This is a pretty great fan made trailer for the Halo Franchise:
It’s perfect – it gives a slight overview of the universe without giving too much away. It makes it feel like there’s twists, turns, and lots of unknowns to be had. Exactly like what is in store for those who play the game.
It turns out, esteemed scientist and YouTube Star CuriosityBeyond determined there are roughly 1.5 cobs of corn in a can of corn. It’s hard to say how big the can is, but it looks like a normal can you would make for a summer BBQ. I’m not sure about his cooking methods, but that’s not my microwave, I have no ability to judge.
You should keep this in mind while you cook your first corn on the cob this weekend. Save those cobs, then buy a bunch of cans of corn for 4th of July and use this method. It’s certified faster because there’s no shucking involved. There’s no messy strings on the corn, and it cooks faster too!
I had no idea today is National Penguin Awareness Day. I had no idea that was a thing. But apparently it is, it’s a holiday, though not for the reasons above.
One of the key reasons we choose New Zealand for our Honeymoon was the chance to see Penguins. We got to see 3 or 4 of them while we were at Lake Moeraki Lodge, it took a few hours to wait for them, but it was worth it to see the ocean deposit those dumbs to the shore.
For anyone who grew up with a Nintendo 64, GoldenEye 007 was the game to have. The story behind it is pretty crazy, but I won’t get into copying it’s Wikipedia entry. The below video takes some of the famous scenes from the video game which also happened in the movie (for a movie adaption, it was pretty good). However, all the sound effects and music come from the video game version. That’s right, the ridiculous slaps, gun noises, cries, everything. It’s all from the video game. It’s quite hilarious to be honest.
This time of year, you have to remember the good old days, before there were achievements, when you and your siblings were just trying to see how many Russians you could kill with the rocket launcher and infinite ammo before you got bored of the level. When you turned on DK mode (easily the best hidden cheat since the Konami code) and pile up the hats of the dead Russians as you killed them. Ah, what times…
While the above is apparently a painting, it’s still amazingly ace. I like to take 360 photos and videos, and they are basically limited to the realm of the internetz and computer. Thanks to the amazing people on that reddit thread, I am able to shell out hundreds of dollars for one of my own actual photos on a sphere though. I could use Scandy Sphere and spend $500 on one, or Snapsphere which is at least $150, but I can’t seem to find pricing on a custom one. Lastly there’s the DIY route with this video you can follow. What is very clearly missing however is the ability to print out your sphere on paper like that. The linked site is all in Japanese, I have no idea if you can order something or not. Oh well, it seems like I’ll be regulated to viewing them all on my computer for the time being.
December 7th, 1941—a date which will live in infamy—the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.
The world changed that day. Mostly for the better but everyone now-a-days is up in arms about what could have and should have been. Today is not the day to talk about could haves, it’s a day to remember the loss of life and the way our nation, and the world’s life changed forever. The Attack on Pearl Harbor changed things, but it set about a series of events that led to today. And today you an I are reading this blog, and watching other world events happening in front of our eyes. Had things been different who knows what would have happened, but today is a day of Infamy.
