Jackson has been broken... and fixed again

Jackson had a broken leg on Friday night. I'm still not sure how it happened or who did it to him but I'm certainly not done looking into it. He was running about the house (tearing stuff up as usual) around 6:30 and then a few hours later is locked up in my room with a shattered back leg. He had surgery the following morning to place a pin in his broken leg. Upon going through surgery I had the vet check for additional bruising and such that would show how the leg was broken. The vet did find bruising around his butt and knee areas that shows he was obviously hit in that area to cause the break and didn't get himself stuck in something and break it while he tried to get out. In my room nothing was laid across his body when he was found by Jessica at 9:00 to suggest he ran into something that fell on him and broke his leg by his own actions. I can say that whenever I find out what happened that Friday and find out did this to my dog I will respond legally and to the fullest extent of the law. I have talked about taking legal actions to those I know in the past who have stolen from me (a considerable amount actually) and I eventually calmed down and did nothing about it; however I'm not going to stand idly by this time while someone that I know abuses my dog. It may have just been an honest case of Jackson running underneath someone's foot and being stepped on but even so, no one is talking which is making the entire situation all the more evil.

PS3.. probably not for me

Originally I had planned to camp out for a day and a half to buy the PS3 as soon as it launches 11/17 and sell it to make some big easy money. But as of right now (midnight of 11/15) every store within a 50 mile radius already has 10-20+ people waiting outside their doors. Of all those stores Best Buy is the only one I know of that is even receiving more than 10 total units. So much for making an easy $800+ dollars. As of now the average price of a PS3 on eBay seems to be about $1,500 with bundles going for as much as $2,300+. If people are already waiting to buy one 30 hours before launch then I can only imagine what the price of a PS3 is going to be around Christmas. I'll even bet that the average price of the system alone will reach as high as $2,500 maybe even $3,000 come Christmas time. I don't think there will be another big shipment of PS3s until spring, April'ish per Xbox 360's precedent. If only I was a little quicker to hurry up and wait in line I'd be rich too. I may be waking incredibly early to try and snag a system somewhere around town but only time will tell.

-Update- The average price is already climbing to $3,000 and ps3's aren't even available yet. I guess my prediction was a lil low. Don't be surprised if you see game consoles reach upwards of $5-7,000... maybe even $10,000 at Christmas time.
