So Many Faucets

0

Seriously, who knew that the lonely faucet had so many new ways to operate?  If you don’t believe me, search for “faucet” on Yanko Design, (or just click that link).  At the time of this writing, there’s 13 pages worth.  Sure, some of them are stupid crazy things, but some are actually pretty neat. This … Continued

The Gustav Gun

0

World War 2 was the most devastating war in human history.  If we forget about the events that ended the war thousands of miles away, Germany, Europe and the rest of the combatants used plenty of conventional weapons to wreck havoc on each other for nearly 6 years. The above shows Hitler and some generals … Continued

Judgement Day

0

We can thank our friend The Cyberdyne system T-800 Model 101 Terminator for helping us avert destruction.  At least for a little while that is, because Judgement Day can never be averted, only postponed. Much as been said about the war between the machines and the humans.  There have been many documentaries, each of them telling a … Continued

Little Boy

It’s the marking of the turning point of world history.  The United States of America showed the world that the power of the atom was within their hands, and with one plane, and one bomb, the devastated the town of Hiroshima. This ultimatum unfortunately was not enough, and another bomb was necessary to end the … Continued

Ready Player One

I have no idea what this movie is about.  Seriously, even after the trailer, it’s not apparent what the plot of the movie is.  But there are 2 Easter Eggs in the trailer that piqued my interest. If you want to find them for yourself, then don’t read any more.

Alternate History Thursday: 42nd Street

0

While 42nd Street doesn’t exactly cut Manhattan in half, it was the proverbial divide of the city.  Those in the north who were closer to the mainland were convinced that the government’s story was correct, there was nothing to fear, this was only a temporary glitch on the way towards a better world tomorrow.  As you … Continued

Orion Over Sky

Sriram Murali created the above video to show the effects that light pollution has on the beautiful night sky.  In it, he focuses on the constellation Orion, and how our perception of it changes based on the light density of the area we view it from.  The entire thing is a great example of one … Continued

Cosmonaut Day

On April 12, 1961 the Soviet Union made history by sending Yuri Gagarin into space.  He was the world’s first astronaut, and he was the one who shot the United States in the arm and made us realize that we had a long way to go if we wanted to beat the commies at their … Continued

Halo SkeeBall

0

Halo’s Forge mode is one of those zany things that will never cease to amaze you.  Yes, there has been the more traditional death match maps made, but the video above is a version of Skee Ball, the classic arcade game where you’re not allowed to climb on the ramps. {reddit}

Logan

0

I’m extremely sad that Logan will be the last time that Hugh Jackman plays Wolverine.  He’s one of those perfectly cast characters, and someone that you will really have a hard time finding a replacement for.  The X-Men have always been my favorite comic book movie series.  Honestly, I was never a comic book fan, … Continued
