Of course it was the blight that was to blame - not the British refusing to allow them access to the rest of the crops that they'd snaffled for themselves...

I'm moving from Grimsby which has one of each to Liverpool which does as well (and 2 CEXs now). My personal sentiment is similar to many ppl's in that I don't like Game's pricing, stocking or attitude.
However, how about a blanced view on the subject?
Game may have other reasons for buying GS than just shutting all their stores (there's the ongoing liability of the leases on the property to consider for a start!). Maybe they want to make sure they have a 2nd-hand arm of their empire to make more room for new games in their main stores.
Only really unprofitabe stores will get shut quickly - many high-street chains delibrately have dual representation to have more floor space (even if selling similar product lines). Would you make a business decision to shut a profitable shop hoping all the customers will go to you other store when there's always the internet stores or onlineauctions as direct competitors?
Maybe there's a computing journo who has the time and contacts to ask Game what their plans are and stay on the story as it develops?
I'm not saying they WON'T close GS stores, only that they may have a strategy - I for one don't know and don't jump to conclusions... I'm not a tabloid newspaper you know ;)

i understand that (at the moment) each leg joint can only be replaced the once, with a prosthetic that lasts 15 years or so (depending on how fat you are?)
if one of these potentially "defective" joints lasts significantly less long than that, surely they've wrecked the individuals mobility?
take them to court! they wouldn't have a leg to stand on!!
(sorry, someone done that one already? damn!)
there must be some room here for a hip-hop joke, but I don't know any.
Of course, this could be turned about for nefarious reasons, posting to the site from a made-up identity and ruining the reputation of an innocent party. Or less innocent, naturally.
Whatever next? Pictures of people having affairs being blackmailed?! That'd make interesting reading...
, who have been selling medions for at least 18 months that I know of - although as part of their weekly offers rather than all the time, but quite regularly.
www.aldi.co.uk has the latest multi-media offering (and i'm actually tempted for once) - or should I wait for the inevitable price war!!!
Is everyone forgetting the principle of conservation of energy?
Each person on this stupid bouncy floor would have to pick up their feet an extra couple of inches to 'step up' to the next paving stone, like climbing a slight incline, and would need to eat or drink the same amount of energy to replace that which is lost by the action of climbing around on a level surface.
Isn't there already a shortage of food production land now that crops are being farmed for bio-fuels?
I am of course ignoring the fact that the majority of people in the West are fat ba57rds who could use hooking up to a grid to electrically harvest their excess intake whilst they stick burgers and lager into their faces, but it's about the scientific principle.
