In central Minnesota, there is this guy who always stands outside in a Superman costume. He always has an American flag and all he does is just stand there. Every once in a while he will try to make money by selling pictures with him. He used to stand outside a local Dairy Queen until he got a restraining order. I have also been told that he has been kicked out of at least seven malls in Minnesota.

Recently some people made a movie. They dressed up as Darth Vader and stood next to him. See what happens when Darth Vader steals the flag:

(oh ya, he doesn't always wear the big puffy suit that he wore in the top pictre)

It's been a while since I've seen him last, but dispite the restraining order, I can assure you that he will be back at Dairy Queen next summer.

The Nintendo Wii was released on Sunday. On Saturday, I decided to go and wait in line for it. I got in line at about 9:00 a.m. and waited 15 hours and 1 min (it released at 12:01) for it.

For those of you who don't know what a Nintendo Wii is, it is a new video game console in which the controllers have motion sensors and Bluetooth (so they're wireless).

I have to say, I'm impressed. Nintendo did well. Some features I like:

-Bluetooth controller relives the gamer from the cord
-Motion sensing makes the player feel like he/she is in the game
-Infrared allows a user to point at specific parts of the screen
-Nunchuck attachment (comes with one in package) makes the game even more realistic
-Wii Connect24 keeps the Wii always connected to the internet via WiFi. This allows you to receive "Wii-Mails" and play online games
-Backwards compatibility with the Gamecube games and accessories allowing me to play all my games on one system
-The Wii looks good
-And not last nor least, Wii Sports comes with
-And much, much more

Nintendo really did good. I am proud to say that I was the fourth person to get a Nintendo Wii in my town and that it ROCKS!

Wow! I never knew digg was so powerful. I had heard about digg shutting down sites due to bandwith, but I never realized how many people it took to do that. Last night my blog got on the homepage of digg. By this time today it has over 950 diggs and 30,000 unique visitors. Now I know why webpages with little bandwith get shut down within minutes of debutting on the homepage of digg.

So if you liked the post about geek/nerd tests then

Internet Explorer 7

Today I was reading digg. There was a post that obviously promoted IE7. It gave Add-Ons for it. 2 posts down was a post that obviously demoted IE7. It gave the bug list for it. I then realized that these were posted by the same person. They were even on the same site. Weird.
