Charity marathons for people who do not actually run


Categories: Personal GeekStuff

So, I’ve signed up for one of those charity drive marathon things. The gimmick is, instead of running 26 miles, we’re playing video games for 24 hours.

Yeah, it’s silly. But it’s a fun kind of silly, and I am told that in general kids like it when they get medical care. … Well. More precisely, adults like it when they got medical care as kids. Kids do not always like it at the time.

Anyway, if you are sitting around thinking “gosh, I just wish I could find a charity to throw money at”, I sorta like this one, and it’s an excuse to play video games, which of course I desperately need. Without this kind of justification, it’s entirely possible that I’d barely play video games for 13-14 hours this Saturday.
