After much fanfare and arm waving and hoo ha, we settled on the definition of an all in after I was pushed to the edge of a murderous rampage. It was all downhill from there.
Given that Kevin attempted several times in a row to give all his chips away after the cut off, he accidentally won each hand and went on to win. I'm thinking I should almost just withhold payment from that kind of blind luck and shenanigans.
In any case, here are the final results (name-# all ins-moneys spent-moneys won):
10. Brad - 4 all ins - 9$
9. Duncan - 2 all ins - 5$
8. Joel - 5 all ins - 11$
7. Heather - 2 all ins - 7$
6. Alex - 5 all ins - 17$
5. Blair - 4 all ins - 13$
4. Adam - 5 all ins - 9$
3. Coulman - 4 all ins - 15$ - won 10$
2. Joelle - 5 all ins - 9$ - won 30$
1. Kevin D - 8 all ins - 15$ - won 70$
By doing a little visual integration, you will notice the person with the most all-ins pre-cutoff won the game. He was also near the top for spending the most money. This seems to be a good incentive/stimulus to get money flowing in our poker games. Now if only I could count re-buys correctly...

Why are comedians organizing into crews for movies nowadays. You've got your Judd Apatow crew and your Sandler crew and your Stiller/Wilson/Vaughn crew and your Broken Lizard crew and etc. It's like comedy orgies. Not that I'm against that. I would be in the Apatow crew myself though. I guess that's probably obvious, they're on top of the crew world right now, with Superbad and Knocked Up and stuff. Though Strange Wilderness looks awesome. It's even got a mixture of three crews. Can't wait.

Basically, this is a "insert caption here" photo that I clipped out of the star phoenix.
...NO THAT DOESN'T COUNT AS SCRAPBOOKING, DAN!
What the hell good is a hummer if you are stuck in this situation? The snow isn't even half way up the wheels. Don't these things have 4WD?

I was just relating this story to someone recently and had to make sure it wasn't another one of Oleifr's drunken mysteries. It is the story of a MLB pitcher who was sidelined due to playing too much guitar hero.
And while that is amusing, I came across a top 5 list of the wussiest sports injuries, of which the one above is somehow absent.

Wow. This has got to be up there on the TO weird list, next to his "suicide" attempt. I'm starting to think TO was the one that went to Mexico with Tony and not Jessica Simpson. Maybe Jessica is just a ploy to cover up their homo erotic mantasy (copyright 2008, thebestnothing).
After hearing about this event being repeatedly talked about on Virgin Radio UK, I had to look it up. Turns out everything they say about it is true, its monstrously hilarious. I would even go so far as to say it is redunkulous.
It is a guy who was mistakenly put on air for an interview at the BBC. The details can be found on his wikipedia page. He thought he was there for a job interview, but instead he ended up taking the place of another man named Guy who was there to do the live TV interview. The best of it all is his reaction at the start when he figures out what is going on and that there has been some colossal mistake. The short delay before he realizes it is great. And then there is his attempt to go along with it that is hilarious too.
I don't normally like watching uncomfortable situations because it makes me uncomfortable too, but thankfully, all this guy had to survive was 30 seconds and he got away with it.

I'm not sure who it was, but on New Year's Eve, one of the perps at my place tried to get my Sixaxis controller drunk by dousing it in alcohol. Not only was this irresponsible, but it was negligent and criminal. People need to take responsibility for their actions and behave more maturely.... And if I wasn't drunk past the point of remembering what happened that night, someone might be in serious shit.
The result of alcohol and sixaxis is headaches. First I thought it was going to just be a 60$ headache, until I realized that I have way too much education not to pry open the controller and clean it up. The result:
It's funny, because no matter how much you tell yourself to pay attention to the parts and pieces you are prying apart, there's always components that come from nowhere. Google was amazingly un-informative with putting the controller back together piece by piece. I had to scrounge together info from various sources to find out where everything went.
Anyway, The picture below show the amount of sappy goodness present on the edges of the button that caused severe stickiness.
And as for the perp... watch your back.
Here's a homemade video of mine of the Rider's Grey Cup victory making EPSN Monday Night Football Halftime news. You can just tell Berman is a Rider fan. But really, who isn't? (oh wait, Blair drinks Schmidt's Gay, I mean Blue)

What would you do if you were 7 foot 7 and 360 pounds? Hell yeah, play basketball. Kelly George has size 23 shoes and he towers over other players. I don't even think the school he plays for is very high up in the college ladder of important teams. This guy only needs a 2 inch vertical to dunk. INSANE.
for comparison, Yao Ming is 7 foot 6 and 210 pounds. Maybe it's just that the other NBA players are also generally taller, but this guy seems like he's two feet taller than that.
For a little history of the game (which by now is almost enough to write a book), see the following link:
There have been many games I've been excited for in the past. Mortal Kombat II, notably. It was the type of game where you saw commercials on TV and were awed into a frenzy of excitement. We actually would tape them and watch it frame by frame. Duke Forever is one of these types of games for me. I hope it delivers because Duke 3d (and it's closely related cousin, Shadow Warrior) were maybe the most all around fun games I've ever played.
For those who don't know, a trailer was released recently with very little details of the game which can be watched below. The hope is that this is a sign the game could be released this year sometime.
Nothing like reveling in pre-pubescent fantasy land.

I've probably posted this before in the past, but what the hell.
Some of my considerations would be the Plasma Grenade from Halo, the RP-90 from 007, and the shrinker from Duke 3d. And I would take a star over red shells in Mariokart any day.
