Today is double post day! Not because I didn't post a entry , but because I can't sleep and actually using this blog for it's intended purpose. Now first off I wasn't able to write up a post yesterday due to catchIng a particularly nasty virus and having to leave my computer in safemode and with the Internet turned off to prevent reinfection and for some reason my virus scan always take a ton longer in safemode vs non safemode were talking 12 hrs for a complete scan vs 28 hrs ..... SO here it is almost 5 am and I've been laying here trying to sleep for the past 4 hrs to avail.. Well I got a good topic for lateron after I got some sleep in me and my eyes cease to feel like they are having needles. Shoved thru the back of em,

So here's to another attempt at sleep

Special Weekend Edition!

Well I usually won't make weekend posts but today's the exception to the rule. I'm at my aunts house for a BBQ , and they brought it this weird game called "Ladder Ball" , it's this PVC 3 rung ladder with a wide base on the bottom for stabiliy. The top rung is worth 1 point , the middle is 2 points ,and the bottom rung is worth 3. You throw these two golf balls connected by a nylon climbing rope at the PVC ladder setup from 15ft away , first player to 21 wins.
                                                                             The exact version of ladder ball I played
Now I found this game to be fun,and can be played with ages 5-95 I guess, cause the ball rope things are very light weight and can be disassembled for transport.

Well I'm going to go eat some mOre food.Enjoy your weekend!

Picture to follow when I'm on an actual computer

US Military certify unity technology

US Military certify unity technology

A brief note on what Unity is, a development environment for flash-like games except it supports 3D graphics a lot better, along with it being more intuitive to use then Flash,
Currently , all the only uses I have seen for unity has been games,

crashdrive-3d @ www.kongregate.com
like the one I have linked above.

Well now it turns out the Military is interested in this technology for their training simulators, using the above link you can see why. That game was produced by what i assume to be a one man team. Imagine what a development team could make.

(Unity requires instalation of the unity plug in provided here on the unity site ->

Enjoy your weekends everyone !
I'll be back on Monday!

E3 Skyrim Demo

The above is the E3 demo for Skyrim, the new Elder Scrolls game. In a sentance, I am amazed, if the graphics look like that on a 360, i can only imagine what it will look like on a decent gaming computer.My apologies to all the 360 readers, but I like PC gaming.
But I digress,It looks to me atleast like they took the best from Oblivion & Morrowind, and some new mechanics and combined it all , and gave us what looks to be an AWESOME game! I will definitely be hiding in my house and calling out sick from work for the entire week, or atleast one the release day.

Theres an App for That!

According to the Escapist,
when Apple means "Theres an App for That!" there is truth to the slogan. The United States Military has developed an App on the IPhone to teach its Patriot Missile crews.

It seems that as technology becomes further and further ingrained in our lives, a shift away from traditional booklearning is taking place.

If you insist on asking the UN for a "no fly zone over Libya" realize who is going be the one enforcing most of the zone, The US. Now you hate the United States for shoving our way into everyone else's business then bitch and moan about that, but then later ask us, by proxy mind you, to help you out with something such as a "no Fly Zone". Make up your mind. We either can stay to ourselves like Ive heard many wish we would, or we can stay involved in everyone's business and help everyone out. World, The choice is yours.


Post rage edit: With a exception of our British allies, Usually when the UN needs something enforced it usually falls mostly on to Americas plate

For those who might be living under a rock or who havent seen the news headlines everywhere. Japan had a 7.2 earthquake hit off their north east shore, sparking tsunamis warnings for the entire pacific region. Id sure hate to be living on Hawaii right now.

Earthquake news story

For those affected, run for high ground . For those who aren't , continue with your daily schedule.

I just gathered this off google,
Recent earthquakes near Japan
Time Magnitude Location
6 hours ago 6.6 Near the west coast of Honshu, Japan Map
19 hours ago 7.1 Off the east coast of Honshu, Japan Map
20 hours ago 8.9 Near the east coast of Honshu, Japan Map

Teach me to only read one article.... thats all the earthquakes in the last day involving japan.

Musicians as a profession have one of the highest deathrates of any profession out there. But due to the lack of statistic tracking, they never appear on any infographics like the following one for the year of 2009.

In the chart above, its written as Fishing,Logging,Pilots& Flight Engineers have the highest chance of dying on the job.

But looking at history, look back at all the stars from the 50's to the 80's. How many of them are still around today? Not many at all. Just a couple of notable names,that I can remember ,who died from activities linked to their professions.

James Dean - Died from car crash(icon from the 1950's)
Johnny Cash - Attacked by ostrich,(didn't die, just thought it was funny he got attacked by one)
Jimi Hendrix - Died from overdose
Elvis Presley - Died from overdose

In the middle of searching for more names and causes of deaths, I stumbled across this website.


Average age upon death of Rock Star - 36.9 Years.
Average age upon death of American Citizen - 75.8 Years.

So here ends my rambling for this evening,Just some food for thought before the next celebrity dies.
