hueg spider disrupt space shuttle!

1188566.jpg

Holy cow!

A giant spider attacked the Atlantis space shuttle as it attempted to blast off.

At least that’s how it appeared when a spider crawled onto Nasa’s launch camera at Cape Canaveral in Florida.

For 26 seconds, it could be seen on webcam appearing to take a bite out of the shuttle as it sat on the launch pad awaiting lift-off.

Then, just as abruptly as it appeared, the spider wandered off screen.

The Atlantis launch was eventually delayed – although the magnified arachnid was not to blame.

Faulty fuel tank sensors, a problem that has plagued Nasa since 2005, forced controllers to delay the mission until January 2 at the earliest.

Santa arrested by Imperial Stormtroopers

SANTA’S FACTORY, North Pole (Agencies) – An Imperial Stormtrooper commando broke into Santa’s Factory on the North Pole yesterday evening, killing an undetermined number of elves, arresting the owner and confiscating his sled. Joe Kwazansky, local spokesman for the Evil Galactic Empire in Los Angeles, appeared in a press conference this morning confirming the rumors of an Imperial takeover of Christmas’ celebrations. “The Emperor wants to assure His subjects that Xmas will continue as planned. The pug-nosed fatso, however, will pay for his crimes,” Mr. Kwazansky said amid the palpable shock in the press corps. Apparently, the arrest has occurred in connection with earlier reports on the manufacturing and stealth placement of Weapons of Mass Destruction:Answering questions about the causes of this assault and Santa Claus’ detention, Mr. Kwazansky pointed out that Imperial Intelligence had undeniable proof of Santa’s production of WMDs at his factory located near the North Pole. “He is also a perv, you know,” he added, “a guy who goes around his house clad in red velvet and has underaged boys assisting him all day long. Illegal sex? Forced labor? You gotta be kidding. We have the patent on forced labor too. Ask the wookies.”

the daily life of santa.

“I’ve always preferred seeing my saints, icons, and saviors not as omniscient beings, but just average people like the rest of us. That being said, if you were Santa, had hundreds of servants doing your bidding, no boss or government telling you what to do, and had all the time in the world, I’m sure you’d end up just like this.” -Mark Velasquez

fun with tesla coils!

*
Check it — twin tesla coils playing the Super Mario theme!

The cool part is, there aren’t any speakers involved — the coils produce the sound via a midi played through a laptop.  (Yep, I can’t explain it.)  And wow!  Now we know that if tesla coils could talk, they’d have electric fart voices.  🙂

If you can’t view the youtube video, check out this link.

If you ever played Red Alert 2, this would be a familiar scene:

And, the cool thing is — there’s no photoshop involved!  More explanation in the official page.  (Plus, if you check out other parts of the site, there’re a lot of neat experiments!)

(Thanks to Mikko for the great finds!)

Yip. Went out, basically a food run a couple of miles off. (Plus it’s a neat little inside joke between me and Andrea, the devourer of all chicken.)

I like ending my week with ABriefMessage. It’s a neat little idea.
