    One of these men cares about video games, competitive scoring, the preservation of history, friends, honor, truth, love of family and country. The other one is Patrick Peterson.

    I have taken many photos of people over the years. Hundreds of thousands actually! ( I do finish line photography for marathons). Here are some of my favorite "people pics":

    I voted reject on a submission. I made my opinion clear as well (no evidence uploaded). Now it looks like I dropped 150 points because the rejection went through.

    The engineering world is doing incredible things. The Falcon Heavy just launched a car into space AND the booster rockets landed themselves. Incredible achievement.

    I think it would be nice if there was an area on Twin Galaxies that could showcase awesome videos in TG's posession. Clips, episodes of Settle it on the Screen, marathons, goodies you find in boxes, etc.

    Just an idea.
