(Very) Random Fun Stuffs [Apr. 30th, 2010|10:40 pm]

You may have already seen this video game mashup..
Super Mario Bros for More NES Characters. There is some perverse nostalgic aspect to playing that game as Samus Aran. Love it. :D

The Swiss army has their knives but the Chinese army has... SHOVELS!

I've never been so enthralled by a shovel. You can chop trees with it? Damn.

Finally... Are you as much of a space geek as I am? Enjoy the Apollo 11 liftoff once again. This time, from a single pad cam in soooooper sloooow mo!

Has some really interesting and informative narration. Yay. :)

That's exactly how I felt! :)

"Wow, that's impressive... efficient... of course, it's still just a short-handled portable shovel and -- A GRAPPLING HOOK! Dude!"

That Apollo 11 video was AWESOME! Incredible power from that thing.

We really need to get that space elevator constructed. SO much more efficient ;-)

It's the first one that's tough. After that you can use it to help build the rest of them. ;)

The function that impressed me was the wire cutter. That's a really useful military task that most shovels can't do. They understandably failed to demonstrate how to use one as a chair.

I just had to see what happened next with that entrenching tool.

The Green Berrets have something similar to that shovel.

wow, I will now look at my shovel with greater respect.

I have never been a fan of space exploration. I have always thought that we should stay here and solve earths problems first. but I would be lying if I said that the science behind it all doesn't intrigue me.
