The Wolverine Scale

The Wolverine Scale was developed by my friend Julia (see here, here, and here), who believes that Wolverine was created for the sole purpose of being the most bad ass thing in the known universe.

The Wolverine Scale is 1 through 5, with Wolverine being a 6. This scale does not rate coolness, though Wolverine is very cool. It only rates according to how bad ass the person is. No one other than Wolverine can have a rating higher than five. Using the examples below, we can ascertain how bad ass a person is, based on Wolverine.

The Wolverine Scale

1. Gordon Freeman (Yeah, he's awesome, but even I wear contacts.)

2. Sephiroth (I love the man, but he was more pretty than Bad Ass.)

3. Albel Nox, Chuck Norris

4. Dante, Captain America (Say what you want, this dude is Bad Ass.)

5. Link, Bruce Lee, Yuri (of Shadow Hearts), Samuel Jackson

6. Wolverine

Physical Activity + Video Games = Health

So the Mayo Clinic said that adding physical activity to video games fights obesity.

No duh.

Ask anyone who plays Dance Dance Revolution. Our household lost a total of 15 pounds in the first month we started playing.

But our girth really isn't anything to scoff at. The Wii mote goes a long way to fighting the good fight for healthy living. But since we are a visually stimulated people, here is a visual list:

The Call of Cthulhu

With Hollywood spitting and sputtering out horrible Lovecraft movies, the HPLHS has come to the rescue with a good movie. Okay, so this thing has been out for a while and I've owned a copy for months, but a lot of people still don't know it exists.

The Call of Cthulhu

Pick up a copy and enjoy. It's won several awards and the end is genuinely scary!
