Rip Off Wednesday #16: PUFG

On Rip-Off Wednesdays, we steal someone else's idea and translate it into an ipost.

Today we will be ripping off Spencer Green's frighteningly thorough PUFG (Parallel Universe Film Guide), which is itself a twisted rip-off of imdb.

1. Choose a movie.
2. Change the title to cleverly disguise your movie and upost it along with its year of release.
3. Write a small blurb about the film.

BONUS: Make up actors names, film trivia, and/or notable quotes

Rip-Off Wednesday #15: Show and Tell

On Rip-Off Wednesdays, we steal someone else's idea and translate it into an ipost.

Today we will be ripping off aggregators of cool things such as or just about any tumblr site out there.

upost links to things you like, that interest you, or that you just want to share. Tell us why too.

NOTE ABOUT LINKS: Intense Debate (the commenting system ipost | upost uses) is notoriously persnickety about links. We suggest posting the full link without any punctuation marks near it. No periods, colons, semi-colons, parentheses, etc. connected to the link or it won't work.

Ukraine is game to you?

By special request, today we will be playing a geography game. When you're done, upost your "traveler IQ" and either brag about being a geography nerd or be a bully and make fun of the geography nerds.

Find the quiz here:

Thanks to Hannah for the ipost.

Name That Thing

It's time to play your favorite game: Name That Thing. Even though it's your favorite, you might not know how to play. Here are the rules:

1. Pick a thing (it can be ANYTHING: a person, place, idea, moment, instance, event, hypothetical situation, nonsensical blather, etc.). The more creative and specific it is, the better.
2. Post a comment that says, "Name that thing."
3. Other people will try to guess your thing by responding to your comment.
4. After there have been at least 3 guesses, the person who said "Name that thing" gets to choose the winner. They will reveal what the "thing" was and explain why the winner was the closest to guessing correctly. This is called the "Judgment".
