    This was a triumph.
    I'm making a note here: HUGE SUCCESS.
    It's hard to overstate my satisfaction.
    Aperture Science
    We do what we must
    because we can.
    For the good of all of us.
    Except the ones who are dead.
    But there's no sense crying over every mistake.
    You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.
    And the Science gets done.
    And you make a neat gun.
    For the people who are still alive.
    I'm not even angry.
    I'm being so sincere right now.
    Even though you broke my heart.
    And killed me.
    And tore me to pieces.
    And threw every piece into a fire.
    As they burned it hurt because I was so happy for you!
    Now these points of data make a beautiful line.
    And we're out of beta.
    We're releasing on time.
    So I'm GLaD. I got burned.
    Think of all the things we learned
    for the people who are still alive.
    Go ahead and leave me.
    I think I prefer to stay inside.
    Maybe you'll find someone else to help you.
    Maybe Black Mesa
    THAT WAS A JOKE.
    HAHA. FAT CHANCE.
    Anyway, this cake is great.
    It's so delicious and moist.
    Look at me still talking
    when there's Science to do.
    When I look out there, it makes me GLaD I'm not you.
    I've experiments to run.
    There is research to be done.
    On the people who are still alive.
    And believe me I am still alive.
    I'm doing Science and I'm still alive.
    I feel FANTASTIC and I'm still alive.
    While you're dying I'll be still alive.
    And when you're dead I will be still alive.
    STILL ALIVE

    1, this episode managed to get released on time, (HOLY CRAP!)

    2, think chell was the only person in a frozen pod that Glados had stuck down there to 'play' with? Looks like she's been thawing people now and again to deal with the boredom through several years.

    1: The research came out of beta testing, and managed to get released in time.

    Amazing song.

    its clearly valve just laughing at themselves because most of their titles like HL2 and EP1 were constantly pushed back and back, being released MUCH later than they had originally confirmed.

    The Beta reference is for Team Fortress 2 Beta. And thanks to it they released on time.

    Awesome song. You can really see the symbolism for Valve in here. Surprisingly catchy melody as well.

    Likely.

    Also, you missed a Still Alive at the end.

    It's
    "blah blah blah Still Alive.
    STILL ALIVE REALLY LOUD FOR SOME REASON
    still alive all quiet and sad and emo"

    It may be a reference to how Portal was released on time, but Half-Life 2 was horribly delayed.

    It's a pattern, really. In 2009, a person's first post was the revival of this thread, and now, in 2010, the same thread has been revived by a similar person's first post. I think I'll develop a study on this.

    Great song! I thought the Black Mesa joke was especially funny, since this game is a mod for Half Life 2.. :)
