Flash Friday: Gamerswithjobs
calls Nekogames' OUKA
a "very minimalist experience, offering the simplest rules possible in a video game...(i)nstead of a long sentence or paragraph explaining things, or even a tutorial video, when you click the “Hint” button the game simply lays part of the level’s inner workings bare. It’s a testament to the simplicity of the game that this works so well."
Just click the symbol, that's all. [more inside]

Haven't been addicted to a flash game in a while? Take on Swords and Potions
, where you tackle the under-appreciated other side of the RPG universe: being a shopkeeper! There's a lot to this game, so here's the wiki
if you need help, and don't worry about your productivity- turns take time to regenerate so you can't get stuck playing all day.

Flash Friday: remember Miami Shark?
That awesome game where you played a shark and the shark totally destroyed everything in its path? The makers of that fine game have now given us Sydney Shark
, and marsupials, parachutists, aliens, and a windsurfer looking suspiciously like John Kerry will never be the same again.

I've always thought you were safe in a house from lightning storms as long as you were off the land-line or computer. A Mississippi man's Gibson Les Paul got positively roasted while sitting in his home, in its case, leaning against a wall. That's a powerful bolt
. Lots of gory photos here
and in the auction linked above including a nice shot of some of the parts
that exploded off of the guitar, some shooting like bullets
through the case.
Awesome! And it still held quite a bit of its value.
