  • Gamerscore Addict

    I think I'm original in this, but maybe not. I came up with a new word today while browsing my Xbox Live gamerscore in comparison with friends. I submit to you: gamerwhore. I think to be a gamerwhore you should compare your gamerscore to others frequently (I do), but you should have also played NBA […]

Maybe, restoring some of the National Science Foundation budget that the Republican congress yanked out. Maybe boosting student loan […]
