Halo, Part Deux

This guy waited in line at midnight last night so he could purchase Halo 2, a long-awaited XBox video game:

From his pocket, [20-year old Alexander] Muir pulled his raison d'Ítre last night -- a tiny newspaper clipping mounted to cardboard. The words, from one of the game's designers, he knew by heart.

"Halo 2 is a lot like Halo," he recited. "Only it's on fire, going 130 miles per hour through a hospital district chased by helicopters and ninjas."

That quote made me laugh out loud.

That is all.
