I can't help but comment on this response from last night's The Colbert Report about Colbert's challenge that Jimmy Fallon donate $26,000 to DonorsChoose.org:

The Colbert Report Mon - Thurs 11:30pm / 10:30c
Jimmy Fallon Promises a Performance by Stephen
www.colbertnation.com
Colbert Report Full Episodes Political Humor & Satire Blog Video Archive

First of all, Steven Colbert, the line(s):

‎"If you can't donate 26,000 dollars of your best friend's money without asking him first, then what's the point of being best friends? ... I give and I give and I give ... your money to other people, and I get nothing back"

is hilarious!

But then, Fallon goes on to break down laughing during Colbert pretending to give a heartbroken BFF-breakup speech - completely ruining the skit in his trademark fashion.

And then, as if being a horrible actor and comedian who ruins everything that he is involved in weren't enough, Jimmy Fallon went on to be a selfish loser by - instead of conceding and donating his own money - asking his viewers to donate the $26,000 so he won't have to pay a cent out of his own pocket.

Donate now!

What's a matter, Jimmy, you're big, fancy television contract doesn't pay you enough to spare your own money? You couldn't even spare half of it and let your viewers donate the rest? You could have donated the first $26,000 yourself and then asked the viewers to donate at least another $26,000, so that DonorsChoose.org would get over $50,000!

Even though I doubt that you'll read this, I challenge you, Jimmy Fallon (or the studio that produces your show), to match whatever is donated by you and Stephen Colbert's fans.

And in the hope of taking as much of your money as possible, I just made a donation of $50 to Let's learn team sports with real equipment by going through the link on www.ColbertNation.com, and I encourage my readers to do the same!

You can pick another charity though if you want :D

Star Wars Squadrons shows why publishers should embrace middle-market gamesStar Wars Squadrons shows why publishers should embrace middle-market games10/30/2020 I don't think it will be controversial to say that the best part of EA's 2017 Star Wars Battlefront II was the multiplayer space dogfighting. It made me yearn for a good Star Wars flight sim in the vein of the old X-Wing and TIE Fighter PC classics. But in this age of big-budget, micro-transaction-fueled, multiplayer-focused,...

Fall of the Samurai is the second expansion for Shogun 2; the first being a “prequel” Rise of the Samurai. I skipped Rise, but when I saw the trailers for Fall, I just...
