Study hard, win video games!

There is no such thing as useless knowledge.

Last night I found myself downloading two free games: Half-Life 2 and H-L 2, Episode 1. I got them by writing a haiku:

“Jolly Roger” by johnseeking

buy the game again
black box isn’t coming out
corporate piracy

Yeah, it’s not that good. But apparently, not enough people at the forum where I posted it either cared to win the prize, OR not enough people felt like they knew enough about haiku to write one. Good lord… it’s haiku, for pete’s sake. Anybody can do it.

I once had a haiku duel with a student. We filled an entire whiteboard with smack-talk in the form of haiku. I claimed victory, because the lad finally added one too many syllables in his last entry.

Knowledge IS power, kids. And by “power,” I mean it can net you lots of swag.

Woo-hoo.

(I once found a web page filled with haiku about CornNuts, no lie. Amazing. Can’t find it now, though. Sad day.)
