That is very weird indeed, but did you follow the links to the Cthulhu Cthusday Film 'Cast A Deadly Spell'
: Cthulhu Cthursday
Cast A Deadly Spell is the best Lovecraftian film adaptation to date, anyone that argues that point with you either hasn’t seen it or is an imbecile unworthy of your time. The film centers around Phillip J. Lovecraft, a detective in a 1940’s Hollywood where magic and monsters are not only real, but common. Everyone, from housewives to CEO’s use magic, everyone except Phillip J. Lovecraft that is. It is my dubious honor to present you with the film, a favorite of mine for years, in its entirety, for today’s Cthursday thanks to the piratical inclinations of some benevolent soul. Don’t say we never gave you anything.

: Re: Cool Stuff On The Internet Part 3: The Revengening
: Captain Shortworth April 25, 2008, 09:49:31 PM
That isn't Cthulhu scary. Just crazy person scary. My post was about the idea that a universe where magic and monsters are not only real, but common. Everyone, from housewives to CEO’s use magic, isn't scary for the people in that world in the same way that it would be scary for the people who would be surprised by magic and demons.

Lovecraft works because people don't know about demons. How can a Lovecraftian movie be scary if people know about it?
: Re: Cool Stuff On The Internet Part 3: The Revengening
: badgerish April 26, 2008, 03:12:43 PM
I've seen 'cast a deadly spell' and have an almost complete digital copy.  (just poked the link and seen the embedded copy)
I'm not sure i'd fully call it "lovecraftian" or scary, apart from the ending (which is scary because it's (within the context of the movie) feasable end-of-the-world).
But, as a fantasy take on "It's 1940's America, but magic REALLY WORKS" it's great!  Magic as tool: win.  Magic as weapon: win.  Fred Ward: win.

So it keeps a character sheet that pretty much tells people the kinds of sites you visit?
I dunno... the idea of a public browser history sounds like the worst idea ever to me.  Not to mention that it seems to kind of encourage you to visit certain sites.

If you've ever played Nethack and played Doom, but wondered why those two great, completely incompatible game styles have never been combined, there may be hope (http://doom.chaosforge.org/).

 Cows are more cost effective food if you consider the effort saved because you only have to kill the dumb animal once.
Potentially you might have to kill a cat several times to use up its lives and finally only get a small amount of meat .
 ( You can save your own efforts obtaining cat food by buying a fastfood curry though ) ;)

I have loved almost all of them but this (http://www.quickstopentertainment.com/2008/07/06/smodcast-56/) was by far and away the funniest.

All because most Americans no longer have the energy to do anything but lie back and allow ourselves to be jacked off by the calculating thieves who run this grasping consumer paradise we call a nation. (http://www.smirkingchimp.com/thread/17504)

also

Democracy doesn't require a whole lot of work of its citizens, but it requires some: It requires taking a good look outside once in a while, and considering the bad news and what it might mean, and making the occasional tough choice, and soberly taking stock of what your real interests are.

Best.

I hate to burst your bubble, but every time science claims to have found a food or drink that fights cancer it never works outside of the lab. There are too many things that would run counter to the tiny amount the beer could do to fight cancer. I wish ot were true, but it is just another case of bad science being reported in the press.

No, he just remembered what happened last time, the feeling at the time was Chaimberlain had negotiated a fantastic treaty to avoid war, no one truly knew how terrible Hitler was, apart from maybe Stalin who was as bad - and even he had to be convinced when the germans began Barbarossa

Also, the fall of France showed it wasnt a question of numbers, the BEF and the French Army had more then enough men in the field to stop the germans dead, but were using strategies 20 years old, worse a lot of the lessons learned in mobile warfare at the end of the first war had been abandoned again by western generals, and the soviet army had no experienced officer corps left after Stalin had purged them

Chamberlain takes the rap for his "peace in our time" treaty, but I think he is badly represented given what was known at the time and the general feeling.

If you want to point fingers, look at successive governments during the Spanish Civil War who activly and passivly aided the fascists (and vicariously Hitler) in Spain, showing Hitler that the western superpowers had no stomach to stop him.

Better yet, blame the French whose humiliating, crippling demands at Versaille in 1918 made the next war inevitable.

Oh, and reading that article it seems that the stumbling block was the soviet army occupying Poland was a stumbling block to our polish allies, and given the sovereignty of Poland was the final straw two weeks later, its a hollow offer of aid really.

There ends todays lesson on the root causes of the 2nd World War.

A society that tells us to remain clean-shaven. Most of us haven't had the guts to resist this society's oppressive demands. But since 1947, the fine fellows of the Handlebar Club have stood up to such sinister, homogenising forces in the only way they know how. By growing enormous moustaches.

: Re: Cool Stuff On The Internet Part 3: The Revengening
: Ant December 10, 2008, 10:50:39 AM
This ammused me

A Japanese company ( Toyota ) and an American company (Ford) decided to have a canoe race on the Missouri River. Both teams practiced long and hard to reach their peak performance before the race.

On the big day, Toyota won by a mile.

Ford, very discouraged and depressed, decided to investigate the reason for the crushing defeat. A management team made up of senior managers was formed to investigate and recommend appropriate action.

Their conclusion was Toyota had 8 people rowing and 1 person steering, while Ford team had 8 people steering and 1 person rowing.

Feeling a deeper study was in order, Ford management hired a consulting company and paid them a large amount of money for a second opinion.

They advised, of course, that too many people were steering the boat, while not enough people were rowing.

Not sure of how to utilize that information , but wanting to prevent another loss to Toyota, the rowing team's management structure was totally reorganized to 4 steering supervisors, 3 area steering superintendents and 1 assistant superintendent steering manager.

They also implemented a new performance system that would give the 1 person rowing the boat greater incentive to work harder. It was called the 'Rowing Team Quality First Program,' with meetings, dinners and free pens for the rower. There was discussion of getting new paddles, canoes and other equipment, extra vacation days for practices and bonuses.

The next year Toyota won by two miles.

Humiliated, Ford management laid off the rower for poor performance, halted development of a new canoe, sold the paddles, and canceled all capital investments for new equipment. The money saved was distributed to the Senior Executives as bonuses and the next year's racing team was out-sourced to India

The End

Here's something else to think about: Ford has spent the last thirty years moving all its factories out of the US , claiming they can't make money paying American wages.

TOYOTA has spent the last thirty years building more than a dozen plants inside the US. The last quarter's results:

TOYOTA makes 4 billion in profits while Ford racked up 9 billion in losses.

Ford folks are still scratching their heads.

The new Fiesta does look fairly nice, but it seems like 2008 has been the year of the hot hatch, and there is some pretty tough competition for it now. The Abarth 500 is particularly spiffy:

And Top Gear mag has nominated the VW Scirocco as it's favourite car of the year, which isn't much bigger (or more expensive) than the Fiesta...

I have read a more up to date article about that family and they have had their children removed temporarily by child services. There was no reason given, but apparently the father denies the holocaust and the house has lots of nazi memorbelia (please forgive my spelling, I am not well :-( )

Those parents need help!

Speaking of fine English Prose

One of my favourite occaisonal reads is Tom Fodyce's BBC online coverage (http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/cricket/england/8032933.stm) of test cricket

Mainly for comments like this:

From Ken Williams, TMS inbox: "I wonder how much of your commentary would be in any way comprehensible to the average foreigner who knows absolutely nothing about cricket? for instance: 'Baker goes round the wicket to Cook and sends square leg back. Short one coming? Ah-ha - it's the in swinging yorker. Cook, bright-eyed and bushy both of tail and eyebrow, digs it out.'

"Is it possible to get a more incomprehensible statement? I'm just going to have to show it to some of my French colleagues here. The only words they would understand are Baker and Cook."

Test Cricket, the most bizzare and beautiful of sports. And oh so very English, 5 days of play, result, a gentlemanly draw.

This is probably just so they can use the characters to base rides on without having to worry about licenses etc. That and they have been for years looking for a franchise that appeals to boys much in the way the Princess lines appeal to girls, I think Marvel covers that demographic nicely.

QFT.

Cold Haily Windy Night is one of the best pieces of music ever, especially the opening.

Good call on Tamlin too.

Fantastic concept as well.

I havent clicked on the link, but is it "English, Half English" by any chance?

Nuclear micro batteries...


Now a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away I did quantum physics at Uni and so I can say this report is a pretty awesome breakthrough, liquid semiconductors. Thats the important bit...

The first step has been made.

Given the fact the problem is size of semiconductor, will we see a battery where we need replacement semiconductors to keep them working at prime charge?
: Re: Cool Stuff On The Internet Part 3: The Revengening
: Jeeves October 09, 2009, 12:39:21 PM
Well Kwon claims that the liquid semiconductor should last beyond the battery running out of power unlike its solid bretheren which suffer to much wear and tear in power extraction. But saying that he also claims with enough development they will eventually be able to produce effective day to day use batteries that are as thin as a human hair...  how much R&D required to get to that stage hasnt been specified though lol dont think its gonna happen on our lifetime  :-\
: Re: Cool Stuff On The Internet Part 3: The Revengening
: Ant October 09, 2009, 12:54:46 PM
Maybe, maybe not.

Given the advances in more traditional batteries in the last 10 years I wouldnt bet against it happening in the next decade.

The need is there, the first breakthrough is made  - if its possible it will happen.

Bugger.

Ah he wont mind...

: WarbossKurgan
The Gloomwyrm
Also known by it’s Cathayan name the Serpent-Dragon of Twilight Aspect, the Gloomwyrm is a Cathayan Orc Pirate Junk commanded by Captain Mung-Qi and festooned with dragon-muzzled cannon. The Gloomwyrms are a fierce band of cutthroats and villains who joined the Ironfang Pirates willingly when they first saw the size of the fleet.

(http://i654.photobucket.com/albums/uu263/WBKurgan/Pirate%20Orcs/Monkey/WIP/HPIM7541.jpg)

(http://i654.photobucket.com/albums/uu263/WBKurgan/Pirate%20Orcs/Monkey/WIP/HPIM7540.jpg)

Mung-Qi (Orc Boss)
Arrogant, boastful and conceited he calls himself “The great Orc Pirate Warlord Mung-Qi, equal of Gork and Mork, Captain of the Gloomwyrm Pirate Junk, scourge of the eastern seas” but most people find that a bit long-winded and pompous and just call him Mung-Qi. He wields a great two-handed iron cudgel, stolen from the treasure-horde of a sea dragon. Mung-Qi doesn’t know it but the metal staff is forged from meteoric iron, and as a result it is almost unbreakable and slightly magical. He also wears what he thought was the legendary Crown of Command, but he was duped into putting it on by his Shaman and it is not what he claimed it to be. The golden circlet looks impressive but Mung-Qi would remove it if only he could.

(http://i654.photobucket.com/albums/uu263/WBKurgan/Pirate%20Orcs/Monkey/WIP/HPIM7542.jpg)

Tricky-Tarka (Orc Shaman)
Sly, secretive and deceitful, even by Orc Shaman standards, Tricky-Tarka has final say in all the decisions the Mung-Qi and the Gloomwyrms make – all he has to do if he doesn’t get his way is recite a secret spell and the “Crown of Command” shrinks slightly and causes Mung-Qi unbearable pain! The Shaman is searching Cathay for the Scrolls of Mork and is using the pirates for his own ends.

(http://i654.photobucket.com/albums/uu263/WBKurgan/Pirate%20Orcs/Monkey/WIP/HPIM7537.jpg)

Xan-Dee (Orc Big'Un)
In his former life as a river pirate Xan-Dee developed a taste for human flesh and he still wears several skulls hung from his cloths and lank hair. The Gloomwyrm was attacked by his small band of river pirates when it ventured up-river many years ago but Xan-Dee’s crew were swiftly overcome and killed. Xan-Dee was impressed by the ferocity of the Gloomwyrms and joined them immediately.

(http://i654.photobucket.com/albums/uu263/WBKurgan/Pirate%20Orcs/Monkey/WIP/HPIM7538.jpg)

(http://i654.photobucket.com/albums/uu263/WBKurgan/Pirate%20Orcs/Monkey/WIP/HPIM7543.jpg)

Pig-Xi (Orc Big'Un)
Once a Boar-herder for a northern tribe of nomadic Orcs, Pig-Xi got fed-up with the constant abuse of the rest of the tribe and the relentless biting from the boars. With a very large bag of supplies packed he left the camp in the dead of night when the tribe stopped near a coastal port. He joined the Gloomwyrm’s crew when he heard they were sailing at dawn. He is easily distracted by food and drink and enjoys little in life more than eating.

I found this on the interwebs and it related to the former labour leader Neil Kinnock's speech in the week of the 1983 election....this seems quite fitting today.


If Margaret Thatcher is re-elected as prime minister on Thursday, I warn you.

I warn you that you will have pain–when healing and relief depend upon payment.

I warn you that you will have ignorance–when talents are untended and wits are wasted, when learning is a privilege and not a right.

I warn you that you will have poverty–when pensions slip and benefits are whittled away by a government that won’t pay in an economy that can’t pay.

I warn you that you will be cold–when fuel charges are used as a tax system that the rich don’t notice and the poor can’t afford.

I warn you that you must not expect work–when many cannot spend, more will not be able to earn. When they don’t earn, they don’t spend. When they don’t spend, work dies.

I warn you not to go into the streets alone after dark or into the streets in large crowds of protest in the light.

I warn you that you will be quiet–when the curfew of fear and the gibbet of unemployment make you obedient.

I warn you that you will have defence of a sort–with a risk and at a price that passes all understanding.

I warn you that you will be home-bound–when fares and transport bills kill leisure and lock you up.

I warn you that you will borrow less–when credit, loans, mortgages and easy payments are refused to people on your melting income.

If Margaret Thatcher wins on Thursday–

- I warn you not to be ordinary

- I warn you not to be young

- I warn you not to fall ill

- I warn you not to get old.

An excellent piece of rhetoric whatever you politics.

and still utterly applicable to todays tories...

Yeah, thats been in the pipeline for some time, the original idea was for it to be mounted alongside a normal AR but weight and heating were issues so they have clearly revised its concept to a squad support weapon.

The EXACTO thing is cool...volleys from a .50 cal sounds like they might be a bit lethal with that system...wonder how long it would take to put them on an aircraft...or air defence artillery.

This process took place in a safe, controlled environment, generating incredibly hot and dense sub-atomic fireballs with temperatures of over ten trillion degrees, a million times hotter than the centre of the Sun.
Point 1: Hadouken!
Point 2: I'm not sure what's more impressive.  That they've done this or that they have access to a place which can contain something a million times hotter than the centre of the sun but still be considered "safe and controlled".  God, I'd pay a lot for a decent walking tour of that facility

Just so long as this doesn't usher in subatomic flamethrowers.

There was an interview on the BBC breakfast show when they first turned the power on a year or two back and there was some bloke saying it was all a waste of money and "man was prying into things man was not meant to know"

And Prof. Alex Cox (IIRC) who is the poster boy for physics at the moment.

The stuff Prof. Cox was saying had come out of the whole project was staggering, not just power switching, super conductors, improvements in computing and data storage (hell even the internets are from CERN) but also insulation and cooling systems.

Not only do they create temperatures a million times hotter than the sun, but they also create places that are litterally the coldest places in the GALAXY! Their coolant systems on the superconductors are actually colder than the deep space between the galaxies, which is just a smidge warmer than absolute zero!

Utterly staggering.

Amusingly, it isnt yet running at 100% power. Mainly because the entirity of France (who is a net exporter of power) cannot generate enough to crank it up to 10 just yet.

: Re: Cool Stuff On The Internet Part 3: The Revengening
: padre March 02, 2011, 09:43:28 PM
He didn't set fire to Panama - the Spanish did (as they fled) so as to make things more difficult for the looting Buccaneers. The place was made of wood (the richest houses of cedar) so it went up pretty quick.

One of the other ships that went down was the Port Royal. But I like the name of the Spanish ship that the inhabitants of Panama had put most of their precious belongings on (a LOT of stuff) and sent to sea 'for a while'. It was called La Santissima Trinidada.

Still, even without the best of the loot, the Buccaneers still managed to plunder 400,000 'peso de a ocho'. Sounds good, yeah? But there were so many Buccaneers to share it out between (over 1,000 if you include the guys left behind to guard ships and canoes) meant that it came to £20 each. let's just say Morgan's pirate army was not too happy with this meagre sum!

And then they gut you with a spoon, or in this case a tripod...

I think my favourite apocryphal tale of the Ghurkas is about Mount Tumbledown in the Falklands

For those that don't know it, the mountain was held by strong argentine forces and both the Paras and the Scots Guards had tried to take the mountain and been beaten back with heavy casualties. To solve the problem the British Field commander called up the RGR and let the argentines know the next assault on the mountain would be by the Ghurkas.

The argentines promptly surrendered.

I like the one about the parachuting Gurkha. as a group they did a bunch of practice drops from step ladder height to make sure they knew how to fall well. Once the commander was happy they were told they would be going up in a plane and practising from 200 yards up. After a quick discussion the Gurkha sergeant comes back and apologises, saying that that was too high, but they would be willing to try 100 yards. When informed that that would not give the 'chutes time to open, the dude smiled and said fine, they would do 200 yards up. He hadn't realised that they were allowed parachutes and suggested 100 yards as something worth trying without them. Just as apocryphal as Ant's, but I do like it.

I think the answer of "they are puppets, they have no sexuality" is perfectly acceptable.

Why label them to fit some notion of gender bias to suit a specific interst group? To be serious, surely it's a better way to promote tolerance and acceptance to have them simply exist as they are, free of labels, judgements or pigeonholing?

Political correctness isn't about giving people non offensive labels, it's about removing labels entirely.

I saw a similar thing with a guy wearing body armour being shot. It was cool stuff, like scale mail Kevlar and other stuff.

As an aside I also read some fascinating/incredibly nerdy stuff about what's called "shatter distances" in which a bullet is fired close to a wall or something, and when it hits the wall it is carrying so much energy still the material of the bullet isnt resilient enough so it just breaks up into dust, but s bit further out and it would have punched right through said wall. The US government have apparenty spent loads researching it following experienced in Iraq and Afganistan where combats are typically in urban areas at short ranges.

Well I though it was interesting.

Scary?  Nah.  I've been waiting for this kind of technology to appear for most of my life.  I'm totally ready to be connected to the collective consciousness/hive mind/whatever.

Although if it's anything like the apps store, I reckon there'll be a deluge of "Terminator Vision" apps.

The scariest thing is the first model you see on the BBC site wearing the specs. *shivers*

Seriously though, that's pretty cool techno, though most of it you could probably already acheive on a current mobile phone... but it would obviously be hand-held and voice activated.
The official ad-vid doesn't actually explain (that I can see) how the apps/icons are activated. Is it just a case of looking at them?

What I'm waiting for is an ocular / audio and even full sensory bypass system that allows data from head-set sensors to be plugged straight into the brain, apps and programs activated by body motion, skill-set learning by memory implants, muscular , organ and mental augmentations, etc, etc...

This will start happening when the Computer Tech and Bio-Tech gene-splicing guys and such all get their heads together.

This will also herald human expansion into the stars - computers nursemaiding the next stage in evolution... manufactured DNA. Then we -as a race - can balls-up more planets. Avatar anyone?

Have I gone too far again?

The story behind that one is a little reminiscent of the story of the creation of the Total Perspective Vortex from the Hitchhiker's guide.  Got linked to it on Facebook, some physics researcher has this thing knocked up at his home but didn't have the nerve to turn it on until he had an argument with his wife and turned it on while he was blowing off some steam.

Except in this version, he doesn't annihilate her brain.

From youth I have been seeing maps of fantasy worlds in all sorts. As an altar boy I saw maps in the church carpet as I stood daydreaming during holy mass, as a youth I saw maps on the pavements and clouds. As an adult I even saw maps in the tiles above the urinals. I have even occasionally used such 'found' maps as the basis of actual maps.

Somewhere along the way I must have seen a map in a coffee cup. But taking it to that extra stage is indeed genius.
