ok... Now how does that cost to buy....

So bombing along and I run into this off a cracked article...
So this guys got some metal working skills and likes swords...
and not that replica crap you can buy!
Stuff you can swing (sort of... if you have arms like hawsers)

The buster sword
Masamune
The sword from "Berserk"
its the flick blade...
And if you don't liek swords...
A fucking repeater crossbow

Now they may look silly. and not very effective.. but they are funny as hell
Also the swords if you look close are actualy pretty good craftmanship. Plus! I researched a bit. they are full tang and made from real steal. Not aluminum or some shit. these things could actualy take a battering. Now they are totaly impractical... But heck that would be one hell of a wall piece.

He's also got a kick ass accent.

Well gosh Darn it who'd have guessed

So reading them the riot act...

***

Legal Implications of the "Riot Act" Proclamation
The Archambault and Drumheller riots have given rise to much discussion concerning the proper amount of force that should be used in order to suppress a major disturbance. Within the Criminal Code of Canada there are provisions relating to unlawful assemblies and riots which apply equally to public as well as penitentiary disturbances. These provisions, among other things, outline the amount of force that can be used with legal justification in a riot declared situation.

The purpose of this article is to briefly examine the so-called "Riot Act" and to highlight the legal and practical considerations that accompany the reading of it. When can the "Riot Act" Proclamation be read? The "Riot Act" proclamation referred to in section 67 of the Criminal Code may be read by a Justice of the Peace whenever twelve (12) or more persons are "unlawfully and riotously assembled together". The term "riotously" refers to the tumultuous disturbance of the peace. Since these words are subject to interpretation, a brief examination of the terms "unlawful assembly" and "disturbing the peace tumultuously" is warranted.

A review of the relevant provisions of the Criminal Code and related jurisprudence reveals that an unlawful assembly occurs when at least three (3) or more persons assemble and form a common purpose, and there are reasonable grounds to believe that there will be a tumultuous breach of the peace: See Regina V. Thomas [19711, 2 WWR 734 (B.C. Co. Ct.). In Regina V. Kalyn, (1980) 52 CCC (2nd) 378 (Sask. Prov. Ct.) the court held that if the assembly is tumultuous - that is, the disturbance is caused by a multiple of people and consists of more than just noise - then it may be deemed riotous. However, the assembly is riotous, at the latest, when force or violence begins to be used or where there is an attempt to overpower peace officers who are performing their protective duties.

The "Riot Act" proclamation, when used, must be issued in the following words or words to the like effect:

"Her Majesty the Queen charges and commands all persons being assembled immediately to disperse and peaceably to depart to their habitations or to their lawful business upon the pain of being guilty of an offence for which, upon conviction, they may be sentenced to imprisonment for life. GOD SAVE THE QUEEN".


Who can read the "Riot Act" Proclamation? Pursuant to the provisions of section 67 of the Criminal Code, the so-called "Riot Act" proclamation may only be read by certain individuals such as justices of the peace, provincial court judges, mayors, and sheriffs.


This isn't old and not used. This was USED YESTERDAY! and is current and legal law. Sometimes the old shit is the best shit!

good follow up



A bit wobbely off the start, but finds her stride and goes with gusto

OK YOU HAVE TO TRY THIS!

Left or right brain test. This is not a joke or a trick. I can get her to go both directions. It just takes finding your triggers to get the left or the right dominate. I'm a right brainer.

Left or right brain test

Free your mind

This is a sort of ramble no real point no real message:

Was listening to some Micheal Jackson just a few minutes ago and then some Elton john, then hop scotched over to some Metalica, and then mellowed on some Pavoroti. I'd just like to say thanks to my parents for a quality upbringing music wise (Mad props to you awesome gene doners!).

1. Why is i t I can love MJ's music but can't stand the man.
2. I would love to catch a Elton 10 years ago concert.
3. I wish i had never lost those 6 gigs of music back at apt 810.
4. Is manslaughter legal when it pertains only to Soulja Boy?
5. NEVER read the comments on Youtube when listening to MJ or EJ
6. America's got talent and Britain's got talent.. you can really tell who's the second child.
7. Puzzle games ARE NOT to be played at work, as the hours between 1am and 4 am can attest to
8. God damn the garlic bread from Pizza pizza is good!
9. See # 5 again
10. We need more Rocked Out Operas. Get it back into the main stream

I need a hobby... any suggestions?

Sorry Tyler didn't call you back .. See #7

Gonna see if i can get the Anti-twitter working again

I've been watching a crap load of random stuff lately. The space shuttle daily videos of the repair to Hubble. A shorter and less detailed version of the at Astr 160 thing I posted before. Just not as much into it as the teacher is not as good as the Yale guy. That and reading crap loads of Manga online (Mangafox is a really good site with no reading limits like Mangaotaku. but updates a little slower and the scans aren't as good sometimes)

The LHC will be op and operational soon, MUHHAHHHAHHHAAHHAHhhahahhaaa

Playing Mass effect again is nice. Finaly got to do the Biotic all the way up. Major investment char. but by the end you fucking destroy everything in seconds flat. Better than the soldier which rocks the first part but really chugs at the end cause you have to really on the morons (NPC's) for their powers cause you have none.

Wish that game had a co-op!
Make the levels WAY harder, but have two non-morons! that would rock!
The new "bringing down the sky" addon was very nice short and easy.

Fuck its 5 already. have to clean up the office and finish the paper work.

Noodles~!

“Who are we? We find that we live on an insignificant planet of a humdrum star lost in a galaxy tucked away in some forgotten corner of a universe in which there are far more galaxies than people.” Carl Sagan

"The greatest paint brush of man can not compare to the waxing whimsical of the natural universe in its intricacies and raw beauty." Unknown

“The cosmos is a gigantic flywheel making 10,000 revolutions per minute. Man is a sick fly taking a dizzy ride on it.” Henry Louis Mencken

“When science finally locates the center of the universe, some people will be surprised to learn they're not it.” Bernard Bailey

"The human mind is not capable of grasping the Universe. We are like a little child entering a huge library. The walls are covered to the ceilings with books in many different tongues. The child knows that someone must have written these books. It does not know who or how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. But the child notes a definite plan in the arrangement of the books, a mysterious order which it does not comprehend, but only dimly suspects." -Einstein

"Equipped with his five senses, man explores the universe around him and calls the adventure Science." Edwin Powell Hubble

Thus began the 2009 Quote wars...

First salvo



Lets see what you marmite eating toaster monkeys can hit back with, huuuha!

Second step

Tsukikage Ran is a very nice simple Anime series with funny little episodic plots and not "MASSIVE LONG SILLY NAMED ATTACK POWER" sequences.

or Samurai Champloo for more advanced swordiness (with a bit of the above mentioned silliness, not much though, and a bit of modern day creeping in)

lastly Afro samuari finishing up the selection (this ones full of ballsacking the historical time frame)

I have Lung Cancer, TB, Syphilis, Cunsumpstion, Malaria , Swine Flu, But the apartments clean!

I have just spent the last ... Aeon cleaning the apartment, I can see the floor!
All while nursing a nice cold, Sucking down cart loads of dust, cat hair, and god knows what else. Now to sit back and enjoy the clean apartment and take a nap.

WRONG FOOL! YOUR NOT DONE YET!

Still have to stay up cause the beds in pieces cause they have to spray the fucking matresses. Then after that wait till 8 am to vaccum, drive the cats over to Ty's to hold, drive back, Off load the recycling and any none-chut compatable crud out to the locked shed (which only opens at fucking 9). Then after that wait for the contractors to show up. Wait till their done, go back to Ty's then... Fucking die.

But on a nice side, the computer station never looked better. Just have to get a camera to show you. It looks... Majestic, and fucking scary, now just have to get the old main comp with a working graphics card and get that up and running, and it will be complete!

Oh and to leave on a downer... the new cat carrier I picked up doesn't work.
But thats my fault... I bought 2 lids not a lid and bottom. fuck. time to squeeze 3 cats into a very small space.

Bork Bork Bork

Incoming Pseudo-rant

Why is it i'm on youtube and I'm watching tv shows from almost 10 years ago?
With the exception of top gear, mythbusters and smattering of others.
I find I just don't care for 90% of the shows out there on tv.

For example I found a Firefly clip just a few days ago on Youtube and was like:
Shit that was good show..
Oh fuck 2002...
That as 7 years ago...
Christ where the time go.

I think I can name maybe 8 shows in the last few years that I watched more than 2 episodes of:
How i met your mother (Thanks to gthe guys for that)
Sarah conner chronicals
Pain killer jane
Dexter
Family guy
Doctor who (the new one)
Torchwood,
Robot chicken
And these are just a few, and trust me the rest of the list is not much longer.

But even those are a few years old now.
I don't watch TV so my "viewing pleasure" is severaly limited.
But really the ones I do watch tend to be really good (at least what I find good). It really makes me wonder just how much crap they just sand blast at the regular viewers in the hope that some of their crap sticks.
I'm just one demographic (burgoning middleaged geek with a love for anything that goes boom, or is moderatly shiney) think of all the other they have to pander to.

- Tenny bop girl that thinks she'll grow up to be a fashion icon
- Middle age wife that has a child surgicaly attached to her hip.
- Office drone that wishes they had a diffrent life style, but have to be up at 6am
- Old people
- People that watch CNN to get all their news, but only watch the headlines
- Soon to be old people
- People who like watching people change their lives by getting out of the box.

All and all I have to give major Kudos to the tv companies for doing what they do. Even if the majority of it is horrible filth mongering.

Following that laugh...

sometimes technology can produce beautiful art just takes the right eye to see it.




Had a chat with a Co-worker about what is art and isn't. He's a firm beliver that "computer" generated art is not real art. I believe that art is simply a term to define something that provokes a reaction from you. Good, bad, large small, theatre, movie, painting, comix, stories, it doesn't mater. It is art. If it doesn't get a reaction from you it may still be art, but for you it has failed at its purpose. Some find 3 bars of color to be somehow thought provoking. I do not. Doesn't mean its not art, just means it is aimed to segment of the populace that somehow gets a reaction from it (be it... a small segment of the populace)

I watched this small video of rendered lines of light that are built from the flight paths of planes. I thought it was very beautifull.
Would I put it on the wall... No.
Do I concider this art... Yes.

No real point here, just expressing a feeling (or trying to)

I pissed my pants




And for god sakes don't be drinking anything when you listen to this

Run hammster run

At times you do what you have to for your children.

On July 22, 2007, during severe flooding, Hammond left his Porsche 911 - in which he had been stuck in traffic for 13 hours - to run home for his daughter's birthday. He ran 16 miles (26 km) in two-and-a-half hours (from 3am to 5:30 am), arriving home before his daughter woke up.

Full thing here

Their silly, their funny, but those simple blokes really are some the best guys out there.

Amendum to "beautiful"

Was doing some poking around and ran across this. you'll know the part where my mouth dragged on the floor.

Armstrong died of a heart attack on July 6, 1971, at age 69,[35] 11 months after playing a famous show at the Waldorf-Astoria's Empire Room. Shortly before his death he stated, "I think I had a beautiful life. I didn't wish for anything that I couldn't get and I got pretty near everything I wanted because I worked for it."[36] He was residing in Corona, Queens, New York City, at the time of his death. He was interred in Flushing Cemetery, Flushing, in Queens, New York City.

His honorary pallbearers included Governor Rockefeller, Mayor Lindsay, Bing Crosby, Ella Fitzgerald, Guy Lombardo, Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie, Pearl Bailey, Count Basie, Harry James, Frank Sinatra, Ed Sullivan, Earl Wilson, Alan King, Johnny Carson, David Frost, Merv Griffin, Dick Cavett and Bobby Hackett. Peggy Lee, one of Armstrong's favorite vocalists, sang The Lord's Prayer at the services

The mighty Satchmo can still floor me, and this time without even singin a word.

Clarkson and Hammond go on walkabout



Note:
When referring to Topgear Amarica, he's referring to NBC not taking the show when he says "they just didn't get it"

Your fucking dreams ( as made by BMW )



it also has EYES!!!!

And now for something completely different... and beautifull.

Ok, you have my attention Mr. Boom Boom Bay



Now DON'T SUCK!

We can rebuild him, better, faster, more broken...

Due to a change in HD format at Youtube. Embeded vids (in HD) no longer work well with blogger... SO I have gone to a more stripped down version until I can find another work around.

Viva la Revolution!



I hope this turns out, and doesn't fuck up like the HD vid from before.

Yes... I am a NERD! and so are you.

So a ran across a video while punting around Youtube. The posters name really caought my attention.

Yalecourses.

Thats right. Freakin Yale!

The original video was about black holes and I was hooked.

This is a video taping of ASTR(160) at yale.
The teachers funny and I like his sense of humour.
Also you learn a fuck load about finding exoplanets, blackholes, and other funky stuff. The math level is about grade 9-10 so isn't that hard, and the teacher hates "Android math" so the math goes fuzzy/fun at parts.

The links are hard to find (yale didn't make following the course flow easily, so I've done it for you)

1. Introduction
2. Planetary Orbits
3. Our solar System and the Pluto Problem
4. Discovering Exoplanets: Hot Jupiters
5. Planetary Transits
6. Microlensing, Astometry and other methods
7. Direct imaging of Exoplanets
8. Introduction to Black Holes
9. Special and General Relativity
10. Tests of Relativity
11. Special and General Relativity (cont.)
12. Stellar Mass Black Holes
13. Stellar Mass Black Holes (cont.)
14. Pulsars
15. Supermassive Black Holes
16. Hubble's Law and the Big Bang
17. Hubble's Law and Big Bang (Cont.)
18. Hubble's Law and the Big Bang (Cont. 2)
19. Omega and the End of the Universe
20. Dark Matter
21. Dark Energy and the Accelerating Universe and the Big Rip
22. Supernovae
23. Other Constraints: The Cosmic Microwave Background
24. The Multiverse and Theories of Everything

Warning These are 45 minute a piece, don't expect to wiz through them in a day. But contained within is just a monumental load of nify information about just about everything space and geeky.
