    It’s “Wisconsinites.”

    Are we really that well known for politeness? We always say that about Canadians…

    I’m very point-based as well, but I use an Android phone. For those waiting for Chore Hero to port to Android, there’s an app called Task Hammer. It’s the only to-do app that’s worked for me with its blend of points and RPG elements.

    Hi! Recently, I was working on interactive fiction, and did some research on Choose Your Own Adventures… You mentioned a CYOA story that does have a Utopian ending which you have no way of getting to, and you mentioned wanting to find it again. The name of the book, I believe, is “Inside the UFO 54-40” (http://ask.metafilter.com/133125/A-Choose-Your-Own-Adventure-that-you-couldnt-win) which had a number of weird twists and turns. One person postulates that there may have been a page to solve a math problem or some other puzzle that was an in-text clue, to get you there, but it is generally agreed that this Utopian ending is unreachable by conventional means.
