Harvard Sucks

Yale 1: Harvard 0One of the better pranks I’ve heard about let alone seen video of.

Visit HarvardSucks.org where Yale students help Harvard express their true feelings about themselves.

Score of game: Harvard 35, Yale 3. Yet everyone goes home a winner.

Right to Party and Vote

Clinton did pot, Bush was a skier, what's Kerry's drug of choice?Less than a week until the election ends and the post election season starts. To bide the time, I found a web site that counts the electoral votes based on state to state polls.

Current Electoral Vote Predictor 2004

Kerry and Bush are pretty much tied, with a few states swinging in the wind. New York isn’t up for grabs, but I’m going to vote anyway.

Find your polling place at an aptly named site MyPolling Place.com

Go vote, grab some popcorn to watch the returns and then realize how similar these two candidates really are.

Connect Four

Queen to Rook 4, what?...this isn't checkersThis was a great childhood game because it was competitive, skill based and quicker than monopoly.

It’s interesting to know that the game has been solved, meaning that computers have determined the first player to move can win every time if they play perfectly.

“There are some people who can play Connect Four perfectly. Wikipedia link for basic strategy. About Connect Four

When the first player goes in the middle column, the first player will always win if the first player is perfect, but the columns next to the middle column will result in a draw, and the other columns result in a second player win.”

Play Connect Four

I think the AI on this one is better, so when you dominate the first, try this Connect Four game.

USS Cole

USS Cole Seal

The USS Cole was attacked by terrorists while at portin Yemen back in 2000. Far from recent news, but here’s how we brought her back for repairs. The Cole is a fairly big guided missile destroyer. The Marlin is a huge ship and it partly submerged itself, had the Cole tugged over it, and ascended with the Cole now on its deck.

The Cole returned to the Fleet in 2002.

Random Facts for Fun

oink oink, it's shaped like a corkscrewIf you yelled for 8 years, 7 months and 6 days you would have produced enough sound energy to heat one cup of coffee.
(Hardly seems worth it.)

If you farted consistently for 6 years and 9 months, enough gas is produced to create the energy of an atomic bomb.
(Now that’s more like it!)

The human heart creates enough pressure when it pumps out
to the body to squirt blood 30 feet.

Punch A Mole

No sir, I wasn't playing games, just practicing my data entry...I was never good at the punch a mole game. My excuse was that I was six and the wacking stick was too heavy. That same year I found out that you could pull out all the tickets from the skee-ball machine if you pull them slowly with constant pressure. That is really neither here nor there and I don’t remember any of the cool prizes I won, so there’s your brief glipse of me as a 6 year old.

In other news, this game is fun and will prepare you for your next career in data entry which starts shortly after your boss sees you playing this.

Shut Up

... the sudden handyness of a 500-page hard cover book

One of my buddies forwarded me the link to a quick flash file that made me laugh a little. If you need a quick laugh, try and think back to the days in the computer lairs of your college… and then open the link.

Poster’s note: I can’t help feel this is rigged, but I wouldn’t put it past myself to do a similar thing.

Redrum…

come play with us...

For those of you who have seen The Shining, this will be pretty funny. If you haven’t seen it this will probably be confusing… just letting you know.

This website has now made two 30-second flash movies where they reinact the memorable scenes of classic movies. So far i’ve seen The Shining and The Excorcist… reinacted by bunnies.

Enjoy.
