Recent News

Well now that I am reestablishing myself back in the blogging dimension I decided to make today's post about the recent activity going on in the world. I got a couple of links to stories that you guys can check out.

First one is about a young botswana boy chased and stabbed with a spear for trying to run away from his own circumcision ceremony -

 Second ones not so recent but I just saw it and damn. Its Micheal Jacksons tombstone, it might look how you expect it -

Third one is a slight bit more serious, just a random but whatever, its about "1st ever Western-made film to air on TV" in North Korea -

Fourth one is a interesting, it talks about a study showing that conservatives have a larger "fear center" then there less conservative counterparts -

Fifth and final one is about buzz aldrin, the astronaut, and how hes trying to sue some trading card company because they made an "American Hero" card without his authorization -

Back in Action

Well it has been almost a month without making any posts. Originally I stopped so I could focus on finals but once I was done with those I ended up getting my laptop stolen. It was a hectic story but I'll just leave it up to your imagination, lets just say it happened in the ghetto of long beach. So I missed the obligatory 'Merry Christmas' post and lost a couple followers, completely understandable. I thought I should post something before the new year so here you go people.

Lets start with some random Christmas Statistics and Christmas jokes so when your so when your at that new years party you have interesting to say!

1 - The Largest gift ever is the statue of liberty which the french gave to the US in 1886, its 151 feet and 1 inch tall. (Ok, maybe that's not that interesting...)
2 - 85% of the artificial trees in the US were manufactured in China.
3 - Heart-related deaths jump 5% during the holiday season.

1 - A Jewish Santa Claus came down the chimney and said: "Anyone want to buy a present?"
2 - Q: Do you know why Santa dosen't have any children ??? A: he only comes once a year and thats down a chimney ...
3 - Why was Santa's little helper depressed? Because he had low elf esteem.
4 - What do you get when you cross a snowman with a vampire? Frostbite.
5 - When you stop believing in Santa Claus is when you start getting clothes for Christmas.
6 - The 3 stages of man: He believes in Santa Claus. He doesn't believe in Santa Claus. He is Santa Claus.

I apologize again for my blog being absent of new posts, school has been rather hectic recently and I haven't had much down time. Its just going to get worse when finals start next week so I'm just going to tell you that I WILL NOT BE POSTING MUCH FOR THE NEXT WEEK or so because I need to be studying and whatnot. I decided to do this last post before I go on my blogging break, its on human ingenuity and creativity. Here's a bunch of pictures showing how creative and awesome we humans are. And yes, there are no art in this post because I think it is more challenging to create something with a purpose nowadays then to draw a picture.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Z1 'PlayStation Phone' Revealed

So sony has finally decided to make its way into the cell phone market. This is a video that shows the layout and menu screens. There is no show of the graphics but I assume its going to be good because play stations has usually been known for good graphics. I recommend muting this video because there is no sound of the phone, its just a lame song playing.

Holographic FIFA games to broadcast?

So I just read an article on CNN about japans plan to broadcast the next world cup in 2022. I took out some parts that are pretty interesting.

"At the heart of Japan's bid is a plan to broadcast entire games to stadiums on the other side of the world in what appears to be life-sized holograms... Japanese organizers say each game will be filmed by 200 high definition cameras, which will use "freeviewpoint" technology to allow fans to see the action unfold from a player's eye view -- the kind of images until now only seen in video games.
 Meanwhile on the terraces, supporters will be able to use in-ear computerized translators to talk freely to fans from other countries -- a device that mimics the "Star Trek's" universal translators or the Babel Fish of "Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy.""

 If your intreiged then heres the full article.
