Hi everyone! We're doing a survey of Arkadium game players to see what our fans have planned for their summer vacation.

Are you going somewhere tropical?

Someplace foreign?

Or will you be enjoying your summer relaxing in the backyard at home?

Tell us in this brief survey! http://bitly.com/Hveik9

We’ll share the results of the survey with you here!

PS: We're totally doing this survey for fun, but I'm very curious to hear from Jindog - is it actually a government conspiracy to track where everyone is going, or something even more insidious? Wink Post your most creative theories in here too after taking the survey!

GDG-Brian, since you called me out by name you deserve an answer from one and the same....me. I had a thought the other day about that classic Apple ad from years ago during the Super Bowl. I think it is called 1984.
Here it is if you are not aware of it: www.youtube.com/watch?v=OYecfV3ubP8

Anyway, the ad is aimed at the fear of 'government conformity'. And the ever present 'eyes' of BIG BROTHER. Always tracking, always aware of what every citizen is doing. And forever telling them do this, do that. Marching on they do in regulated, controlled conformity.

After watching some video parodies of the under-development 'Google Augmented Reality' glasses
(here's one to watch: www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vb2uojqKvFM&feature=related)
I got to thinking about an updated version of that classic Apple ad. Instead of Big Brother, meaning big government, watching over and controlling the citizenry, it has BIG BUSINESS. Buy this, do this, conform to what we want from you. Constantly being tracked, prodded, coerced, enticed, lured and shamed into doing something for the overseers.....Big Biz.

So, you might think that it is harmless to just say where one is going for vacation. But I can imagine the future, one that isn't too far away, where now I am bombarded with information because my whereabouts is known, coupons to restaurants and motels near where my stay is, offers for this or that, controlled and manipulated all rather innocent looking at first, but where I have ceased being an actual human being and I am just a commodity, being sold and handed off to whomever pays and seeks to gain from me. I am comforted, reassured and told "Everything is under control. Don't worry it is safe."

I read in my daily newspaper yesterday about farms in my state where BIG AGRICULTURE had in the past teamed up with industries to include industrial waste (probably had some nitrogen or other in it) in fertilizers spread over the fields before the state changed its regulations pertaining to fertilizers. (Sounds like China and that scare over melotine added to milk not to long ago, but this was America.) The recent dust-up about 'pink slime' ground beef additive is only the beginning. "It is safe" we are told. See watch the governors of the states where it is manufactured eat a burger made from it. The company may have declared bankruptcy recently, but I can assure you pink slime is not going away. Some other company will continue to process it, although more discretely. Soon, when there are 12billion souls on this planet and farm land is being scorched under temperatures unsuited to agriculture and humans are no longer buried (well at least not remaining for long) and the remains are ammoniated for safety sake and turned into animal food or other (see pink slime) and we are being told via our 'Augmented Reality' glasses, "Everything is fine, everything is safe" we will ask ourselves: 'HOW DID WE GET HERE'.

Like the sex-predator saying to the little girl, "Here little girl, have a piece of candy." it starts with the simple lure. Something desired, a coupon for dinner, a gift card for 'x' number of treats or something else, but it always is the same, something 'free' in exchange. And the little girl will ask, "Where are you taking me?" and the answer is always the same, "Someplace fun". And after the fact the little girl will ask herself, "HOW DID I GET HERE?"

Brian, rambling and disjointed my answer is, but it all starts with being placated and lulled into complicity. Accepting that all is safe. And never asking or saying "WHOA. Is this really safe?"

STANGS ARE YOU IMPLYING THAT JINDOG HAS A RUSTY NAIL IN HIS HEAD. IF SO I MUST ASK - HOW DID YOU KNOW?? JIN I NEVER TOLD ANYONE ABOUT THAT MISSING NAIL IN MY WHEEL CHAIR, HONEST!

AS FAR AS VACATIONS GO I PLAN TO STAY HOME AND LET THE VACATIONERS COME TO ME.

ACTUALLY I FIND THE TERM SUMMER VACATION STRANGE, DOESN'T SUMMER USUALLY FOLLOW SPRING WHICH FOLLOWS WINTER. WELL WHAT HAPPENED TO WINTER????

THIS IS ALL JUST TOO MUCH FOR THIS OLD LADY TO THINK ABOUT.

HAPPY GAMING
PS: BRIAN, BY NOW YOU SHOULD KNOW BETTER THAN TO ENCOURGE JINDOG TO GET ON HIS SOAP BOX! OH MY, OH MY WHAT'S A GAMER TO DO! I KNOW - PLAY GAMES - SEE YOU.

Stangs, do not reveal my whereabouts.
There are traitors to the cause seeking my destruction.
I have taken a disguise and will now disappear.

I am posing as an magician/wizard,
so no one will know my real identity.
zargabut zimwalt (secret code)

GDG Brian, glad I could please you.
You can always count on me
