so i was reading the front page of a webcomic i keep up with and got tuned in to thespeedgamers.com and thought it was really awesome. Its a group of people who steam marathons of video games while raising money for charities. They get nothing out of it, actually they lose money setting it all up, equipment, games, lodging, food, and not being at work.

I just thought it was a really unique mode of philanthropy and more interesting than most, especially to us gamers. They're currently doing the Final Fantasy series if you guys get bored and want to check it out.

they did this weird thing earlier for breaking 9000 in donations. then they decided for every 1k past that before 8pm central that one extra person would have to do it. they got like 5k in about 2 hours cause everyone wanted to see it lol. they took vegemite whatever the fuck that is and made milkshakes with it and drank it. sounds disgusting to me so i lol'd watching it.

I think Britt (the guy who did the neopolitan) did end up seeing it a second time, lol

they had another guy on earlier today taking shots of vegemite at some interval of money, i didn't get to see much of it cause i've been busy cleaning house and getting job apps since I got up.

lawl, Phil(and Hat) did 11 spoons of it. And then a little later some other guy took 4 more, 1 spoon every time someone donated $100. Last I heard they were going to make a peanut butter and jelly and vegemite sandwich.

thats about where i was watching phil.

now they're doing this Horde vs Alliance to see who donates more rofl. they're gonna tally up how many people leave a comment for one side or the other with their donation. the stuff they run while doing their marathon is pretty entertaining I must say.

About time. He was playing it at 7:30 am my time when I went to bed yesterday, then tonight at like 10:30 when I last checked he was still wiping to the last boss. I felt bad for the guy having no sleep for some ridiculous amount of time.
