Halo: Infinite

It’s been a long time coming, but we finially have some concrete video for Halo: Infinite – AKA, Halo 6. It looks…good:

I gotta say, the gameplay itself looks like a cross between Halo 5 and something else. What that something else is, I’m not sure. It looks fast paced and very much like H5. I was never a fan of sprint, or clamber and they’re both there, but that’s not the end of the world. The grappling hook is neat, I hope it doesn’t turn into something stupid though.

All in all, I’m excited for it. I will buy it of course, but will I play it again, or will I 100% it and then uninstall it to go back to the good ol’days? That remains to be seen.

Here’s the official trailer:

Obi-Wan Remembers

I have never seen this fan-cut before, but it is 100% worth the watch. It’s amazing how much emotion went into some scenes with 0 backstory, but then again, that’s acting for you.

Super Fast Plane

For real though, how can you even control something going to fast? Like, I get it when you’re watching it form the first person point of view, and you have something giant, and you’re a few hundred or thousand feet above the ground. But a little R/C plane. Damn, some people are just skilled.

How Much Corn is In a Can

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!

Halo Trailers

I’m not sure what caused it, but I started watching all these old trailers/advertisements for various Halo Games. There’s something about them that I don’t really remember from any other video game. Call me nostalgic, call me biased, but the marketing of all the Halos was pretty unforgettable. Be it the live action ones, the diorama ones, or the cinematic game rendered ones, everything was high quality. I remember most of these, some better than others, I remember being excited.

Like I said, I don’t know why, but I’ve watched this whole list and it’s really something different that I don’t remember anywhere else.

The Life Straw

It seems like everyone has one of these. Or at least anyone who did any hiking or other outdoor activities. I have one, I never used it. But I trusted the sale and bought one anyway. Well, being stuck inside has got people doing all sorts of crazy things with their time.

Have you wondered if a life straw works? Wonder no more, a decent test to show that if you really needed one it would actually work.

The mighty engines of the SR-71

There are few airplanes as interesting as the SR-71. For those who don’t know (hopefully not many), it’s the fastest manned air breathing aircraft. That’s a mouthful isn’t it? Basically, like everything humans do, instead of simple “fastest aircraft ever”, we had to come up with a bunch of other criteria to subclass everything.

Anyway, the power of the SR-71 comes from it’s engines. Watching the video above to learn about all the crazy engineering that went into place to get the world’s fastest plane built. The video reminds me of those cutaway books you’d read as a kid. Except now it’s animated and narrated..

The Hail Cannon

Did you know about these? I didn’t until cursing around reddit (more so than usual being stuck inside). It’s a Hail Cannon. Apparently it’s useless, but it’s still pretty crazy. Basically a controlled explosion directed upwards to try and break up hail stones before they can fall to the ground. I’m not so sure how well it would work, and the research is inconclusive because the weather is, as always unpredictable.

Video Chat to the Rescue

Yea, this is pretty frekin ace. Yes, I like the Backstreet Boys, deal with it. This video is an awesome way to be stuck within quarantine isolation. Plus it’s perfect to get stuck in your head.

It’s also amazing to see how much some of the aged, and how some look still pretty young. Anyway, enjoy this on your Monday.
