors played different characters in the various Star Trek iterations. One I never noticed that someone pointed out in the comments: the alien guy pictured from the Symbiosis episode was also one of the bad guys in The Wrath of Khan. Then I looked it up and found out the other guy in Symbiosis was Captain Kirk's son in ST: II and III.

Then of course there's the picture of James Cromwell with a mustache as a prime minister of some alien planet, long before he was Zefram Cochrane in Star Trek: First Contact.

Kinda.  It was really a bore, and it wasn't cute.  They just wrote what they know.  Yeah, many kids can't spell, wow, ha.  The only thing that stood out was how pompously the presenter read the notes and how he intentionally mispronounced things the kids had very clearly spelled CORRECTLY phonetically.

Funny thing is none of it looks impressive...

I always find it funny, some will spend regular money into a system and a bunch of accessories that because of brand and such are "amazing", but aren't, and claim to have a kick-ass system.

Maybe to the average Facebook soccer mom, but seriously... meh...

At least get decent furniture and have a true setup that a evil genius bent over taking the world would be happy with.

I custom built my desk extension to handle my system and the extra equipment, wasn't hard, wasn't that expensive, looks great and very functional.  I'm have to get a picture once I clean my office up.. to much papers to file and toys to put away.

I'm not at home to take a picture of my PC setup but I'm running a component 5.1 system built with salvaged and restored Hi-Fi towers and a 50" Sony bravia display.  My PC is on the other side of the wall and the only hint you can see of it is the fact that my xbox controller is plugged into a USB cord that goes through the wall. My next addition is modern towers as it's extremely hard to find any new receivers that are able to properly power the 12" subs in the towers (they are rated up to a kilowatt FFS)  Once that is done I'll be looking for a modern receiver because despite being fully DTS capable the brand new TV doesn't recognize it as such and puts a big warning on the screen any time it attempts to pass through DTS audio even though the receiver switches to DTS and correctly outputs the audio.

I also need to pick up a sound card to encode game audio to DTS or Dolby as I only get stereo in games.

Depending on the speakers, you don't really need the subwoofer either.

I still like the rear channels; it's always nicely disorienting to hear birds chirping behind you.
