Step 1 –  Have kids

Step 2 – Do everything in this video with them, and upload it to YouTube:

  • Getting your kids to swear?
  • Swearing at your kids?
  • Treating weapons (presumably unloaded) like toys?  Bayonets even are affixed on a couple of them.
  • Whore? Bastard? Asshole? MFer? That girl doesn’t look a day over 10.

Maybe I was just raised differently but everything about the video makes me cringe.

For those that don’t know, the video is from blog commentor Juan-A-Be-The-Luchador and owner of the blog Guns For Everyone.  We exchanged a couple of emails in the past, and he seems like a good guy but this video has my WTF meter reading 11.

Also, i’m not very worldly but I have no idea what that Mexican (wrestling?) mask bit is supposed to be.  If that’s a joke too, someone explain it to me.

New Apple game called Ready Steady Bang:

Pretty simple game, you play against a cowboy in a duel.  Pretty cool that people are getting rich off these 99cent iDevice games.  

Rant:

I really don’t feel like I’m missing by only having a Motorola Xoom, which by the way still holds the spot of being the #1 best electronic device I’ve ever owned.  The hardware is incredible, and the software is made by google… so yea it’s amazing too.  

I’ll probably never buy an Apple product again.  Not because of the quality (it’s obviously top notch), but because of the restrictions (both software and hardware) on all of their devices.   Yea you can get relatively cheap 3rd party cables and software, and even jailbreak the phones… but why should I have to pay or do some work to make the device function as it rightfully should?

I don’t know who most of those characters are.  Neat idea for a commercial though, that’s for sure!

At first I was like LOL, then I was like 0.o

The Army is partnering with the other uniformed services and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to find and treat servicemembers and civilians who were bitten by stray dogs and animals while deployed, according to a command news release.

The article says that the soldier who recently died from rabies, was the first death since 1967.   I don’t mean to be cold, but isn’t there anything else besides enemy fire that has taken more than one life in 44 years?   *shrug* As long as it’s not costing a mint, I don’t see the harm in slapping some of those posters up on bases and maybe shoehorning in a “Hey guys, remember don’t touch stray dogs, cats, etc…” in the next brief.

You guys that have served would know better than me. Do seemingly pointless things like this come down the pipeline every so often?

Some multiplayer gameplay footage:

An INSANE $650,000 simulator built to play the game:

A four by nine meter video dome surrounds the player as they stand on an omni-directional treadmill that lets you walk wherever you want to go. Ten infra-red motion tracking cameras and a sensor on your gun enables the picture to follow where you point it and a Kinect hack controls your jumping and crouching. The fun doesn’t stop there — 12 paintball markers mean that every time you get shot in the game, you’ll feel it. 

Nuts… lots more pictures and info over at Engadget.

You can order Battlefield 3 (Oct. 25th Release) – HERE

FPS simulators still have a long way to go, but this is definitely a step in the right direction.   Thoughts?
