  • Bubbles!

    It’s as simple as bubbles! Click on them for a gratifying popping noise.

  • Daft Hands

    Holy Crap! UPDATE: Oh shit! A parody! Again, hilarious UPDATE 2: Oh shit! More! I’ll never understand the relationship with some people and their pets.

  • I want 10

    When I saw Jason (my high-ranked Telus salesman/karaoke friend) in Toronto this past weekend, he had taken a screenshot of an iPhone display and made it the background of his regular phone. I dropped to my knees involuntarily, fooled temporarily and praising him as a god. In related news,

  • Games and Education

    The link below is to “Statetris”, a game where you play tetris with the States of America. After playing it for about 3 minutes, I think I’ve learned more about the geography of the states than in my previous 22 years of life. Awesome! http://www.mapmsg.com/games/statetris/usa/

  • Quagmire

They are nice and imaginative, but I find myself getting frustrated with the details. Like how the book seems like a movie set, and not a world. A movie […]

  • Self-Referential Multiple Choice

    I’m currently writing a multiple choice placement test for engineering calculus students. I wrote a draft, and sent it in to the professor I’m working for, where he found an error in this question. Which statement is correct about the f(x) and its inverse, g(x)? 1. g(x) is the reciprocal of f(x)2. An output so […]

  • What I'm reading right now

    In light of yesterday’s post on the newest book I’ve got, I’m going to reveal what Dustin’s reading on a regular basis. I’m actually a ways off from breaking into Second Person – I have several books to go through before that. Usually, for books, I have one fiction and one non-fiction going at the […]

    Holy crap! It’s Second Person: Role-Playing and Story in Games and Playable Media
