Naughty Super Bowl Sparks Beefs To FCC [del.icio.us]

Oh. My. Science. It never ceases to amaze me (or entertain me) that people feel the need to complain about the stupidest things. Even when they have legitimate complains, they are often lodged in a poorly conceived manner (and often with a lot of unnecessary swearing). Here are some of the actual complaints that the FCC received after this year’s Super Bowl.

Fat cat HOT + FUNNY funny fun kitty kitty [del.icio.us]

This video had me laughing out loud (at work, no less), although a few things about it left me scratching my head. For example, the title of the video (yes, Fat cat HOT + FUNNY funny fun kitty kitty is the actual title someone gave it on YouTube). Also, the video is from japan-fun.com, but the language in the video is clearly not Japanese. It looks a little like Urdu or some other Indian language (it also sounds like it’s from that area of the world).

Desktop Tower Defense [del.icio.us]

I could play this all day long. It’s a pretty neat idea for a Flash game.

Paper Pilot: The Battle of the Air [del.icio.us]

If only I could make a paper airplane that flies almost 50 metres in real life!

The Stupid Test [del.icio.us]

According to this test, I’m only 1% stupid. I just wish the stupid test would tell me which question I answered incorrectly. A lot of these were way too easy. So, how stupid are you?

  1. I’m 28% stupid. Ouch.

  2. I’m 17% stupid. I think it was some of those math questions that got me.

    Fat Cat: Sounds like Thai, right?

    Tower Defense: Addicting! Easy mode is … easy. Normal mode … I keep getting to the final boss but then DIE!

    Stupid Test: I’m 6% stupid, but considering the ambiguous nature of many of the questions…

  4. I agree, a bunch of those questions were fairly ambiguous. Like I said before, I wish it would tell you which answers you got wrong (or should that be, “wrong”?).

    I don’t know how I forgot to mention it the first time, but re: Tower Defense, there are TONS of these games right now. The new Flash Circle TD is what reminded me of it (also, here’s a link to Flash Element TD, the older Tower Defence, and the downloadable (non-free) Master of Defense).

    There are all based on the Warcraft III Tower Defense bonus level that inspired a wave of similar mods, and there are even more of them than I’m mentioning (I even just found an NDS version!)

    Addictelicious!

    (Do you check old posts? Let’s find out. ^_^)

    Have you played Desktop Tower Defense recently? It has been updated with more goodness.

  7. My blog e-mails me whenever people comment, so I don’t need to go back and check old posts. -)

    I heard that Tower Defense was updated, but haven’t had a chance to play it. A bunch of people at work are obsessed with it (thanks to my blog), so I’ll have to let them know.
