stoopid tunnel-visioned holier than thou Christians. bah. if you don't want to stand in line on a Sunday and miss church to get a GameCube, fine, but don't tell me it was stupid for us to launch the damn thing on a Sunday. not everyone goes to church on Sunday mornings. we picked a date, and if it happens to fall on the day that you choose to go worship your god, then so be it.

i just get tired of it. my entire family is like to, to varying degrees, and it's frustrating. this country is not here to serve the Christians and make their lives easier, even if they are the majority religion currently (as least, i think they are, anyone know where i can find numbers?) I've never had, say, a Jewish person call me up at any job and complain "man, i just can't believe that you're closed on Sundays! I have temple on Saturday and I can't go anywhere, and Sunday is my free day and nothing is open." i'm sure they exist, but it's not a complaint i've ever gotten.

I completely agree with you on that.

Sunday: Church
Monday: It's a monday -- mondays suck. You can't release on a monday! I have to work and whine about it.
Tuesday: Too close to monday. Same reason. Besides, Blockbuster releases new movies on Tuesdays.
Wednesday: Over the hump day. Too depressing. Besides, preparing for the weekend.
Thursday: Weekends begin on Thursday. I can't get a GameCube! I have to drink until the world spins in the other direction!
Friday: Friday begins the Jewish Sabbath at sundown. No can do.
Saturday: Sabbath. Geez... so insensitive to religious concerns.

How dare you release a product on a day. Shame on you!


Hope you're having a good day. :-)

i am, actually. =] so far everyone's been fairly easy going to deal with, except the lady who sparked this little rant.

Think about this: if it's even annoying, even a question, even a remote consideration, for a second, about whether to get the Gamecube, or whether to go to church, what does that say about the person's real feelings on church?

That's what the lady's pissed about. Having to sit up and make that choice.
