make your own board game
After playing a cooperative firefighting board game called Flash Point, I came up with the idea of one called House Work. You must clean up the childrens’ toys and take care of the other chores before the house is enveloped in utter chaos. It’s almost impossible to win because as you’re cleaning up toys in one room, the 1-year-old is scattering toys in two other rooms…somehow simultaneously. Look out! It’s an outbreak of laundry coming from the kid who’s decided to throw clean clothes directly into the laundry basket. Just like Pandemic, you almost never win.
Grampa Charlie…tsk tsk

USB Genesis activation controls?
I was recently watching Wraith of Khan on Netflix. Someone needs to build a USB version of the metal cylinder controls that Khan used to activate the Genesis device. It’d just be hilarious to have to twist those knobs in in all kind of computing situations. Sending a scathing email? Before sending it, Gmail would detect the words of anger and make you twist the knobs from largest to smallest while saying, “to the last, I will grapple with thee.”
There's no basement at the Alamo. They don't tell you that kinda thing in school.
When I googled “Can you say tortilla?”, I thought I’d find amusing conversations about Pee Wee’s Big Adventure. Sadly, it was actually people discussing how to pronounce “tortilla”.
I propose super-daylight savings time! So, at the worst part of winter, dawn is at 9 AM. Sunset at 7 PM (instead of 5 PM). What do you think, sirs? 🙂
I must have learned to dance from Ian Curtis
