Top 10 – Dangerous Elderly Characters

GeekOut Top 10s

Rule #1: Do not act incautiously when confronted by bald, wrinkly, smiling men.

This rule applies to all elderly people who smile knowingly in the face of danger. It’s always worth listening to walking sticks to check for hidden swords, or observe hairpins for potential weaponization. Are those slippers for shambling slowly to the bathroom, or for whupping young whipper snappers into shape? Do they still have their own teeth? Either way it’s bad news.

Join us as we take register of the residents of this old folks dojo and secret underground retirement facility. This is our Top 10 Dangerous Elderly Characters.

Regardless how these characters got their patches, they deserved to make the list.

But let’s be frank here. A box is not just a solid mass that’s in the shape of a cube (Sorry Companion Cube). No, a box must be able to have things inside of it in some capacity. That changes our scope from the get go.

Ah, we can’t contain ourselves any more. This list cannot be held any longer, it’s time for this weeks Top 10!

Top 10 Memorable sounds in Games

Top10 Banner

I once met a man who seemed possessed of an odd kind of wisdom. When I asked him what path I should take through life, the path of honesty, or the path of weasely underhanded backstabbing that led all the way to Successville, he turned to me and said: “Listen mate…”

He said a bunch of other things about restraining orders, but when I did listen, I found that the world was filled with ambient noises I had never heard before. SOUND advice indeed.
