    I'm surprised nobody has made this thread yet.

    Its Gabe's 50th birthday today, so let's all wish him well for his big 5-0.

    Happy Birthday Mr.Newell!

    If it wasn't for Gabe, we wouldn't have had HL, and then HL2 and Steam and then we would have not been such an awesome community... :O

    50 is the new 40. So he has another 10 years to make HL3.

    To us elites he's Gabe! I think Gaben is what the plebs of reddit, 4chan etc call him.

    I think this was taken the same time they gave him the card - [​IMG]

    Maybe he told them about HL3 and now he's trying to keep it hush hush :p

    That money looks so small in his... giant hands.

    They look like big, good, strong hands. Don't they?

    I'm sure this is a reference to something, but without knowing it, it sounds so ****ing creepy.

    Everything I've read says he had to pay them 2.50$ for a key to unlock the crate.

    You refer to people based on their official email rather than their name?

    Gabe kinda looks terrible for his age. easily a decade older. the ill fitting shirt and cheap wal-mart jeans arent helping either. he should lose the santa beard
