Alternate History Thursday: Halloween

0

I honestly hate this “holiday”  Even if it’s a glorified reason to dress up in less clothes, that’s demeaning towards people haven’t you heard? In West Roanoke 1588 the remains of the original alien invaders to earth were discovered by the colonists there. The primitive colonists had no idea what this type of technology was, or … Continued

Circuit Board Art

0

Old circuit boards had a certain beauty to them.  All those delicate lines of silver solder connecting components together.  They had a two part purpose – you could actually repair something if necessary, and they looked pretty cool.  With the ever increasing levels of optimization we get smaller and smaller components and we loose this … Continued

I Dare You!

0

CNN Money is reporting Nickelodeon is going to bring back the classic fun game show Double Dare for a special 30th anniversary show!  I think the more interesting thing here is that Double Dare is as old as me (Or, technically a few months younger if you wanna get specific).  I thought it was a … Continued

There’s a Vice Presidential debate on tonight.  I doubt it will be as interesting to watch as the Presidential ones.  You should watch it though, these are your second in command people.

The Simpsons Did it First

0

The Simpsons is about to start it’s 28th season tomorrow night.  Every year I look it up, and every year I’m astonished that it’s been airing almost my entire life.  Naturally, with something that has about 600 episodes to it’s name, it’s bound to have tried to predict something, or in the Simpsons’ universe, poke … Continued

All I Play-Oh

0

On the eve of the release of the greatest game on the Xbox 360 I re-present you this great video showing the game that re-defined everything.  Ok, maybe I over-exaggerated a bit, but like the general theme of the video, Halo is all I Play-Oh.  It was the reason I bought a Xbox, and an … Continued

Disappearing Lake

0

Unfortunately this isn’t just a magic act.  The above video shows the disappearance of the the once great Aral Sea in Kazakhstan.  This is a completely man-made “phenomenon” when the Soviets diverted water that fed into the lake for irrigation of crops.  Over time naturally, humans got greedy and wanted more water until eventually one of … Continued

Remember

15 years ago the worst attack on America happened.  Where were you?  I know where I was.  In high school, just getting through our welcome back to school Mass (I went to a Catholic school).  I’ll always remember that day, and the things that happened.  The teachers that tried to teach, and those that just … Continued

And So It Begins

0

What, you thought I was going to say World War II?  That’s so typical, not everything is about the Greatest Generation. Today marks the beginning of the school year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.  I know I keep my love of Harry Potter somewhat of a secret compared to many of the other … Continued

You Can Never Prevent Judgment Day

0

YouTube user John Chapman and some of his buddies took some, quite a lot according to them, to recreate the motorcycle chase scene from Terminator 2: Judgment Day in the video game Grand Theft Auto 5.  They didn’t do a perfect job of it, but honestly, I think that’s better.  The subtle differences make for a more unique … Continued
