The most precious Jewell

December 31, 1999. I was a Freshman in high school. I didn’t believe the world as I knew it would come to an end – be it from the lack of foresight in early computer programmers or from any more supernatural or religious causes – but I was [...]

Apples to Easter

Apples to Apples is quite possibly the greatest game ever created. I’m not going to attempt to fully detail how one plays the game. You can check the Wikipedia article for that sort of thing. To be honest, I don’t think the game can be properly [...]
