comment Do Burrowed Units Block Building Construction?
This is extremely common in high level zerg games. The Zerg player will normally get burrow for some other unit, then send zerglings to every expansion and burrow them. This gives to benefits 1) it alerts you when your opponent tries to expand. 2) it stops the expansion and (against terran) requires a scan + moving a unit to attack the 'ling. 25 minerals for a delayed expansion + 1 wasted scan seems like a good trade to me!

comment Things in Mr Lee's apartment
And yes, this part took me forever to find, I eventually had to back to to a save game and do computer->phone->bat->clock. I think sometimes it doesn't even highlight the bat or the clock until you go through the other two first.

comment In StarCraft, what is an A-Move?
I've never heard of a patrol move being "better"....I'm mid-silver, and have probably killed 2 units ever by a mis-click of a-move. And I think all of those were in the single player game.

comment How do pro Starcraft 2 tournament organisers choose maps?
We should also note that each player is normally given two "down votes". That is, the pool is around 7 maps, and each player is allowed to reject two. This leaves 3 maps which are then picked by the judges. Some players (Idra, we're looking at you), feel that certain maps are insanely anti-zerg, this "down vote" ability allows them to remove some maps they consider unfair.
