A Last Name I Would Drop

Yahoo!'s story about the 5 largest drops in wealth around the world brought in this gem;

3. Anurag Dikshit
March net worth: $1.6 billion Current net worth: $1 billion
Dikshit designed the software for PartyGaming's successful PartyPoker game, which allowed live gambling over the Web. He left the company and sold a chunk of shares in 2006, the year the U.S. government banned gaming. He recently pleaded guilty to violating U.S. gaming laws and agreed to forfeit $300 million. He could face up to two years in jail but apparently won't be sentenced until 2010. He has already paid $100 million of his fine and will pay the rest in two installments next year.

So I'm A Sappy Guy

I watched Wall-E with my fiancee last night, and I have to say, it WAAAAAY surpassed both of our expectations.

I wanted to see the movie in the theaters because I had heard it was a good movie, and she didn't want to see it at all. We sat down to watch it and I was fully interested in it after about 5 minutes, and she was enthralled after about 30.

Long story short, the movie is visually and conceptually amazing, and a very good movie to watch with your significant other.
