Fun on the Web March 20 '09 Game

The Art of Theft is the latest game from Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw. It's a mission-based stealth platform, with an emphasis on gameplay over story. Your goal is to infiltrate buildings in Chapow City, steal loot, achieve objectives and get out again with the subtlety of a flickering shadow in a ninja outfit.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day

St Patrick's Day Games
I like Shamrock Shatter the best

St Patrick's Day Facts,2933,509487,00.html

To mark St Patrick's Day, Faith Central has compiled 10 celebratory tidbits, some myth, some fact, on the Patron Saint of the Irish.

1. The potato crop was traditionally planted in Ireland after March 17

2. Blue not green is the color originally associated with St Patrick. “St Patrick’s Blue” is used on Ireland's Presidential Standard or flag, while the Irish Guards sport a plume of St Patrick’s blue in their bearskins. The emphasis on green is thought to be linked to “wearing the Green”, a symbol from the 18th century on, of sympathy with Irish independence.

3. St Patrick is patron of fishermen in the Loire, where a legend associates him with a blackthorn bush. The saint is said to have slept beneath it, and when he awoke the next day, Christmas, the bush flowered, and was said to have continued to do so every Christmas until its destruction during the First World War.

4. A regiment of the Mexican army in the 1846 -8 War between Mexico and America was named after St Patrick. Members of the Batellón de San Patricio included Afro-Americans freshly liberated from the slave plantations of the South, and the soldiers were granted Mexican citizenship afterwards.

5. The first St Patrick’s Day parade took place in 1737 in Boston, followed in 1762 by New York. George Washington allowed his soldiers a holiday on March 17, 1780 as “an act of solidarity with the Irish in their fight for independence.”

6. Until the 1970’s, all pubs were shut in Ireland on St Patrick’s Day, and the sole venue selling drink the annual dog show. Lenten fasting – and the obligation to abstain from meat – were lifted on the day, which most families would begin with Mass.

7. St Patrick’s Day is a public holiday in Ireland and also in Monserrat "the Emerald Isle of the Carribean,” so called because it was settled in 1633 by Irish migrants from St Kitts.

8. According to legend, on the day of Judgement, while Christ judges all other nations, St Patrick will be the judge of the Irish.

9. Since 1962, tons of green dye are tipped on St Patrick’s Day into the Chicago river, although the quantity has reduced, for environmental reasons, from 100 to 40.

10. Should you wish to carry on celebrating St Patrick after March 17, in the United States, you might visit the four Shamrocks in the USA including Mount Gay-Shamrock, W.Va or the nine cities named Dublin, including Dublin, Ohio (the largest Dublin in the U.S.) and Dublin, Georgia.

Fun on the Web March 15 '09 Funny Blog

Funniest Post that I've seen in a blog this week goes to:

never say never

Never bake your spouse a birthday cake before you have your first cup of coffee.

Never decide that baking a cake would be a fun project to do with your child on a rainy day when you have back-to-back conference calls.

Never give your child a bowl of frosting and expect any of that frosting to actually make it on to the cake.

Never ever give your child a jar of sprinkles without having the dustbuster at the ready.

Never totally lose your cool when you step in a glob of sprinkle covered frosting.

Never tell your child that they can light the candles just to get them to stop crying after you lost it when stepping in a glob of sprinkle covered frosting.

Never pull the candles out of the hand of your child and tell them they are "doing it all wrong" when it's just a damn candle on a damn birthday cake that you shouldn't have made but just picked one up from the store and what it exactly were you thinking, lady, when you thought it was a f-cking fantastic idea to make a cake between back-to-back conference calls on a rainy day with a kid who has way too much energy and is now on a major sugar high from eating a bowl of frosting.

Never think it's never too early for a drink. Or a lobotomy.

Oh and Happy Birthday, honey. When are you coming home?
