The Top 7 Girl Gamer Stereotypes
For Norris’ sake, we all know that girls play games. They play “hardcore” games, "casual" games, strategy games, adventure games, fighting games, mind games, games games games all the time every day. Can we stop with the “girl gamer” nonsense? Of course not, at least, not until we overanalyze every last stereotype you're subjected to. If you're lucky enough to be one of these "normals" we keep hearing about - you know, people who just enjoy playing games - be glad that you can't be lumped into a rigid category like those below. We’ve already dissected a variety of other stereotypes (with insulting illustrations!), so don’t go saying we only pick on the ladies. We love women, some of us are women.

Going to spend my afternoon playing World Of Warcraft butt naked & stoned. Perfect Sunday!” But most of the World Of Warcraft (WoW) geeks who twittered back were wondering whether to call bull***t on her.

10 Incredibly Unnecessary Horror Movie Sequels
There's a difference between a necessary sequel and an unnecessary sequel. Ghostbusters 2 needed to happen. Same with The Dark Knight, same with Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, same with The Matrix: Reloaded (although in that case, we didn't know what we were asking for). When a movie leaves the audience wanting more, we're psyched when they deliver. On the other hand, Leprechaun Back 2 the Hood didn't need to happen. Neither did Jason X, King Kong Lives, nor The Birds 2: Land's End. They could have been done in one, but no, someone decided to whore those sequels until every last dollar was made. So, for your enjoyment and edification, here's 10 of the least necessary sequels to horror films that were ever made.

11 Computer Things I Just Can't Get In To
I spend a ton of time in front of a computer. During a standard day, I'm in front of a computer for at least 12 hours. And that's actually down from a few years ago. Because of this deep, deep relationship between myself and my computer, I tend to give a lot of different computer- and Internet-related things a try, to see if they're going to make my computing experience better, happier, more convenient, whatever.

But not everything sticks. This list is 11 computer things that I've tried to get into... but I just can't.
