Total Drek

Or, the thoughts of several frustrated intellectuals on Sociology, Gaming, Science, Politics, Science Fiction, Religion, and whatever the hell else strikes their fancy. There is absolutely no reason why you should read this blog. None. Seriously. Go hit your back button. It's up in the upper left-hand corner of your browser... it says "Back." Don't say we didn't warn you.

Greenmeat

For anyone who has an interest in what's going on in Iraq, the folks over at Something Awful have some interesting stuff up today. One of their readers, who goes by the name "Greenmeat" was being deployed to Iraq some time back along with his intelligence platoon. Problem was- they were going without the armor normally advised for such missions.

The guys at Something Awful, whatever else you may think of them, came through with real style. The outcome of their efforts was amazing, and the total result of the effort was just awesome. Greenmeat's platoon would have their armor, and then some. Just one more thing dispelling the notion that gamers are terrible people.

Since then, we haven't heard from Greenmeat, until just recently when we recevied a letter, some photographs, and one helluva video clip. It's worth taking a look at.

Just go find the July 5, 2004 Front Page (I'll link it tomorrow when it gets its own URL) and start reading.

UPDATE:You can find the page in question here.
