I’ve been interning at a radio station here in the UK (Heart FM, incase anyone knows of it). On the Kent local breakfast show, we ran a challenge for our breakfast show presenters called the 2012 Challenge. It meant they had to find somebody to represent all the countries in the olympics and get a photograph with them.
thats 204 countries. we completed today with 138. Not bad, considering some of the countries are TINY, and not many of the locals are reachable, or live in the UK.
I hoped I’d be able to reach out to some nerdfighters to help me out, which, naturally, you stepped up and did so.
Unfortunately the list I put online wasn’t updated and so every country people go back to me with, we already had (so if i didn’t get back to you, sorry about that - I’ve been hella busy and only contacted the people I needed at the time!)
In the process of me taking on this project as my baby while i spent my time at Heart FM, I met some athletes from different countries. This is a photograph of me with the Judo entry for papau new guinea - his track suit is the best thing i’ve ever seen. The handsome chap on my right pretending to be James is my other half, who was loving the whole thing :)
so thank you so much for your help everybody. once again, nerdfighteria did me proud and as I’m sure some of you nerds would love to look into this more, here’s the link for the website so you can see all the photos.
If anyone on here lives in Kent, or whitstable to be precise, all of the photos will be in a gallery for a few weeks starting next week (we think). I’ll be around for the opening. Contact me if you want to come along.

GET INVOLVED. STOP AT NOTHING. THE WORLD MUST KNOW.
Let’s make JOSEPH KONY Famous!!
Who is JOSEPH KONY?
He is THE WORST LIVING CRIMINAL. He abducts children and makes them use guns to kill their own parents. He takes girls and forces them to be sex slaves. He calls his abducted children the Lord’s Resistance Army, AKA the LRA. He has abducted over 30,000 children and forced them to be child soldiers in Central Africa. He remains at large because he is INVISIBLE to the world. FEW know his name, even FEWER know his crimes. WE ARE MAKING HIM FAMOUS! Because when he is, the world will unite against him and demand his arrest.
We can help make a change. We can make a difference.
I feel so inspired. I feel the need to help and make a difference. This has to happen in 2012. We can’t let him go around and keep doing this to children in Central Africa. Let’s make his name known so he can be stopped. HE CAN NO LONGER BE INVISIBLE!
nerdfighters, we can seriously help this cause. I’m calling on all the followers of this blog now more than ever. Get Hank and John aware of this if they’re not already. I know I wasn’t. REBLOG THIS AND WATCH IT PLEASE. It’s half an hour out of your day and I promise you you wont regret it. LETS DO WHAT WE DO BEST, MAKE ANOTHER STAMP ON HUMANITY AND BRING JOSEPH KONY DOWN!

I’m just going to put this out there, load it with tags, and hope that it reaches you. Please, please explain this SOPA/Internet censorship business. You guys live in the Internet. What does this mean for Americans? For Nerdfighters? For all carbon-based life forms that don’t fall into the previous two groups?
I’m also very curious as to why this is only ‘blowing up’ the day of the hearing? To me, that seems a little late for the public to start weighing in. Either way, I would love your opinions, or just the facts on the matter broken down by two individuals who make things easier for my brain to digest.
Best Wishes, DFTBA, and thank you.
I dont know the answer to this, but even if it doesn’t reach them maybe someone can help us and explain! :)
