    Who puts cookies in the fridge?

    Someone who doesn't want their kids, who aren't strong enough to open the door, getting to them.

    The real question is - why even buy cookies in the first place?

    No junk food - win-win for everyone.
    You must run a mad house! ;)
    My kids don't even ask anymore - because they know there's no cookies in the house :)

    My wife and I are not tempted to eat them either.

    Again - everyone wins
    I agree with your method. I realized the best way to stop eating is to stop buying. 
    meh, a few cookies are fine. If anything it's a good way to teach moderation.

    I believe that life is supposed to be lived.

    I have a friend who tries to never touch anything "bad for you" and then when she does she beats herself up.

    The gentle taste of a Ferrero Rocher makes life just that much better!
  • Do you finish games ?

    Yes, but sometimes it takes a few tries to get through some of the bits.

    Sometimes it means me rethinking how the game is supposed to be played/understood.

    For example, I tried to play Witcher 3 like an elder scrolls game and that just didn't work. Playing it more for the quests worked better.

    i do not understand, they guy got 15m award for just starting the job?? i though you have to do the job for a year at least and if you are good then they will award you?? how come he got 15m award before doing the job, what if he sucks and can not do the job?? they already gave him 15m for nothing, i do not understand this article.
    It's not uncommon to get a starting bonus for a job.

    A friend of mine was given 10k as a starting bonus (clearly not a C level executive).

    Why do people get these bonuses? Well, to attract top talent of course. Especially if these candidates can be courted by other companies.

    Why not promote from the inside?

    Promoting from the inside can be great but it's not always feasible. If no one on the inside has been prepared for such a role then a company will seek to find someone from the outside.

    another reason is if they require a different "point of view" someone who will bring fresh ideas or who will change the company culture if they need it.

    Everyone is really doing everything they can to take away from Steam.
    Competition is a good thing. If this means Steam has to step it up and do somethings better then that's good for the consumer.

  • How did you come up with your avatar/forum name and most pathetic in-game name you used?

    My name comes from the time I was going to try my first mmorpg, Lineage 2. I wasn't going to really play for long but my girlfriend was traveling so I thought it was the perfect time.

    I needed a name on the spot and just took some of the letters from my last name and fashioned this.

    Interesting enough, a guy in my Lineage 2 clan left the game to go to World of Warcraft and told me he was going to use my name.

    Kind of felt weird as I made it up based on my name but what could one do right? I then find out there are all sorts of Sovraths in World of Warcraft!

    Sort of feel like a trendsetter. B)
