As a kid who screamed his head off Christmas after Christmas opening boxes of consoles from Atarti to Gamecube, this video practically has me weeping. Although it’s missing some great consoles, it gives a brief history of gaming in a short period of time. If 30 years (not counting the oscilloscope) has brought us this far, imagine what it will be like in another 30 years.
Man, what I wouldn’t do to have a setup like this!
German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche was under the belief that God had died. I guess to prove that he was in fact still alive, God took it upon himself to play the ultimate checkmate move 0n August 25th, 1900. Nietzsche was only 55 at the time. Well played God…well played.
There is something to be said about being able to get a quick workout in at home using your Nintendo Wii. You don’t have to get dressed, head down to the gym or go through any of those typical hassles. You’re safe to stay in your own home and avoid all the perils of the “outside” world. Unfortunately for this bloke there are hazards even in his living room.
Here you have Xianghua’s Soul Calibur sword, Kamui’s divine sword, the Shinken from the anime X/1999 by Clamp and Hikaru’s Rayearth blade from Magic Knight Rayearth. These were all created by blademaster Aaron. I know I would love to don one of these badboys.
He’s done a fantastic job of reproducing the these weapons in stunning accuracy. You can see that he put a load of time and love into designing them.
The entire blade was hand carved with features from tiny scales to hand woven chain mail. It was painted with chameleon color shifting paint, and measures about 36” long by 8” wide, with an overall weight of only 2 lbs. And although structurally impossible with steel, this fiberglass and resin blade is held together by a clear ball, making it rather fragile, yet highly unique
This is how 5 times Kickboxing World Champion Michael Kuhr handles a rowdy patron that would like to get into the club he is a bouncer at. Personally I would go with a roundhouse to the head Guile-style. But either way, it seems that all his training and general ass-kicking have paid off. After this, I’m certain that the disorderly guy will get his act together and no longer try to hassle club staff.
Straight from Bollywood, this film titled Endhiran is just pure awesome-sauce. You really won’t need to watch another action movie for the rest of the year. This will satisfy all of your adrenaline junkie needs. I would love to see Jason Statham make something to outdo this. If anyone could it would be him.
The recent mob bust sounds like it was something straight out of Sopranos. Personally it had me wondering what the heck was going on. It still amazes me that there is a syndicated mob structure gainfully working to this day. I thought all that was just a 70′s/80′s thing. Seems sort of stereotypical to have a New York (Jersey) mob…but apparently there still going strong. Here is a cool graphic that breaks it all down for you.
It looks like the Dollar Store is even better than Barnes & Noble or Borders in categorization of their books. Hopefully this will get the latter two to rethink the way they’ve chosen to display theirs. It just makes more sense this way, doesn’t it? I guess it could also go under Fantasy.
It’s tough being a lowly toilet paper roll. You sit there most of the day alone and in the dark. Your only action comes when someone feels the need to literally wipe their ass on your face. What a shitty job. Through all of this, the ever great invention of the 20th century still manges to be cheerful at times. If you’ve ever wondered what the different expressions of your TP were, here is a guide for you.
