Stranded student scammer unveiled!?
Friday, November 1, 2013
You remember the conman going by the name of Denis Janson? The guy who has been extremely active all over Europe for the past 5 years, scamming helpful people out of hundreds of euros for wanting to do a good deed?

Why microlending is horrible
Tuesday, October 29, 2013
I’ve posted in the past why I’ve stopped using Kiva to try and do charity, and the more I hear about microlenders and their practices, the more I see that I’ve made the right choice. Here’s another nail in that coffin. It’s not surprising that microlending is the fav... .. read more..
Brütal Legend: Another nice game marred by rampart sexism.
Tuesday, September 24, 2013
Warning: Some minor spoilers included So I just finished my play through of Brütal Legend which I got from the latest HIB and I must say, even though I went in with reduced expectations due to how much internet anger there was about the RTS parts of the game, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Disgusting: Teacher rapes 14-Year-Old and gets 30 days in prison.

You read that right, not 30 years. 30 days! 30 days! There are no words… Reasons for this result? The Internet was mean to the poor rapist. “The girl looked older chronologically.” The latter suicide of the victim complicated things for the prosecution…Yep. This is like be... .. read more..

“Why I am no longer a skeptic”
Saturday, August 3, 2013
I can’t help but agree with most of what is written on this post. Lately I do not really feel that the label of “Atheist” or “Skeptic” is enough to make me align with another person, not only because we might not be sharing any ideology, but because very often, the o... .. read more..
Card Gaming while Female
Saturday, July 27, 2013
A new article on cardgamedb.com appeared which is an interview of an experienced tournament-focused woman who plays the Star Wars LCG. It is a very interesting article, which refreshingly gives enough focus onto the gender-shortcoming of the SW card game. It poses some very good questions on why... .. read more..
Saturday, July 27, 2013
I just spent the whole last week working non-stop on a major upgrade for the Star Wars LCG. Literally every free moment I had. Ouch. Well, that’s out now and hopefully it will be well received.

I is sad. Dr. Steel retired.
