When I was a kid I wanted to grow up to be an astronaut.  For reasons my therapist will not let me get into, I did not become an astronaut.  Well, real world be damned - I am now living in the Little Space Heroes virtual world where I am more than an astronaut, I click to continue...

Nascar Unleashed Video Game

I am a 40 something year old Dad, which should mean I know my way around a car and spend my weekends watching Nascar.   Probably due to a genetic mutation caused by eating excessive amounts of Pop Rocks as a kid, I know very little about car mechanics and still believe Lightning McQueen is the click to continue...

If there is one thing I know, it is this - you really can't trust a wealthy recluse.   Give a wealthy recluse a private island and now you have a recipe for disaster.  Of course the only wealthy recluse who owns a private island that I have met (virtually) is Winston Malgrave from the Nintendo click to continue...
