Impractical video-game armor for men.
Jonas Hiller models the male equivalent of armor that covers the tits and crotch while leaving vital organs unprotected.

Chris Kluwe was the beginning of nerdery in the NFL. Now the Green Bay Packers are hardcore Settlers of Catan devotees. Next step: MTG drafting at the NFL draft.

I have a friend who is both a gamer and a lifelong fan of a terrible, terrible hockey team. This is my birthday gift to him. Most of my G+ friends aren't into hockey enough to pick up on all the winks, but I figure some of you are probably nerdy enough to be willing to click on anything set to "Still Alive."

This probably isn't as funny if you're not familiar with the situation and people involved, but the actual song they pulled together is awesome regardless. I've seen a lot of these hockey-quotes-autotuned-to-make-music things, and this is by far the best.

I post a lot of examples of anti-homophobia efforts in sports, and I just realized that those of you who aren't sports people might not realize how recent and sudden all this is. Shit like this, sixteen-year-old pro-bound athletes getting together to publicly declare their support for gay rights, this did not happen until You Can Play made it cool. There were soundbites here and there, but until YCP's initial PSA two years ago, it really wasn't talked about.

I'm particularly happy about this one because I saw the Steel play when I visited Chicago for Christmas, and I liked their badass T-shirt designs enough to buy one. Now I'll be proud to wear it.

This is some interesting food for thought.
Once upon a time, years ago, I was driving through a number of stop/go traffic waves on SR 520 at rush hour in Seattle. I decided to try something. On a day when I immediately started hitting the usual "waves" of stopped cars, I decided to drive smoothly. Rather than repeatedly rushing ahead ...

There are a lot of Christian folks out there who could do with taking a page out of this one's book. I love the story about the elephant, in particular--it doesn't say how she got the zoo to go along with that plan, but man, if I had an elephant and this lady marched up to me demanding that I let a dying man ride it, I'd sure as hell fork over the saddle.
It's hard to convince people these days that one lonely person can budge the vast stone wheel of apathy. The truth, though, is the same...

An excellent comic about lady gamers, concluding with a neat piece of information I was not aware of.

Oh, right, I totally failed to put together that the game she was carrying around was obviously what she was playing at the end. Very cool.

A bathroom at the Sochi Olympics. The Russian judge gave the performance a deuce.
