Star Wars meets Marvel
Coming this summer to a comic store (or digital tablet) near you is Marvel Comic’s big blockbuster publishing event! We’ve been told from their editorial team that it is the crossover event to end all crossover events.
We certainly hope so!
When Robert Oppenheimer famously said “I am become death, the destroyer of worlds” after the atomic bomb was used on Japan bringing World War II to a dramatic close, he was remarking on his
Don't ever help a feminist.A team of male college students has invented a nail polish that detects certain date rape drugs. And just like clockwork the feminists have come along to use this to rationalize their insane world view that all men are either rapists, potential rapists, or rape supporters.Don't ever help a feminist.11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Maya Dusenbery an Executive Director of the website Feministing, wrote an article claiming that protecting women from rapists is rape culture. My comments are in bold.
Thanks to four male college students from North Carolina State University, you may soon be able to buy some nail polish that detects date rape drugs to go with your anti-rape underwear. Throw in your rape whistle and pepper spray camera, and you might be able to delude yourself into believing you’re 100% safe from sexual violence.
None of those things ever claimed to be 100% effective against all forms of sexual violence. Women

WAKING UP THE FORCE: New Star Wars Games Build Anticipation
For Episode VII
“Star Wars: Battle Pod” has been released in arcades across America. An international release of the game is imminent.
The game is about the size of a moderately–large photo booth, and it weighs around 1,000 pounds. To enter, you open a small door and take a seat inside the compartment. In front of you rests an almost impossibly large curved screen, as well as the left– and right–hand controls. This is the type of chamber you may enter

The Bimbo Game - Game MechanicsAlright folks. These are the conceptual game mechanics I have come up with for the game. I wanted to keep them relatively simple yet maintain a feeling of character growth and that the player had options in the transformations he was choosing. After some research this all looks feasible in the engine I am working with but it will be some work. So! What am I missing? Are there other traits or abilities that folks might like to see? What about character stats? To anyone out there who has made a game before is this feasible?The Bimbo Game - Game Mechanics1 month ago in Personal More Like This

This series features artists whose work is grounded in hard science, and one cannot get more grounded in science than Blender artist Rhys Taylor, astrophysicist, Arecibo galaxy hunter, currently hailing from the Astronomical Institute, Prague.
When I started researching Project Orion after reading George Dyson’s book on the topic* one of the first things I came across was Rhys Taylor’s now famous youtube video Project Orion: A Re-Imagining. At the time I never dreamed that one day I would be brainstorming nuclear pulse propulsion concepts with Rhys1, nor did I imagine that my nuclear pulse propulsion art would play a role, albeit a small role2, the larger contribution being made by Winchell Chung, who provided Rhys with early concept art for the Discovery spacecraft from Arthur C.

Don Draper seems to think so.

Actor Robin Williams Is Dead at 63 of Suspected Suicide
Aug 11, 2014, 9:36 PM ET
By LESLEY MESSER
The Oscar-winning actor and comedian Robin Williams died this morning in California. He was 63.
"At this time, the Sheriff’s Office Coroner Division suspects the death to be a suicide due to asphyxia, but a comprehensive investigation must be completed before a final determination is made," the Marin County Coroner said in a statement. "A forensic examination is currently scheduled for August 12, 2014 w
(Spoilers) Let's talk about Inside Out (Spoilers)I suppose I should get the obvious pun out of the way: this is a very emotional movie.(Spoilers) Let's talk about Inside Out (Spoilers)1 month ago in Personal More Like This
Before I really start though, I think we should talk about some semantics. "Original" does not mean "good." Also "original" does not really mean "creative." Original things are usually creative, but creative things don't really need to be entirely original. Why did I bring this up? Because it's giving this movie some criticism it doesn't really deserve. We've had media go into someone's head and interact with their emotions (Psychonauts). We've had someone's inner workings be expanded to be a facility or a city (Osmosis Jones). So Inside Out isn't the most original thing in the world, but it still has a lot of creativity. Actually, it features a lot more mastery than it does creativity and we'll be talking about that quite a bit. It may not be "original" but it's my favorite Pixar movie, and quite possibly my favorite movie in general.
I really want to talk about the inner workings of this movie, so
SpaceX CRS-7 launch and landing attemptJuly 20, 2015 Update: CRS-7 Investigation UpdateSpaceX CRS-7 launch and landing attempt1 month ago in Personal More Like This
Summary: Preliminary analysis suggests the overpressure event in the upper stage liquid oxygen tank was initiated by a flawed piece of support hardware (a “strut”) inside the second stage which failed approximately 138 seconds into flight. The pressurization system itself was performing nominally, but with the failure of this strut, the helium system integrity was breached. This caused a high pressure event inside the second stage within less than one second and the stage was no longer able to maintain its structural integrity. The strut (supplied by an outside contractor) was designed and material certified to handle 10,000 lbs of force, but failed at 2,000 lbs, a five-fold difference.
Despite the fact that these struts have been us

Brother Against Brother - House of Cards meets Game of Thrones meets Jericho meets The Walking Dead (without the zombies). An increasingly tyrannical United States government, under a power-hungry, Machiavellian president (a Frank Underwood expy) goes too far and does something intolerable (Canceling elections? Arresting opposition? I dunno). A popular movement, from the left, right and center, calls for the President's impeachment. Things escalate, and a protest in Washington turns into a bloodbath. The United States is plunged into a new civil war, with many military and police defecting to the rebels' side. And of course, while the rebels are united against the government, they have very different views on what should emerge from the rubble.
The show would be very gray vs. gray morally, with sympathetic and utter bastard PoV characters on both sides. PoV characters can be leaders, foo
