People can't know what you're like or how you are unless you interact. You have rights too; just need to make sure you know what they are before speaking up... I've found anyway.

No, I'm not talking about the sugar tax that has had a significant amount of news and hype around it recently. Nor am I talking about salt content, or any of the other myriad of conversations around nutritional levels in food...

Here is a clever example of serious games. As I understand the term, serious games are games designed to teach something or change behavior in some way. This particular games looks fun and encourages kindness to strangers.

On this day:
At 26th April of 1989, the first episode of the popular anime "Dragon Ball Z" aired. 'Dragon Ball Z' (commonly abbreviated as DBZ) is the long-running sequel to the anime 'Dragon Ball.' The series is a close adaptation of the second (and far longer) portion of the Dragon Ball manga written and drawn by Akira Toriyama. The title "Dragon Ball Z" was chosen by Akira Toriyama because Z is the last letter of the alphabet and he wanted to finish the series because he was running out of ideas for Dragon Ball. 'Dragon Ball Z' first aired in Japan on Fuji TV, before being dubbed in several territories around the world, including the United States, Australia, Europe, India, and Latin America. In 1995, Funimation Productions licensed Dragon Ball Z for an English-language release in North America. 

One of the first well known animes, DBZ took a step in Japanese animation that no one has ever seen before. Although before this there was Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z is not only better known, but a lot more praised.

Five years have passed since Goku and his friends defeated Piccolo Jr. and restored peace to the planet. Gohan - Goku's son - and a variety of good, bad, and morally ambiguous characters are back, and perpetually not ready for action! Aliens, androids, and magicians all hatch evil plots to destroy the world and it's up to Goku to save the Earth once more - that is, once he and his comrades train plentifully in preparation.  Enemies will become friends and power levels will rise to unimaginable levels, but even with the help of the legendary Dragon Balls and Shen Long will it be enough to save Earth from ultimate destruction ?

Despite having flaws, many debatable, 'Dragon Ball Z' reigns supreme over other animes in terms of longevity, popularity, storyline, and most importantly, action. One of the strongest points of the show is that even though it's obvious good will overcome evil, 'Dragon Ball Z' is incredibly suspenseful and will always leave you at the edge of your seat wondering if each new villain can be stopped, and what will happen if they are not. Despite being heavily based on action, Dragon Ball Z's near 300 episodes often delve into story lines involving humor, strengthening their abilities for their newest opponents, and the psychology of each character. 

From Vegeta, a rebel hero who early on is an enemy, but allies with the Z team but leaves doubt if he will betray them to Gohan, Goku's son who aspires to become a hero like his father but who also secretly hates to fight and wishes to not do battle (which confuses his father), to lesser characters like Krillin, Goku's childhood friend who often is beaten to a bloody pulp by enemies or is flat out killed (which happens to many characters, and is often the base of how the characters find the necessary inner strength to overcome).

Speaking of multiple deaths, in 'Dragon Ball Z', death is not always final as the characters use the Dragon Balls, mystical objects that when collected can grant wishes. These wishes are used for a variety of purposes but are often bring dead heroes back to life. Despite the shows name being based on them, they play a minimal role (often only being used at the end of each saga - a series of episodes revolving around a powerful villain). Further, the balls are not always available for use and are also limited in the types of wishes they can produce, which in some instances does in fact make death final. 

Two TV specials based on 'Dragon Ball Z' were produced and broadcast on Fuji TV. The first two were 'Dragon Ball Z: Bardock – The Father of Goku' in 1990 and 'Dragon Ball Z: The History of Trunks' in 1993, the later being based on a special chapter of the original manga. Both were licensed by Funimation in North America and AB Groupe in Europe. 

Additionally, two original video animations (OVAs) bearing the Dragon Ball Z title have been made. The first is 'Dragon Ball Z Side Story: Plan to Eradicate the Saiyans', which was originally released in 1993 in two parts as "Official Visual Guides" for the video game of the same title. 'Dragon Ball: Plan to Eradicate the Super Saiyans' was a 2010 remake of this OVA. None of the OVAs have been dubbed into English, and the only one to see a release in North America is the 2010 remake, which was subtitled and included as a bonus feature in 'Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2.'

Dragon Ball Z was listed as the 78th best animated show in IGN's "Top 100 Animated Series", and was also listed as the 50th greatest cartoon in Wizard magazine's "Top 100 Greatest Cartoons" list. The film ranked #5 on Wizard's Anime Magazine on their "Top 50 Anime released in North America". 

Dragon Ball Z 's popularity is reflected through a variety of data through online interactions which show the popularity of the media. If you're looking for a good anime to watch, look no further. This show will blow your mind to no end.

One of my favorite songs of all time is The Devil Went Down to Georgia, because it's hilarious. 

The devil is down on his luck, pop culture having turned people away from selling their immortal spirits, and he's slumming somewhere where he assumes people are rock-dumb witless marks ready for the eternal harvest.

The very first person he meets is some yokel with a fiddle and he's like "Oh shit, I got this." He rolls on up, all swagger and brimstone and is like "I guess that's good fiddle playing, idiot mortal. Not like the music of the spheres, which I was present for the creation of, but you're okay, you know?"

And this dude, Johnny, is like [EYEBROW RAISE].

So the Lucifer Morningstar, thinking he's baited this trap, literally hops up on what is essentially a sales podium and gets all "Look, you dumb-diddle fiddle-frick. I, the actual devil, challenge you to a jerkhole farmhand rap-battle. I win, you suffer eternal torment. You win, this tacky but expensive doorstop." The devil rapidly adds: "It looks a bit like a fiddle, doesn't it? Yeah? Pretty cool, huh?"

This is the god-actually-damned Lord of Lies with the most suspicious prize on earth and this yabba-dabba-dork doesn't even consider his options. There's no bargaining, no questions, no moral quandry. Johnny's just like "That is so metal! Frick yeah, Satan. Buckle your boiling ass to that tree-stump, we're going for a ride!"

So, the devil, one of the angels who pushed his hands into the stuff of darkness of brought forth the building blocks of creation, who successfully defied a vengeful omnipotent space-dad. is like "I got you now, fiddleprick." And busts out a gnarly tune on his fiddle, which may or may not be the golden one, the song isn't terribly clear. 

Johnny listens patiently, but the second the devil is done he's like: "Yeah, not bad. For an angel." And then breaks right into the kind of fiddling that Mathias Fiddlius, the Roman Fiddle Despot* himself, would weep with joy to hear.

The devil doesn't try to weasel out of his loss. He doesn't throw a fit. He's like, wide-eyed. He mouths "holy frick" in a breathless gasp and just... holds the fiddle out. He's been beaten and he knows it. He doesn't understand how, but he knows he'll never fiddle on earth again.

This is a tree lobster (dryococelus australis). They were long thought extinct after being consumed by rats that over-ran a nearby island. So the islanders now have an interesting choice: rats everywhere, or giant disgusting insects everywhere.  #rollforinitiative
