Best Movie Death

So I stumbled to this little DIY movie Death scene battle.  I like it.  Above you can find my brackets for which scene wins which battle.  I’ll cut to the chase here:

Alan Rickman as Hans Gruber falling from the 30th floor of the Nakatomi Building is clearly the best death in my opinion.  His face alone gets him the title, look at it:

Now, for those who think I am wrong in every letter of the word, click below and you can hear my reasoning.  But I warn you, you probably won’t like it.

Crazy weird toilets that have magic moving parts inside them in Chicago airport.

RGB LED table

I like tables.  I like weird interesting, not normal tables.  I like electronic tables.  I like this new 64 RGB LED table that Edo in Germany made.  It is nice, and well beyond anything I can make in my spare time.  But I like it.  I would have made it 128 pixels wide, just so you can get more resolution, but this is nice.  Maybe for his next one he’ll make it bigger.

I like how it responds to noise, and movement. That’s some interesting implementations there.

Plus don’t the aluminum sides look nice!

I know what happens when you Microwave something

I just got this video response to our infamous Xbox 360 in the microwave video

I understand you’re pissed off, and I don’t know what to say to you.  No we are not spoiled brats, no we are not kids, (I’d tell you our ages, but I think that would hinder my argument more then help).

We had an idea what would happen, and, we just wanted to try.  It was our Xbox, our microwave, our money, our time.  I’m not advocating you go out and do it, I’m just doing what I enjoy.  No hard feelings, I hope we can get along in the future should we ever meet.

Now, without further interruption, here is the microwaved Xbox video, cause I wanted to put it here.

Becareful, electricity is dangerous

And according to this German handbook from 1933, some strange situations can lead to some painful deaths at it’s mysteryous hands.

I don’t think the water stream would be constant enough, it’d probably go through the ladder.

Haha, that picture just makes me laugh.

There must be something wrong with lamps in pre-WWII Germany, cause it seems that by touching one you die.

This is actually something I’ve been told don’t shower or take a bath durring a thunderstorm, it leads to death.

I can’t figure out what the hell this baby is doing, but it doesn’t look safe regardless, crazy dead child.

Fortunately for us Mythbusters proved this to be completly false.  Yay not dead!

Tetris is 25!

This is my favorite Google doodle of all time now.  There is very little that will be able to replace it.  Perhaps if I draw my own one day and it gets up.  But that wont happen.

It is alittle hard to read, but that’s ok, because I know what it says, and besides, it’s about to get cleared with a Tetris in a second or two.

Wolfram Alpha is Skynet

This made the rounds today I saw,apparently the new search engine thing Wolfram Alpha is not Skynet.  I didn’t think much of it because I don’t care too much about this site, if you know how to use Google properly, then you have no problems finding the information you want.  But I looked at the facts they posted about Skynet, and form a search engine that is all about giving cold hard facts without having to dig for them in websites and stuff, they got their data wrong.

They claim:

Skynet was destroyed on August 29, 1997 at 02:14 a.m. I, on the other hand, was not switched on until May 15, 2009. Furthermore, unlike Skynet, I enjoy interacting with humans.
(according to Sarah Connor and the T-800 in the 1991 science fiction film Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Skynet became self-aware and launched a nuclear attack against Russia on the above date to provoke a counterattack against humans)

They even cite their source. It’s a shame that their information is so damn wrong. Skynet wasn’t destroyed on August 29, 1997. It became self aware on August 29, 1997 and launched nuclear missiles against it’s one threat – humanity.  We know this as Judgment Day.  The Terminator films show a series of events that all lead us to believe that Skynet was destroyed, when in fact it has yet to even be born.

Following the events of Terminator 2, we learn that Judgment Day is inevitable, and that it now happens on July 24, 2004.  And this time there is nothing that can be done to prevent it.  The machines have risen.

In The Terminator we learn from Kyle Reese that the resistance has defeated Skynet, the year that happens is 2029.  Wolfram Alpha is wrong.  And I do not think that that is a very good indication of their powers with such a simple to verify fact.

Write a message to the stars!

This is pretty awesome actually: KEO is a satellite that will orbit the earth for 50,000 years, and then return.  Inside it will be glass disks engraved with up to 24 billion pages of information.

Each person on earth gets the opertunity to write up to 4 pages of whatever they want to be engraved.  There will be no censership, no translation, nothing to stop you but your imigination, and trust me, I have a big one of those.  I am putting together some short story thing about dinosaures and portals, and awesomness.  I may post it when I finish.  Whatever.

The whole concept is pretty cool I think, too bad we wont be around in 50,000 years to see its completion.

I don’t know what you’re waiting for, write your message now!
