Back in the day, someone had to stand on the Senate floor for twelve hours and read Dr. Seuss or whatever to filibuster. I heard that now they just have to threaten it and it works - they don't even have to be in DC.
If the filibuster were kept, is there any proposed way to legally require an endurance event? It's one of those things that would be tricky to define technically I think.

Are there any rule variations that you favor? Maybe alternate dictionaries?
Are you satisfied that the competition structures even out whatever randomness is introduced by the tile draw, or is that not really a factor?

Are you doing the same show every night like Broadway, or different acts?

I don't pay much attention to what's cutting edge in AAA games these days, but I'm watching a play-through of The Last Of Us and the animation is really impressive to me. Particularly the meshing of and handing off between procedural, mo-capped, and hand made animation. I've written my share of state machines to handle simple walk/run/idle type stuff but this just blows my mind.
My question is: what does the person with the title "Animator" do, given how much of the character's movement is handled in code? How much of your time is spent working directly with coders?
