The way I see it, if people go to Iraq, a current warzone, and then get kidnapped, well, surely it was down to their act of stupidity. Aid workers go there knowing the risks and accept those risks, and as for telecomms engineers and computer technicians, well, they go there for reasons of greed.

Workers at a drinks stall rescued the 2.5-metre (8-foot) tall model with a yellow head and blue torso.
"We saw something bobbing about in the sea and we decided to take it out of the water," said a stall worker. "It was a life-sized Lego toy."
A woman nearby added: "I saw the Lego toy floating towards the beach from the direction of England."
The toy was later placed in front of the drinks stall.

So, in the course of a conversation a work colleague may say.. 'bugger'...
Most people don't really think about the true meaning but, what's he's just said is... sodomize.
Well.. now, that's just a strange thing to say when you mess up, isn't it?
So, that got me onto looking at phrases, and their true meaning, like 'take a rain check.' It relates to baseball days, where fans could leave a game early if it rained, and get a voucher to return to another game. Pity those b*stard N.Y. METS didn't do that when I was out there.... damned MR. MET SON OF A B*TCH... I hate that baseball headed clown... I HATE YOU MR. MET... I HATE YOU SO BAD, I want to knock your BASEBALL HEAD OFF... I HATE YOU MR. MET... I HATE YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU.
Oh.. shit... this wasn't meant to be an anger blog and I really strayed from the watch, play, touch, movie, games and gadgets theme....
Shit contributing buddies... I'm sorry...
Curious George was great, Lemmings sucks and I hope the iPhone is a flop (though I doubt it will be :( ).
There we go... back on track...

I like gaming but don't have the time or inclination to pad through a 30 hour in-depth game. I love the missions in GTA San Andreas but hate the repetitive nature of having to return to missions when I fail them, rather than just replaying them. I'm sure many people love that immersive world but, for me... it's just repetitive. Also, I hate having to sit in front of the television to play games... I like to play games in the toilet or in whichever room I want to. IT'S TRUE MAN!
ERGO...I love my PSP, it's portable so I can play anywhere, including the potty which, I have to say, is a great place to sit and play a game...it's got a nice bright screen which the GB advance lacks and although it doesn't have as many 'different' games like the DS does, mine's hacked so I can play (ahem) 'homebrew' games and it's got quite a few mini games nowadays. By this I mean a game that contains several simple stupid games with very few keys to learn and which last maybe up to 5 minutes each. Do well on a game and you'll unlock a new minigame and so on.
Hot Pixel is one such game, it's made by Atari and has several (200ish) mini games. Some last as short a time as 10 seconds, others up to a couple of minutes. Some can be repetitive, i.e. same thing, different difficulty level but all are fun. :) I think games like this are great as they begin to open up the gaming world to people who otherwise wouldn't play games. If you've played Hot Pixel and enjoyed it, I recommend Kazook, Ape Academy/Ape Academy 2, Hot Brain and Work Time Fun.
