Petals Around the Rose
This little puzzle took my genius son over an hour to figure out. It took me two seconds. They say the smarter you are the harder it is...shut up.

is an online RPG that's "a simulation of what it is like to be a power player in the movie industry today." Take on the role of studio head, agent, producer, critic, or journalist and make virtual movies
every bit as crappy as the ones that the real Hollywood churns out!

"In the game
, the player plays the role of a character called The Postal Dude. He lives in a town where there are all kinds of people, white, black, skinny, fat, straight and gay. You can play the game in a passive role without killing anyone," Desi said.
"We are not political," he added.

The toughest Chelonia to every grace the media.
Come on. Everyone had to love them at some point, with their pizzas and funny weapons. This
page has some interesting sketch art. This
one includes the complete cast of the cartoon and movies, with links to their career since said roles. This site
, my favorite, has the entire "Coming out of our Shells" tape for download. Remember the classic, Cowabunga?

Hit the Fan!
Here's a great little game that's been floating around my "to post" box for a few days just waiting for Flash Friday here at MeFi. The object is to propel a mound of fecal matter with your ping-pong paddle so that it connects with the rotary air circulation device. Once you get some practice, try springing one off the stapler or landing it in the coffee cup. Even better yet, go for a "Mac attack" and ricochette one off the iMac screen into the blades. They did a fairly good job of creating a sound effects for the moment when the caca hits the old ventilador too - so how can you lose?

Friday Fun (posted early). "Do It Yourself"
virtual building blocks (similar to the virtual Legos
a while back). Addiction Rating: Mid-Range (no worries--it won't eat your life like Bookworm
did). Very simple blocks can make surprisingly beautiful, even complex creations (awfully tough to approximate a Gothic groin vault
with the available shapes, but trying's half the fun). (Signup 'membership' is free.)

Game Neverending. There are at least two kinds of games. One could be called finite, the other infinite. A finite game is played for the purpose of winning, an infinite game for the purpose of continuing the play.
The game is in alpha right now, but it has managed to take over my free time. There is not a clear goal or purpose in the game, other than to keep experiencing and making. I can't figure out what has hooked me in.

A Scranton, PA man is auctioning
250,000 pieces of software mostly games from the 80s and early 90s composed
of around 20,000 unique titles
(2MB Excel Spreadsheet) for $250,000. He says its the worlds biggest collection and many games are rare and in demand
. You will need trucks and warehouse. If anyone can afford to sit on these for a few decades untill the 80s generation gets old and nostalgic it could be the Schoyen
of early computer gameing software.

Save pinball! "It's an American icon," said Stern, ever the salesman. "Pinball is cool because it is retro. It's a Volkswagen bug, a PT Cruiser, khaki pants."

Tired of Fantasy Baseball/Football/Basketball? Then it's time you tried Fantasy Fugitive Recovery
"Fantasy Fugitive Recovery (FFR) is an internet game similar to other sports. You pick a roster and are awarded points based on your players performance. In FFR, the aim of the game is to pick five escaped convicts from the master list and gain points based on if your escapees are captured."
Anyone want to start a league (ehh, prison system?) with me?
