Off to New Zealand

0

Now I’m off to New Zealand on my honeymoon.  Again, I don’t know who reads this, but I thought you should know.  It’s kinda funny though, all the things that I have to do this month, and it just might end up being the most popular month post wise!

Wooden Tower Domino Fun

0

Watching things like this is satisfying, that’s all I have to say:

It took 16 hours to construct this behemoth which stands at nearly 20 feet tall using 22,000 planks of wood (ok, not dominoes, but still ace).  I don’t know which is more impressive, putting the whole thing together without a misstep which caused destruction, or the engineering necessary to get everything to fall in order without knocking other things out.  The final seconds of the collapse, when the entire tower implodes, that’s impressive because I was on the edge of my seat waiting and hoping that one of those sticks wouldn’t fall incorrectly and knock something else off balance.

RCT, Kinda IRL

Yes this reminds me of RollerCoaster Tycoon.  Yes, this is awesome.  No, this. is. not. CGI.  This is a drone following a real live roller coaster in Sweden.  It’s incredible, and honestly makes me excited for the things that drone pilots will do in the future.  Following a speeding roller coaster is really way more awesome than watching Drone Racing.  I mean yea, Drone Racing is pretty ace, but it’s kind of boring if you’re not flying them yourself.  This though, this is pretty ace.

It’s All I Play

Sadly I haven’t had a chance to play this as often or as much as I once used to.  But this song is apt and describes some of the most fun times I’ve had in my young adult life.  I probably spent a few years of my life playing games of Halo with people young and old, men and women (though, really mostly men), and near and far.  It’s hard to describe how big of an influence Halo was on the world of gaming, it’s sort of like Super Mario Bros.  Halo 3 was my favorite of the series and easily the one I spent the most time in.  To this day I still play around in it, but I’m rusty, very rusty, and more easily frustrated and prone to controller throwing.  Anyway, Halo 3 came out 12 years ago today, fire up a game and enjoy.

18 Years

Can you believe that it’s been eighteen years since that faithful morning when the world stopped?  Eighteen years.  There are teenagers alive now who you can have an adult conversation with who weren’t alive when it happened.  There are young adults who were still in diapers when it happened.  It was a terrible event, but it will not be forgotten.  The world might have changed significantly since that faithful morning, but we should always remember the time right after it when we as a country were united together.  We must go back to those times and we will realize that we can make it through anything.

 

Strange Juggling Balance Thing

0

I really don’t see a need for this, but it exists because someone made it.  That someone is Ameron Rosvall, a prop maker and juggler (according to his Instagram), also the owner of a pretty sick beard.  He’s got some pretty neat contraptions on his Instagram, but that one above is the king.  He looks so satisfied getting the balls to remain in their loops just dancing around.  He’s got some pretty good hand-eye-chin coordination too, check out this one:

The smaller ring works too 😃
