It's 11/11/11, and you know what that means? NOTHING! Except a lot of 1's, so it makes it easy to remember today's date. Also, Veteran's Day, so a big thank you goes out to all the veteran's who helped to keep this country safe and free.

I'll leave you with another fun game to waste time playing, that is if Solip Skier hasn't occupied enough of your time this week. Zombie Trailer Park, is quite simple.
