Share on Facebook England rugby union team features Share on Messenger Sportblog Eddie Jones’ timid guests floored by Scotland’s brutal first-half flurry Share on Twitter Share via Email Share on WhatsApp Support The Guardian “Super fly guy” read the headline in the local paper on Saturday morning and boy, did Finn Russell soar. We have heard plenty about his tendency to do so too close to the sun but here at Murrayfield he was simply sublime. He smiles too much, apparently – well, the last laugh is undoubtedly his.It is a first win for Scotland against England for a decade, their first tries at Murrayfield against their rivals for 14 years and, more significantly, it was achieved in a manner to rock global rugby to its core. Eddie Jones’s England had not conceded more than 21 points in any Six Nations match before this but Scotland had racked up 22 by half-time. They have now won nine of their last 11 matches at Murrayfield and are unbeaten here in their last six in the competition, but statistics only tell so much about the style and the steel at the heart of their performance.There was trouble in the tunnel in as both sides left the pitch following their warm-ups and if ever England needed a warning that Scotland were not going to roll over – as they have done so often in this fixture of late – that was it. On the field Scotland were full of bite and snarl, and while the tunnel bust-up will inevitably take its place in Calcutta Cup folklore, we can only hope history also remembers how well the hosts performed on the field.The fact that it was Russell as conductor-in-chief, with the weight of the world on his shoulders and by showing both his class as well as the composure so many observers felt he lacked, is all the more impressive. It goes down in the annals of history as one of Scotland’s wonderful Calcutta Cup victories and owes so much to Gregor Townsend’s determination to stick to his guns. For his fly-half came up with two try assists, a delicious array of passing and some wonderful kicks from hand – it was the kind of showing that we all knew he was capable of if the stars aligned. “Finn was outstanding in November, taking on the best teams in the world. He was world class,” Townsend said. “He hasn’t had the best of starts to the Six Nations. Today he played like he did in November.” Scotland rugby union team He was ably assisted by the outstanding captain, John Barclay – who edged Hamish Watson as the pick of the Scotland back-row which served to expose just how much of a problem area the breakdown remains for England – and the finishing of Huw Jones, who now has 10 tries from 13 appearances and who, lest we forget, went to Millfield school in Somerset. He clearly enjoys playing England too – he also scored twice against them last year.Russell and Scotland were on the money from the word go. Another stinker and it was hard to imagine any future match where Russell’s temperament would not be questioned but such high stakes can bring the best out of gamblers and Scotland’s fly-half is certainly one of those.After two short passes from Russell to his forwards, the fly-half spread his wings. He floated one to the left to Sean Maitland early on and soon after rifled a flat pass into Stuart Hogg’s back – there will always be mistakes with Russell but his commitment to play continued.His kicking from hand was on the money – that certainly helped him settle – and it was his dink through for Jones’s first try, and a first for Scotland against England at Murrayfield for more than eight and a half hours. His role in Maitland’s try – Scotland’s second – was even better. His long, looping pass arced perfectly over Jonathan Joseph’s head and into Jones’s arms. It took an age to drop – not least because it looked for all the world an interception – but that is the beauty of Russell’s mercurial talents. “A lot of folk might look thinking it’s risky, and there is a certain extent of risk,” explained Russell. “But I back myself and I back the boys around me.”There is a delicious irony that it was Owen Farrell who was one of England’s main protagonists in the tunnel, for he is often held up as the example Russell should follow in terms of temperament. In this instance, perhaps Farrell would have done better to smile.Another try for Scotland, and another for Jones, had Flower of Scotland bouncing from the rafters and England heading to the sheds at half-time, undoubtedly to think again.Farrell’s try early in the second half led to a few jitters – his disallowed score near the hour mark another major scare – but Scotland were 12 points ahead with some welcome breathing space – and Sam Underhill in the sin-bin – when Russell kicked a late penalty. “I said he’d get man of the match! All joking aside, I did say he’s one of these characters who will thrive on people saying he’s not been at his best,” said Barclay. “He still played on the edge, threw the ball flat, his kicking game was brilliant. It doesn’t affect him. That’s the mark of a brilliant player.”last_img read more

House Passes NIDS Bill

first_imgStory Highlights The Prime Minister also cited Clause 41, which requires citizens to present their national identification (ID) number/card in order to receive goods or services from any public body. Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, in his remarks before the passage of the Bill, sought to allay concerns regarding the enrolment of persons and the penalties for those who do not comply. The House of Representatives on Tuesday (November 21) approved the 168 amendments made by the Senate to the National Identification and Registration Bill, which seeks to establish a reliable identification system for Jamaica.A National Identification System (NIDS) is intended to provide a comprehensive and secure structure to enable the capture and storage of identity information for all Jamaicans.Each citizen will be provided with a randomised nine-digit National Identification Number (NIN), which they will have for life.Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, in his remarks before the passage of the Bill, sought to allay concerns regarding the enrolment of persons and the penalties for those who do not comply.He noted that there is a maximum fine of $100,000, “but the judge can use their discretion, and I am expecting that the judge would. We have removed the option of imprisonment, totally removed it,” he said.The Prime Minister also cited Clause 41, which requires citizens to present their national identification (ID) number/card in order to receive goods or services from any public body.Mr. Holness argued that currently, persons have to present an ID to get any service from the Government.“But we have made sure to write in a protection in the event of health or something that is life-threatening or a natural disaster or a national emergency. Then, the system of presenting a national identification card would be suspended. So, we are not here trying to deprive the citizens of Jamaica of their rights,” he pointed out.“We cannot continue to look at the Jamaican State as the enemy of the people. I am not the enemy of the people, and it is time that we reject that idea. Yes, there must be strong voices to ensure that Government does not go astray, but we cannot start on the assumption that when we stand here to pass legislation we are passing legislation to deprive people of rights,” the Prime Minister added.The layered roll-out and management of the NIDS will be handled by a new agency, the National Identification and Registration Authority (NIRA), which will replace the Registrar General’s Department (RGD) and provide more enhanced services.Roll-out of NIDS is slated to begin with a pilot project in January 2019, focusing on civil servants. The House of Representatives on Tuesday (November 21) approved the 168 amendments made by the Senate to the National Identification and Registration Bill, which seeks to establish a reliable identification system for Jamaica.last_img read more

Mitsubishi Motors investigated over false mileage data

Mitsubishi Motors investigated over false mileage data Mitsubishi Motors President Tetsuro Aikawa speaks during a press conference in Tokyo, Wednesday, April 20, 2016.

Mitsubishi was reporting mileage of up to 30.4 kilometres per litre (71.5 miles per gallon).The inaccurate tests by the Tokyo-based automaker involved 157,000 of its own-brand eK wagon and eK Space light passenger cars, and 468,000 Dayz and Dayz Roox vehicles produced for Nissan Motor Co.All are so-called “minicars” with tiny engines whose main attraction is generally great mileage.

Of the criticism, she said: “Aside from family dramas, this is the toughest thing I’ve had to endure. Simon Mayo and Jo Whiley Jo Whiley, the Radio 2 broadcaster, has spoken of the “savage” criticism of her drivetime show, admitting it left her tearful and struggling to leave her home.Whiley, who became Simon Mayo’s co-host on the popular afternoon show in May before the partnership was disbanded in October, said she had been subjected to “hurtful, insulting” resistance from a “very vocal bunch of people”.Saying the relentless criticism had “chipped away” at her, she added: “Aside from family dramas, this is the toughest thing I’ve had to endure.”Whiley returns to Radio 2 with a new evening show on Monday night at 7pm, in a new schedule for the station which includes Zoe Ball as the first female host of the breakfast show and Sara Cox on drivetime.In October, the BBC announced the schedule change as Mayo left Radio 2, following significant criticism of the broadcasters’ on-air partnership.In an interview with the Mail on Sunday’s Event magazine, Whiley said she had not been able to “find her voice” on the show, explaining: “I was trying to pretend to be a drivetime DJ when I should have just been myself.” “There was this wall of resistance to me from a very vocal bunch of people.“It was hurtful, insulting. It made me look at who I am not just as a broadcaster but as a person. It made me reassess everything.“It’s too easy to hate these days, to forget there’s someone just doing their thing, on the receiving end of such hostility.”She added: “And it was relentless, every hour of every day. No matter how tough and resilient you are, that chips away at you.“I was tearful quite a lot of the time. Some days it was hard to walk out of my front door, let alone present a radio show.”Whiley told Event: “Invariably the criticism was from women. It was the most disappointing thing in the world.”The driveshow partnership of Whiley and Mayo split in October, after a barrage of complaints from listeners. Telegraph critic Charlotte Runcie called the show “one long cringe, so palpable was the discomfort of the two hosts”Mayo left Radio 2, due to announce a new show later this month, while Whiley took on an evening music programme she described as a “dream show”.At the time, Mayo tweeted his support for his co-host, saying:  ‘When the show was “reconfigured” she was my first and only choice.

Haber and Geobase Metals JV in Zimbabwe to recover green gold and

first_imgHaber has entered into a joint venture with GeoBASE Metals, a private Zimbabwean based minerals company that controls concessions containing gold, PGMs, nickel and other minerals located in Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana.  The JV plans to develop its concessions and implement the Strategic Abatement of Mercury and Poverty (STAMP) in Zimbabwe using green technology. Haber has proprietary technologies in the separations sciences and environmentally friendly processing of gold bearing ores. Under the terms of the agreement, the JV will form a Zimbabwean company, Haber GeoBASE Africa Minerals Company (HG). Haber will grant to HG a non-exclusive, environmentally friendly, Haber Gold Process Four (HGP4) license and non-exclusive implementation and technology license for the STAMP program covering the African continent excluding Ghana and Tanzania.  In exchange, GeoBase will transfer title to HG on all its concessions located in Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana which includes hard rock and alluvial gold properties.Haber will manage the STAMP program, and have exclusive control of all processing facilities required for minerals recovery. GeoBase will be responsible for raising the funding necessary for each project. HG is responsible for exploration, mining and obtaining additional mineral claims, including diamond and molybdenum concessions, if and when, the appropriate opportunities arise.The STAMP program was developed to help eliminate the use of mercury by small-scale miners. It is designed to take advantage of the superior efficiencies, in the high 90% range, using the environmentally friendly HGP4 compared to the much lower efficiencies (some 35 to 65%) using mercury. The differential allows HG to pay mercury users more for their gold concentrate than they would receive by using mercury to extract the gold and dissuades them from using mercury in the future.  STAMP produces ‘green’ gold and raises the standard of living of the workers and adds significant jobs and economic stimulus to the economy while achieving high returns for HG.Zimbabwe is seeking projects which can provide increased government revenues, employment, rural upliftment and significant stimulus to the economy. It also seeks a solution to illegal artisanal poachers, methods to eliminate the use of mercury and control of the illegal production and sale of gold.  STAMP addresses all of these issues positively and directly.  HG has made STAMP presentations to Zimbabwean government officials which received strong support from all parties.  Additionally, there was an expressed interest in HGP4’s ability to treat and process sulfide ores on large scale mining operations which will be addressed in the future.   Albert B. Conti, CEO of Haber stated, “We are pleased to enter into this JV with GeoBase,  which is comprised of experienced banking, business leaders, geologists, miners and management personnel.  Funding is essential to our objectives and we are delighted that Gibson Nyathi, CEO of GeoBASE having served as deputy CEO with the ZIM Banking Corp and with extensive experience in international and corporate banking will be responsible for securing the necessary funding for STAMP and other programs.  HG has acquired a broad and impressive number of concessions from GeoBASE which, we believe, in itself will open up additional business alliances with major mining companies interested in specific mineral concessions under our control.  Haber shareholders have a 50% interest in the valuations of these assets”. Conti, continues, “There is near unanimity among informed mining circles globally that Zimbabwe is the unsung, unheralded and virtually unrivalled home of some of the largest base and precious metal deposits in Africa, waiting to be tapped once the country’s economic and political policy direction have crystallised and placed on a consistent and predictable footing. Zimbabwe represents a unique opportunity; it’s a country that has essentially been dormant in mining for the last three decades.  Accordingly, going forward, HG considers itself strategically positioned to transform itself into a serious mining company by taking advantage of several opportunities for increasing the company’s mineral assets base and engage in multiple mining projects producing substantial revenues.  We expect preliminary ground operations in Zimbabwe on one of HG’s gold concessions and/or the STAMP program to begin, on or before, mid 2010.  However, no matter how optimistic management may be, there are no guarantees that funding will be secured, that STAMP or any other mining project will be implemented or that additional concessions will be acquired as ant! icipated .”Zimbabwe’s Ministry of Economic Planning and Investment Promotion has stated government’s approval of STAMP and, while acknowledging that the government does not have the necessary funding at this time, they are willing to provide assistance in the context of government’s regulatory framework in order to facilitate efforts by HG to raise $30 million required to implement STAMP from commercial market sources.With the support and promotional assistance of the Zimbabwean government, HG will be seeking financing from private lending institutions, investors and other funding sources to implement the STAMP program which is projected to employ over 13,000 Zimbabweans when fully operational.Gibson Nyathi, President and CEO of GeoBase, said:  “We are extremely pleased to be Haber’s partner in promoting the STAMP program and HGP4 process in Africa and are impressed with the technical capabilities that Haber brings to the mining sector.  Its ability to deal with sulfide ores and their cost effective HGP4 process allows us to explore every gold project large and small with a great degree of confidence.  Our two companies have entered into a close working relationship and I want to express GeoBASE’s commitment to meet the JV agreements funding mandate and to continue aggressively acquiring the best minerals concessions that can be assembled going forward.  Also we definitively and wholeheartedly share Haber’s commitment to social upliftment and respect of the environment.”The Gwanda gold concessions, located about 150 km southwest of Bulawayo, comprise 38 claims, totalling 380 ha in size, and in the vicinity of an area that already hosts two medium-sized operating gold mines. The Gwanda Greenstone Belt, stretching for some 60 km west to east, is reputedly one of Zimbabwe’s highly prospective gold areas. The Filabusi gold concessions, located approximately 65 km southwest of Bulawayo, comprise 20 claims, totalling 200 ha in size. GeoBASE acquired the mine in 2003. This mine has six separate shafts interconnected underground, with one section of the mine having four underground levels.Gwanda and Filabusi Districts, approximately 75 km apart, have some of the highest concentrations of small-scale gold miners in Zimbabwe, all attracted by a twin combination of the increasing gold price and the need work the country’s high unemployment. Consequently, these districts constitute strong candidates for Regional Processing Centers envisaged under the STAMP Program.last_img read more

Dublin legend OLeary urges Diarmuid Connolly to cut petulance out of his

Tap the button below on your phone to follow us! Kearns vows that Tipperary will only get better following stunning Croke Park successWould an all-Ulster team entering the Liam MacCarthy Cup work? The impact he (Gavin) expected didn’t happen. Come the championship, you’re looking for who’s going to get the key scores. Bernard Brogan has been quiet enough, Paul Flynn has been quiet enough, Diarmuid was going well until a bit of petulance got him sent off.“That needs to be managed. Eric Lowndes played well, the backline is playing well, Philly McMahon (and) Darren Daly had a super game. Ciaran Reddin’s come in from nowhere out of the U21s and had a really good first half in particular. So there are players coming in.“He’ll have to make calls around some of the fellas that have been there for a couple of years, without a doubt, but that’s life. The juggernaut rolls on.” DUBLIN FOOTBALL LEGEND John O’Leary has urged Diarmuid Connolly to cut moments of ‘petulance’ from his game.Connolly’s black card against Kerry in yesterday’s Allianz League final defeat was the latest moment of disciplinary woe for the Dublin superstar.The St Vincent’s man was also black-carded against Monaghan in the group stages of the League campaign, and suffered a similar fate on club duty against Palatine last November.Connolly was also sent off against Donegal in last year’s All-Ireland SFC quarter-final, and was red-carded in the 2015 semi-final draw with Mayo, before being cleared to play in the replay at the 11th hour by the independent Disputes Resolution Authority (DRA).Renowned as a marked man, Connolly was also dismissed in the 2013 Dublin SFC final replay against Ballymun Kickhams, and he received a red card in Dublin’s 2011 All-Ireland semi-final victory over Donegal.Former Dublin goalkeeper O’Leary, speaking to the RTÉ GAA podcast, says that Connolly needs to improve his disciplinary record “to become a great player.”O’Leary said: “I’m not going to preach to him but he needs to become a great player by ensuring he doesn’t fall into those traps that opposition set for you, a pull of a jersey, little niggle and a bit of a push and a shove. Source: James Crombie/INPHO“The really, really good players don’t react to that. They react by becoming even better footballers and putting the ball over the bar and in the back of the net.“Then, the fella that’s been aggravating you feels even worse but he’s risen to that niggle a couple of times, to his own personal cost and a couple of times to the team’s cost.“So he’s got to grow more mature when it happens, and learn from it. He’s still a young man but he’s a lot of experience on the pitch and you’d like to think he’d have it out of his system by now. He has to lose that trait to become a really great player.”Former Dublin goalkeeper O’Leary acknowledged that Connolly (29) is often singled out for special attention from opposing teams.center_img Dublin legend O’Leary urges Diarmuid Connolly to cut ‘petulance’ out of his game “He has to lose that trait to become a really great player.” Dublin goalkeeping legend John O’Leary. Source: Andrew Paton/INPHOBut he added: “You put your heart on your sleeve and you put yourself out there for that exposure.“Plenty of really good footballers have had to live with that, whether it was the ‘Gooch’ (Colm Cooper), Peter Canavan, Mikey Sheehy. Lots of players over lots of decades will be the target because they’re that good. It’s a statement in itself, that they feel he’s such a danger.“He just has to live with it and put up with it. He’s done it really well many a time but a couple of times, the screen falls back and the shade drops and he reacts and gets caught.“But he’s a phenomenal footballer, no doubt.”And O’Leary believes that manager Jim Gavin has some big selection calls to make as Dublin prepare to defend their Leinster and All-Ireland titles.

If you look at Dublin’s (League) run, they’ve been almost beaten a couple of times.“The bench didn’t work as well as it has in the past, with the exception of Paul Mannion.

The Dankest Memes of Star Wars Battlefront II Loot Boxes

first_imgStay on target EA Is Taking Another Crack at Single-Player Star Wars, Battlefront II6 Awesome Star Wars Video Games in Humble Bundle’s Huge May the 4th Sale Star Wars Battlefront II should’ve been a slam dunk. It’s a huge shooter (the biggest genre in gaming) based on Star Wars (the biggest #brand in the galaxy). Yeah the first game got flack for being too rushed and light on content, but it still sold extremely well and was praised for its visuals. Battlefront II looks even better and had some extra years to flesh itself out.And yet, despite a pretty decent single-player mode, the conversation surrounding Star Wars Battlefront II on the eve of its launch has entirely revolved around its poisonous multiplayer microtransactions. This otherwise incredible year in gaming has seen plenty of $60 AAA games ruin themselves with gross mobile free-to-play mechanics to squeeze out some extra cash. Shadow of War, Assassin’s Creed Origins, Call of Duty WWII. Even when the base game is pretty good, the inherently unethical loot boxes leave a bad taste in the mouth.But cramming loot boxes in a Star Wars game already destined to sell millions feels especially greedy, and Battlefront II’s use of loot boxes is especially slimy. If you don’t spend money (beyond your initial $60) you’re forced to go through a ton of waiting and grinding for in-game currency just to unlock famous faces like Darth Vader. And those that do pay can unlock perks that give them a definitive edge in battle, the dreaded “pay to win” model.Fortunately, folks haven’t been quiet about their dissatisfaction with Battlefront II’s progression design. A few days ago, right before the game’s launch, EA slashed the prices for various unlocks, theoretically making it easier to unlock content and maintain your sense of “skill and accomplishment.” And now, EA has temporarily removed microtransactions from the game entirely, apparently after an angry phone call from Disney over the controversy.Star Wars Battlefront II’s microtransactions will return. We’ve already talked about how we think EA’s “apology” is pretty disingenuous. But until then, celebrate your victory over the Empire of added costs with the dankest memes the internet has created mocking Star Wars Battlefront II’s loot boxes.View as: One Page Slides1/81. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.

TShirt Tuesday The Best God Of War Shirts

first_imgStay on target T-Shirt Tuesday: The Best Monster Hunter ShirtsT-Shirt Tuesday: The Best Gundam Shirts Back in the days of geek prehistory, a T-shirt was a signal to the world around you that you cared about your nerdy pursuits enough to fly them like a flag. Companies like Graphitti Designs contracted with movie studios and comics publishers to create shirts with our favorite characters and sold them up on the walls of comic book stores and through mail-order.The computer revolution has enabled the T-shirt world to become something totally new – affordable production and distribution means that shirts can be printed in small quantities and sold anywhere in the world. Starting with Threadless, dozens of companies popped up letting artists and designers show their stuff. It’s a better time than ever to be a geek fashionista, and if you’re looking to expand your wardrobe we’re going to help you out every week… on T-Shirt Tuesday.This week: If you’re as deep into God of War as we are, these Kratos-themed shirts will let you dress the part.War God ForeverIt’s wild to think that the God of War franchise is thirteen years old – Kratos has a kid almost the same age in the new game. This shirt from designer Olipop commemorates the history with a cartoonish version of the hero’s skull complete with trademark red paint stripe, surrounded by his trademark Blades of Chaos. Although we feel bad that you can’t use those chained knives in the new game, Kratos’s axe is more than a solid replacement.$20, buy it here.G.O.W.We like the smeary, rough-edged illustration technique used by FernyDesigns on this shirt, which uses just two colors to evoke the grim visage of Kratos as he sets out on another quest of brutal$20, buy it here.War And RageReplacing the hero of God of War‘s trademark weapons was a bold choice, but the new Leviathan Axe in the latest game is a fine substitute. It’s a beast at close range, and you can also chuck it with deadly accuracy to lodge in a foe’s skull until it’s recalled. This design by Perroni91 does a great job of incorporating the axe into Kratos’s howling face of agony and rage. Dude really needs to chill and watch some Nailed It on Netflix or something.$20, buy it here.Ghost Of SpartaYou can put Kratos’s trademark facial hair and red paint on just about anyone and it’ll work, but we have to give artist adho1982 credit for really going above and beyond with this design. Casting Boo, the shy ghost from the Super Mario series, as a vengeance-crazed warrior of carnage might be a stretch, but replacing the Blades of Chaos with a pair of Chain Chomps is too funny a visual pun to resist. Great cartoony stylization at play here.$20, buy it here.Clash Of The Old GodsKratos has already hacked his way through the Roman and Norse pantheons, so what gods does he have left to kill? Artist Fuacka postulates a final showdown with the great beings that lurk in the darkness past the end of the universe, the Lovecraftian Elder Gods themselves. What hope does one angry dude with some sharp implements hope to slash away the many tentacles of Cthulu? If there’s one thing we’ve learned, it’s that gamers can do anything at the expense of their sanity.$20, buy it here.Ukiyo-e of WarWe’re living in a truly global culture, where inspiration can come from just about anywhere. Hence this shirt from artist philtomato, which takes the Greek protagonist of an American video game who battles in ancient Scandinavia and interprets him in a classical Japanese art style. This might seem like gilding the lily, but the artist’s delicate line and great composition bring it all together nicely.$20, buy it here.Kratos FailEveryday activities get significantly more difficult when you’re a blood-crazed berserker with a pair of chained knives attached to your wrists. Take this T-shirt by artNpop, which depicts Kratos just trying to shave down his sideburns only to have a little accident. It’s going to take more than a few squares of toilet paper to clean up the blood from this one, but we think the big guy can handle it.$20, buy it here.Leviathan AxeIf you want a better look at Kratos’s new weapon, this shirt by designbystasia should hit the spot. The Leviathan Axe is a beefy one-handed hatchet that’s imbued with a variety of abilities that our hero can tap into for total carnage. We dig the clean line style on display here, with a stylized Norse serpent coiling around the weapon’s handle and blade.$20, buy it here.The GodslayerThe new God of War game sees Kratos moving on to slaughtering the Norse pantheon because he’s already killed all of the Greek / Roman gods. But what happens when our dude gets bored murdering his way through ancient mythology? GranJefe theorizes that he might set his sights on some more modern myths, including Galactus, Superman, and Hellboy. We’d pay some pretty serious money to see those fights, even if they didn’t end up quite like this.$20, buy it here.One Punch KratosSaitama, the protagonist of wildly popular manga One Punch Man, wouldn’t seem to have a lot in common with the star of God of War. He’s so unflappable that it’s ridiculous, while Kratos loses his mind over just about anything. Artist PlatinumBastard meets in the middle with this mash-up shirt. Ok?$20, buy it here.Vaper KratosWe can picture Kratos doing all sorts of things, but puffing on an e-cigarette isn’t something we had on our list. But, because this is the Internet, someone has made a pretty proficient illustration of him doing just that and put it on a T-shirt for you to buy. The artist of this one is Elrokk86, and if you look at their store they seem to be pretty interested in taking pop culture characters and covering them with hipster tattoos, because why not?$20, buy it here.center_img Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more
