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

The un-fulfilled promise of Civilization VI's announcement trailerThe un-fulfilled promise of Civilization VI's announcement trailer03/04/2022 The announcement trailer for Sid Meier's Civilization VI made me very excited. Not just because there was a new iteration of my favorite PC game franchise, but also because the message of the trailer made me excited for the possibility that Civilization VI would take a much more humanist and globalist approach to its gameplay...

Axis Football 18 is the most feature-complete indie football game on consolesAxis Football 18 is the most feature-complete indie football game on consoles12/19/2018 This is the one indie football game that I was most looking forward to. Unfortunately, it is also the one that ended up being delayed almost to the point of irrelevancy -- at least on consoles. The game did see a PC release on Steam in September, but the console versions had to wait until much longer. The XBox One release didn't...
