Adventure? Heh. Excitement? Heh. A Jedi Craves Not These Things

Adventure? Heh. Excitement? Heh. A Jedi Craves Not These Things

Farris Hassan, a 16-year-old high school student from Florida, decided to up the ante on his journalism “immersian” project and travelled without parental knowledge to Iraq in order to see what life was really like in the war zone. Without knowing a word of Arabic, the young man flew to Kuwait and eventually made his […]

What Action Hero Would You Be Quiz

What Action Hero Would You Be Quiz

In preparation for dealing with a rather unfortunate event that transpired last week, I took the What Action Hero Would You Be? quiz. Not much of a surprise to those who know me, my greatest affinity was with The Terminator. Final results below the cut: You scored as The Terminator. The Terminator can be good […]

Who’s the new hotness, and who’s old and busted?

Who’s the new hotness, and who’s old and busted?

Not necessarily in real life, but what sites/journals have you stopped reading recently? And what has really captured your attention? I stopped reading the two journals because they were self-pitying and/or obsessive. My blood pressure went up just by reading them. I have also reduced my visits to good ol’ Ars Technica because their news […]

LOOT!

LOOT!

Hi everyone, hope you had a pleasant Christmas holiday. I scored some fantastic loot this year from my gal Lady Jaye, and the goodie I’ve had the most fun with so far is my Taiko Drum Master game from Namco for the PS2. I’ll do a full report on the game at a later date, […]

Borrowed questions

Borrowed questions

I ganked these questions from the November issue of Glamour. Two questions for you: 1. What’s the best compliment someone could give you? 2. What’s your favorite curse word, and why? My answers, you ask? 1. “You’re the person I’d call when someone’s in my house.” Knowing that people trust me to help them and […]

Sucking Vacuum Review

Sucking Vacuum Review

Lady Jaye and I held a birthday bash in my honor back in August. I was lucky enough to have most of my friends present, and to make things even better I got some games! They all fit my personality: the Captain and his family bought me a martial arts movie-style card game, gave me […]

King Kong Physics: A discussion

King Kong Physics: A discussion

I found a discussion on Ars Technica’s forums that I thought I would share. The discussion point was plain: is it possible for an ape of King Kong’s size to really exist? The thread dives quickly into a discussion about mass ratios, muscle density, and how real, large animals exist. The conclusion: there’s no way […]

Micro Touch Trimmer Review

Micro Touch Trimmer Review

One of the benefits (?) of being a night owl is that I get to see all sorts of late night wacky television commercials. From Space Age Memory Foam to vacuum cleaners that cut your hair, I’ve seen just about everything. The Micro Touch Trimmer had such a horribly cheesy ad campaign that I rolled […]

What fear lurks in the heart of men? Only the Shadow knows.

What fear lurks in the heart of men? Only the Shadow knows.

And apparently, only the Shadow knows what the fuck is wrong with my foot. I went to the doctor’s today, and had absolutely no idea what was wrong with my toes. He ruled out frostbite/exposure, fungal infection, and acute injury unless something happened that I didn’t know about :\ In short, we are going to […]
