Show and Tell: How to win at Flappy Bird

You can’t follow social media in the last few days without coming across something Flappy Bird related. It is a very simple game, but one that can quickly lead to frustration. I recently installed the game and spent way longer playing “just one more time” then I should have. My high score is still pretty pathetic, but thankfully the people at Dumb Stupid Videos have an answer. Below is how to win at Flappy Bird.

Show and Tell: Mean Tweets

Twitter is a snarky place. I can appreciate honest and constructive criticism, but so many tweets quickly turn hate and vitriol. A black president, Coke running a commercial where an American song is sung in foreign languages, and even actors being cast as beloved superheroes have all lead to tweets that make me sad for the human race.

I believed these tweets to be pointless, but not everything is without purpose. Enter Jimmy Kimmel and his show’s “Mean Tweets” segment. Below is the latest (and, IMHO, the greatest) iteration of actors turning mean tweets into comedy gold.

Show and Tell: An Abandoned Mill in Minneapolis, Minnesota

Reddit is a great source of just about anything that might interest you. It is also a great resource for things you didn’t know interested you.

Abandoned Porn is a series of pictures of abandoned buildings. The pictures are a strange balance of beautiful and creepy. Its amazing what happens to a place after being ignored for so long. In certain photos, I’m curious about why a place was ever left in the state it was.

Anyways, below is a photo Reddit linked me to.

Show and Tell: Hey, careful man, there’s a beverage here!

The Big Lebowski is the greatest movie ever made, but well, you know, that’s just, like, my opinion, man. One aspect of Veronica Mars that I loved was all the references to this great Coen movie. The world of the Dude has expanded outside of film and into everyday life. I’ve been given books (and given books) about living life as the Dude. I’ve overheard Lewboski references in day-to-day conversations. Central Waters Brewing Co. named their three beer tanks, Walter, Donnie, and The Dude.

Now I can add ice skating to the list of Lebowski mash-ups. Below is a video of Tara Lipinski skating to “I Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)” while carrying a white russian.

How soon until “The Big Lebowski On Ice?” On second thought, I’m out of my element.

Show and Tell: Weeping Angels FTW

As many nerds, I’m a fan of Doctor Who’s Weeping Angels. Villains that can only move when nobody is looking is an eerie concept. You are safe when looking directly at these monsters, but how do you truly get away?

I remember watching the episode, “Blink”, while on the edge of my seat trying to figure how the characters were going to save the day. Little did I know that I was actually apart of the episode.

Wil Wheaton shared this reblog on his Tumblr and for that I thank him. Check out the link for the full story.
