Link roundup

1. Cupid paper toy. Via.

2. From an interview with Pen Ward:

What were you like as a kid?

Nerd. I would call myself a big nerd. As a child I played Diablo online and lots of games, I was a pretty awkward person. I would sit by myself in the treehouse in the school's playground and draw robots. I'd try and figure out how robots work by drawing them and then just hope cute girls would come up, look at my drawings, and think I was cool.
I'm sure this is a totally common thought for geeky boys, and it doesn't help that the cartoons they see teach them that good dating strategies include kidnapping girls with dragons, or drugging and tying them up and taking their comatose bodies on romantic dates.

3. You can impress your friends on Sunday by telling them the "G" on the Packers helmet stands for "greatness." Also, the Steeler's have a logo on only one side of their helmet because they initially thought the logo wouldn't look good and thus only put it on one side. But the look ended up being popular.
