Contrary to our expectations, the Mariokart Drinking Game
does not work with older versions of Mariokart. You need Double Dash
, kids. Sorry.
! It's not about social cred, it's about books. Books you own, books you like. Tagging books, rating books, reviewing books. The site combines user-submitted info to give you all kinds of information
For example. Six of the 25 top-rated books are by Bill Watterson. John P. Meier
is the author whose books average the highest rating. Already I've discovered the sci-fi book Jennifer Government
by looking for other works tagged "libertarian" and "sci-fi." Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
is the most-listed book — you can list 200 with a free account. These authors have LibraryThing accounts
. There are four different book recommendation scripts.
And seriously, we should forget Wikipedia
and just start linking to these mindblowing author pages, I mean, I can look up the average review for a work by Dave Eggers
. They are collecting the stats and they, we, are rating him as a (mediocre) author. It's the wisdom of crowds, people!
Here's my profile
, here's my library
, here's Rock Show Girl's library
. She's the one who wised me up. There's no friends list, but you can add people to you watch list and see what they're reading.
Get an account. Everyone knows you're a geek; now it's time to come out as a bibliophile.
Speaking of goodness, it's time to play many hours of The Warriors
. Think A Clockwork Orange
meets Grand Theft Auto
. Weep with joy.
Double Dash? Are you sure? I've only ever played it with 64.
I'm fairly sure you're mistaken. Ben and I tried it with 64 the other day and it was a completely different game. Jonas already had his Gamecube junior year when we started playing.
hmmmmmm... Ok, maybe the 'only' was a bit of a stretch. But I'm fairly sure I remember playing 64 the night of the Rubik's Cube party. Too bad those pictures show people rather than the TV screen.
Dangit. I hate it when pictures show people and not TV's. And I'm positive it was the Gamecube version.
Yeah... we looked at the controllers and they're certainly Gamecube. I vow never to speak again.
