The Regretful FPS Player

November 15, 2009/0/0/

I’ve always played video games. From the seven year old kid messing with an Atari 2600, to the uber geeky jock that loved playing R-Type on the Commodore64 as much as a good pickup game of basketball, to the highschool student that literally lived through the Kings / Space / Hero’s Quest games, and the […]

Husband Allergic to Wife

November 2, 2009/0/0/

Darren Young, 45 year old bus driver in UK, is allergic to his wife, but only when she wears certain creams and lotions. The reaction is quick and deadly, his body swells up and his heart can stop too, if the amount of chemical is large enough. Unfortunately, this chemical is rather commonly used in […]

The Americans invested millions of dollars creating a pen that would write in outer space. The Russians used a pencil. Frenchman, Hubert Chalet, has a rather curious preventive measure for Swine Flu- Sign Language!

Superman Physics Explained

October 18, 2009/0/0/

It’s a bird. It’s a plane. No… it’s a scientific paper explaining Superman’s Super Powers! Okay not really. The paper by Ben Tippet makes a few blatant suppositions and then using them builds a rather a strong hypothesis. Now I don’t claim to understand all of it. However, this is the gist in the author’s […]

Birth Control Pills Terminate the Schwarzeneggers

October 14, 2009/0/0/

According to British scientists, women on birth control pills are less attracted to the quintessential macho men. Strong, rugged looks give way to men with feminine features. The Johnny Depps and Orlando Blooms are preferred over the Vin Diesels and Daniel Craigs of the world. This may spell good news for all the slackers who […]

World War Z : Brain Food

September 30, 2009/0/0/

Move over George Romero, your zombies are pups compared to what Max Brooks has created. World War Z, an Oral History of the Zombie Wars, is more shocking than anything you’ve ever read or seen, because it seems so real. The novel is made up of a series of interviews of survivors from around the […]

Which Batman Alignment Are You?

September 19, 2009/0/0/

In my experience, the typical medical student shifts in alignment based on varying amounts of sleep deprivation, hunger, sense of irony and the urge to mate. Thanks to the folks at Comics Alliance for this.

Is it Just Me, Or are Casual Games Becoming More Intelligent?

August 20, 2009/0/0/

So I’m addicted to Space Invaders Infinity Gene on the iPhone. This is probably the first game that has really opened up the possibilities of my phone as a mobile gaming platform – I mean I dabbled with Real Racing and The Secret of Monkey Island (SE), but I keep coming back to SIIG. My […]
