Fun Factor:★☆☆☆☆ 

I’ve always been big fan of history, and even more of natural history. I was one of those kids that was always checking out the books on dinosaurs from the school library. So, when I saw this cute little match 3 game based on earthly evolution, Evolver, I was curious enough to take a chance on it.

So, I boot it up, and there is a listing of the stages the game progresses through. We start in the sea with a grid of low level phylum Protozoa, little amoeba bubbles, and when we come up with a match, our cells evolve into what looks to be a sponge, or maybe coral, then a match 3 of those becomes some kind of annelid, and those become a shelled mollusk, then those become starfish, and somehow, the starfish devolve back into jellyfish…. what? That progression never came up in my middle school biology class! Anyway, the undersea progressions was about as far as I got, because it took so long to go up the scale, that within the hour trial, I never got to the land-based animals. A shame, because I was really looking forward to the dinosaurs. It just took far too long to get where you needed to be to get to the next level, so on my little grid planet, life never got out of the water.

Sniglet of the Day : April 27

Sniglet Of The Daysnart (snärt) a. (v.) To sneeze and fart simultaneously.

Don’t know how many of us have actually done this, but it seems like a snart would be a time when your body was trying to explode from both end. Possibly during a a flu, or maybe a hangover, oh, as if you could feel any worse! If it has happened, hopefully it was in the privacy of your own home, or perhaps in a bathroom stall at work. That would certainly leave an interesting mystery in the office. “I swear someone snarted while I was in there!” a coworker would say, but of course, no one would know who it was, and you certainly would not own up to it. Snarts can be tiring things, but if your body is all confused about itself, and you end up have a busnart [burp, sneeze, and fart all at once], or even worse, a busnartup [burp, sneeze, fart,and hiccup all at once}, that brief, explosive moment in time will leave you drained, confused, and dazed wondering, “Where did that all come from?” and “Please don’t let that ever happen again!” Our bodies are merely organic things, and from us down to the lowly amoeba, we all pretty much do the same thing, but I doubt we’ll ever see some science show that features amoebas busnartupping.
