Chimps play not only marvel but also Pac-Man

Not sure if everyone saw this or not but this is one of the more amazing things I have seen in a while. I think the first chimpanzee is definitely better, it really seems like he (she?) can tell the difference of when to eat the ghosts or not. I would love to see a followup story to this like a year from now to find out if they develop any better skills.

Evo east is this weekend. Good luck to everyone, I unfortunately can't make it but I'm sure it will be awesome.

There is an Evo lite event at Comic Con in San Diego this weekend. Hopefully that goes well and we can do more stuff like that.

Can you believe that when Jaffe updates his blog every major videogame website makes a news item about it? Amazing. So yeah...go read what El Jeffe has to say and be part of what the cool kids are doing.

On a painful note I am getting all 4 of my wisdom teeth taken out on Monday. Pain Pain Pain.

Good luck with the wisdom teeth removal. That's probably going to end up being the most miserable week of food consumption ever.

That big white monkey with the red t-shirt seemed real smart. I swear, it sounded like it was speaking.

Good luck with with your wisdom teeth. I went through the same procedure about 2 years ago. Hope you recover asap.

Thanks everyone about the wisdom teeth thing, I'm a little apprehensive about the whole ordeal.

How long did it take to recover?

For myself, it was a good 2-3 weeks before I went back to eating solid food again. But I'm a rather frail specimen. Another SF player I know in Sydney went through the same thing a few months after me, and he turned up at a CvS2 tourney about a week after the removal. On the other hand, I refused to leave my house for about a month, but as I said, I'm a pansy. :P So it varies depending on the person invovled, and how things go when they take the teeth out.

But don't stress about. Just follow your doctor's orders and take it easy, and I'm sure you'll be back to normal in no time.
