Crazy Russian Hacker shows how to open any can using only a piece of cement and your bare hands. And it’s easier than you think. I suddenly feel a lot better about much better about my chances of surviving the coming nuclear warfare/ global pandemic/ extraterrestrial attack/ cybernetic revolt/ technological singularity/ supernatural phenomena/ divine judgement/ climate change/ resource depletion/ and/or any other general disasters.

I JUST started watching Walking Dead last night. I was always a fan of TALKING Dead, see, but it just wasn’t making sense so I finally gave in and watched last night’s season four premiere. Imagine my rapturous surprise when I saw sweet little Kyle Gallner on my TV screen! Impulse from Smallville! BEAVER from Veronica Mars! I LOVE HIM! Unfortunately, my joy was short-lived. SPOILER ALERT: He didn’t make it past his third scene before being bitten by zombies, then crushed by a falling plane. Which seemed a little harsh. Other than that, though, I enjoyed the episode. I liked the poking of the zombies through the fence. I liked the teacher showing the kids how to stab zombies. I thought I was going to like the little Harry Potter kid until SPOILER ALERT, he turned into a zombie at the end. I didn’t know you could just spontaneously turn like that. Has the zombie virus gone air-borne? Anyway. As I have no context for last night’s episode, why don’t YOU tell me: Was it any good? Better than usual? Kind of boring?
We all know the story. How the machines rose from the ashes of the nuclear fire. That their war to exterminate mankind raged for decades, but the final battle started here, in our present. And it begins TODAY. Scientists in Europe have put together a “standardised knowledge base for robots,” through which robots can exchange information with other robots using cloud computing. It’s called
Skynet RoboEarth and it “paves the way for rapid advances in machine cognition and behaviour, and ultimately, for more subtle and sophisticated human-machine interaction.” Did you just get chills? According to Gawker: “The breakthrough system will allow robots to become lighter and simpler, lessening the amount of computing power on the robot itself. Robots will be able to query RoboEarth for solutions to newly encountered problems. The theory is that the advancement and learning of one individual robot will benefit all the rest. Faced with a newly laundered towel for the first time, a robot could query the RoboEarth database and instantly know it wasn’t a T-shirt and needed folding differently – after first learning how to do the ironing, naturally.” AND SO THE FALL OF MANKIND BEGINS WITH IRONING ROBOTS! Who knew?
Omg, we’re all DOOMED! It’s true: Nostradamus predicted that Psy’s “Gangnam Style” would herald the coming apocalypse! ”From the calm morning,” he wrote nearly 500 years ago, “the end will come, when of the dancing horse, the number of circles will be 9.” Could he be any clearer? The word Korea translates to “The land of the morning calm,” the horse refers to the dance, and the nine circles refers to the number of zeros when the song hits one billion hits on YouTube. And many people believe it could hit one billion on December 21 aka THE DAY THE MAYANS SAID THE WORLD WOULD END!
