FURRIE’S VS KLINGON’S: BOWLING!

 

 “Pity the warrior who slays all his foes.” As many of you are probably aware, the internet is full of peculiarities. Most of these are harmless, some are not; and still others are so bizarre – though not in an offensive way – that they come an instant cult classic. One such classic, is Furrie’s VS Klingon’s: Bowling. “Brute strength is not the most important asset in a fight.” On the 29th of September, 2007, at the Midtown Bowling Alley in Atlanta, Georgia, U.S.A, a battle of skill and wits was fought between the two deadly foes. The Klingon’s fought with honour and achieved a victory worthy of Qo’noS. (32 – 27.) The great battle caused little hype on the Internet, […]

ZOMBIES: Fact, fiction, or theoretical possibility? PART 5

 

 Rule 3 – “Always carry a minimum of 2 reliable, lethal weapons.” Welcome to this, the last in our five part look into all things zombie. Last week we looked at the end of civilization. In little over 38 days after initial infection, most of the human race would be some form of zombie, and the world we know would be gone. But what if you were one of the lucky ones? What if you survived, what would you do then? Well a number of people have given this a lot of thought. Over the past decade, dozens of books, manuals, videos, and survival kits have been created to deal with this possibility.  Rule 10 – “Only pull the trigger […]

BOOKS: REAL OR FAKE?

 

 “It’s a very Greek idea, and a very profound one. Beauty is terror. Whatever we call beautiful, we quiver before it. And what could be more terrifying and beautiful, to souls like the Greeks or our own, than to lose control completely? To throw off the chains of being for an instant, to shatter the accident of our mortal selves?” – The Secret History by Donna Tartt. Those words are very haunting. And indeed, in this age of technological advancement, those words are ringing truer and truer. Has our quest for technological beauty destroyed our very souls? As I look at my library, a veritable mountain of books, I am awestruck by their beauty, their majesty, their slowly decaying pages […]

DLC: Quality VS Quantity?

 

 Do you remember the 1990’s, and the early 2000’s? I do. I remember the glory days of purchasing video-game expansion packs. The thrill of taking the box off of the shelf; the delight in purchasing it; the anticipation of opening the box; the overwhelming joy as you removed the CD case, manual, and other contents; the joy of installing a proven product that added more to your game. I miss those days. DOWNLOADABLE: Over the past few years the world has become more connected, and marginalized. We no longer have to leave our homes to purchase items. Films, music, games, even food and other services can be easily purchased on the internet. But with all this convenience there comes a […]

NETIQUETTE: What the hell is it?

 

 What the hell is it? “One person’s clever joke is another person’s offensive insult.”   Netiquette – Etiquette for the Internet. I know what you are thinking; they do seem to change the language every bloody day. To be honest, I had never heard of the word “netiquette” until I began this article. So what can I tell you about Netiquette? A lot apparently. Although netiquette is a relatively new concept. It has quickly grown into a transdimensional, multi-limbed, rabid, foaming at the mouth, social hydra: an insane beast with more teeth than the Osmonds. (If your over 30; you MIGHT get that joke.) Since its arrival, netiquette has remained in a constant state of flux. Laws, bi-laws, counter laws, […]
