Out of the Blue

Had a fine old time in our craft fair outing: And we've gotten to the point where the salsa guy recognizes us. He also had a new variety that's pretty awesome: A ghost pepper salsa, which is very tasty, but not as hot as you'd imagine from the name, and not nearly as spicy as the "stupid hot" variety he sells (and yes, I got my sticker).

Spicy Links: Thanks Ant and Acleacius.
Play: Demon Shift.
Amoebas - Clockwork Monster.
Links: NES light gun gets a laser upgrade, fulfils countless childhood dreams. Thanks HARDOCP.
Stories: Emmys 2012: 'Homeland' Wins Outstanding Drama Series.
Science: Reading and writing quantum bits on a single electron spin.
New breast cancer clues found in gene analysis.
Images: 3D printed Möbius strip of the 1st level of Mario. End to beginning to end to beginning.
Media: Not Your Parents' Book Club.
Kitten meets glass door.
Russian Army Cadets Gaga Over Gaga.
The Funnies: xkcd- Think Logically.

The game was much more than just that one call though. There were bad calls on both sides. Just a pretty glaring one at the end.....

Oh yeah, exactly. There were terrible calls going both ways throughout the game. It almost makes each play have a randomness to it that has nothing to do with the players anymore. You just wait for that flag that should or shouldn't be thrown and are happy for any stretch of the game that isn't screwed up.

Of course the normal refs screw up all the time too, after all it's an almost impossible job, but their level of competence is so, so much better than these guys.
