Jim, that is the creepiest thing I have seen in a long time! I'll never be able to wash that away. :)

Your Personality May Be Set By 1st Grade
What were you like as a child? Chances are, your adult personality is very similar to your childhood personality.

Playing Gods: The Board Game of Divine Domination

Tornadoes. Tsunamis. Plagues. Natural disasters? Or signs of gods' wrath?

The earthly and divine realms meet in Playing Gods: The Board Game of Divine Domination. Whether wreaking disasters of biblical proportions on innocent populations or bestowing providence and goodwill,the gods have ever made sport of humans. Though possessing amazing powers, the gods are jealous.

Players compete to take over the world and make everyone on Earth worship him or her. As a god, gain converts bypromising them Afterlife, Prosperity, and Miracles. Or kill off other gods’ followers with plagues, locusts, avalanches,floods, and other natural disasters. Players can be figures from one of the world’s major religions, or they may chooseto be any god from Cthulu to Zeus, from the Cult of Oprah to The Almighty Dollar. They can even create theirown gods—or be a god! Though the theme includes religious battles, Playing Gods is really a satire with anunderlying message of peace, encouraging people to think about the tragedy of killing others just becausethey have different beliefs.

The god with the best strategy, skill, and luck shall rule the world....

For 2 to 5 players, ages 14 and up, playable in 30 to 90 minutes. LINK

Stuart Brown Says Play is More Than Fun

A pioneer in research on play, Dr. Stuart Brown says humor, games, roughhousing, flirtation and fantasy are more than just fun. Plenty of play in childhood makes for happy, smart adults -- and keeping it up can make us smarter at any age.

MITMChannel | May 05, 2010

In this video on Making Connections, Judy DeLoache of the University of Virginia has created a very clever experiment to study the emergence of Making Connections, specifically how children learn that one thing stands for or represents something else.

Much of our knowledge as adults is based on symbolic representations and the skill emerges early. Learning that a photograph of the family dog represents the real dog is the first step in learning that the squiggles on a page (writing) stands for words and that the words stand for objects or concepts. In the video, Judy DeLoache argues that theres nothing more important for the development of children than to learn about how symbols represent other things or ideas.
