Obviously this video is a metaphor for every addiction, but it does kind of explain why Democrats have the black vote locked up.

Mmmm… free stuff… delicious, ambition-crippling free stuff…

[High Praise! to Pixactly via Neatorama]

Pixactly

Pixactly is both a game and a quiz that tests your knowledge of graphic space in pixels. You are challenged to draw a box of specified pixel size, both horizontally and vertically. The game keeps track of how many pixels you are off over five attempts.

I got 205, but I cut 150×110 and 75×75 images every day in my day job.

Let me know how you do.
