Interesting observation about GenCon and the "gamer" phase - the wife and I had a blast when we first started going to GenCon, and to be honest, we've had less fun the past couple of years, to the point where we're considering skipping it next year.  I never considered that it could be due to the increase in anime, cosplay, & video games that I've noticed in recent years - not that there's anything wrong with those things, they're just not my particular brand of geekery.  (We're probably also spoiled by having Origins in our town, which is still a pretty hardcore gaming crowd, and offers some nice "all you can play" options for boardgaming, wargame seminars, etc.

The panhandlers were there, they were just pushed out beyond a four-block radius from the convention center.  We ventured a bit beyond that and saw plenty of 'em.

I have Verizon, and my phone was pretty worthless while I was in the con, too - apparently the ICC is just a huge faraday cage to cell towers  :-/

Apparently a roller coaster in Lithuania got stuck, and the riders had to rock in unison to get it to move. Then some genius added music to the video...

For anyone that hasn't tried it, JC2-MP is an insane multiplayer mod for Just Cause 2.  They will be having an open beta test this weekend - and Just Cause 2 is on sale at Steam for nine bucks!
