Pretty amazing stuff, huh?

Don’t Worry, Be Happy

Some Online Games to Pass the Time

Do you feel like not doing your work and procrastinating sometimes?

Well, have I got what you need. Online games! That’s right, addictive online games are always a good way to waste your time.

Here are a couple of my favorites (in no particular order):


Winterbells

Winterbells is a very soothing game where you make a bunny hope on little bells. The higher you go, the more challenging it gets. The background music is also a plus.

Drench

Drench is a simple game where you have to “drench” the entire board in one color. Don’t be deceived by it’s simplicity, once you get past the first few levels, it gets really tricky. Again, this has no background music, so you might want to put something on while you play.

Guess the Colors

Guess the Colors is one of those games that makes you think. It’s a good way to waste time but exercise your brain at the same time! (Note: The colored pegs can, and do, repeat. So keep that in mind when making guesses)

Click Maze 2

I don’t know what Click Maze 1 was like, but Click Maze 2 is fun. The first round is really simple, but then you start getting into moving walls, and that’s where it starts to get difficult. It’s a pretty mindless game, but fun nonetheless.

Cat Gets 100 Stars

Cat Gets 100 Stars

Cat Gets 100 Stars:

The premise of this game is really simple. You control a cat. Find all 100 stars, and you win! As you can see, there clearly isn’t 100 stars on the screen. Can you find the others? The game only has this 1 level, but it’s really satisfying when you find all the stars.

Dice Wars

Dice Wars is a bit like Risk, only there aren’t any special pieces and no countries. It’s really fun and addicting. Give it a try.

Captain Forever

Captain Forever

Captain Forever: http://www.captainforever.com/captainforever.php

The premise of the game is really interesting. You pilot this ship and destroy other ships. Once you destroy them, you can augment your ship with their debris. Eventually, you can build it up into something like what you see to the left. Here’s some background game story info: http://www.captainforever.com/readme.php.

Desktop Tower Defense

Desktop Tower Defense

Desktop Tower Defense: http://www.handdrawngames.com/DesktopTD/Game.asp

The goal of the game is to defend the desktop from the creeps by building towers. There is some strategy involved in placing your towers, so plan it out well.

Bugs

Another game from Orisinal. As per their trend, this game is another relaxing/soothing game, especially with the nice music. Click once to charge your jump (make sure none of the bugs touch your bubble), then let go and jump (making sure not to land on any bugs). Any bugs in your jump bubble fly away and you get points!

THE MISSILE GAME 3D

THE MISSILE GAME 3D

The Missle Game 3D: http://www.addictinggames.com/missilegame3d.html

Test your skills of dexterity in 3D! Navigate a missile through a tunnel with obstacles. I just found this game, and it’s a lot of fun.

That’s about it for now. I’ll update this post if I find more interesting online games.

Do you have any favorite online games? Let me know in the comments!

Well, here’s a helpful diagram I found that makes it easier to understand:

My “Hello” to the World.

Welcome to my blog! My name is Paul, and I am a college student studying Biomedical Engineering (BME) in the US. I have finally decided to join the blogging craze. I know I’m quite behind on the curve, but I don’t mind.

I will not be revealing my full identity on this blog. Why? I’m not sure, but I think it’ll be more interesting this way. All you need to know is that my name is Paul and I am a college student. In subsequent posts, I will most likely reaveal small tidbits of info about me, most likely unintentionally. So if you want to know more about me, you’ll just have to read my blog. 🙂

I felt is was fitting that my first post would be the weekend after my quarter ended. Finals are done, and I have time to think about stuff other than biomechanics and biostatistics. Also, during this break I will be going on a cruise to the Caribbean (over Christmas), and then I’ll be in Dubai during New Year’s. If anything interesting happens, I’ll post here.

However, that’s not the main purpose of this blog. The purpose of this blog is to let you, the people, know anything interesting I stumble onto. For example, today, I’d like to show you an awesome widget that charts the entire history of the internet, particularly all the memes that have arisen since the internet’s inception.

Here’s the link: http://www.dipity.com/tatercakes/Internet_Memes/embed_tl?skin

WARNING: If you get too caught up in it (i.e. zoom in on the timeline for a more detailed view of memes), you will lose track of time and spend hours browsing through the history of the internet (I know this from experience).

The site, Dipity, can do this for all kinds of subjects, such as a timeline of the H1N1 vaccine or the official Tom Cruise timeline. It’s pretty cool, and I’m still exploring it’s uses.

That’s all for tonight. I’m sure I’ll have more interesting things later today.
