Did a search on it, and you're right- apparently it's from "Rocky Balboa" (http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Rocky_Balboa_%28film%29).

Either way, the problem wasn't with the speech itself, but with its...

Where I am, the leaves on some trees I pass on my way to work have been yellowing for some time and were already falling by the final week of August. (Granted, those trees are always the first to go-...

Okay, fair point- I'll accept that it has some tradition for agricultural purposes, but I'm sceptical that it was ever a universally-accepted definition for everyday use.

Interestingly, the Irish...

You can see it as "fact" if it makes you happy, but it's still just a choice from one of many man-made definitions, no more, no less.

How "Summer" is like Santa's grotto (honest...)

As Doop commented, the Met Office uses the "first of the month" definitions. I think you should rush off and tell *them* that they're wrong! ;-)

Obviously, the equinoxes themselves- and the longest...

That depends which definition you use (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Summer). I know that some count it as beginning on the 21st of June- something I always found weird, even as a kid. IMHO any...

To be honest, you're probably right that I was overthinking it.

The simple answer is probably that for the relatively low number of games at such low prices, it's not worth going out of their way or...

It doesn't bother me at all. I was just curious as to the economics and reasons for it from CeX's point of view.

*You* tell me. You were the one who quoted this alleged 1p profit figure. Does this come before or after the wages? (*) If the latter, I'd say "no, it's not going to cover the overheads".

Maybe they can "afford" to sell some at less than the price it costs to bin them, but they're not a charity, so why would they bother? (*)
