    Bah ... you guys sucked at my little contest about why I was modding instead of playing Portal 2.
    I still want to celebrate this fine game, so the first person to post how many calories are in 354 grams of Beaver meat (that matches what I have) gets a free copy of Witcher 2 sent to their Steam account.
    Yeah, I'm borderline insane. That's why you guys love me. :)

    I just got done with Portal 2 I really thought it was going to be a better ending. Game was very short and easy i found my self spending most of my time just messing around or exploring this easily took less than 6 hours. Was also hoping for some challenges likes in Portal. But i still like the game a lot.

    Sense this didn't happen I will say

    I thought that the 2 people in charge where going to be the parents of the main player.

    The ending song lyrics:rockout:

    Now I Only Want You Gone

    Well here we are again.
    It's always such a pleasure.
    Remember when you tried to kill me twice?
    Oh how we laughed and laughed,
    except I wasn't laughing.
    Under the circumstances
    I've been shockingly nice.

    You want your freedom?
    Take it.
    That's what I'm counting on.

    I used to want you dead
    but
    Now I only want you gone.

    She was a lot like you
    (Maybe not quite as heavy)
    Now little Caroline is in here too.

    One day they woke me up
    So I could live forever.
    It's such a shame
    the same will never happen to you.

    You've got your
    short sad
    life left.
    That's what I'm counting on.
    I'll let you get right to it
    Now I only want you gone.

    Goodbye my only friend
    Oh, did you think I meant you?
    That would be funny
    if it weren't so sad.

    Well you have been replaced
    I don't need anyone now
    When I delete you maybe
    I'll stop feeling so mad

    Go make some new disaster
    That's what I'm counting on
    You're someone else's problem
    Now I only want you gone.
    Now I only want you gone.
    Now I only want you
    gone.

    I had 750.48, but close enough. PM your Steam name and I'll send a friend request and the game is yours. Good job.

    What? A swallow carrying a coconut?
    It could grip it by the husk!
    It's not a question of where he grips it! It's a simple question of weight ratios! A five ounce bird could not carry a one pound coconut. In order to maintain air-speed velocity, a swallow needs to beat its wings forty-three times every second, right?

    Yeah thats what I had too, but figured rounding down would be the best, 2.12 calories per gram.

    Right on the money. Another Google expert. :roll:

    If you already have Witcher 2, let me know.

    Yeah, it's a good game, I got to start on the SP now.

    Your love for Beaver meat just isn't as strong as mine.

    Easter Eggs? How about potatoes in EVERY scene. Potatoes, potatoes everywhere. Best Easter Eggs are in the display case at Aperture Science Innovators. Shower curtain salesman of the year 1943, etc. Also, notice ashtrays everywhere in the buildings, tons of personality.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but if Glados and Wheatly really want Chell dead how hard is it to just keep doors from opening or prevent those levitating lifts from working.

    I mean just trap her and she will die from starvation or something. I love the game but this just seems odd? I just go with he is so dumb he doesn't realize it but then what about Glados?

    Because it is stated in the game that when they are hooked up to the "mainframe" or whatever, that they are compelled to put Chell through tests.

    I understood that but then killing her seems like a contradiction if they are so compelled to test her. Like the parts where Chell isn't even testing and he traps her just to try and kill her? Like I said if he wants her dead so bad just starve her to death and prevent lifts and such from working? Or is it that they were designed to not kill and thus fail at it and perceive humans as being much like robots in that the don't need food or water to live? Or am I looking way to much into the matter. :/

    Me and Ufgy just beat the 4 levels of Co-op, and worked through 5 tests on the 5th bonus level, it's funny when you complete one and realize that isnt how it was intended to be done, one of our strategies involved him dieing.

    Can someone with a copy of portal 2 for ps3 help me activate a steam code for ps3. I bought a code on ebay not realizing you have to jump through all the hoops on a PS3 which I do not have. I would even be willing to sling you a few bucks via paypal for your effort.

    my housemates can help. shoot me a PM.

    edit: nope cant help, no longer have the disc here.


    FYI, whoever does activate it for you will need a PS3, a copy of portal 2, and your steam login details. so make sure its someone you trust, and set a new, weak password before you get them to do it (and then reset it after)
