Memoraphilia sounds good.

Makes sense to start off with my newest pretty, the signed rit below. Didn't include it in the deck because it is signed -- still considering on that. The other drits are shifted, upside down back, lightly printed and yellow hued respectively. http://i239.photobucket.com/albums/ff281/twol84/Drits_zp...

Still short of 1 delta. The list needs to be shorn of 1 crit and 1 petal. SB might get reworked as I don't like swarm and carpet that much -- need to fit a bayou in, potentially YPs. The pics with normal stuff and misprinted stuff is just to show what comes in for the normal stuff. For instance, mis...

What do you mean with "unhealthy"? That depends on how you define the value statement of the game. I would define that as a mass product engineered to provide entertainment to people who are interested in a strategic game that circumvented the pitfalls of sunk costs. To the extent that developments...

I don't want to confuse the ontology of that statement with its interpretation and exactness. I'm not saying $2000 is the number that dilineates okay vs too much. You can pick whatever number makes sense for a game vs whatever number is too much and decide where the cookie crumbles on your own. I th...

Honestly, $2000 manabases for legacy decks isn't a good thing.

They'd run at least a couple thousand each for the crap ones. One moved recently, but I don't think I can disclose the actual transaction price. I've posted some other pics elsewhere too.

I recall these being listed on ebay a few years ago. I can't see any way in which these are test prints, to be honest. Can anyone else see a difference in these cards?

Well, as bad as you may wish to make this a philosophical debate, it is not. This whole real life situation is far to serious to philosophise about and I resent your attempt to show off at the expense of those who are suffering. Are you serious? It isn't a philosophical debate, it is a debate that ...

You could draw that comparison, but you need to prove that the correlation isn't negligible. I work in JPM. We just got hit with huge fines for illegal manipulation of credit indices in Europe. Does it mean that I am more likely to behave in such a fashion, when that decision was made by a bunch of...

The point about the company has a very direct barring on the issue. I thought it would be obvious but I guess I need to explain it. It has been shown in a number of researches that there is such a thing as a corporate mentality. This, in turn, influences the modus operandi (MO) of those associated ...

You don't judge a Chinese by the communist slant and corruption of the Chinese government, do you? Do you not judge a representative of the communist Chinese Govt this way? This guy has a job/duty and not just some guy on the corner of the road... Try and make logical arguments if you want to prove...

A terrible tragedy, but let's not get overly vindictive. I agree, we should not be OVERLY vindictive. It come to light yesterday that the owners of the company have extensive US investments and holdings. Condos, business, etc. yet they reported an operating loss of $756,000 last year. One of their ...
