Here is a sexy clock to tell what time it is, if your's is broken.


Challenge Accepted comic

The four-pane series is believed to have originated on Bungie’s Flood forums in a discussion thread titled “When your teacher tells you” circa early November 2010. Prior to the popularity of 4-pane iterations, “Challenge Accepted” became a popular trope in TV sitcom series How I Met Your Mother. In the series, the ladies man Barney Stinson (played by Neil Patrick Harrison) often takes up seemingly impossible challenges that others bring up as a joke. The earliest instance of Barney uttering “challenge accepted” can be heard in the Season 4 of the series.





Now, let's put in some fun games!!!

Awesome Thing - Rock, Paper, Scissors

Today's awesome thing of the day is an age old game: rock, paper scissors. Actually, I don't know how old the game is...

(time passes)

Okay I checked on wikipedia. Basically, no one knows, but it was popularized in the later 1900s in Japan. Now that you've learned something, have an demotivational poster as an award:


Seconds before they're all covered by a huge piece of paper.

I've always thought people played rock, paper, scissor (RPS) to pass the time, much like Chinese checkers or picking your nose. However, I've found out that some people actually take this game seriously. In fact, there's a whole study of advanced techniques of the game.

Advanced RPS (http://www.worldrps.com/advanced.html) details it. Reading it will make you smarter, guaranteed. I mean, just look at it!
The Character of Scissors
Scissors are a tool. As children, we use them to cut construction paper for craft projects. As adults, we may cut cloth for clothing or use scissors to open plastic packaging. Scissors are associated with industry, craft work, making things. There is still a certain amount of aggression associated with scissors; they are, after all, sharp and dangerous implements. Scissors, however, represent aggression that is controlled, contained, re-channeled into something constructive. In RPS, scissors are often perceived as a clever or crafty throw, a well-planned outflanking maneuver. As such, players are more likely to use scissors when they are confident or winning.
 You feel that? That's your brain growing.

The Official List of the Best Things in Existence

1.4.3 FTW
Here at Whoa Awesome, we are constantly on the look out for awesome things. So when I cam across this list, I knew it was a winner. So today's Awesome Thing of the Day is a list all the best things in existence. Not a small task to write that list, which is why I didn't. The fine folks at Uncyclopedia made it.

The Official List of the Best Things in Existence (http://uncyclopedia.wikia.com/wiki/The_Official_List_of_the_Best_Things_in_Existence) contains the best things since God to Eminem. And the best thing is, since it's a wiki, you can edit it all to oblivion!

A sample entry goes something like this:

Sandals

1,500 BC-47 BC
Sandals were a universal godsend, as nearly every culture on earth discovered them around the same time, all giving positive reviews. The Hebrews said “Whether wandering in the desert for forty years, running from our captors or defeating our would-be oppressors, sandals keep our feet comfortable.” The popular Roman advertisements claimed “Sandals: Jvst do it!” Even the Japanese, on the other side of the world, noted “The sandal prevents our feet from turning hard and calloused like that of a dog.”
People have way too much time on their hands.

Wow. I just realized this is the first post that doesn't have the world "awesome" in the title. Sign of the apocalypse.
