Which One of You is Doing This?


Interesting statement, and one that I can't say I disagree with. The idea of interacting with dog feces to make a statement is of questionable appeal however. What we need now is a canine capsule delivery system, so the flags come out pre-installed.


Sword, Meet Bullet



As if Samurais weren't bad ass enough, check out this video to see what happens when a katana goes up against a bullet. Don't ever mess with Ninjas.

PC Load Letter?!

Binball Wizard

I'm not usually a flash game player, but you must try out Binball Wizard. This addictive little game is kind of like a hybrid of golf, pinball, and day-to-day office life. The game levels are fully interactive, reacting with every move of the ball as you try to get it into the garbage 'bin' (Must be Brits). The interesting gameplay somehow manages to fit neatly into the office environment. Reccomend for those all-too-frequent boredom attacks at work.


Oh %&@# Pacman!

Theres a lot of websites dedicated to 8 bit gaming about. [...] I felt, however, that there was one thing which (as far as I'm aware) has never been celebrated.... swearing on text adventures.

Profanity Adventures


Just when you thought your life goals would never be complete, this guy goes and helps you out. That's right, he's gone through numerous 80's text adventures, abusing them explicitly along the way. As if this weren't enough he documented the results for games that actually recognize the swears and respond to them.

Bic Art



Ahhh... to be artistic. Proof that great art can be made without expensive tools, this guy draws his art with a simple Bic ball-point pen. Makes me want to pick up a pen and start drawing now. I can only imagine the personal gratifaction that comes from having such a great (and inexpensive) creative outlet.

Bush Singing "Sunday, Bloody Sunday"

Some would say quite an appropriate song as well. Those of you not familiar with the track will still recognize the references to Bush's feats. It's amazing that the library of Bush quotes has grown large enough to allow such a comprehensive and niche 'remix'.

[andy\code] A common typo.

Classcasts

Missed class? Try a podcast: Digital recordings of lectures allow college students with MP3 players to catch lessons or just catch up wherever and whenever they want

Newsday.com: Missed class? Try a podcast

Now this is what my school needs. Not that I miss classes or anything. Its unfortunate that there seems to be the attitude from professors in college that if you miss classes you can automatically fail, regardless of whether you do well on the tests and homework. I believe that if you know the content and do the work, it doesn't matter how many classes you attend. I am after all the one paying to go there. But logic is all too scarce these days. Oh well, back to not doing homework.

Annoyances.org - The Use of Computers in Movies

One of the curses of being a geek is that you can never watch a movie with technology in it without being irritated as hell by the incredibly unrealistic representation of computers. At least that's how I am. Sometimes I have to consciously keep myself from nitpicking a movie too much, but its becoming harder and harder for Hollywood movies. The downward spiral of pop media is a different post altogether though. This article at Annoyances.org sums up nicely many complaints I've had about computers in movies. Check it out.

The hypocrisy of EULAs...

Have you noticed that when installing software the default option selected when viewing the EULA (End User License Agreement) is 'I Disagree', yet when they're asking to install some spyware laden browser 'toolbar' they automatically have the 'Install this software' or 'I Agree' option checked? It's like they believe that you will somehow get you to install their crapware by just slipping it in there deceptively. Annoying as all hell when you think of the intentions behind it. Meh. I just want on a writing spree last night, so I should have something to post of actual substance this weekend.
