The week is almost at an end, and so it's time for a Thursday Kotaku evening open thread. How has your Thursday been? Have you Seattle-ites been keeping out of the snow? Have those of you in the rest of the country been keeping from being too holier-than-thou about how much snow you get each winter?

Here, culled from the world wide internet, is a collection of potential conversation-starters and other cool crap.

And that's what I got. Chat with clear eyes and full hearts. You can't lose.
