BBspot Mailbag

Now you too can enjoy my Inbox without the annoying spam. Every week I get some amazing e-mail. Some amazing because of the sheer cluelessness of the sender, some because of the time and energy that went into crafting them and some are just simply amazing.


Our story about Craig's List snagged some BBelievers...

That guy has some enemies...

The persistent Esenam Ayele BBelievers responded to my goofy replies from last week...

Esenam said: No, I don't know what those things are. I prefer watching frog races at the county fair. Especially when we get to eat the winner.

eat the winner's frog? hahaha... are you serious?.. you bake it first or do you eat it alive? or maybe just put a ketcup first? some people just don't believe it, but in indonesia you can fing almost every food made from various animal..

Oh no, how far can this go?

And the other guy...

Esenam said: I think you may be right, so I went to my doctor and he gave me some little red pills to take. He said they should make me feel better. Do you think I should trust Dr. Morpheus?

opps.. i guess it's okay, give my best regards to Dr. Morpheus.. also my regards for his father .. Prof. Hypnos.. also for his little brother phobetor and phantasos. Hopefuly they can makes you do a craziest thing this year just like what you do last year.. goodluck then..


Social Mordor

One BBspotter noticed something peculiar about the geek's social map...

I'm sure I'm not the first to comment on this, but I couldn't help but notice that you put the Microsoft apps in Mordor. I can't imagine why.

Hmm... I wonder how that happened?

The Orange Box

In my box review of The Orange Box, I lamented the fact that my actual box was black plastic instead of orange. A few readers have written in to tell me that I got screwed...

Sorry you didn’t get the orange Orange Box—the preorder version I bought actually was made of orange plastic. The games are great, and the packaging was, as advertised, orange, but, as a long-time RPG buyer, I found it a bit lacking in the extras—the quick-reference card was OK, but not quite up to the 75-100 page manual, cloth map, mini-figure, vorpal sword, and special rule-interpretation goggles for making sure you’re properly min-maxed that I’m used to.

Keep on writing and I’ll keep reading,

I think you used a low-quality copy for your game box review; my copy of The Orange Box is indeed made out of orange plastic. See attached low-quality webcam picture for evidence.

I'd complain to Valve if I was you.

The Orange Box

Valve you need to come through for me. Where's my "orange" box?

Weekly Limerick

The winner of the 2003 and 2006 Geek Limerick contest has volunteered to write a weekly limerick for BBspot. Seth also has a new book coming out that you should take a look at..

From: Seth

Schering-Plough's execs just lost their smirk;
Their competitor's drug seems to work.
Now that Crestor is scoring,
Zetia and Vytorin's
Producers have just gotten Mercked.
