Remember that Facebook contest we talked about last week? The one where we promised to give away an iPod touch? Well, we have the winner. It wasn't an easy choice, but we have one...
That's not true. It was remarkably easy. We picked somebody at random. It's probably the easiest decision we've ever made. The only way this could have been easier would be if we just lied and didn't pick anyone.
Which we also considered but didn't follow through on thanks to a fairly stern letter from our legal department.
Anyhow, out of 501 submissions, we have chosen Calvin Pellsworth as the winner. Congrats, Calvin! (Sweet name!) Enjoy your iPod touch and thank to everyone else for playing. This will not be our last ridiculous contest.

Armed with a laptop that took a direct nuke blast, he is able to control everything from playboy models to vending machines. The local dojo takes on the terrorist and in some sadistic way kick ass. The terrorist are driven out of town and the Navy pilots take over and cleanse them of their evil ways." There.... all five..... one remake.... all done." You know Hollywood's gonna make that now, right? They read messageboards, and now that movie is totally gonna happen. Great.
