Real Catholic Men Can Play Games

The 40 Year Old Virgin

A couple weeks back I read something by a priest arguing that Real Catholic Men should not play videogames. The article was pointless and ill-informed, and proved mostly that the author had not one single solitary clue about his subject matter and only the vaguest notion about “videogames” and the people who play them.

Cumberbatch As Alan Turing

Here’s the first trailer for The Imitation Game, about building the machine that breaks the German Enigma cipher. It looks like it’s focused on Turing the Quirky Genius, not Turing the Gay Martyr, which is a good thing. He should be remembered for his important work, not his tragic end.

"App o' the Mornin'? If ya makin' funna the way I talk, I'll boost ya feckin' nose."

Back in ye olden days, I had a semi-popular gaming blog with daily feature called the App o’ the Mornin’. It was called that because I 1) reviewed an app and 2) posted it in the morning. Since it was a gaming blog, I stuck to games, but I’ve decided to bring the feature over [Read More...]

Click to enlarge

This popped up in my Facebook feed today: You can enlarge it to see the punchline, but it’s this: Healthcare.gov supposedly requires 500,000,000 lines of code. I’m going to call BS on that. The idea is that the site was programmed with such an absurd degree of incompetence that it bloated to an unprecedented size. [Read More...]
