Metroid Prime 3 Tomorrow!!!


I just watched the review on IGN and it looks amazing - like a 360 game. Now two things must happen before tomorrow:
1) I have to beat Bioshock
2) I have to figure out which games I should sell back to buy MP3

Anyway, all the reviews are calling it the best game for the Wii so far, and as it's my second favorite Nintendo series behind Zelda, I must have it.

Space/Time Travel is Here




'We have broken speed of light'

By Nic Fleming, Science Correspondent

A pair of German physicists claim to have broken the speed of light - an achievement that would undermine our entire understanding of space and time.

According to Einstein's special theory of relativity, it would require an infinite amount of energy to propel an object at more than 186,000 miles per second.

However, Dr Gunter Nimtz and Dr Alfons Stahlhofen, of the University of Koblenz, say they may have breached a key tenet of that theory.

The pair say they have conducted an experiment in which microwave photons - energetic packets of light - travelled "instantaneously" between a pair of prisms that had been moved up to 3ft apart.

Being able to travel faster than the speed of light would lead to a wide variety of bizarre consequences.

For instance, an astronaut moving faster than it would theoretically arrive at a destination before leaving.

The scientists were investigating a phenomenon called quantum tunnelling, which allows sub-atomic particles to break apparently unbreakable laws.

Dr Nimtz told New Scientist magazine: "For the time being, this is the only violation of special relativity that I know of."

If you arrive at a destination before leaving, then aren't you in the past, and you still have somewhere to go? Then you try and leave again but end up further in the past? I can't think about the implications of this too hard right now. Kevin?

Its Friday, I'm in Dubb

Whilst the beginning of the weekend has probably set in for most of you Easterners, here is some good reading material to take up some time and perhaps entertain you whilst on this weird planet:


Man attacked in Karaoke bar by woman for singing Coldplay song - further proof that Coldplay is one of the worst fucking bands of this century.

$10 Million-Dollar Burger: Allergy-prone man sues McDonald's for putting cheese on his Quarter Pounder - couldn't the guy have double-checked the burger for cheese FIRST maybe? This guys lawyer should be executed already for making the world a stupider place to live in.

Deep thoughts

We have first person shooters, and third person shooters, but what about second person shooters? Is it even possible, and what would it look like?
