Recently, I got a GameFly account from a friend. I haven't received anything, yet, but this email... is an example of everything that is wrong with us.

Well, good. I was confused on that matter. Here I've been shaking my 360 to reboot it. Works with my laptop.
The worst part about this is that a lot of people won't see why it is such a fundamentally idiotic email. Our cultural idiocy is amazing.
