New & Free Online Games at Playberry!

GAMING: Fresh offerings from Playberry

As a games critic, I have to say that I am hugely impressed with the quality of both free online games and mobile games. There are of course hundreds of really unimpressive free online games, but if you know where to look, there are many gems among the rough that are certainly worth giving a bash.

One new website that offers some quality free online games, is Playberry. Described as a “social gaming website dedicated to bringing great gaming content to your browser”, Playberry both develops and handpicks some really great games. It is made by gamers, for gamers.

New ABC Alphabet for Kids

ABC: The new alphabet for kids in the digital age

Learning the alphabet was fun. Singing the alphabet song has got to be one of the highlights of early life. When we started school many years ago, we had to learn the ABC. Kids still do, but the only thing that stayed the same is that A still stands for Apple!

The Banana Test and the Broke Old Lady

SOMETHING SILLY: Banana Test & the Broke Old Lady


A little old lady answered a knock at the door one day to be confronted by a well-dressed young man carrying a vacuum cleaner.

“Good morning”, said the young man. “If I could take a couple minutes of your time, I would like to demonstrate the very latest in high-powered vacuum cleaners.”

“Go away!” piped the old lady. “I’m broke and haven’t got any money!” and she proceeded to close the door.

Quick as a flash, the young man wedged his foot in the door and pushed it wide open. “Don’t be too hasty!” said he. “Not until you have at least seen my demonstration.” And with that he emptied a bucket of horse manure onto her hallway carpet.

“Now, if this vacuum cleaner does not remove all traces of this horse manure from your carpet, Madam, I will personally eat the remainder.”

The old lady stepped back and said, “Well let me get you a fork, ’cause they cut off my electricity this morning.”


There was a very, very tall coconut tree and four animals, a lion, a chimpanzee, a giraffe, and a squirrel, who pass by. They decide to compete to see who is the fastest to get a banana off the tree. Who do you guess will win? Your answer will reflect your personality. So think carefully. Try and get it within 30 seconds.

Got your answer? Now scroll down to see the analysis.

If your answer is:

  • Lion = you’re dull.
  • Chimpanzee = you are a moron.
  • Giraffe = you’re a complete idiot.
  • Squirrel = you are just hopelessly stupid.

A coconut tree doesn’t have bananas!

Obviously you’re stressed and overworked. You should take some time off and relax, banana brain. Try again next year.

Happy Friday !

When you know you’re getting old

THE YEAR 2011: One score and seven years ago…

I COULD sit here, stare at you through the screen, and tell you that age is only relative; that’s it’s not how young you look but how young you feel; that we are all “young at heart” – eighteen til we die. But let’s not beat around the bush. If you were born in the 80s the following factoids may give you a wake up call to how old you actually are.

  1. It’s been 10 years since 9/11.
  2. Facebook has been around for 7 years.
  3. The “new” Millennium is more than a decade old.
  4. Windows XP was released TEN years ago, in 2001.
  5. The first Harry Potter book came out 14 years ago!
  6. Pierce Brosnan last acted as James Bond 9 years ago.
  7. The first season of F.R.I.E.N.D.S was aired 17 years ago!
  8. Sean Connery is 80 (81 in August) years old and retired.
  9. Mother Theresa and Lady Diana have been dead for 14 years.
  10. The Matrix came out 12 years ago, Keanu Reeves is 46 today.
  11. ‘Kids’ born in 1993 can legally drive, drink and vote this year.
  12. Bryan Adams’ cult song “Summer of 69″ was released 27 years ago.
  13. Kids whom you remember in their diapers are now posting their pics on Facebook.
  14. Macaulay Culkin turns 31 this year August. “Home Alone” came out over 20 years ago.
  15. Terminator 2 is 20 years old. Edward Furlong who portrayed kid John Connor is 33 now (34 in August).
  16. The youngest Spice Girl is 35, the oldest Backstreet Boy turns 40 this year, Gwen Stefani is 41, Madonna 52.

I’m still struggling to get over how old Macaulay Culkin is turning this year. That and how grown up people born in the 90s actually are.

Happy Friday!

SARCASM: An illustration

SARCASM:- “A sharp, bitter, or cutting expression or remark; a bitter gibe or taunt.” More contemporary definitions often emphasize the false, mocking praise and verbal irony of sarcasm rather than its malicious or scornful intent. However, the etymology of the word “sarcasm” clearly indicates that wounding was (at least historically) the primary point. The word comes from the late Latin sarcasmus, derived from the Greek sarkasmos (“a sneer, jest, taunt, mockery”) and sarkazein (“to speak bitterly, sneer”–literally, “to strip off the flesh” or “to bite the lips in rage”). – Sarcasm Society
