  1. 10 Father’s Day Cards For Your Favorite Video Game Dads

    Or least-favorite, depending on your threshold for bad parenting.

    I got the gaming bug from my dad, who used to sit three-year-old me on his lap while he played Myst and Doom - which, in hindsight, may not have been the best plan, but hey.

    Meiolania damelipi belongs to a genus of turtles who were thought to have died out 50,000 years ago, but recent discoveries have shown as existing alongside humankind.
