…You should grow a giant beard?


If you need a good reason to grow a giant beard this winter, Matthew Inman of Mingle2 has put together a list of 10 of them, and they include fantastic reasons like “It instantly turns any man into a badass (It’s like having machine guns on your face)”, “Every beautiful woman you meet will want to touch, stroke, and possibly frolic in your amazing beard”, and “you can hide things in it, such as weapons, tools, and snacks.”

…Food brands aren’t always as they appear?

Organic FoodsThey might try to hide behind healthy and family farm sounding names, but many/most of the organic foods that you buy are actually produced by some of the nation’s largest food processors.

…Crates are everywhere?

CratesSince the early ‘80s, game designers have faced one question: Where can I hide health and ammo?

The answer was, of course, the crate! (And the crate’s circular cousin, the barrel.)

Unfortunately, this crate method of hiding supplies soon became the norm, and even great games began to suffer from excessive creating.

To determine which games have the best Start to Crate (StC) number (higher is better), Old Man Murray played through 26 games to see how long it takes to find a crate in each. (The shortest amount of time it takes a player to reach the first crate represents the point where the developers ran out of ideas.)

While one game managed to make it one hundred and twenty seconds without showing a crate, most fell in the five seconds or less category, and many even showed crates from the very beginning.

Thankfully, it’s not a crate emergency, though it is interesting to see just how widespread this problem is.

Can’t they just hide the ammo under a potted plant or something?
