Are we all perhaps linked by invisible bonds? Do the actions of one affect others, even if those others are far away? Our lives and the universe itself may be all part of a single mechanism in which all creatures and events are 'entangled' with one another.

Tuesday TimeWasters

This week I have no ordinary time-wasting game/activity, but a MEGA TimeWaster, or should I say Meta TimeWaster, since the name of the website is MetaCafe.

This is a really cool site where you can find not only videos but games, picture galleries, animations, even simple text jokes. Plus you can download and install a program that fetchs all this from the site automatically for you, so you don't even have to open your browser and actually go to the site. It will run MetaCafe on your desktop! Or it can sit quietly in your taskbar, waiting for that moment when you have time to waste. You can upload items you like to the site as well.

You can custumize it to get just those type of things you want, like certain types of videos or games and there are even "content filters" if you want to block 'explicit images' or 'violence' or 'explicit language'.

Yes, MetaCafe does have sexually explicit images, and that is the only real complaint I have about it. NO, NO, it's not that I don't like (love) porn, it's just that it all seems to be 'straight' porn!! Ewww....why do those straight people always have to be "flaunting their lifestyles" like that? Maybe not enough gay poeple have discovered this site yet and uploaded any of the "good stuff", if you know what I mean. Maybe I should start the ball rolling by putting up a gallery of pictures. I'll let you know here if I do that, so you can check it out.

Since recently finding MetaCafe, I have wasted much time watching videos, playing various little games and generally throwing away precious untold hours of my life. When I should be doing more important things like eating, sleeping, or having a 'real life'.

Here is a sample video I just saw: It's from one of those weird Japanese game shows. Apparently you have to answer questions quickly or.....
Well, just watch it and see what happens to those that answer too slowly.

Hope the prizes were worth it!
