Time Waster - Crusaders of the Lost Idols

Idle games are weird doubly so if you love them and are trying to explain why they are fun to other people. But if you need a good example of a well-done idle game 'Crusaders of the Lost Idols' is a good place to start.

You start with 'Bushwhacker', who uses a big stick to smack down the innumerable bad guys you face. As you gather more gold you can add more crusaders to your repertoire who will help you kill bad guys. Eventually, you don't have to do much unless you want to.

Skewed View - (10/14/15)

On the rolling green hills of Vassalboro, there is an impressive place that makes one think of the castles of old. Though there are no knights in shining armor, other warriors train here. Bonus points if you know what it was before it became what it is today. (Photo by Katy England).

Last week's view was from the University of Main in Orono's Alfond Arena, where there is snow from the ice rink piled outside sometimes well into the greener parts of the year. (Photo by DJ Samuelian).

Tropical Maine hospitality

UTILA As the weather cools off, the leaves turn and fall sinks into winter, our idea of adventures changes with it. Often when it gets colder, people think of skiing, snowshoeing and other winter activities. Some turn their eyes to warmer climates. Joe Christopher, co-owner of Three Rivers Whitewater, does a little bit of both. The idea for this new venture came to him when he was looking for adventure himself.

It had been a lifelong dream of Christopher's to swim with whale sharks, so he and Jaime Shaw went for a trip to the Caribbean, planning to stay a couple weeks, go diving with whale sharks and enjoy a tropical island.

Question the answers

I kind of miss the days when I knew everything. Now I have to wonder how much of this world I truly understand. Literally I'm being asked to explain everything from where shoes come from to 'What is nighttime?' Some are easier than others. And things that I thought I had a solid grasp on are suddenly being put to the question.

Like, 'Why does it rain? What is rain?'

Wasting time can be all about mood. Sometimes you want to while away your hours mindlessly clicking an idle game while waiting for your coffee to heat up; other times you want to unwind after a tense day. This time waster is a zen time waster all about calm, quiet and a little weird. OK, a lot weird. But there are weirder things.

This is a video series of someone cooking - cooking real food, but using doll furniture to do it. Take a moment to think about that, but before you go away shaking your head, know that this is some calm-inducing video. It's quiet, yet has a clear progression. It is oddly satisfying to watch and is incredibly cute. And when you get right down to it, watching someone prepare deep-fried shrimp on a mini-oven is no odder than watching a stranger's cat do cute and funny things on the internet.
