Who/What controls the inside of a giant robot?
A: The brain/s
Its not just the human who controls the robot - its the also the brain.
- the brain contols the human, and the human contols the robot.

Can Now existI was thinking about it, and i realized that the moment that we are in now may not be able to exist. The reason for this, is that if time is infinite in both directions, there would be an infinity since the beginning of time till now. An infinity can never end,which means that now can never come. However if there was a begging of time that now would be possible. The question is... what was before the beginning of time. However, there is the idea the before matter, there was not time, if time is only relevant to matter.Can Now exist14 hours ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
What makes societyThere are two things that influence culture. One of these things is when cultures interact and adopt things from each other. another is human nature. Human nature is something that is built into our DNA and influences our culture. And admit it. Humans are animals, so we have things that we all instinctively do. I came up with the idea of human nature, due to the fact that there are certain things that different cultures do, who have had no contact with each other.What makes society14 hours ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
Vanguardias y cubismoVanguardias y cubismo16 hours ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
En dos ocasiones diferentes se ha hablado con cierta magnificencia de los progresos que han hecho estas dos tendencias en el arte actual y a partir de la novedad se ha encomiado tanto el nombre de "vanguardia" que si alguien no tiene algo de surrealista en su toque artístico o en su método de creación es considerado un clasicista, un retrógrado que no ve más allá.
En la opinión de los artistas que publican en algunas páginas como ésta las vanguardias han confundido estilos, han acabado con la belleza que tenía la composición y el mérito de una bien lograda técnica. Se hace psicología a través del arte y se jactan los vanguardistas de conocedores de filosofía al permitir al hombre "nuevas sensaciones" y perspectivas. Si no hay verdad, no hay belleza; si no hay un objeto que nos cautive por la bondad de su ser tampoco hay belleza; mucho menos si ni siquiera pret
Nicholaides Update - Schedule 2Main Idea of the ApproachNicholaides Update - Schedule 22 days ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
The main idea of Kimon Nicholaides' The Natural Way to Draw is to provide the student with fundamental experiences to use as building blocks. With these the student establishes the hierarchy of concepts and abilities. We are lead to these experiences by exercises. In Schedule One these are 1) blind contour, 2) gesture and 3) cross-contour. Schedule two adds 4) potential gesture and 5) the flash pose. The rest of the book continues in this manner, introducing more exercises and having us practice them three hours a day.
Season to Taste
So far so good, though I find it necessary to adapt the exercises to suit my taste. I already told you about the Human Pantograph Variation and progressive-resistance approach to blind contour. That's one adaptation. (Two, really.) Another was to modify potential gesture, turning it into what Hogarth would call multi-phasic action.

Articulo sobre el tabu del suicidio¿Quién mató a Kurt Cobain?Articulo sobre el tabu del suicidio2 days ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
Me hizo gracia, a la par que me horrorizó, ver en un comic que me prestaron, “Kurt Cobain, el ángel errático” como la estrella “iluminaba” a sus amigos en una viñeta con la siguiente (supuesta) frase: “Es muy fácil tío. Para mí lo es. Tengo genes de suicida”.
Dudando tremendamente de la veracidad de los hechos, llegué a muchas conclusiones por aquellos tiempos:
Un verdadero suicida, en primer lugar, no dice que lo es. Procura esconder sus problemas y su difícil decisión porque nadie lo va a comprender, van a intentar evitar que lleve a cabo todo lo que está ultimando de forma oculta a los demás, y, sobre todo, va a hacer infelices a sus seres queridos por estas razones.
Muchas otras personas, en segundo lugar, hacen ese tipo de comentarios o se comportan de modo autodestructivo para llamar la atención sobre ellas, pero es una de tantas variantes

With the proliferation of ALS videos swarming the social networking sites, the ALS Foundation has released a statement saying that only about 30% of the funds are being channeled to the actual research. The other 70% are being used for the general education and public awareness. Well, that means someone at the ALS screwed up. Or maybe you people doing the videos provided faulty links? Either way, that 70% isn't coming back.

The more gold you put onto the Fiend's Scale, the harder the battles will be. In return, your rewards will get better and more abundant. The best way to earn gold fast is to win Classic battles on higher intensity.

Biased Review - New Super Mario Bros. WiiOK, first off, let me say that New Super Mario Bros. Wii is a great game. Please keep that in mind during this review. Remember this.

Now that the anti-hate disclaimer is out of the way, let me tell you the truth about this game.
New Super Mario Bros. Wii has to be the single most frustrating game in the entire Super Mario franchise. And no, not because of difficulty. In fact, this game is not all that hard. Yes, they are some occasional difficulty spikes, but most of those happen during the last few areas of the game. I'll talk more about that later. What is truly maddening is the design of the game, particularly the design of the levels and the multiplayer feature. They're just, they're just not right.
Alright, the first thing I want to talk about the earlier mentioned multiplayer in this game. It's rage incarnate. You'll never hate your friends more after the first time one of them picks up your character, and throws them into pit. An
How to Get the Most from Gesture DrawingHow to Get the Most from Gesture DrawingHow to Get the Most from Gesture Drawing4 days ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
Especially as a Comic/Manga/Highly Stylized Illustrator
For those who were never introduced to it in art class, gesture drawing is a particular form of art exercise in which you do very quick sketches from a reference model or image as practice. They're done in a couple minutes max, usually more like one minute, and they try and capture the overall pose and weight of a person (or animal) in loose, quick strokes. More importantly, they train the artist who's doing them to observe, focus, and translate what they're seeing with their eyes into what they're seeing with their brain and putting onto paper.
Even if you never plan to draw a realistic picture in your life, and only want to get better at cartoons or comics or manga or whatever, gesture drawing is hella useful. Everyone has a mental picture of what a human looks like, where all the pieces go, etc. Gesture drawing improves that picture, and it improves it hella fast.

Russia has sent tanks into Ukraine, effectively continuing their military involvement in this stupid conflict. It's getting really frustrating hearing Russia always taking the top news stories.

I created Martin and his story when I was on vacation in Adelaide, Australia back in 1984. Some of you are old enough to remember that year.I was fifteen.
So how do you stick with something this long. With the same character? Don't you ever get bored???
I think the reason I haven't abandoned the whole project is because I wanted to see it through.
Before Deviant Art and the internet, it was very difficult to find people who thought the same way or had the same interests. You couldn't Google, Facebook or Meet up. You had to look in the papers, community center or library notice boards, or try to find a non-seedy comic book shop that had events going on.
When Martin was created, I had no one to tell me whether or not I was doing something worthwhile. So the story stayed in a file, in a binder, occasionally seeing the light of day in art class, English class or on my pa

Not exactly in a sense that everyone can have you, and use you as they want to.
But your life, your love, feelings, your family, lovers and friends aren't only yours anymore.
Your fans can have you and use you in their imagination, fanart and fanfiction. They can have you as action-figures, in all the countless photos of you, gossip websites and memes.
You get millions of additional lives. And they are all yours and theirs.
And it's done. You do belong to everybody. You're a person-symbol. You're not-anonymous forever.
On a collective level, in the consciousness of the crowd, you are there. And there's nothing wrong with that.
As much you belong to everyone who praise or hate you, the same much your fans and haters belong to you.
You are a hub.
That's a fine art of breathing with the crowd.
Keeping abreast of the truth... ...about formula saving babies' livesKeeping abreast of the truth... 5 days ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
Thursday, August 28, 2014 (The Irish Examiner Newspaper)
ABOUT 830,000 newborn babies would be saved every year if they had just one hour at their mother’s breast before being separated from her. That’s why Save the Children call breast milk a “super-food”. It is nature’s miracle-worker.
Babies in the developing world who are breastfed for six months are 15 times less likely to die from diarrhoea or pneumonia than their bottle-fed counterparts.
But babies in the developed world have nothing to fear from a lack of breast milk? Wrong. In 1989, the US National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences estimated that four out of every 1,000 American babies died because they were not breastfed.
American babies, then. Not our babies, surely? Wrong, too. Our babies are the same as babies everywhere. So are our boobs. Though you wouldn’t think it from our breast-feeding statistics: We

Today's lucky spotlight is Michael Jackson and what timing too, in a few days it's what would have been his 56th birthday had he not died around four years ago. Although I'm not really sure I could picture him doing a moonwalk at 90 years old either.
Now a quick summary of his family history, his dad was a jerk who wanted to make his kids famous in the 1970s when disco was still a thing and would only die out when 1980 rolled around. Michael wanted to join his brothers in the group but his dad was just like "nope" but then I guess his mom finally talked him into it or he finally conceded o

Blog series on observing changes women present in the wonderful world of geek, pop culture.
by Christopher Harris
Hey everyone and welcome to the first segment of “Women and Geek, Pop Culture”. If you haven’t read the introduction piece then this series, like the name implies, will highlight some of the more authoritative roles women have in geek media. For example, the series will pin-point certain forms of media by briefly underlying how the particular show might diverge from reoccurring tropes and narratives we almost expect to see today. It’ll analyze fictional characters in TV, comics and video games, and emphasize the effects these characters have on future media and the representation of women.
I’m excited to present the very first woman in geek pop culture. She just wrapped up her third book and is coming out with her first video game very soon!

1) Hello and welcome here! Let's introduce yourself!
Hi, I'm Christian and at the moment the only guy behind Al Andalus. Lot of people think because of my music that I'm a Muslim or an arab guy but - surprise - I'm not. I'm half german, half spanish and I live here in Germany. It was my personal interest in general oriental culture and history and music which bring me to write oriental influenced music
2) Al Andalus: it's perfect for describing your music!
Yes, indeed it is. To know why, you need to know what exactly Al andalus is: Al Andalus was originally the name a medieval islamic state on the Iberian Peninsula (now Spain and Portugal) and its used generally to describe all regions of Spain which were controlled by Muslims between 711 and the Reconquista in 1492. Nowadays Al Andalus is known commonly for multiculturalism, tolerance and peace between religions, especially between Muslims and Christians. So that's what I am...a Spanish Christian making Oriental "Islamic" metal.

After a few years, with annoyance as my companion; I went to a school where I came across a native language teacher who showed much devotion to Catholicism and was a fan of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R.
