Topics Covered in this Installment of AVDP

  • Grey’s Anatomy Book Review

    greys-anatomy-review

    Amazon reviews are pretty hilarious a lot of the time. I ran into this gem looking through some classical book reviews and I really thought long and hard… Is it trolling or is this person really this confused? What is your vote?

  • Golden Ratio is Bullshit

    golden-ratio

    There is no evidence to support people prefer golden ratio artwork to non-golden ratio artwork. Also, the ratio itself can be retroactively applied to almost anything. Read more via Fast Company.

  • Vanity Plates in Abu Dhabi

    In Dubai, or Abu Dhabi whatever, people spend big bucks on license plates. Smaller numbers are more exclusive and go for millions. I express my feelings of distaste about people being showy and arrogant with their fortune. Yury challenges me, asking if it turns out the same person who spent 2 million on a plate also donated 20 million to charity that year. Does that still make him a bad person? Read more.

  • Frustration Playing Retro Fighting Games

    I found myself hungry for the fun of some of the older MK games, particularly Deception and Deadly Alliance on the original XBox. I used to love these games and I still have them both. So I plug it in, ready for a wild time … Well problem is 50% of the roster is locked. I have to play the bullshit single-player campaign to earn KOINS unlock all of the KHARACTERS from the KRYPT. Who has time for that shit? I just want to play Mortal Kombat with my friends, not log 8 hours playing the half-assed single player tag along.

    We discuss if there is a better way for video game companies to create games with lots of playability on first release but also to have good playability for the retro scene.

  • Woman Calls for Help Through Pizza Delivery

    While being held against her will by her boyfriend a woman orders pizza on her mobile device and comments in a help message. Plan works.
