…It’s TGI Friday: The Space Game?

The Space Game

The Space Game is The Casual Collective’s follow-up to the uber-popular Desktop Tower Defense, and the goal is to produce energy, mine asteroids for minerals, expand your influence and defend your base. Basically, it’s like EVE, only free and with a lot less options. (Though the menu does look a bit daunting at first.) The game itself is rather clever though, and feels very well thought out, so give it a try and see what you think.

…Obama tastes like fish?

Obama Sushi

If you think Obamania isn’t going to extend into the world of sushi, you’d be wrong, as one very clever sushi chef has managed to create a roll that bears a striking resemblance to the 44th President’s mug.

Unfortunately I can’t vouch for how this would taste or even what fish it’s made of, but who cares when it looks so damn cool?

…Some models are ageless?

Multi-Age Model

With clever make-up, deceptive lighting, and a few well-practiced poses, one 20-year-old model has managed to look 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 and 60 years old in a shoot done for Vogue Paris.

Seems like there’s a Dove ad in here somewhere…

…The Muppets are terrible drivers?

Muppet Speed Camera

In Germany, speed cameras are set up to capture both the license plate of the car in question as well as the drivers face, while blurring the identity of the passengers for privacy purposes, because “The number plate is not enough. We need clear evidence of who is driving the vehicle too.”

Apparently one British driver (whose driver’s seat is conveniently on the opposite side of his German counterparts) has discovered this system, and is taking full advantage of it by placing a stuffed Muppet in the driver’s/passenger’s seat as he flies by the cameras.

So far he’s got the authorities fooled, but as soon as they can figure out which Muppet is going along for the ride, they intend to fully interrogate him until he reveals the identity of the clever co-driver.

…Ruby Tuesday went ka-boom?

Apparently Ruby Tuesday thinks it’s pretty clever.

After promising to blow up one of their restaurants to symbolize their commitment to change, they “accidentally” blew up a neighboring restaurant while broadcasting the whole thing live on the internet.

In addition, they’ve issued an apology letter on their site to the restaurant that they blew up:

Ruby Tuesday Apology Letter

Thankfully, plenty of people happened to be there with camera in hand, and YouTube is now filled with commercial sized snippets of first person viewpoints; all appropriately tagged, described and titled to lend that extra bit of authenticity to the whole thing.

Don’t think you can hide from me though Ruby Tuesday, because I can see right through your shenanigans.
