Out of the Blue

Happy Flag Day, as today is the U.S.'s celebration of the adoption of the American Flag. This us celebrated by flying said flag, but since I am a descendant of alleged flag creator Betsy Ross, I am gladly accepting checks and other remuneration from those looking to express more tangible appreciation for the stars and stripes.

Flagged Links: Thanks Ant and Acleacius.
Play: Relic of War.
Cover Orange Players Pack 3.
Links: Looping Game Gifs. Thanks Boing Boing.
The Day the MBTA Saved a Bunny and a Little Girl’s Heart. Thanks Boing Boing..

Looks like Hulu has the full S2E1 of Wilfred up for a special preview if anyone is interested. Don't need H+ either.

It's also at http://bit.ly/i0BDha . Robin Williams does a good job.

Oh you bastard... Hadn't watched it yet.

Well now you have to!

Oh! You said flag day. For a moment I thought America just got a lot more liberal.

The Simpsons said it best when they told the steel workers of America to keep reaching for that rainbow!

Fuck the rainbow I want a MAN! Not a *lisp* man....

Is it bad that while I've been single for almost 4 years, (after being 'married' for 13), that I really want a person with gaming interest? Preferably one not into MMO's (Introduced my Ex to Everquest and he became a hardcore player), but more regular computer/console games?

I would say go for someone a bit older. When I was in my 20s, I would pull all nighters and all weekenders playing Civ II and SMAC and XCom and, of course, Total Annihilation (see that avatar pic?). Now that I'm early 40s, I just don't have the interest/energy. About an hour or two a night is all I can handle. Also, when I was younger I would do more single player and PVP. I still play SP (Hello Skyrim!) but prefer Coop over PVP these days (Esp with my bro and his son), although we do play the occasional game of Worms.

Here's a couple of relevant facts for you, from a Brit. I only recently read this about the Union Flag (the official name for the flag).

1. It's not the official flag of the UK (I.e. the union) - its the flag of the monarchy. It was never made official, merely adopted (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Union_Flag#Status)

2. Because it's not official, there's no official disposal method. Desecrating (e.g. Burning) the UK flag is not legislated against.

I'm 34 and only just finding this out mental. Happy flag day, US! At least you had the sense to make an official one

It's stories like that little girl with the bunny that makes you think we aren't quite so doomed as a species.

We're still doomed though. But at least we'll still have our stuffed rabbits.

"Nobody wants to be nobody in America. Ed is the apotheosis of a prevailing American syndrome. It used to be that someone became famous because they were special. Now people are considered special just for being famous. Fame, itself, is its own virtue.

So you'll accept money because your "great-great-great-great-Grandmother once removed on your father's side" made a flag, but you won't sell a T-shirt or coffee mug...


I suspect he has an entire closet of mugs and small t-shirts that no one bought the first time.
