ATIT Reheated from six years ago: Barack, pick Smilin' Joe!

By Jack Brummet with National Affairs Ed. Pablo Fanque



While the campaign and Barack himself have been very circumspect about his choice for running mate, they have floated at least the following names:

  • Virginia Governor Tim Kaine
  • Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius
  • Indiana Senator Evan Bayh (an olive branch to Hillary supporters)
  • Senator Joe Biden (our favorite)
  • Georgia Ex-Senator Sam Nunn
Pick Smilin' Joe, Barack! He's got the foreign policy experience you need, and he's great on the campaign trail. He never gets tired of talking!

"Pause: Get out of the game," a videogame about the dangers of videogame addiction

By Jack Brummet, Games Editor


Pause: Get Out Of The Game is a game, or, what the original publisher called "an informational campaign"  to raise awareness about "the dangers of video game addiction."  Pause was developed by Dwayne Rajkumar.

The game "mimics the life of a video game addict as they play at the cost of ignoring their family, friends, responsibilities, and personal health. The player is presented with choices and the opportunity to stop playing at any time; consequences of continuing result in the degrading of the
ir characters physical and personal life."



Not too shockingly, comments for their YouTube video are disabled.  And, alas, the game has disappeared from the net (so far). It was available for download in a couple of different locations, finally ending up on Dropbox, where it is also not available.

On YouTube, I found another anti-game screed, posted below.  It is a parody.
