, a space-based action adventure game, you pilot a starship defending the galaxy from an encroaching enemy invasion with an increasingly powerful array of armaments and technologies. It's a hell of a lot of fun, so play and enjoy! [via mefi projects]

It's a bit difficult to give context to Fathom
without ruining the fun of the game, but I daresay it's worth your time. A bit more here
, and the comments there seem to offer a few useful hints if you're getting too frustrated.

You can't buy a CycleKart
and, even if you could, the racers wouldn't let you participate. You have to build your CycleKart
. It's one of the many reasons this is a very cool hobby.

Snow day (in DC) flash fun: Closure.
is a stark, imaginative, beautiful and a creepy platformer where the only light is the one you carry in your hands...

Super Useless Super Powers.
A cute website with dinky cartoons and fun descriptions of those super powers which, if you were to be blessed with one, would be pretty much damn-near useless.

Jaane Tu... Ya Jaane Naa
(You don't know, and neither do I) = A guy who's in love with a girl falls in love with someone who he thinks is right for him, but he realizes his mistake, only after the girl has decided to marry her perfect match [or so she thinks]. Taree Zameen Par
(Stars On The Ground) = A boy who has difficulty with school work gets put into a Hostel for boys where he discovers a teacher who understands him and is willing to fight for him. And Jab We Met
(When we met) = A story about a guy and a girl, who meet on a train and get hitched to each other; the guy finds himself by the end of their travel but has to leave the girl because she's run away from home to marry a guy, only to find out that he doesn't want to marry her... three Hindi movies which I would suggest that everyone watch!

There's been a lot of LHC news lately but a less-publicized series of Compact Muon Solenoid
proton collision tests is scheduled for today, and CERN has been kind enough to set up a live streaming webcam
to watch the CMS in action. (There's also a view of the parking lot but I think that's more so underground-bunkered LHC staff can see the weather.) It's fairly dull viewing but if you're interested in the science of it all, it's great nerdy fun. Maybe you'll even see a black hole or two. ;)

Happy Birthday, MeFi, here's a fun free* game! Ikariam
is sort of like a Skyrates version of Civ, with the real-time MMO combat and diplomacy that might bring to mind. Also, it's set in Olympian Greece, but only kind-of. Enjoy!
*Batteries not included. Some registration required. Suggested age: 8-and-up. Some implied violence and consumption of alcohol (wine). Expansion materials may be purchased but are not necessary to enjoy the game and are, by the judgment of this MFGA (MetaFilter Gaming Authority) member: "some kind of bullshit."

, take a ride
at some of the Islamic Art
of the past. Or, you could call it Art
of the Islamic World
if you're so inclined. If not, then how about taking into account some of the major milestones
throughout the centuries
, from past
(more examples here
), including the art
. Not to mention the Arab
world's contribution to music
, both old
, and here
, with a wonderful
comment from nickyskye
