Interesting that this study equates thinking with being lazy. Damn extroverts... 
An anonymous reader quotes a report from The Independent: Findings from a U.S.-based study seem to support the idea that people with a high IQ get bored less easily, leading them to spend more time engaged in thought. And active people may be more physical as they need to stimulate their minds with ...

Yet more evidence +Square Enix​ has forgotten it's fan base. Shell out $270 and still need to buy the season pass? Ridiculous.

Course noting how they refuse to enable family share on the Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest titles I've purchased (most of which were over over $10 if not $20) as a loyal fan of 30 years only to be slapped in the face, well, this is precisely why I canceled my Final Fantasy XV and Dragon Quest Builders pre-orders.

Final Fantasy 9 and 7 on Android? Not buying those either, I've already bought the rest and got screwed. I'll give my money to publishers that treat their consumers better.

Like +Microsoft Corporation​ (still feels weird, but Minecraft converted) and others that jumped into the program head first.

Now this is a plan. 
More than 30 major technology and communication companies said on Friday they are joining the U.S. government to crack down on "robocalls," automated, prerecorded phone calls that regulators have labeled a "scourge."

I'm going to hell. Not for this post specifically, of course, but it will certainly earn me a few more jabs with the pitchfork.

Paradoxical Unorthodox Intellectual Geek
Introduction
Devoted dad of two wonderful kids. I currently work as a Sr System Administrator, which really doesn't sound so plausible given my degrees!

I suppose I'm what happens when two polar opposite parents have a child whom apparently pulled every recessive gene from the pool. Somehow it all mashes together into one fairly unusual entity.

I'm a smart ass, definitely more than a little jaded, skeptical, frugal, reserved, contemplative and analytical. Yet somehow people find that appealing, and I've found myself forming long-lasting friendships that defy all logic--you'll either love me or hate me, there is no middle ground!

I love technology, video games, anime and sci-fi/fantasy. I enjoy reading, can't stand most television, and my musical tastes are very hit and miss.

Someday, I might get around to writing an ebook or ten, though I've been saying that for a decade...

Here's my current gadget list:
Galaxy Note II 
Nexus 7 2013 (2 - kids)
Samsung Exynos 5250 Chromebook (2)
3.4Ghz i7-3770, 8GB RAM, 2GB Video w/55" Samsung LED TV & 23" Asus
PS3
Wii

Currently playing: Borderlands 2 (PC), Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes (Android), and I have a big backlog.

So I went off Google reviews, and turned out great. My kids had cheeseburgers and loved them. I tried the sliders with the Trish, Louie and a special burger. Though they were all really good I think the Louie was the best. The nachos were good too, but didn't even come close to the burgers. The staff was super friendly, which isn't common anymore. Definitely another two thumbs up there. My kids were begging to come back again on our way to the car. Seriously, if you're visiting Omaha (or if you live nearby) and like hamburgers, you owe it to yourself to check it out.

I was pretty excited about Legoland, but this was so disappointing. Pick any generic overpriced "kids" place, add a mild Lego theme, and you get Legoland. My kids spent most of our time there in the playground area, which you can find at several area locales for less, if not free. Definitely not a more than once kind of place, and sadly, I'm still on the fence about that. Also of note: it's very small. You could hit everything in two hours flat.

Just amazingly poor service. 45 minute wait after order, paying was a nightmare. I won't ever return.
