->Despite these dubious advertising tactics[[note]]including the Ooze $104,000 competition[[/note]], at first, it seemed to work; a fair few [copies of VideoGame/{{Action 52}}] did sell. But, unfortunately, this all backfired pretty quickly. Word-of-mouth began to spread: [[ObviousBeta the games were a mess - some of them didn't even work]] - and [[CrackIsCheaper the price was insulting]]. Bear in mind, the [[UsefulNotes/SuperNintendoEntertainmentSystem Super Nintendo]] cost $200 on launch, and [[WhatAnIdiot Action 52 was asking for the exact same price]]!

->Bean-counters told me we literally could not afford to buy $7 worth of moon rocks, much like $70 million. Bought 'em anyway! Ground 'em up, mixed 'em into a gel. And guess what? Ground-up moon rocks are pure poison. [[TooDumbToLive I am deathly ill.]]

->Fido: What exactly is an 'open' and 'closed' relationship again?\\
Ken: Well, in many cultures, including the one I was raised in, you kinda are expected to only... spend the nights with your mate-slash-romantic-partner, and nobody else.\\
Fido: ... That's odd... only thing I gotta go on here is genetic memory, and with hell hounds, their living situation is, um...\\
Ken: Yeah, that's why interspecies relationships often stumble over misunderstandings.

->The ending of [[Literature/HisDarkMaterials TAS]] is brilliantly written. It has a profound effect on the sensitive reader. It can leave you feeling upset for days, and the first reaction is to try to think of ways in which this terribly unfair (or so it seems) conclusion can be reversed. [[FixFic The temptation to rush to the keyboard and fix Philip Pullman’s ending is hard to resist.\\
->But wait. Please. Think about it a little. This book is "stark realism", as PP has said. Or to put it another way, bad things happen to good people. It’s simply the way the universe is made. (...) A sacrifice has to be complete and irreversible if it is to have any meaning. It’s all as straightforward as that.

->At the 2007 video game convention {{E3}}, {{Activision}} hired Jamie Kennedy to host their press conference. And I know what you're thinking: the nerd-pounding alpha male coming off the Oscar-snubbed hit ''Kickin' It Old Skool'' and a room full of video game players? This is going to be a bloodbath!\\\
That's what he thought, too. He was going to dominate these stupid nerds so hard that he didn't bother to prepare. He got wasted and went on stage with nothing more than a few talking points about [[NeverHeardThatOneBefore nerds not getting laid]]...His drunken train wreck got shredded in the press. Jamie didn't get this explained to him, but [=E3=] is the biggest media event for the biggest media industry. Most of the audience members he was mocking were journalists, and dozens if not hundreds of them wrote about it. Activision found out that if you show someone the 28th ''TonyHawksProSkater'' game and then have a boozy actor disrespect their genitals, one of those events is more notable.

->In general, [[RousingSpeech a sports speech]] is delivered mostly to satisfy the ego of the person delivering it. Watch any NFL Films clip of Ray Lewis firing up his teammates for the eight thousandth time if you’d like proof...If you’ve watched enough movies where the hero gives a speech, (''{{Film/Braveheart}}'', ''{{Film/Gladiator}}'', ''{{Film/Patton}}'', etc.), pretty soon you picture yourself doing likewise. Because in those movies, the players and/or soldiers are just automatons. The leading is more lionized than the action. I’ve muttered '''UNLEASH HELL''' to myself a thousand times at completely random moments. There’s the illusion that your words have such remarkable power that they can magically unlock the talents and ambitions of those around you. MY WORDS! MY POWERFUL WORDS! Everyone wants to be seen as a leader. Everyone wants to be followed. Everyone wants what they say to matter and have a tangible effect on the real world.

->“YOU MUST BAKE! Yeast is in your BLOOD! SUGAR IS YOUR LIFE FORCE! SPREAD THE JOY OF BUTTER!” among the women who run it. The bakery is work. It’s work they love, and they use recipes that are a family heirloom of experience and technique, but it is not an experience during which destiny and magical baker dust combine to protect them from the utter boredom of payroll, or the drudgery of cleaning. The bakery is a vocation, and a job, and it is an equal part of luck and labor that yield the success they’ve had so far. If Sophie had a motto on the wall, it’d probably be that ‘Luck is where opportunity and preparation meet.” Sophie works her ass off, as do her grandmother and the rest of their employees, and I had a lot of respect for her for that aspect of her character alone.
