2018 Olympics

0

Are about to start! Are you ready? You’ll have to be up in the early morning this Friday to watch the opening ceremony live.  That is if you can find it streaming somewhere online (if you’re in America).  Dang stupid NBC is putting it on a 10 hour tape delay for “prime-time”  Oh boy I … Continued

Alternate History Thursday: State of the Union?

0

It’s 2018, a year has passed since our reflection on the events of SONY.  With the Mafia taking over Mexico, and the release of the millions of people from NYC, the United States was on wobbly ground in the new years.  Redistricting of the nation, and redistribution of the population caused a major upheaval of … Continued

Velcro?

0

As public service announcements go, this one is pretty damn good.  We all fall for it, we call things by the brand names that made them famous, were the firsts, or had the best marketing strategy.  However it’s wrong, and if you go somewhere else, people might not know what you’re talking about.  Like seriously, … Continued

Cast Iron Fish

0

Did you know that in the Victorian era, elaborate cast iron fish tanks were all the rage among the nobility?  I didn’t.  I assumed fish tanks, because of the glass, plastic, electricity, and silicone necessary were a relatively recent commodity.  I would be wrong.  Tropical Fish Magazine has a detailed write up on what went … Continued

Skyline Shades

0

The Ukraine company HoleRoll has these ace blackout blinds for windows.  Through (I assume) laser cutting fabric and material, you get a gorgeous shadow/lightbox view of either the Manhattan Skyline, the London Skyline, or the general night sky.  Unfortunately, the prices are quite high – $178 for one pane of the panel.  That’s the base … Continued

It’s Just Hotdogs

Being sneaked into people’s pockets.  The guy is quite fun to watch.  I love the PG attitude he has throughout.  Too often now people curse in the videos that otherwise don’t really warrant it. {reddit}

Alternate History Thursday: – Mexico

0

Those lights were bright on Broadway you know.  Wonderful, colorful, beautiful lights.  In a geological instant they were snuffed out, flooded, and destroyed.  SONY (Sinking of New York), had cataclysmic effects across the world, though none as great as the immediate south of The United States of America.  I’m talking about Mexico.  Specifically, the sovereignty … Continued

It’s a Halo Christmas

0

I like the nice poem, and the overviews of the different custom made maps.  Overall the video above is a good throw back to the golden days of Halo.  I’m not particularly confident that 343 will manage to fix Halo with the eventual release of Halo 6. though I reserve the right to be wrong.  … Continued

The Winter Marblympics

0

The Qualification rounds for the 2018 Winter Marblympics are on.  So far there are 2 events, Snow race and Curling.  Unlike Curling in real life, the Marblelympic version was quite boring.  Like the Summer games, this looks like it’s on track for a very fun filled series of events, and if the snow race was … Continued

Would you like a Kool Kandy Kane?

0

Candy Canes are a traditional Christmas delicacy.  And I use the word delicacy lightly.  It’s not exactly rare.  It is one of those things though that you really only see at one time of the year.  If you ever wondered how they are made, here are a series of videos curtesy of MAKE that show … Continued
