All Thumbs

Here it is, stupid Americans!At the three-way intersection of Loser Street, Geek Avenue, and Nerd Boulevard, you'll find a crowd of folks waiting on line to buy a PlayStation 3. If you don't believe me, swing by Crossgates, where people are camped out (camped out!!) to buy the game system at Best Buy when it's released tomorrow. Not everybody's in line to satisfy their own adolescent urge to avoid reality. From the Times Union:
Mark Patterson, a promotions staffer with the WFLY (92.3) radio station, was waiting on line for PlayStation 3 -- but not for the same reason as everyone else. He and co-workers hope to give the system away to a radio station caller.
Whoa....that's like, loser cubed ---or loser to the tenth power or something. Follow all the action from the line at Mark McGuire's blog.
