Relief for Haiti

Wednesday, January 13th, 2010 | You Call This News? | No Comments

In case you’re looking to make a donation to relief efforts in Haiti, but don’t know where to do so, I’d like to suggest a donation to Doctors Without Borders. In addition to being a wonderful group, they already have a presence in Haiti (though, sadly, at the moment many of their people already in the country are unaccounted for) and their skilled services are badly needed right now.

Also, if you donate through Small Dog Electronics, they will match any donation up to $200.

Too nerdy cool to eat

Yeah, cupcakes are delicious, but I’d have such a hard time eating these games cupcakes. They’re so cool!

See how many of them you can guess. When you think you have your answer for each, mouseover the question mark button to see if you’re right. The number you get will really depend on how old you are and how familiar you are with a number of video games, but there’s something for everyone. They even included pre-video games in the mix.

Hmm. Looking at these has left me hungry, wanting to play some video games, and with the phrase “get the humanoid” stuck in my head.
