There has never been a better time to be a gamer than now. With high-definition TVs, 3-D-enabled titles and gaming hardware that takes advantage of all that goodness, being a gamer today is like being a fat kid at a buffet--everything looks good.
As a gamer, I often want nothing more than to come home and jump into a fierce game of "Call of Duty," blow stuff up playing "Killzone 3" or even bounce around the landscape in "Dragon Age." But there are days when playing those titles is too much of a time suck. The games on this list are for those plodding days. They offer the perfect combination of fun and a lack of commitment for all you lazy bastards out there.

I dig dark chicks.
Anyone can dream of dating a pretty specimen with a body that can start forest fires and a brain that's just above cooked oatmeal on the food chain, but where's the fun in trying to understand a creature as simple as that? Give me a girl with a fist full of restraining orders, a penchant for the macbre and "Pretend That We're Dead" as her ringtone, and you've got someone I can bring home to the goth Momma I never had.
I'm not saying or advocating that someone who is violent or unstable makes for a better relationship. In fact, it's quite the opposite. Girls who dig the darker side of life seem to have their existence more figured out than those who walk on sidewalks made of jelly beans and rainbows. Yes, the world can be a rotten place, and just like everything in it, it can have its moments of happiness and joy, but I think it's better to saddle up to someone who knows how to embrace or laugh at the darker shade of gray when things look their bleakest. Watching the Apocalypse is so much nicer when you're with someone who can appreciate the majesty and splendor of a mushroom cloud for the .4 seconds before it melts off your face.

That's really the great question that plagues our time, isn't it? What if Monoploy, the classic board game, were about internet memes instead of desolate Atlantic City thoroughfares? What if?! Urlesque has answered that question with this Memeopoly board game. As you can see, the most expensive properties are LOLcats and Rick Roll, and the least are meme newcomers Antoine Dodson and Double Rainbow guy. As with regular Monopoly, the yellow properties on Memeopoly are the best. Star Wars Kid, Grape Lady and Tron Guy? That's a meme all-star team if there ever was one.
Nothing sends me into a spittle-flying tizzy like hearing that a stockbroker made millions by betting for the total destruction of humanity. Michael Lewis, the author behind "The Blind Side" and the stunning economic curtain lifter "The Big Short," revealed on a recent "Colbert Report" that one of the character's in his shocking book about the collapse of the American markets has started buying nickels by the mega-ton. What's he’s going to do with $20 million in nickels? Go to the strip club and make it "hail"?
No, he's making an investment. He realized that the metal in the nickel is worth more than the actual nickel. And even though it's illegal to destroy currency, something tells me he can use his money to buy a lawyer who'll make a court force the Justice Department's attorneys to sing "I'm a Little Teapot" in their closing statements at his criminal trial.
