Did I mention that I turn 30 tomorrow?
Damn. Where does the time go…
Don’t worry though, I won’t put you through the usual meloncholic musings and morose thoughts about one’s mortality that most people seem to ramble on about when they hit those “milestone” years.
Instead…. I bring you the stupidity that is…. NINJA BURGER!
Where they’ll deliver your order in 30 minutes or less….. or they commit seppuku!
The turf war is amusing in the Fun section and the clan quiz is Guaranteed to waste at least 5 minutes of your life…. so enjoy.
Here’s hoping this fun little Mike Mignola comic adaptation doesn’t get ruined like Alan Moore’s League of Extraordinary Gentlemen did. Still, the trailer looks cool and I’m fanboy enough just to enjoy that for now.
… and were enroute to Saturn, you might just happen to glance to your left and see This view of Saturn’s big Jovian brother.
Isn’t it cool to be a spacecraft some days.
I give you This News Article and then the goobs over at Bloopwatch.com. You can now draw your own conclusions about whether it’s just a weird underwater noise or if Cthulhu really is talking in his sleep.
I found this little link on the web about a Star Trek Computer RPG game that was supposed to come out a few years ago but never did. Apparently it had voice acting from all the original cast and was supposed ot be SOTA for it’s time… for one reason or another it never got made though…
However there are some snippets of some of the CGI work still floating around.
Here’s one of Spock while they were testing the animation on a talking head
Enjoy. It’s rather funny, it would be funnier if it was actually Nimoy’s voice, but hey you can’t have everything now can you?
Well. Looks like the little microscopic universal particles known as humanity have passed (or are passing) another milestone in our evolutionary history.
For the first time we are about to have something we made travel beyond the bounds of our solar system.
Voyager I is now about 90 AU (1 Astronomical Unit = The Distance from the Sun to the Earth for the uninformed) from the sun and is very close to passing outside the magnetic grasp of good ol Sol.
Kinda makes you proud to be a microscopic universal particle doesn’t it? We just have to remember what good old Douglas Adams has to say on the subject.
“Space is big. Really really big. You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it’s a long way down the road to the drug store, but that’s just peanuts to space.”

And just some interesting facts that I found on the Beeb’s website (that’s the BBC to you non english speakers… err I mean Americans) about the amount of bang Fawkes would have got for his buck.
