xaminmo: (Portal 2008 for Prez)


This was a triumph
I'm making a note here
HUGE SUCCESS

GLaDOS/Companion Cube 2008: For a future of portals and neat guns and delicious, moist cake!

Let everyone know that in 2008 you want a president who loves science, who loves delicious cake, and who doesn't hold a grudge when you burn her in a fire. And hey, a vice president who fancies pink hearts is a good candidate in my book!

You will receive three (3) 1 inch buttons and a few free matching stickers. I created this design in Illustrator.

If you'd like different quantities of this item, please send me a conversation here on etsy and I can set up a new listing for you.

Portal, GLaDOS and the Companion Cube are (c) Valve.

The guy multiplies a 5 digit number in his head.

Part of it he stores mentally as cookie and fission.

Pendulum in Dallas. The outer, black rim of the dias is waist-high railing. There's a 6am marker. The sphere is probably 12" solid brass.

Wowzers.

You can sync between cameras, and have a slide tray for collaboration shots.

Some cameras will email from the camera directly to a photo printing site if you so wish.

For Xmas, I got a Kovocas Syphon bottle. Marketed in the Czech Republic by Merkuria (Praha, CZ) and in the US by ACC (unk distributor). It's designed to make/handle one litre of seltzer.

This is a heavy glass bottle with stainless/aluminum mesh, rubber base, and a seltzer head. In the photo below, it looks like the one on the right:


It is dated 1982, so it's obviously used. Being supergeek, I'm dismantling, decrusting, and otherwise refurbishing it to usable state. Overall it's in pretty good shape.

The threaded collar screw and admission valve gasket are both in bad shape. The collar screw was seized and I tore it up a little during removal. The gasket and its replacement are both semiliquid.

http://www.fantes.com is the only place I was able to find repair/replacement parts.

So, no use of it for NYE, but in 1-2 weeks I should have a happy bottle with chargers and gasket.

Or actually, for my b-day, I'd happily take one of these:

Though, then I'd need to get processors and memory and drives for it, but whatever.

The guy base-jumps from a chopper.
he has webbing between his arms and his body.
He glides down the side of a mountain, steers around some rocks, and pulls his chute some 10kft down and lands on his feet in the snow.

Must see.

Bobby posted a BASH.org article that's also amusing.... things you'd rather your bank not really know about you.

WOOT! First time I've ever beaten a game.
I beat the lava level in MW3. DUH! The brown stuff is water! WOOT!
Then, the shuttle level, I needed jump jets to go over the mountain and sneak up behind.


No, I'm not still awake.
This is a recording.

It's the birthday of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the auth or of the Sherlock Holmes series.

You want Fries with that?
"Occasionally during the use of imported potatoes from Belgium and northern France, ordnance debris from the First and Second World War is found," McCain said in a statement.
But it's only .03% they say.
The British government has confirmed it wrongly branded around 1,500 innocent people as criminals because they had similar or identical names on a police database. "We make no apology for erring on the side of caution. We are talking about the protection of children and vulnerable adults," a Home Office spokesman said.

My neighbor accidentally put a .44 Magnum round though my wall. It missed my head by three inches. It started in his bathroom, went through the mirror, went through the closet on the other side, blew through that closet door, traveled across his hallway, blew through our common wall, richocheted upward off my computer desk, and lodged in the doorframe.

Seek Truth - cool photoshop pics. Since it's anti-tobacco, I'm OK pointing people to the cool pics.

BTW... Wendy's has an awesome commercial. It's "Satisfaction", you know... "Push me... and then just touch me, until I get my, satisfaction... " and some flangey synth plus a thumping bass.

So... the whole commercial is that song, with a 5-band EQ made of multi-stack burgers, spinning and dancing around.

I'm SOOO impressed. We have some camera shots, of a projection TV. So, if anyone has a GOOD copy of that, lemme know.
