I like to have a few cookies with my coffee in the morning. Not a lot – just a small handfull. Now, we don’t usually have enough bowls in the house to last the day, but we have plenty of mugs. So, instead of using a bowl, I grab a coffee mug to hold my cookies. I sit down in my home office with two mugs – one full of coffee and one with a few cookies in it. Anyone with any degree of common sense will note that this is a terrible idea.
I’ve reached into the wrong mug on more than one occasion, dipping my fingers into the bottom of a long-cold cup of coffee. Other times I would lift the cup to drink and get hit in the lip with a cookie. These were my warnings, which I did not heed.
It was only a matter of time before I stuck my hand into hot coffee, thus burning my fingers, causing a mess, and making myself look like an idiot. Thankfully, nobody was around when I pullled this stunt, but my face turned red anyway.
There are some things which are embarrasing even when nobody is looking.

Batman: Arkham City
A look back at one of my favorite games. The gameplay was stellar, but the underlying story was clumsy and oddly constructed.
If Star Wars Was Made in 2006?
Imagine if the original Star Wars hadn't appeared in the 1970's, but instead was pitched to studios in 2006. How would that turn out?
