This game Macropoly
can be addicting. You move random spaces, paying rent when you land on someone elses building... or if there is no building you build one yourself to collect rent. I'm not totally sure what the goal of the game it, but Mike
says it is to own the best car.
Band Photos Really Are Lame
This site Rock and Roll Confidential
has indexed a bunch of band photos and added commentary mocking each one.
You can look at this site in two different perspectives:
1) Each of these photos are really funny / lame on their own.
2) The collection of band photos as a whole is even funnier because you can see how similar they all are (example: brick walls and train tracks)

Don't Steal My Act!
So I got into work this morning, and I thought I'd take a look at what's new, and went to FARK.com
. And what do I see, this:
Maxim editor-in-chief eats spoonful of cinnamon, hilarity ensues
If you didn't know this, my co-workers and I posted a complete documentary
of myself doing this same challenge on the web back in December of last year. And since we posted the challenge, we have dared each other into other challenges and posted all the results onto our web site StinkFactor.com
So I go and take a look at the "Dare Maxim" page. And I notice the obvious similarities, and while it's nice to know that we inspired the whole thing, it also sucks because some people will see this and be none the wiser of StinkFactor.com and our pioneering efforts to make people laugh and enjoy their day. And the next dare Maxim is doing is with hot sause... um, anyone else thinking about Bob and his tobasco sauce???
But then I had a moment of vindication... Another site I frequently visit, FunJunkie!
, had this posted:
Maxim Rip-off Stinkfactor
News just in: Maxim Editor reads Stinkfactor, laughs until he falls off his chair at social misfits doing crazy stuff for cold cash. Stops laughing. Thinks, "Hey we could rip that off with nary a reciprocal clicky-link and no one would be any the wiser". Proceeds to do so. Maxim Stupid Challenges
So all is well, because some people will see the Maxim thing and think of where the real stink came from.
