How Rich Are You Compared To The World?

A friend of mine emailed me this interesting link. It’s the Global Rich List. It was developed by a company in London called Poke who create interactive media. I like the idea. It’s simple, it’s straight to the point, and it puts things in perspective a little bit.

What this site does is take how much you make then it gauges how rich you are by calculating how many people in the world have more money than you have. It’s a simple calculation and you’d be surprised where you end up on the global scale.

Currently, I don’t feel rich, but I live in a nice place, I have cable, internet, gaming systems, a smart phone, drive a good car, eat in good places, and I am mostly satisfied with my needs like food, clothes, shoes, gadgets, toys, etc… Read more of this post


I Don’t Want Exercise!

I have an issue with Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo.

Since the Wii came out, and nowadays the Playstation Motion, and Microsofts Natal, I’ve formed an opinion about them all. The Wii was a gimmick. Something new, something fun, something cool. The Wii let you flail your arms, rotate your wrists and do all sorts of things with it that you couldn’t do before. Then, this magical motion control started to wear off for me. I started to get tired of standing up to play and swing my arms and shoot imaginary zombies.

Then Playstation and Microsoft saw this and needed something like that to tap into this Read more of this post

The iPad Will Support Flash (one day)

Apple Vs FlashUsers that own the iPhone, iTouch, and iPad know the limitations as well as the endless application of their gadgets. I’m not going to write about that (there’s enough about that on the internet). I’m here to offer an opinion on an issue that’s been coming up every now and then. The issue is that Safari on the iPhone, iTouch, and iPad does not support the Flash player.

The internet is full of flash based websites. Games, animations, applications, and interactive sites are created in a rich media that is visually stunning with endless possibilities for designers. Flash is rising in popularity and continues to grow now that it’s under Adobe.

Apple is clamping down on their support for Flash. The claim it’s due to security reasons that Adobe has to fix in their Flash product.

I think that’s bullshit. and here’s why Read more of this post

SeaWorld Killer Whale Should be Put to Sleep!

Why is SeaWorld keeping their whale?

It’s a sad thing to hear when anyone loses their life doing something they love. Recently on the news we heard about an incident involving a killer whale and it’s handler Dawn Brancheau. The latest bit of news I read about this is driving me a little insane and maybe someone can help me understand this better. I read today that SeaWorld is deciding to keep the killer whale that killed Dawn Brancheau in a freak incident where she was dragged underwater. (SeaWorld to keep orca –

WHY? Why are they keeping this dangerous whale at SeaWorld? They say they’re going to change how handlers deal with the whales and prevent them from petting it. Really SeaWorld? What if this animal was a dog, a wolf, or even an Elephant? Wouldn’t those animals be put down? What gives SeaWorld the authority to determine if this whale shouldn’t be put to sleep or not?

This is How Lost Will End

Lost is what happens to you when you watch the show.

All you Lost fans, this is the biggest spoiler on the earth for you. I’m about to tell you how Lost ends. Yes. I figured it out while I was playing backgammon with my friend the bear who came to visit me for the weekend, while I was staying on a little Island off the coast of nowhere.

I’ll try to explain this as simple as I can.

Locke (the fake Locke, aka MIB) found a loophole that let him kill Jacob, and on his way to get his freedom by winning this game that never ends. We all think that Locke tipped the balance of this game and he’s on his way to win/lose the damn thing because apparently it’s been a tie for thousands of years.

Darpa Makes Some Crazy Shit!

Oh Darpa, you've done it again.

Darpa, the creator of all things that’s absolutely awesome (and dangerous) is creating a new way to allow people to communicate with each other using neural signals.

What this means is that people will be able to transmit their thoughts or “talk” to each other without actually talking.Now, being Darpa, this is supposed to be used in the battlefield. This sounds brilliant.  This would be an amazing technology to use for special ops, people on the ground during covert operations, and people who for some reason aren’t able to speak for whatever reason (loud gunfire, explosions, etc…)

And then it hit me. Guys think about sex a million times each day. It’s on their minds all the time. They think about ass, tits, and all sorts of stuff even when they don’t want to.  How is Darpa going to handle the sick minds of individuals? People have twisted minds and who knows what kind of telepathic message some poor guy is gonna get from his buddies on the field.

So the program is called Silent Talk (U) Silent Talk and “will allow user-to-user communication on the battlefield
without the use of vocalized speech through analysis of neural signals.”

Darpa, you amaze me.  Now where can I get one of those Darpa Mules?

My Brother Reviews The Wolfman

Who's afraid of the big bad wolf?

Last weekend my brother went and saw The Wolfman starring Anthony Hopkins and Benecio Del Toro. He gave me a quick review of the movie in a few words that summed it all.

He said “It’s kind of like that movie where the guy gets bit by the spider and turns into Spiderman and it’s all awesome, except that the guy gets bit by a wolf and it sucks.

I just want you all to know that if I was walking in the dark night on a full moon in the middle of a creepy ass forest and a wolfman bit me, next morning, that wolf would end up turning into me.

That means he’ll go out and do some crazy shit in the middle of the night and howl at the moon and won’t remember anything the next day. Except he’ll be hairless, better looking, and more awesome than he’ll ever be.

Health Promotion Fail

Adventures in Sex City characters. Notice Captain Condom on the right.

I ran across this game called “Adventures in Sex City“. It’s an online flash game created by the Middlesex-London Health Unit.

Their goal is to “promote wellness, prevent disease and injury, and protect the public’s health through the delivery of public health programs, services & research“. That sounds pretty noble, until I saw this freaking game they created.

It’s supposed to be used to educate people about safe sex. Isn’t that just great for today’s youth? Learning something helpful while playing a game. So smart, yet the execution of this was TERRIBLE!!! Read more of this post
