That would be priceless if it went down like that between Shia LaBeouf and Tyrese Gibson, but I’m not holding my breath.

The upper receiver looks like an AT4 with some extras. I’m not sure about the night vision.. I don’t know much about those.

In an attempt to get Michael Bay’s attention to cast her in Transformers III, ‘The Hills’ star Heidi Montag gets down to business:

I am very impressed with that video.  I don’t think she is the right pick for Transformers III now that Megan Fox got dropped, but Heidi is definitely showing some impressive gun handling and gun safety.

Her draw, and re-holster are both pretty damn smooth too.

I take back what I said about her and Spencer Pratt in 2008… well maybe not what I said about Spencer.

The Air Force Research Laboratory in Rome, New York picked up 336 PS3 systems in 2009 and built itself a 53 teraFLOP processing cluster. Once completed as a proof of concept, Air Force researchers then scaled up by a factor of six and went in search of 2,200 more consoles(later scaled back to 1,700). The $663,000 contract was awarded on January 6, 2010, to a small company called Fixstars that could provide 1,700 160GB PS3 systems to the government.

When Sony issued a recent PlayStation 3 updater emoving the device’s ability to install alternate operating systems like Linux, it did so to protect copyrighted content—but several research projects such as this one suffered collateral damage.

From my limited experience with the PS3, I believe you have the option to deny the “upgrades”. Why the air force would bother installing the upgrades on a perfectly functional cluster is beyond my comprehension.  You’d think the press that Sony gets from major projects such as this, they would at least tip the USAF off and tell them to avoid upgrading because of the ill effects it would bring to their cluster.

1700 PS3 systems is a lot!  I wonder if the USAF will be auctioning those off now for cheap?  :P

Making breakfast couldn’t get any more manly:

I’ve discovered a new way of cooking bacon. All you need is: bacon, tin foil, some string, and.. oh whats it called?… oh yeah, an old worn out 7.62mm machinegun that is about to be discarded, and about 200 rounds of ammunition.

1) You start by wrapping the barrel in tin foil. Then you wrap bacon around it, and tie it down with some string.

Advanced Armament Corp. has a great video on how to obtain a suppressor (or silencer).   Basically he demystifies the whole process:
