The Morning After: Does your car need a rear windshield?

You know those folks who say theyd donate a major organ to own a fancy car? Ask them if theyd feel as comfortable sacrificing a rear window instead.

Given how often peoples heads or luggage obscure the backward view, its a trade Im readily prepared to accept.

Tekken director apparently keeps getting requests to add a Waffle House stage

They could call it the Waffle Rough-House.

For the uninitiated, Waffle House is a waffle-centric chain of 24/7 American diners with a reputation for random outbursts of violence. Its apparently so well known that Tekken players have been petitioning the games director to add a Waffle House level. Sadly, it probably wont happen because Waffle House stands accused of underpaying its workers and, given the above context, exposing them to an unsafe working environment.
