I like how everyone is mentioning that you cursed in front of the kid and that is some societal no-no when he is attending a movie with graphic depictions of violence, sex, and cursing. All things that can corrupt children in some peoples eyes. I find it even funnier that "curse words" still have leverage in society. Words, people they are just words. Teach them their uses and what they mean and don't be so afraid of them.

Also @Wolverine: I live in Central Jersey myself and the rudeness and general lack of humanity by those who identify themselves as being from North Jersey, New York, and fans of the Jersey Shore in any incarnation, be it show or locale, is overwhelming.

Also many of you have never been to the movies in Philly where people from the first row will talk to people in the last row during the movie. I shit you not.

And no reference to the Simpsons yet... I guess I'll do it.

Last night we were playing and there were some funny bugs where during cutscenes dudes mouths didn't move. Then the game became pretty much unplayable.

Munchin is card game which is pretty fun. Settlers of Catan is solid.

Also the holy grail of tabletop gaming; Dungeons and Dragons (3.5e)

So while I was at work the other day, I was listening to this week's Bombcast and they mentioned they received a bunch of gaming swag from marketers trying to promote their game/goose up game "scores." The crew said that they toss this stuff aside because they have no use for it because they just want play the games. Mulling over this and being a New Jerseyite, someone who has to confront the the aftermath of the hurricane on the daily, gave me an idea. Given the destruction caused by the recent hurricane I wanted (if possible) to start some sort of charity with the awesome Duders of this community as well as the Bombers.

I figured they could auction off all the swag that they have no use/room for and donate the proceeds to the hurricane relief effort. I figured it would be mutually beneficial because the public has no access those collectibles and the Bombers can rid themselves of the evil taint of marketing goodies they have no use for. I'll probably by anything signed by and if that money can go towards helping others out, more the better.

Also in the same fashion of the Halo marathon, maybe we as the community can set something up similar. For those that can't physically come to volunteer to help up maybe we can raise money by live streaming video game sessions etc.

So I am totally naive about charities and the rules and laws associated with them so I was wondering if you cool cats had any feedback, experience, ideas of your own for some sort of charity work to help with the hurricane. I know there are other video game community associated charities out there but I would love if the Giantbomb community could be at the forefront of it. Cus you are all awesome peeps. All of you.

Even you. ^^
