Apparently when you reach a certain level of mathiness, you stop liking Pi day. I personally just like pies.

An article about Volko Runkhe, designer of Fire in the Lake, a game that I wish to play more. This article really captures the experience of the games he designs.

Good read for those who want to understand a little bit about the wargame hobby.


CIA analyst Volko Ruhnke has found a way to bring the true war experience to board games. Is that a winning formula?

Good video on confirmation bias and other phenomena that reinforce the Anti-vaccination movement.

It's so cold out that I got an ice cream headache when I was greeting people outside before mass.

5th Grader: I saw an upside down rainbow today. 

Me: It's just an optical illusion. 

5th Grader: No, it's not! It was really upside down! 

:) I don't think he understood why I laughed.

I reorganized my game shelf this snow day. There only two games here that I owned before I came to the parish three and a half years ago. Can you guess which ones?

A video about thought germs. 

I don't think I agree with the notion that thoughts have agency in themselves. But, it is an interesting idea.

There's a serious lack of board games in my day today. I think I'm having con withdrawal.

I own this game if anyone wants to try it. 

Dead of Winter is a fun Zombie Survival semi-cooperative game where the various players have to complete secret objectives for their own good and solve crises that threaten the whole colony. However, one of them might be a traitor secretly trying to destroy the colony.

Me: Can someone give me an example of how to break the 5th commandment?

2nd grader: Strangle someone.

Me: Okay, we have murder. Can someone think of another example?
Same 2nd grader: Push someone off a bridge.

(Note: he had other examples, but I forget them all now.)

Me: You seem very imaginative about this...

Same 2nd grader: I watch a lot of CSI and Walking dead.

Other 2nd grader: I watch Walking dead and True Blood.

Me: Um... I think I'm going to move on.

:P Parents, please be careful about what your children are watching.

Well, to be fair, they did give you a good example: "Watching and taking pleasure in horrifically violent TV shows."
