Who says all video game players are sunlight-fearing, couch potato, no-life-having nerds?

Some of them are sunlight-loving, no-life-having nerds with way too much time on their hands.

Marvin gets a laser canon in his face

I read this and I can't help but imagine it saying "Need Input".

Bad, yet classic 80's movies aside, that may be one of the coolest things I've ever seen.

Every now and then, you come across an idea so revolutionary that it is greeted with Schopenhauer's now-classic formulation (I am paraphrasing here): "it won't work, it is trivial, and besides we already do it that way". I believe we may be witnessing a (kill me now) paradigm shift in text input for small personal electronic devices that will revolutionise the industry by freeing devices that operate on text input from the size constraints that keep them at a certain minimum form factor. The system is called Dasher and it comes from a research group at the University of Cambridge. Watch the Google lecture series video on it, download the beta software and then play with it. Oh and, yes, I did write this blog entry using it :)

No, it's not (thank Zarquon) some kind of fetish porn - but other than that, the site Hot Chicks with Douchebags delivers exactly what the domain name promises. More douchebags here, here, here, and, oh, say, here. Hot chicks can be found ... wait, you need help finding pix of hot chix? Sorry, you fail at the Internets.
