Back in Five
Chewing Pixels is closed for a week as we go hunt the sun.
If only more people on the internet wrote about videogames so you could plug the gap… OH WELL.
In the meantime, two things:
Old Man Murray a.k.a. the voice of Portal a.k.a. Erik Walpow goes to Brickcon 2008 (where Lego nerds congregate and build stuff) and takes some pictures of Zombie Apocafest, a giant, bloody urban zombie apocalypse rendered entirely in Lego.
(Btw: younger gamers mightn’t have heard of OMM. If that’s you go read this and then head on through the archives. This was eight years ago! Cripes.)
Oh, also I have an idea for something. Did anyone watch the vice presidential, um, “debate”? (if not head here and take a look in super-awesome Web two-point-oh-o-vision.)
The non-partisan site factcheck.org went through the entirety of event and has collated each candidate’s lies and half-truths into a useful article.
Useful except for the fact it’s kinda long and stuff. Does anyone fancy translating the piece into a neat set of graphs and statistics so we can see which of the two told the most lies, the biggest lies and the whitest lies?
If you have time it’d also be good to do some neat percentage statistics on how far the figures each candidate quoted were from the truth. I’ve searched around bit, as far as I can see, nobody’s bothered doing any stat-crunching from the debate yet. So, someone should do that! It’ll get a hundred thousand diggs for sure and probably swing a bunch of (lazy) votes one way or another.
