Time Travel


Date: 2010-09-24, 10:09AM MDT

I have a functioning time machine (i know it sounds unbelievable, but I assure you it works) that I need a 2nd person to operate with me.

I'm looking for someone who is adventurous and reliable. Preferable a male; or a female that can do heavy lifting.

I am leaving on September 30th, 2010, in the morning and plan to return October 2nd, 2010. I am going to June 1983 to handle some business.

If you are serious about time travel and are reliable, then please contact me.

You do not have to pay anything, but you would have to provide someone to watch my cat for the time we are gone.

The only qualifications needed are that you are reliable and that the circumference of your head is no more than 64cm.

We will be leaving from Bozeman, MT. Let me know if you want to go with me.

My wife would like that. Oh, also: gross. Poor fishy.


The Dark Side Of 11 Classic Board Games (Of The Day)

Classic games, questionable themes. From The Huffington Post.

MONOPOLY

This board game pits family members against one another, teaching children several important economic lessons: how to stifle competition, squeeze rent from squatters that stop by their properties and exert maximum profits at all costs. Before you know it, you'll have a mini-mogul on your hands. Besides, what 8-year-old shouldn't learn how to handle $500 bills with ease and get out of jail free?

LIFE

Life is really only worth living if you have tons of money, right? According to LIFE, the answer is a definitive "yes!" This board game also teaches us that you MUST get married (to someone of the opposite sex, of course), that purchasing insurance or pursuing a college education really have very little impact on your future, and that you should only help the homeless if you'll get a reward afterward.

HUNGRY HUNGRY HIPPOS

There are a number of misconceptions perpetuated by this classic children's game. First of all, players are bound to be upset when they realize that hippos do not in fact come in a variety of pastel colors. Secondly, hippos don't consume pretty, white marbles. And third, hippos aren't 3-year-old-friendly -- or friendly at all. In fact, they're considered some of the most aggressive and dangerous creatures in the world.

GUESS WHO?

Is it a man? Does he wear glasses? Is he white? These are the sort of ways that kids are encouraged to categorize people in the two-player game, Guess Who? When it comes to this game, the only things that matter are physical. (And if you play the original version, you'll also quickly learn that white men are by far the most desirable, as they far outnumbered other faces.)

OPERATION

If your kids are aspiring surgeons, this game may only lead to confusion -- or encourage them to enter the black market of medicine. Let's be honest, when would you ever surgically remove someone's ribcage for cash? And it's just plain unethical to perform open-heart surgery on a conscious patient.
