That's all I wanted to say. Thank you blogger! It pays to blog!!!

Metal Storm

I have seen the future and the future is fast. I'm not kidding. The title on this is no joke. I'd heard of million round per minute weapons, but now I've seen them. Test firing of 180 rounds in just over a hundredth of a second - they sound like one round fired.
It's something you kind of need to see to believe, but if you don't have a fast connection, forget it. The files are huge (over to 330 megs all together), but at least read and check out the pics.
Jaw-droppingly amazing, but a little scary at the same time. Also, fully electronic "smart" handguns. Choice of lethal/non-lethal rounds and thumbprint recognition. That way, you can't get shot with your own gun. You could still get beat over the head with it though.

Tin-Foiled Apartment

Okay, so you have a buddy who needs a place to stay, and you let him crash at your place. New Year's eve - you go out, he stays home. He gets bored, decides to play a prank on you. You get home and find your entire apartment wrapped in tin foil. And I do mean entire.
That's the story, the pictures are here.

Check it out! Your screen is not fuzzy, it really is a car made out of Legos. Specifically, a VolvoXC90.

And you thought you had it bad. Check out this true story of a man who has been stranded in an airport for more than ten years.
Weirdness factor: 8

Very weird - right after I read this story this story, I found out that Tom Hanks is starring in a movie that has suspiciously similar plotline. Check it out - art imitating life! As they say, truth IS stranger than fiction.

Hmmm...interesting piece of news that I haven't seen on any of the main stations - al-Qaida activity.
And about those WMDs? Nothing yet, but check out some MIGs buried in the sands of Iraq.
How does stuff like this not get more widely reported? How come we don't hear about it?
Okay, I tried it and it worked. Open a new Word document and type in "= rand (200,99) " - no quotes. It'll take a second, but it's an amusing easter egg (secret code in a piece of software).
Oh, found it on this site.
