Exploding Kittens Card Game Raises 2 million on Kickstarter

Exploding-Kittens1

(PCM) You want to know the best part? Not only did the Exploding Kittens card game raise 2 million dollars via Kickstarter, but they did it in only one day!  It is unbelievable and the donations are still continuing.

The idea for the Exploding Kittens game comes from Michael Inman, who also happens to be the creator of the popular comic site, The Oatmeal. When Inman launched the Kickstarter campaign for Exploding Kittens, he never dreamed it would catch on in such as way. The campaign reached it’s initial goal for $10,000 in just a few minutes of being live.

Currently, Exploding Kittens has racked up over $2 million in donations and the numbers continue to climb. In fact the Kickstarter campaign does not even end until midnight on February 19, so we can only begin to imagine what the donation amount will look like by that point.

According to Mashable.com, “In the vein of Russian roulette, players go around in a circle, drawing cards from a deck, until one of them picks up an exploding kitten. That player immediately “explodes” and loses..”Players can strategically use other cards they’ve picked up to negate an exploding kitten, or make it more likely for other players to pick one up. All of the cards feature Inman’s signature Oatmeal-style drawings, and many include drawings from his past comics.”

The game sounds a little disturbing, but then again we are a society that truly enjoys a good round of “Cards Against Humanity” as well so …

WWE’s Triple H Breaks Character To Console A Crying Young Fan Ringside

Triple-H1

(PCM) It is incredibly rare that fans ever get the chance to witness any of their favorite WWE wrestlers break character, especially in the middle of a match, when that wrestler happens to be one of the biggest heels in the current story-line.

That is why it was shocking when fans in attendance for a recent WWE RAW show says Triple H completely break character and console a young fan who he saw sobbing in the front row.  As the current story line goes, 13-time World Champion Triple H is currently the bad boy leader and evil COO of an organization called The Authority.

During the evenings main event which was a handicap match between John Cena, Shawn Rollin, Kane and The Big Show, Triple H noticed the young fan in tears and shockingly completely broke character and leaned over the barrier, patted the boy on the head and apologized. The moment was captured by many fans and was immediately posted on various social media channels.

It was also revealed that Triple H’s wife in real life and on RAW, Stephanie McMahon also broke character to speak to the young boy as well.

Photos show Triple H smiling at the boy and consoling him in hopes of cheering him up. Later that evening, after the taping of RAW, security was seen escorting the young boy and his father toward the backstage area where we are sure he got to meet many of his favorite WWE superstars.

We certainly have a ton of respect for the way that Triple H handled the situation and it was wonderful that he was able to share such a touching and memorable moment with a young fan, who will now surely become a fan for life.

The Dover State Police department said that they came across the video while reviewing police cruiser dash cam footage and discovered the footage of Officer Jeff Davis to be quite amusing.

Officer Davis has been with the Delaware State Police for 19 years and watching him start jamming out to the tune (hand gestures and all) was just too good not to share.

The Dover State Police said that they are planning a new web series called “Dash Cam Confessionals”.  While the rest of the video was staged a spokesperson for the Dover State Police said it was done in fun and only took about 15 minutes in total to film.

The video has been viewed over 14 million times and we think Officer Davis is hoping for a duet!
