It’s 10:21 on Sunday night. As usual, I’ve screwed around on the internet instead of writing a post. The good news is, though, that I’ve been playing with something pretty cool, a game that’s both educational and fun, for about 15 minutes anyway. It’s called Budget Hero and it calls for you to balance the U.S. federal budget. Or, if you so choose, you can not balance the budget and lead us all to financial doom. It’s your call really.

Although the game isn’t quite as complex as I’d like, it’s still a pretty cool look at what needs to be cut to avoid both a near term and long term budget crisis. So spend some time with it and see how good your deficit busting skills are, and I’ll be back with a real post tomorrow. Or the next day. Or whenever I have nothing better to do.

I tried for at least a minute and a half to get the damn thing to embed, but it turns out I’m a moron. So go here to play it.


Tell everyone, yo!
