Happy Geek Pride Day!

And... Happy Towel Day!  And... Happy Glorious May 25th!... And... Happy All of the Other Geeky Holidays too!

I hope everyone is enjoying the fabulous long weekend... But just in case anyone is bored, here are some more reasons why May 25th is the best day (yes, I'm going to post this info every year.  Don't judge me :p)...

This Day in History:
1787 - The Constitutional Convention was convened in Philadelphia.
1878 - Song-and-dance man Bill "Bojangles" Robinson was born in Richmond, Va.
1895 - Playwright Oscar Wilde was convicted of a morals charge in London and sentenced to prison.
1925 - John T. Scopes was indicted in Tennessee for teaching Darwin's theory of evolution.
1926 - Miles Davis, the American trumpeter who had a strong influence on jazz music, was born.
1935 - Baseball Hall of Famer Babe Ruth hit the 714th and final home run of his career.
1945 - Arthur C. Clarke begins privately circulating copies of a paper that proposes using space satellites for global communications.
1946 - Transjordan became a kingdom as it proclaimed its new monarch, King Abdullah Ibn Ul-Hussein.
1951 - Baseball Hall of Famer Willie Mays made his major league debut with the New York Giants.
1968 - The Gateway Arch in St. Louis was dedicated.
1977 - Memorial Day weekend opens with an intergalactic bang as the first of George Lucas' blockbuster Star Wars movies hits American theaters.
1981 - Daredevil Dan Goodwin, wearing a Spiderman costume, scaled the outside of Chicago's Sears Tower in 7 1/2 hours.
1986 - An estimated 7 million people participated in "Hands Across America," forming a line across the country to raise money for the nation's hungry and homeless.
1992 - Jay Leno debuted as host of NBC's "Tonight Show," succeeding Johnny Carson.
1996 - Bradley Nowell (Sublime) was found dead in his San Francisco motel room of a drug overdose at the age of 26. 
2006 - Former Enron Corp. chiefs Kenneth Lay and Jeffrey Skilling were convicted in Houston of conspiracy and fraud for the company's downfall. (Skilling faces resentencing after his original 24-year sentence was overturned; Lay died before he could be sentenced.)

I really need to stop window shopping on the internet, but since I can't... These shirts are the bees knees!   That is all.

Battle Ginger! (be afraid :p)

I've not just been working hard in my absence. I also recently got in some major playtime and went to Vegas for a few days with my sweety (woot!).

It was a much needed break from the chaos and I couldn't help but come share this (though I did wait for ginger Thursday<3). It was taken at Battlefield Vegas, which I highly suggest! It's frakin awesome! They have sooo many guns to choose from and they even pick you up in a Humvee. Though, I cant lie.... I was shaking like crazy when it was my turn to shoot. It's definitely a bit intimidating the first time. Which might explain the interesting nervous smile I am donning there. Anyway, it was a blast to spend a day "shooting things" and not just be talking about a game.

Dear Parents:  It's Time to Start Checking the Things You Give Your Kids

Well, it's been time for that for a while... I'm actually really surprised that a parent would give out any kind of tech these days without at least trying it out first.  Even if you didn't think of this kind of thing happening, you would at least think they'd be checking everything to make sure it works and avoid Christmas morning disappointment.  IDK... but let's just go ahead and make this a lesson learned

Perhaps Wal-Mart shouldn't have resold a returned item as new, but things happen.  Don't assume all is well unless you check it for yourself.  No retail store is that invested in keeping your child's innocence.

8-Bit Christmas.  Woot!

IDK why I like this so much, but it has gotten me far too excited.   I guess I got my second wind.  Bring on the Christmas!  ...or more of it...

BTW, this guy is awesome!  He also has videos for Nintendo, Disney, Portal, Halo, Game of Thrones, and Doctor Who (to name a few).  Looks like I will be going through his stuff for a while.

Merry Christmas G+!

I wanted to take a quick moment before I head out for the evening to wish my g+ family a Super Merry Christmas and Extremely Happy Holidays.  I hope everyone got what/who they wished for.  :D

Also, everyone should get a dragon for Christmas.  Can we make this a thing?

Because all Gingers are Ninjas...

Since I haven't posted in quite a few Ginger Thursdays, I figured I would need something awesome to make up for it... Then +Ross Life sent me this... Score!  Of course, this is a few months old so some may have seen it.  Oh well.  It's new to me!

Oh, and the moral of the story:  Your army is useless.  We will be victorious!   :p

Aging Superhero

I LOVE this idea (and I'm in the mood for art tonight).  Definitely check out the link to see the rest.  There is some really cool stuff.  Especially the very first one!

OK, I declare this BEST THING OF THE DAY today.

Super heroes may get old, but they keep heroing.  Someone (NOT ME) should write this story.  Someone like +Rick Wayne maybe, or one +Anthony Deaver or even +Bliss Morgan .

Look through the whole series and get back to me, ok? ;)
