Abstinence only program FAIL

From Joystiq:

Look, we really wanted to write a harsh diatribe about the University of Central Florida’s federally-funded game development project: An Avatar-esque edu-game that teaches young girls to ignore the sexual advances of their contemporaries. We wanted to talk about all the things that $434,000 of taxpayer’s money could have been spent on, or how silly of a concept a motion-controlled abstinence game really is. Unfortunately, our spite turned to pure, unbridled glee after watching this Fox News Report on the project.

Between the news-friendly gaming lingo (“digital puppetry,” “jumping into the skin,” “interactors,” etc.) and the contorted, soulless husks that comprise the game’s cast of sexually aware characters, the video — posted just after the jump — is a comedy goldmine. Dig in, gang.


I’m in the Singapore airport waiting for my flight to Hong Kong. This place is HUGE.

I slept for about 1.5 hours in a chair in front of a coffee shop.

It feels so good to be on the way home. I’m about 23 hours from getting home.

Is that not some crazy-ass shit?
