Level up!

Now is the time of year when many law students start feeling bad about themselves, whether it be due to overwork, underachievement, infighting, or any number of other reasons. As a partial remedy, I'm providing a link to Ulillillia, who has many things to teach us all.

-Learn a simple mathematical equation to express whether you like things or not. According to his scale, the Best Thing Ever is music from Final Fantasy 6 (which he listened to for 52 1/4 consecutive days), and the Worst Thing Ever was a person who made fun of him (although TV ads with whistling in them come close).

-Defensive and evasion capabilities of various insects.

-Read about the time he imagined he kicked a 95 yard field goal.

-Discover how many times he's dreamt about people standing in mud.

-How good or bad a page of text is, scored entirely on how many times it uses the dread words "person" or "people.

-The fascinating story of a family that went camping and engaged in very precise measurements of everything that happened.

-Dozens of ways to kill Miles "Tails" Prower in Sonic 3 and Knuckles.

-The reason why he would intentionally take damage in Metroid.

-The First Law: All matter has Hit Points. Without Hit Points, nothing exists.

If you, like Uli, have an obsession with numbers, but are less afraid of the naughty side of life, you may want to get your hands on F.A.T.A.L., "the most difficult, detailed, realistic and historically/mythically accurate role-playing game available," in which every character has to roll an anal circumference rating, in which female characters have an intelligence penalty, in which fully-functional hermaphrodites are as common as extra nipples, in which infants can fill out an A-cup bra, and in which rape is a less severe crime than shoplifting. Check out this review for more highlights.
