Back in the mid-70's when I lived on Guam (Dad was in the USAF as an aircraft mechanic) I heard some of the other kids in school say that a certain mountain on the island (can't remember its name) was actually taller than Everest if you measured it from the bottom of the Mariana's Trench.
It's classic computer games (all PC so far, but the best games always were, to start with at least.
I was going to go with DOOM instead of QUAKE (since it spawned a whole genre all on it's own, though Wolfenstein had something to do with it) but at four letters it's a bit too easy.
Tomorrow's will not be four letters ...

People who move to the countryside and then start to bitch about noises and smells and tractors that slow down traffic and so on should be tarred and featherd. I am in the council of my village; three months ago people moved in the village (300 inhabitants) and immediately started complaining about the "noise" made by the church bell at 6:30 in the morning, and DEMANDED that we have it stopped. I am just lucky - and they are too - that there was nothing heavy enough in reach to beat the s**t out of them. Of course, in the same time, they do not understand why driving at 1AM through the village at full speed with their Ferrari can be seen as a problem for the inhabitants.
