Fight over Pokemon cards leads to something positive

Remember the fad years of Pokemon and all that came with it, good and bad? Remember when people used to fight over valuable cards? Well, it looks like something good may have come out of it after all.

The Daily Mail tells the tale of how UK Olympic judo hopeful Ashley McKenzie took up the sport. Long story short: as a youth, he tried to get a Charizard card back from a kid who stole it from him. The kid defeats him with a judo throw. Impressed, McKenzie does some research on the Internet, takes up judo, and the rest is history. I wish him the best of luck.

Wonder if he ever got another Charizard card?

The Pokemon Global Link is back up!

The Pokemon Global Link is back up, and it looks better than ever! I especially like the "Earth-from-space" look of the main page. The Cool Hole is now open and has been renamed the Icy Cave. Many Ground- and Ice-type Pokemon can be found there, including Sneasel, Onix, Snorunt, and Diglett. For those of you lucky enough to have Pokemon Black or White 2, you can actully catch Unova Pokemon in the Icy Cave, including Drilbur and Druddigon. Can't wait for that!

The Dream Catalogue has been updated with new furniture (mostly bath-related items), two new houses (a Treehouse and a Tropical Hut), and more Pokemon Dolls than a teenager's bedroom. Start growing those berries!

Quote of the Whenever: Amen, brother

Seen on a bumper sticker during my drive to work a few weeks ago:
