U.S. Map According To Where Movies Took Place~

Woops. Big enough to be read version HERE~

This is a map of the United States according to movies that took place in the various states. As you can see, 'What about Bob?' took place in, uh, what is that, North Hampshire? Okay so I failed geography, big deal. Also, my most recent drug test, which means I have to report back to the clink on Monday. Ha, Monday. Like I'm not gonna wake up there tomorrow! Love the smell of a holding-cell in the morning. Getting teabagged, not so much~

Politician Accuses Opponent of 'Big Fat Boners'~

The Cutest Lil Robocop You Ever Did See~

One of the favorite flicks of my youth was Robocop. Sure, the second movie kind of sucked, but I’d buy the original for a dollar. The premise was out there for the time when it came out but it’s a geek classic right up there with TRON in my book. So when a dad and his kid were looking online for ideas for a robot Halloween costume, this is what they came up with~

Authentic Vader Costume To Hit Auction Block~

Want a movie-worn Darth Vader costume? Start digging through the couch cushions for spare change! Then rob a bank. Then rob a jewelry store. Then rob another bank~

"An exceptionally rare Darth Vader costume comes up for sale next month and is expected to fetch as much as 230,000 pounds ($365,000), auctioneer Christie's said on Wednesday.

The main components of the 1980 costume, including the helmet and mask, are considered to have been production-made for "The Empire Strikes Back," the second of the "Star Wars" series to be released, Christie's added"

"While there are limited public records of the costumes produced and used for the first Star Wars trilogy, the helmet, mask and shoulder armor from the present example have a provenance leading back to the film studios around the time of production," Christie's said~

Superman's New Look~

"The new Superman will appear in "Superman: Earth One," a graphic novel by writer J. Michael Straczynski and artist Shane Davis that retells the superhero's origin story. While the iconic superhero retains his dark mane and defined six pack, he now has a decidedly more emo vibe -- pale, leaner, and brooding. (No need to get too worked up, Superman loyalists: This new graphic novel series doesn't replace the original comics, but rather will serve as a "reinterpretation" of his younger years.)

The Superhero Universe seems to have been increasingly influenced by what could be termed the "Twilight Effect," as Wonder Woman was given a similarly "edgy" makeover in June when her "bustier and hotpants" were traded out for a blue biker jacket and a trendy new hair style.

In the words of the New York Post, the new Man of Steel "wears hoodies" and "has smoldering eyes"; and as Clark Kent, he wears low-cut pants and skinny ties"~

NASA, DARPA's 'Hundred-Year Starship' Space Program Aims To Put Humans On Other Planets (And Leave Them There)~

Want to go to Mars and stay there? Everybody else wants you to. Including NASA and DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency), who are drawing up plans for the 'Hundred-Year Starship' program, which, if successful, will leave humans on alien planets for good. Uh-oh. Time to eat your protein pills and put your helmet on!~

"The first planet in sight? It may be Mars.

Worden expects the program to take off within the next two decades. "I think we'll be on the moons of Mars by 2030 or so," Worden said, according to Kurzweil AI.

So far, NASA has contributed $100,000 to the project, and DARPA has chipped in $1 million, according to Gear Log. That isn't nearly enough for blast-off, but Worden hopes to convince additional individuals to invest.

"[Google co-founder] Larry [Page] asked me a couple weeks ago how much it would cost to send people one way to Mars and I told him $10 billion, and his response was, 'Can you get it down to 1 or 2 billion?' So now we're starting to get a little argument over the price," Worden said~

Excaliber, The World's Tallest Climbing Wall~

Towering over 121 feet in the air (37 meters) and with an overhang of 36 feet (11 meters) the Excalibur at the Klimcentrum Bjoeks (Bjoeks Climb Center) in the town of Groningen, The Netherlands, is considered to be the tallest climbing wall in the world. As long as you don't take into consideration mountains, cliffs or other man-made structures not specifically designed for climbing. The curved design results in sections that are easy for beginners to tackle, as well as some extremely difficult parts where experienced climbers will literally find themselves hanging~

Well here she is working it on stage Britney Spears style provided Britney is a no-talent hack who can't do anything but waddle around on stage waving her arms, which is by far the most accurate comparison I've ever made. Now, does anybody else think there might actually be a person in that robot costume? Let's set it on fire and find out~

Japanese Demaeki vs. Roller Coaster~

Uploaded by japanmaster3. - Discover more webcam videos and video blogs.

In the cramped and crowded cities of Japan, most fast food delivery shops rely on motorcycles or mopeds to deliver their food. To keep food from spilling or getting messed up, delivery bikes are equipped with a stabilizing device called a demaeki (出前機). As bikes twist and turn, the demaeki keeps food from tipping over and spilling~

Here is a clip from a TV show that tested to see if a demaeki could prevent a bowl of noodles from spilling on a roller coaster ride~

Virgin Galactic's Enterprise (Spaceship To The Rich) Makes First Solo Test Flight ~

Virgin Galactic successfully tested their suborbital spaceship over the weekend. Just not in space. Baby steps, yo! Haven't you seen What About Bob?~

On Sunday, the Enterprise was carried to an altitude of 45,000 feet by a larger "mothership," and was then successfully released for a long, slow glide back to the Mojave Air and Space Port. The solo test flight is a step towards the day when the Enterprise will carry not only test pilots but also six space tourists up to the edge of space, where they'll experience a few precious moments of weightlessness and a killer view~

When it eventually enters service, Enterprise will be carried to its launch altitude by the "Eve" carrier plane before being released in mid-air. Enterprise will then ignite its single hybrid rocket engine to make the ascent to space. Although Eve and Enterprise have made several test flights together, Sunday was the first time the spaceplane had been released at altitude~

A seat on the Enterprise will cost $200,000, and apparently people are willing to pay up: Virgin Galactic has reportedly taken deposits from 370 customers thus far~

Willy Wonka '3-Course Meal' Gum A Reality?~

Remember the scene from Willy Wonka where Wonka shows those ungrateful little turds the gum that has a three-course meal packed inside? Well apparently a non-nutritive version of the gum is on it's way. Damn girl, your breath be kickin'. *sniff* IS THAT ROAST BEEF?!

"Researchers have developed a technology that allows different flavours to be captured inside microscopic capsules, which can be designed to release the flavours at different times~

"Some of the capsules could be filled with flavouring for tomato soup that would break open on contact with saliva, while tougher capsules would contain the flavour for roast beef that would break open as the gum is chewed. A final flavour for blueberry pie could be packaged in capsules that require vigorous chewing to burst:~

But what happens if you toss a piece in your mouth and immediately start masticating the shit out of it? Exactly, you get all three flavors at once. Then -- THEN -- a bonus flavor. Probably vomit~

Well, Spider-Man, Emma Stone Is Playing Gwen Stacy, It Turns Out~

A statement released last night has confirmed that while Stone is in the film, it's actually Peter Parker's first love, Gwen Stacy, she'll be playing--beating out numerous blonde actresses for the part of a character whose physical appearance is almost entirely defined by being blonde. Seems off, yeah? Not so, says director Marc Webb. It turns out she IS blonde! (WHAT) Also, CHEMISTRY:

" The chemistry between Andrew and Emma was stunning and made Emma the clear choice. At the heart of the story of Peter Parker is not only the amazing Spider-Man, but also an ordinary teenager who is wondering what he has to do to get the girl. Andrew and Emma will bring everything audiences expect to these roles, but also make them their own. Much to my surprise, it was fun to find out that our choice for Gwen (Emma) is also a natural blonde."

I mean, they'll still have to bleach her hair and everything to get all that red out and turn her into the platinum blonde Gwen Stacy, but maybe it will be comforting that you can whisper to the stranger beside you at the theater, "You know, that's actually closer to her actual hair color than the fiery hair she's most famous for~
