    Probably. Doesn't really matter what the correct answer is, or at least not to me.

    How do I use microsoft word or OpenOffice to cover an entire page with text, running across it at a 45 degree angle.

    Basically I want to print cardback, and have it repeat "Game Name Game Name Game Name across the whole page, but at an angle.
    fuck you guys.

    In Word 2003 (dunno if Word 2007 still has it), you can go to the Insert Menu -> Picture -> WordArt and do that. Right easily, as I recall.

    ; is the concatenation operator (in a PRINT statement).

    , is the tabulation operator. It aligns the succeeding argument to the next tab stop.

    Don't underestimate the power of Orangina worldwide.

    As far as the most popular snack goes, I'll guess that worldwide it's probably dried shrimp.

    Coca-Cola and I'm pretty sure it's not even close.

    In the US:

    Kids - Fruit
    Adults - Gum (Chocolate is #2 since gum isn't really a "food")
