Persistence of Vision

Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
—Calvin Coolidge

Zork Nuts

Remember all the crazy themed cereals companies produced over the years? Take a trip down memory lane.

I made this fake cereal box for a Kotaku Photoshop contest. Banking on the probability that not a lot of kids would mine classic Infocom text adventures for inspiration. (Would they even be familiar with Infocom text adventures?)

I need to find out who owns the rights to some of those games. There are some great stories in there.
