Colin Furze is just like any of us: he’s a guy, a dad, a hoodlum, and oh – he also holds three Guinness World Records, one for starting the largest bonfire. Furze hopes to extend his records to four after building what he hopes is the world’s fastest pram (that’s a stroller to us yanks).
Thirty-three year old English dad Furze built the stroller – and the sucker certainly doesn’t stroll; watch the video after the jumperooski. Also, for bonus points, Furze took some time to talk to 8BitDad about his creation, which although he didn’t say was more important to him than the Guinness record, we’re going to guess was.
Chad Sapieha wants his daughter to see some positive female role models in the video game universe.
Since we’re professionals at the discourse on gender, we can all agree that the representation and design of female video game characters since the industry started has been – well, unreal. Helpless princesses and schoolgirly fighters are the norm, and until recently, the only female a gal could look up to in the video game world was Metroid‘s Samus Aran (though fans may mention the weird strip-tease endings).
Sapieha notes that he didn’t give much thought to female video game characters until his daughter was born. Now that he’s having conversations about gaming with his daughter, he made a list of ten female game characters that he’s not ashamed to show his daughter.
