Paper display

Here's an article about a flexible video display that Sony is working on. Apparently it is a combination of TFT and electroluminescent display technology. Electroluminescent is a cold light backing which takes very little electricity like you would use on a security vest. Sony is showing off a 2.5 inch flexible prototype display using the technology. Call me when I can actually buy it 5 years from now.

A Sad Story

So I was driving home from class tonight. It all seemed pretty normal to me, and i defiantly wasn't expecting what was about to happen. There I am just listening to my tunes when all of the sudden, out of the corner of my eye, I see a gray blur shoot out into the road. I Didn't have any time to react, I immediately swerved to the right and off of a 3543654...136541354135 story bridge. On the way down i could see the cat had fallen too. I knew what i had to do.... I opened the car door and braced my feet against the console inside, and pushed myself forward with all the strength i could muster. My body reacted immediately and launched towards the helpless feline with unimaginable speed(i have pretty strong legs) just managing to take it into my grasp. Now then there was the little problem with me rapidly plummeting towards the ground that still had to be dealt with. My mind quickly began to consider every option, each idea being discarded in turn. Finally i left with a single idea that, while unlikely, just might work... but it would be risky (not any riskier then falling to my doom i might add). I bid my time as i waited for my opportunity to put my plan into motion. As i looked down I could see the ground hurdling towards me, it was now or never. I took my free arm and stretched it behind me as far as i could while at the same time curling my fingers tightly into a fist. "here goes" i muttered to myself. a split second before colliding with the ground I punched my forth and struck the ground with the white hot intensity of a thousand exploding suns. the force was enough to destroy a mountain and a gargantuan crater was left in the spot where my fist had struck.... but it had worked. " WE MADE IT " I cried to the kitty still in my arms but what i saw caused my heart to break and tears to flood forth. timmy the cat (I felt he should have a name) had moved on from this world. I don't know if he was killed from the car or caught in the crossfire during my skirmish with the ground, but I do know is that it was all my fault :((


So i have been Emulating old psx/gba/everythingelsethatcanbeemulated games for the last few months and I'm starting to run out of games. anyone have some suggestions on "must play" games. doesnt matter the platform as long as it can be emulated.


Some of you like me may have grown up watching The Six Million Dollar Man, but how about an $8,000,000 iPhone? Stuart Hughes, the British jeweler known for his expensive remakes of popular gadgets, is at it again, this time with a diamond-clad iPhone 4 with a price tag of 5 million pounds, or roughly $8 million.The handmade bezel contains approximately 500 individual flawless diamonds that total more than 100 carats; there’s 53 additional diamonds in the back, and the main navigation button is made of platinum, holding a single cut 7.4 carat pink diamond. If you know diamonds, all of this probably means something to you; to us, it just sounds really, really expensive.

Only two of these will ever be made, so don’t worry: if you buy one, the chances of bumping into someone who has the exact same phone at a party are quite slim.  And to think I am afraid to drop my current iPhone, with this one I would need a bullet-proof case!

So the woman in this photo went for her first solo skydiving jump for a good time. Only one problem. Her main chute did not deploy after she jumped. Then after cutting off her main chute the secondary chute did not deploy correctly. She landed face first in a parking lot going 50 miles an hour. The story doesn't say but I assume they jumped from maybe 10 thousand feet up. Face first into a parking lot. Think about that. She survived with only a few broken bones (and some major jaw work) to find out that she was pregnant. The news story also says there is a video of her face planting into the parking lot so maybe it will show up on the net at some point.


For anyone who hasn't seen yet. I was actually surprised to see this on TV
....well for a second anyways then I proceeded to laugh my ass off.

What's in a Blog?

So, a blog huh?

It's kind of an odd concept to me when I really think about it. Now don't get me wrong, I mean there is nothing really wrong or strange about a blog itself. What I should have said was the act of writing a blog itself odd. The things running through my head as I attempt to type something even remotely entertaining seem actually quite discouraging when I really stop to think about it. Are people gonna care what I am talking about? Does my post actually make sense? Is there possibly any more room for me to stuff a few more grammatical errors in before I hit that bright orange "publish" button at the bottom, signaling my triumph over this writing assignment? (Perhaps assignment is the wrong word, this blog was not assigned but is actually my own idea)

... I dunno guys. I guess looking at the number of view, or followers is a bad way to determine if this is worth my time (I mean this blog has only been live for what, 5 minutes?). I suppose I will settle for dedicating this space to my ramblings and watching the pretty words appear on the screen as I type them.

Buuuuut I digress
Maybe something will come of this blog and some people will actually read it. Maybe not... It's whatever, and either way its a good way to clear my thoughts.

Perhaps my next post will be more then me rambling WHO KNOWS

Do you believe in "atheism"?
