Fox Atomic have officially ceased production on its remake of Revenge of the Nerds, according to Variety.
The project was slated for a release next summer, but was put on hold earlier this month after two weeks of shooting when Emory University, the location for the movie, decided to no longer participate in the film.
The feature was meant to be a remake of the original that followed a frat for the socially awkward, thick-glasses-sporting set that exacts revenge on the football players who've repeatedly humiliated them. Kyle Newman was set to direct, with a cast that included Katie Cassidy, Jenna Dewan and Dan Byrd.
McDonald's wants to own the rights to how a sandwich is made. The fast-food chain has applied for a patent relating to the 'method and apparatus' used to prepare the snack.
The burger company says owning the 'intellectual property rights' would help its hot deli sandwiches look and taste the same at all of its restaurants. It also wants to cut down on the time needed to put together a sandwich, thought to have been dreamt up by the Earl of Sandwich in 1762.
The table below was prepared in response to frequent inquiries, especially from the media, asking questions such as, "What are the odds of being killed by lightning?" or "What are the chances of dying in a plane crash?"

I have right here in my hot little hands that actually aren't all that little and are only slightly warm at the moment a brand new lick-ready smooth-as-love Apple MacBook Pro Core 2 Duo Super Orgasm Deluxe Ultrahard Modern Computing Device Designed by God Herself Somewhere in the Deep Moist Vulva of Cupertino Yes Yes Don't Stop Oh My God Yes.
This machine, this silky hunk of aluminum and wire and divine Chinese factory-made love, was recently delivered into my hands by a squad of naked cooing angels who all happened to look exactly like Jenna Jameson or perhaps Eva Green and who also gave me a free foot massage and four hits of premium Ecstasy and a complimentary 3-hour tongue bath, all at the same time.
Most folks never realize how cute microbes can be when expanded 1,000,000 times and then fashioned into cuddly plush. Until now, that is. Keep one on your desktop to remind yourself that there is an "invisible" universe out there filled with very small things that can do incredible damage to much bigger things. Then go and wash your hands. Lather, rinse, repeat.

With a screaming speed-metal guitar solo? Neither did we, that is until we got our hands on this amazing iAXE USB powered electric guitar. Simply plug the iAXE into any available USB port, jack in some headphones and commence to rock using the included software which simulates different amps and effect pedals. The iAXE is a full size professional guitar so having some guitar playing skillz might help.
This year marks the 40th anniversary of that momentously geeky occasion, and this is the Type II phaser you have been dying to have since the first day you saw Captain Kirk kick Klingon keister.
With full lights and sound, the only thing this phaser can't do is really fire. There are 4 power settings (with progressively aggressive sounds and lights), a light control knob (and on/off switch), a flip up "sight," and an overload setting. Oh, and for all those covert missions, the Type I phaser quickly detaches - still with full lights and sound! Grab one and meet the away team in transporter room 2. Just make sure you aren't wearing a red shirt.
While you are reading this there is a man in one of the windows high above you who is taking your photograph. He will then make a wee model of you and put it with other wee models of other people then he plays weird games with them.

Women who bicycle frequently run the risk of decreased sensitivity in their genitals as well as pain, a new study suggests.
This is the first study to evaluate the effects of prolonged or frequent bicycling on neurological and sexual function in women.
While seated on a bicycle, the external genital nerve and artery are directly compressed. It is possible that chronic compression of the female genital area may lead to compromised blood flow and nerve injury due to disruption of the blood-nerve barrier.
Niagara Falls is renowned for its beauty, and is both a valuable source of hydroelectric power and a challenging project for environmental preservation. A popular tourist site for over a century, the natural wonder is shared between the twin cities of Niagara Falls, Ontario and Niagara Falls, New York.
Niagara Falls is a set of massive waterfalls located on the Niagara River in eastern North America, on the border between the United States and Canada.
Niagara Falls comprises three separate waterfalls: the Horseshoe Falls, the American Falls, and the smaller, adjacent Bridal Veil Falls. While not exceptionally high, Niagara Falls is very wide. With more than 6 million cubic feet (168,000 m³) of water falling over the crestline every minute in high flow, and almost 4 million cubic feet (110,000 m³) on average, it is the most powerful waterfall in North America.
Coca-Cola has partnered up with schools across the country to brand our future customers: your kids. We say we're raising money for education by placing Coke machines in schools, but the fact is we're capturing a whole new market. Some principals are even encouraging kids to drink Coke in class.
We don't ask them to do it, but they know they have to meet sales quotas if they want us to cough up a few bucks for education. Some children may become dangerously obese, or loose a few teeth, but isn't that why we have fat farms and dentists? These people have to make a living too, you know. A child's health is a small price to pay to raise our profits. Sure, there will always be people who oppose pushing junk food to school kids but penicillin had its critics too. Coke and education go together like cheating and finals.
According to NC Lottery officials, a North Carolina man threw away a winning $100,000 lottery ticket and then went back to the dumpster to find it.
The NC Lottery Commission says that Wilson County resident Wallace Woodard purchased a $5 "Winter Winnerland" instant scratch-off ticket about a week ago. Wilson told lottery officials that he thought the ticket was not a winner so he tossed it in the garbage.
A week later, he thought he would try the same game again and this time, he said that he decided to read the ticket's instructions to learn how to win. Wilson said that after reading the instructions on the second ticket, he immediately realized his mistake in throwing away the first ticket, which was worth $100,000.
Microsoft has been touting Vista's new power saving features, saying that upgrading to Vista could easily save consumers and corporations $50 to $75 per computer per year in energy costs. The question, though, is what marvelous new code makes this miracle possible. The answer? They fixed three stupid mistakes that have cost the world billions of dollars and millions of tons of CO2 in the past five years.
First, Microsoft never put power-saving options high on the list of default specs. In order for XP to run smoothly, with all its bells and whistles going, desktop machines had to run in "high-performance" mode, the equivalent of flooring your Honda at every green light. So the defaults were often set to "High Performance." Even when they weren't, consumers generally chose the setting themselves, not realizing that it had any affect on power consumption.
Quite a clever commercial for the PS1 in EU, when they were using the slogan "Do Not Underestimate The Power Of The PlayStation." They could of just used this ad for the PS3 instead of this incredibly creepy spot.
The new dollars are set to feature the past Presidents of the United States in order from George Washington to Richard M. Nixon.
Instead of a textured or ridged edge, the smooth rim will now hold such features as the mintmark, the date of striking, and the mottos “In God We Trust” and "E Pluribus Unum.” The design change is intended to allow space for larger portraits of the Presidents on the obverse side, and the Statue of Liberty on the reverse.
Philippines airport authorities on Tuesday foiled an alleged attempt by a Filipino woman to smuggle more than 100 poisonous snakes and lizards to Thailand.
An airport X-ray technician reported seeing the image of a snake inside one of two large suitcases allegedly belonging to a woman, who came from the central Philippine city of Bacolod on her way to Bangkok, Thailand, said customs officer Tessie Roque.
The two suitcases were later opened, revealing dozens of soft drink and water bottles and sacks containing 50 monitor lizards, 39 cobras, 21 vipers, 20 other smaller lizards and two iguanas.
No, it's not another scandalous display from Andres Serrano, this is a 24-carat gold HP Laserjet p2015. On display at the GITEX show somewhere in Dubai, this working prototype is up for auction with a starting price of US$299 or about a Benjamin less than the printer costs without all that gold.
Why did they choose a middling LaserJet and not an HP-35 or other HP product more worthy of such opulence? Hell, we have no idea, but we'll get some private investigators to check their phone records and get back to you.

More sophisticated than mundane golf stunts, this is the worlds most advanced practical joke golf ball. Detailed to resemble a real golf ball, it zigs and zags at a touch of the remote control, allowing you to fool golf partners as they watch putts drift wide of the cup at your command.
The joystick on the discrete remote control lets you direct the ball within a 100' range. The ball can operate on three different, selectable frequencies, allowing you to race two at a time.
The clerk asked the man whether he was robbing him, and the man told the clerk to get all the money out and give him half and keep the other half. The man had his hand inside a stocking cap, pointing it at the clerk as if he had a gun in it, the clerk told police.
After the clerk gave the man all the money from the cash drawer, the robber said: "Here, take $20 for your troubles."
Assistant Prosecutor Martin Anton said James Michael Jackson arranged to meet the prostitute Wednesday at a Comfort Inn, where he revealed his badge and gun to her and told her she was under arrest, the Asbury Park (N.J.) Press reported Tuesday.
Jackson ordered the prostitute to strip and forced her to consent to an intimate body cavity search, Anton said.
Anton said the officer released the prostitute after the search and she approached law enforcement officials the next day after finding out that Jackson's actions were illegal.
First Daughter Barbara Bush had her purse and cell phone stolen as she had dinner in a restaurant in Buenos Aires, Argentina, even though she was being guarded by a detail of Secret Service agents, according to law enforcement reports made available to ABC News.
The purse snatching took place on Barbara's first night in town while she was dining in the picturesque San Telmo neighborhood. According to the reports, the Secret Service agents failed to notice the incident.
The submarine appeared to be a makeshift vessel unlike military submarines or those used by oceanographers. It could only submerge 6 feet under water, Costa Rican Coast Guard spokesman Jose Antonio Fallas told Reuters.
The 45-foot-long vessel was found last Wednesday near the remote Coco Island, southwest of the Central American mainland, and had traveled hundreds of miles from Colombia on its way to the United States.
Belmont is set to make history by becoming the first city in the nation to ban smoking on its streets and almost everywhere else.
The Belmont City Council voted unanimously last night to pursue a strict law that will prohibit smoking anywhere in the city except for single-family detached residences. Smoking on the street, in a park and even in one’s car will become illegal and police would have the option of handing out tickets if they catch someone.
Two students are accused of putting staples in ketchup at the Winfield high school and middle schools -- an incident that has school officials reviewing their kitchen-access policy.
Officials were alerted after two students eating lunch found the staples in their food Wednesday. Food service workers found more staples in the bottom of ketchup bins being used in the lunch lines. They quickly removed hamburgers from the menu and called police.
You've all seen them before, but you've never seen this many in one place. From Mario to Halo to Zelda to Final Fantasy to Bubble Bobble to the infamous Pac Man butt crack tattoo to NES guns, there's enough body ink in this gallery to make even Michael Jackson look pretty.
A FF7 tattoo ironically scored 7th on the 25 list, which was judged based on how large and colorful the tattoos were, how obscure the related games were, and the 'WTF is that' factor of certain body tattoo placement. And pain. The winner of them all had to hurt like a Chain Chomp, but it was worth it!
The mother of a Brazilian fashion model who died from complications of anorexia has made an emotional appeal for parents to take better care of aspiring young models.
The death of Ana Carolina Reston, 21, follows growing criticism of the use of underweight models in the fashion world, an issue given new significance after the death in August of Uruguayan model Luisel Ramos of heart failure during a fashion show in Montevideo.
Reston died Tuesday in a Sao Paulo hospital from a generalized infection caused by anorexia, an eating disorder in which sufferers obsessively deprive themselves of food in pursuit of an ultra-slim look.
Reston weighed only 88 pounds and was about 5 feet 8 inches tall. Doctors consider this weight normal for a 12-year-old girl no more than about 5 feet tall.
Courtney Love bares her soul in a new book, and she confirms to ABC News Radio that she'll also bare her body by posing naked in Britain's Pop magazine next month.
"This is going to be the next controversy," she told ABC's Dave Alpert, confirming that she had posed for the picture several weeks ago and decided she didn't like the outfits that had been picked out for her.
"Just give me some stockings and a pair of high heels and ... that's it," she said she had told the photographer.
In an effort to handle its nighttime public urination problem, Victoria, the capital of British Columbia, is considering installing urinals that disappear below street level during the day. Unlike the automated, self-cleaning toilets planned for Toronto and Vancouver, which are enclosed booths with doors that that automatically open after a set time period, the Urilift system is a two-meter high stainless steel cylinder with three alcoves, each with a urinal, and no doors.
By day, the Urilift is lowered below street level for a nice clean look. Then at night, an operator comes by with a remote and the Urilift hydraulically lifts to sidewalk level in about two minutes. Then the unit is ready to serve all the nighttime party animals who don’t mind peeing in a very exposed public urinal.
The urinals are designed exclusively for men, and more specifically, for male drinkers. The $75,000 system has been installed across the Netherlands, and have spread to London and Belfast, but Victoria will be the first North American city to try them out.
Anyone who ever played cops-and-robbers as a kid, listened to a police scanner or watched TV shows such as "Dragnet" or "Adam-12" knows that "10-4" and other codes beginning with 10 are radio cop-speak for "OK," or "officer down" or "burglary in progress."
But now it looks as if it's over-and-out for 10-codes. The Virginia State Police and some local police departments are dropping them and switching to plain English.
Among the codes that have been shelved in favor of their English translation are the mundane 10-23 (arrived at the scene), the blood-pumping 10-47 (chase in progress) and the grim 10-82 (dead body).
The change comes as the Homeland Security Department presses local law enforcement authorities to improve communications so that different agencies can work together without confusion during an emergency.
For 26 years, a man known only as Secret Santa has roamed the streets every December quietly giving people money.
He started with $5 and $10 bills. As his fortune grew, so did the gifts. In recent years, Secret Santa has been handing out $100 bills, sometimes two or three at a time, to people in thrift stores, diners and parking lots.
So far, he's anonymously given out about $1.3 million. It's been a long-held holiday mystery: Who is Secret Santa? He is Larry Stewart, a 58-year-old businessman from the Kansas City suburb of Lee's Summit, Missouri, who made his millions in cable television and long-distance telephone service.
His holiday giving started in December 1979 when he was nursing his wounds at a drive-in restaurant after getting fired. It was the second year in a row he had been fired the week before Christmas.
The Wii comes with about seventeen pages of warnings about using the Wiimote without the wrist strap. The thing actually includes a sensor that can tell when you're not using it properly, electronically alerting Nintendo H.Q. whenever you're breaching the warranty. Trust me, they can and will exercise their legal right to release the wards binding Hiroshi Yamauchi into retirement so he can go to your house, judo-chop the top of your head off and feast upon your living brain.
But we know gamers. Ain't nobody going to remember to slip that goofy strap around their wrist. Hell, you'll make fun of any pansy friends who actually do use the thing. As a public service we've taken it upon ourselves to explore all the dangerous possibilities of improper Wii-mote use.
A shoplifter who snatched a haul of cosmetics in an Estonian department store left security scratching their heads, until they found the ill-gotten gains stashed in his wooden leg.
A limping customer, whom security staff said they recognised as a seasoned thief, entered the shop in the Estonian capital Tallinn, the Falck security company said Tuesday.
"The security staff member followed the experienced shoplifter through a surveillance camera and saw him entering a changing booth with a lot of cosmetic goods in his shopping basket," Katrin Paas, spokeswoman for Falck, said.
"He then left the changing room, but with an empty basket."
Saliva from humans has yielded a natural painkiller up to six times more powerful than morphine, researchers say.
The substance, dubbed opiorphin, may spawn a new generation of natural painkillers that relieve pain as well as morphine but without the addictive and psychological side effects of the traditional drug.
When the researchers injected a pain-inducing chemical into rats’ paws, 1 gram of opiorphin per kilogram of body weight achieved the same painkilling effect as 3 grams of morphine.
Waiting in line for more than a week is bad enough, but some in the group called off sick and one guy even quit his job to stand in line. To make it even worse, the one who called in sick has postponed his engagement with his girlfriend because the money that would have gone into buying a ring will be used to buy a PlayStation 3.
The last guy in line didn't want to go on camera, but he told us that he wasn't sure if there were enough PlayStation 3 consoles. Apparently Best Buy employees are very tight lipped on exactly how many consoles the store will be receiving.
But no longer. After waiting 4 days for the campers to settle in, Best Buy kicked the whole group of its property on Friday afternoon. No word on whether the decision is from corporate, the local mall or the local Best Buy management, but we do know that it's 4 days of non-showering, job-quitting and engagement-postponing all for naught. A true modern tragedy.
KFC has the honor to be the first brand to be visible from outer-space, according to company officials. The 87,500 square feet logo was created by tiles placed in the Nevada desert, near the super secret Area 51. The stunt marks the revamp of the KFC logo, which now features a more streamlined image of Colonel Sanders.
Each office has an Xbox, Playstation, not to mention a moat surrounding it. George Davison spent $$$$$ to create a "Wonkaland" for his employees, building the most creative work environment in the world. Unbelievable place.
It's minus 120 degrees and all I'm wearing is a hat and socks. Cryotherapy is the latest treatment for a range of illnesses including arthritis, osteoporosis, and even MS. New Age madness or a genuine medical breakthrough?
The airlock door to the cryo-chamber slides open before me. A powerful whoosh of cold air escapes and a few curls of frozen smoke snake out around my legs. It’s like standing in front of a giant refrigerator, but instead of taking out a pint of cold milk I’m about to step inside.
The temperature is minus 120 degrees and all I’m wearing is a pair of skimpy shorts, knee-high socks, gloves, and a sweatband. Plus a pair of white leather clogs.
I look like a cross between a sparsely clad John McEnroe and a laboratory technician. Indeed it all sounds like someone’s nightmare. In fact I’m actually at a health spa in Battersea, about to experience the latest alternative health fad: ‘whole body cryotherapy’.
The first truly was the best. The Swiss native's voice may have been completely dubbed over in postproduction, but, well, the goods were all hers. Her sultry walk out of the waves set the tone for every sexy-strong Bond girl who followed and led a generation of men to dream about lying down ''underneath the mango tree.''
Come on, what self-respecting Bond girl would tremble at the sight of...Herve Villechaize? Another Swede who was all sex and no spunk, Ekland may have had one of the series' best bikinis, but her dopey, doltish portrayal was a turnoff as much to filmgoers as to fans of Ian Fleming's novels, in which Goodnight is one of 007's closest allies.
TeenScreen, part of Bush's National Mandated Mental Health Screening program, is a 10 minute mental health test that may cause kids to be diagnosed with a mental illness and put on psychiatric drugs. When it was done in Colorado, 71% of the kids who took the test were told they had a mental disorder.
Once a teen is told that he has a mental disorder, which is decided by how he answers their questions, his parents are called and told that their kid needs treatment. In other words, drugs.
Out of the last thirteen school shooters, nine of them were taking these drugs. And those are just the ones we know about -- the others were most likely on these drugs as well. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) just last year said that psychiatric drugs can actually cause kids including teens to kill themselves.
Thinking about intelligence as changeable and malleable, rather than stable and fixed, results in greater academic achievement, especially for people whose groups bear the burden of negative stereotypes about their intelligence.
Can people get smarter? Are some racial or social groups smarter than others? Despite a lot of evidence to the contrary, many people believe that intelligence is fixed, and, moreover, that some racial and social groups are inherently smarter than others. Merely evoking these stereotypes about the intellectual inferiority of these groups (such as women and Blacks) is enough to harm the academic perfomance of members of these groups.
A Keystone woman was arrested early Thursday for DUI -- after she was stopped while driving a golf cart. A Rapid City police officer was on patrol around midnight when he met a woman on a golf cart driving on the road.
The police report said the officer put on his emergency lights and tried to stop the golf cart because it had no lights and was a threat to traffic. The driver would not stop at first but finally did after she realized she couldn't outrun the squad car, according to police.
Pop singer Britney Spears' estranged hubby Kevin Federline has reportedly threatened to go public with the couples honeymoon sex tapes if she fails to make a hefty payout to him and hand custody of their two sons.
Britney fears the raunchy footage will destroy her wholesome image unless she caves in to his demands for a £16million payoff and custody of their children Sean Preston, one, and Jayden James, eight weeks.
She is worried she will become infamous like Paris Hilton —whose home-made sex video, was put on the internet by her ex and became one of the world's most popular sites.
The home-made video is believed to show the naked couple enjoying an uninhibited range of love-making and sexual games. It was made during the first weeks of their relationship two years ago when they were holed up in one of the exclusive bungalows at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles.
Forget the small-town belief in letting bygones be bygones. The star of "The Andy Griffith Show," who portrayed the sheriff of the fictional town of Mayberry, has sued a Wisconsin man who unsuccessfully ran for the Grant County post after legally changing his name to Andrew Jackson Griffith.
The lawsuit, filed Nov. 3 in U.S. District Court in Madison, alleges that William Harold Fenrick, 42, violated trademark and copyright laws, as well as the privacy of actor Andy Samuel Griffith, when he used his new name to promote his candidacy for sheriff in southwestern Wisconsin.

Samsung has partnered with Korea University to develop a machine-gun equipped sentry robot, which consists of “two cameras: one for day-time and one for infrared night vision, zooming capabilities, a speaker for notifying the intruder, sophisticated pattern recognition to detect the difference between humans/trees, and a 5.5mm machine-gun.”
Expected to sell for $200,00 USD and will be available late in 2007. The South Korean government plans to deploy these friendly reminders on the border between South and North Korea, to further ease relations between the countries.
The LAPD beat a man and it's all caught on tape. Nothing new there -- but nowadays -- the video made it on to YouTube and the cops are in serious trouble. If only Rodney King had a YouTube account back in the day.
A Covington bar must now "cover up" after it was busted for baring backsides. According to the Cincinnati Post, police using binoculars could clearly see the activites associated with "Thong Thursdays" at Joe's.
But ironically, the problem wasn't with the bare bottoms, it was that they could be seen from the street.
The owner of Joe's says he's happy to cover the windows if it means "Thong Thursdays" can live on.
A man suffered internal burns when he tried to launch a rocket from his bottom on Bonfire Night. Paramedics found the 22-year-old bleeding, with a Black Cat Thunderbolt Rocket lodged inside him, when they attended the scene in Sunderland.
He suffered a scorched colon and is now recovering in hospital, where his condition is described as stable. A spokesman for the Firework Association described the bizarre prank as "beyond belief".
BlueScreen Screen Saver v3.2.One of the most feared colors in the NT world is blue. The infamous Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) will pop up on an NT system whenever something has gone terribly wrong. Bluescreen is a screen saver that not only authentically mimics a BSOD, but will simulate startup screens seen during a system boot.
Bluescreen cycles between different Blue Screens and simulated boots every 15 seconds or so. Virtually all the information shown on Bluescreen's BSOD and system start screen is obtained from your system configuration - its accuracy will fool even advanced NT developers. For example, the NT build number, processor revision, loaded drivers and addresses, disk drive characteristics, and memory size are all taken from the system Bluescreen is running on.
Use Bluescreen to amaze your friends and scare your enemies!
A Japanese inventor unveils what he calls the "next generation of eco-friendly energy sources" - batteries powered by water.
Susumu Suzuki, the president of Tokyo-based building material maker TSC (Total System Conductor), has invented water-powered batteries, which have an electric current as powerful as that of a standard manganese dioxide battery.
Suzuki says these batteries would be cheap to produce and can be recycled several times, making them an essential tool for the future.
Last month someone created a genius T-shirt that put a gamer's spin on the age old "yo mamma" bag. The shirt read "Your Mom's Rated E for Everyone." Who wouldn't think that's friggin hilarious. The ESA, that's who.
Earlier this week the Entertainment Software Association sicced their lawyers on us. Demanding that we take down the post about the shirt, calling it an advertisement and saying that the shirt would create consumer confusion and a "substantial likelihood that the ESRB certification marks will face tarnishment and dilution."
Our response: Go to hell. Sure, it was much more eloquently stated, but the fact is that the ESA can't control editorial content of a website. As a matter of fact, they probably can't stop the shirt seller either, since the creation is so obviously a parody.
But the so-called Belgian Blue - pictured here - is perhaps the least disturbing of the creatures to be shown in the three-part series Channel 4 Farm this winter. There are also glow-in the dark pigs and goats which produce spider's silk.
"This is an exciting science series about genetic modification. Everything on the Farm is real. You may think these creatures are the future but they are the reality, living right now.
Just in case you were wondering… Feces are fascinating. Flush down your initial grade-school scatological silliness and you'll discover a world of energy efficiency and unparalleled waste management. If machines, industries and nations ran as well as your stomach, intestines and colon, we could say goodbye to a lot of landfills.
The complex digestion process ensures that almost no useful energy goes unused. The average bowel movement is three parts water to one part solid matter. Bacteria make up 30 percent of the solid stuff. The same goes for indigestible foods like cellulose and extra fiber. The remaining 40 percent contains various inorganic wastes, fats and used-up body substances like red blood cells, which are released from the liver in an orange-brown compound called bilirubin.
Bilirubin mixes with another liver product, yellowish bile, to give poo its distinctive hue.
Leave it to the Japanese to create tiny collectable handguns that come with delicious melon flavored candy. We're not sure who the intended audience is for these mini toys... but frankly we don't care since they are pretty darn cool. There are eight different classic handguns in all... with one secret model.
Each is die cast from metal and features amazing detail with removable clips or spinning chambers (depending on the model). These guns don't shoot, but they'd be perfect for intimidating your girlfriend's Barbie collection.
Last December, as we were settling down for a long winter's nap, we were visited by two robots from the future! They spoke to us and now it is time to share their message. There's good news and bad news. The good news is there are tons of really cool robots in the future. The bad news is they are divided into two factions, are waging war against each other, and have "downgraded" humans to pretty much servants and food. We quickly smashed the robots with hammers, and swore to devise a way to save humanity.
Before we destroyed the robots, however, we were able to learn two things. 1. Each army of robots uses a different color scanning light (red or blue); 2. We have no idea which side is in humanity's best interest to win. So we built the Snowbot - a small, winter-themed beacon…and perhaps our only hope.
Powered by a simple USB port, the Snowbot has a scanning light just like the robots from the future. You can change the speed of the scan, turn on/off the scanning noise, and (for future protection) change the scan color (red or blue). So no matter which robot army storms your home or office, a quick flick of a switch and you are rooting for the invader's color. Hopefully then the robots will just make you a servant and not an appetizer. Good luck and happy holidays.

Every mythic hero normally has an equally mythic weapon. Zeus had his thunderbolts. Thor had his hammer, Mjolnir. King Arthur had his Excalibur. Frodo and Bilbo had their Sting. Rhydderch Hael had his Dyrnwyn. King Kong had his bananas…you get the idea. It's time for you to join the ranks of the heroes and heroines of lore as you weld your own legendary weapon in your battle against a very powerful foe: hunger.
The Titanium Spork is ready for the challenge. Titanium is known for its great strength, corrosion resistance, and light weight, which makes this spork a valuable asset around feeding time. Imagine how much more food you could shovel in at your local buffet if you didn't have to worry about the strain of picking up a heavy fork or spoon. Your food consumption can become the stuff of legends. Even just holding the Titanium Spork in your hand, you can feel its power. It is perhaps the greatest gastronomic invention since lickable wallpaper. Hunger, beware - your end is near!
In 1953 the first widescreen movie wowed theater audiences by providing a vastly superior experience to squinting at a mostly square B&W image on that incredible new device... the Television. Suddenly people all over the world realized one critical truth - "Wider really is Better".
Skip forward over half a century to the present... widescreen TVs are in every home and this fine 7" Widescreen Digital Photo Frame. Coincidence? We think not. Display your photos a-la-widescreen and appeal to your geeky side with the cool USB host feature that allows you to pull images from a USB thumbdrive or external USB hard drive.
Of course you get the standard support for a myriad of media cards... including the one your digital camera uses. Plug n' view capabilities mean the photos start playing the moment you insert a media card... plus you get a handy remote, smooth cross-fades between images and support for videos and MP3 files for background music.
Simply take the memory card out of your camera and insert it into the Digital Picture Frame. Instantly you can view all of your photos as thumbnails or a slide show with crossfade between images. For added pizzazz you can play an MP3 music file during your slide show using the digital photo frame's internal speaker. The Digital Picture Frame supports four different media formats and will work with almost any digital camera. The included remote allows you to jump between photos, or zoom up on a photo without leaving your chair.
If you've met some of the people that repair computers for a living, you might be shocked at their diversity of knowledge, experience, and behavior.

These tips are written to aid technicians in following a path that is bound to put them above the pack and become indispensable to their clients and business. Every one of these tips can be taken as a matter of habit and will certainly boost your confidence as a technician and the money you bring into your business.
A few days ago, an executive over at video game giant EA had gone on record saying that the number of PS3 units shipped in 2006 could be almost half of what was originally predicted.
In what seems to be further fuel for the rumor fire, an anonymous employee of the electronics retailer, Best Buy, management let it slip out that Best Buy, itself, would be getting approximately half of the original number of units promised by Sony and is banking on Wii, 360, PSP, and PS2 sales to carry gaming through the holidays.
If you throw away 2 aluminum cans, you waste more energy than 1,000,000,000 (one billion) of the world's poorest people use a day. The average American makes about 3.5 pounds of trash a day.
Turn off lights. Turn off other electric things, like TVs, stereos, and radios when not in use. Use rechargable batteries. Do things manually instead of electrically, like open cans by hand. Use fans instead of air conditioners. In winter, wear a sweater instead of turning up your thermostat. Insulate your home so you won't be cold in winter. Use less hot water. Whenever possible, use a bus or subway, or ride your bike or walk. Try to buy organic fruits and vegetables if you're concerned about pesticides.
You see the movie, you watch Sacha Baron Cohen work his brand of in-character mayhem at a local TV station's morning news program, somewhere in the Deep South. The station? WAPT in Jackson, Mississippi. The news producer who didn't recognize Cohen, fell for his character's shtick, and booked him on her morning show? Dharma Arthur.
She didn't realize the silliness Cohen would unleash on her set (kissing male anchors, standing up during the interview, distracting the weather guy during his "bit"). It's one of the funniest things in the movie.
And the upshot? Arthur says she was fired for letting it happen, and has been unemployed and depressed, and tells Newsweek that she was Cohen's "victim."
If your LCD screen has a stuck or dead pixel , it's usually malfunctioning because the liquid in the liquid crystal display (TFT LCD) has not covered the whole screen. This can often be fixed.
Try a software solution (links at the bottom of the page). This method rapidly turns on and off pixels in an attempt to re-energise stuck pixels. If this fails, complete the following steps.
Turn off your computer's monitor.
Get yourself a damp cloth, so that you don't scratch your screen. Apply pressure to the area where the stuck pixel is. Do not put pressure anywhere else, as this may make more stuck pixels.
While applying pressure, turn on your computer and screen.
Remove pressure and the stuck pixel should be gone. This works as the liquid in the liquid crystal has not spread into each little pixel. This liquid is used with the backlight on your monitor, allowing different amounts of light through, which creates the different colours.
Canadian regulators cleared the implants for sale and implantation in October. Silicone implant makers -- as well as many women who believe silicone implants look and feel more natural than alternatives such as saline bags -- expect the Food and Drug Administration will soon follow in Canada's footsteps.
This is the "Director's Final Cut" authorized version of Aaron Russo's documentary, America: Freedom To Fascism (AFTF). It is being uploaded to Google Video for the first time during the evening of October 19-20th, 2006.
Aaron has listened to everyone's feedback - volunteers, students, lovers of freedom & liberty, young and old alike - and, true to his word, he is putting this up "for free" on Google Video knowing that the hour has come for Americans to either be awakened to restore the Republic or be swept aside by the dark global forces of fascism that seeks to enslave mankind.
AFTF's main focus comes in a statement with six very simple words: SHUT DOWN THE FEDERAL RESERVE SYSTEM!!
You could forgive a guy for grunting while lifting 500 pounds -- unless you're the owners of a place called Planet Fitness. It turns out that grunting isn't allowed in their universe.
Corrections officer Albert Argibay learned that the hard way this week. He was hoisting 500 pounds on a machine at the Wappingers Falls, N.Y., gym when the manager said he grunted -- in violation of the Planet Fitness rules.
Planet Fitness strives to promote health in a respectful atmosphere. For over a decade, Planet Fitness has gone to great lengths to provide its members with a friendly space to work out. We call it the Judgment Free Zone. We discourage weight dropping and obnoxious grunting so you can focus on your own workout and not the person next to you.
It's like the "Hello, I'm a Mac, and I'm a PC" commercials. I suddenly want to get a Wii. Which console would you choose. Based on cabinet size it seems that the wii is the clear winner.
Just how much living-room cabinet space are you going to have to sacrifice when you purchase a PlayStation 3 instead of a Nintendo Wii? Will your 1985 entertainment center fit your Xbox 360 in the same slot as a Nintendo NES? All your questions will be answered if you look at the picture.
Potential vampire Shaun just popped this interesting graph in our email this morning, comparing the price of HP ink to other various fluids, some bodily in nature. He calculates that a $30 HP #45 black ink cartridge gives you 42ml, pricing out to $0.71/ml. Meanwhile, blood apparently costs $200 for 500ml from the Red Cross, pricing out to $0.40/ml.
As part of the Virtual Neighborhood Border Watch Program, the State of Texas has been testing video surveillance cameras in different environments along the 1240 miles of Texas/Mexico border using the internet to transmit the images. The last stage of the test is to stress the system by providing public access to numerous surveillance cameras.
A detective who tested positive for drugs has given police brass an unusual explanation: His wife slipped him a helping of meatballs spiked with marijuana.
Chiofalo, a 22-year-veteran assigned to the Joint Terrorism Task Force, was suspended without pay last year after a random drug test given to all ranks in the department found marijuana in his system, officials said. The officer denied ever using drugs and demanded a hearing.
During an investigation, his wife confessed that she had served him meatballs using a recipe substituting marijuana for oregano. Her purpose, she said, was to keep him out of harm's way by forcing him into retirement.
A teen in Winter Park, Fla., was arrested on suspicion of selling about $800,000 worth of computers that did not exist on the online auction site eBay, Florida Department of Law Enforcement officials said.
Agents raided a Winter Park home on Aloma Road belonging to the parents of Thomas Thompson, 19, and took teen into custody Friday.
"Agents with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement said Thompson was selling high-end computer routers on eBay," Local 6's Louis Bolden said. "People were actually paying for them but he never delivered the goods -- ripping them off for about $800,000."
Contrary to popular belief, both males and females have Adam's apples, a chunk of bony cartilage that's wrapped around the larynx. In grown men they just stick out a lot more because of their larger voice boxes—also the reason why dudes speak in deeper tones.
But does it do anything? Not really. Like the cartilage in your ears or nose, it's just kind of there. Some men with especially prominent bumps even have them surgically shaved, with no ill effects.
Unfortunately, the Adam's apple's main purpose may be embarrassing men at the office, during presidential debates, or while lying to their wives. Besides bobbing around when swallowing, the apple can "jump" uncontrollably when you're nervous. Gulp!

A woman accused of duct-taping her two children together and leaving them home alone has been charged with child abuse, the sheriff's office said.
Agla Nadia Vincent, 25, was arrested Monday following a seven-month investigation into whether she left her two boys, then aged 2 and 3, taped to each other while she went to work, said Lt. Annie Smith of the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.
Vincent was a four-year naval officer at the time and worked at the Jacksonville Naval Air Station. She completed her service and was discharged in August, naval base spokesman Rick Cruz said.
For those unfamiliar with Bas Rutten, he is best known for winning the title of King of Pancrase three times. Pancrace is a submission grappling event based out of Japan. Bas has also fought in the UFC and other NHB events.
He is known for his standup striking ability. I saw one of Bas's instructional tapes years ago and was impressed that he was a no bullshit kind of guy with a great sense of humor. I never reviewed the whole set because I only had one tape from the set.
The Stardust, the neon-wrapped casino with a mobbed-up past whose 1,065 rooms once set the standard for size on the Las Vegas Strip, witnessed its last roll of the dice Wednesday.
Wistful longtime employees and loyal gamblers gathered for a last farewell to the iconic 48-year-old institution, which is to be razed early next year to make way for Boyd Gaming Corp.'s planned $4 billion Echelon Place resort.
The Stardust opened July 2, 1958, as the world's largest hotel and catered to middle America with $6-a-night rooms and low-minimum stakes gambling.
A jail went into lockdown and recounted its prisoners on Halloween night after a former inmate was spotted trick-or-treating in his old orange prisoner's jumpsuit.
The former inmate, Oscar Aponte, was taking his daughter trick-or-treating in Peekskill on Tuesday night when a county correction officer also out trick-or-treating with her child spotted the familiar jumpsuit, Tolchin said.
The jail went into lockdown until a prisoner count established that no one was missing. Meanwhile, police found Aponte, confiscated the genuine jumpsuit and let him go.
This training device helps you to exercise hard-to-reach core abdominal and oblique muscles while allowing you to improve balance and coordination without having to go to a gym.
The board has a non-slip platform with raised rubber toe and heel plates for better traction, and when mounted and activated using the remote control, the board pitches and yaws at three different speedsslow, medium, or fastforcing your abdominal muscles to contract in order for you to keep balance, resulting in a low-impact core workout.
You can also initiate a 15 minute cross-training program that shifts between the three speeds intermittently. An automatic timer shuts off the device after 15 minutes. Four non-skid rubber pads keep the board stationary while in use and will not mar hardwood surfaces.
This 8" digital picture frame has 64 MB of internal memory space allowing you to store up to 100 6-megapixel pictures on the device itself. A 32-bit microprocessor reads digital picture data from real time hardware, not software simulation, ensuring the frame will read, process, and display each digital picture faster than lesser models.
A six position stand adjusts to provide optimal viewing angles in both landscape and portrait modes or the frame can be wall-mounted. A slide show feature allows the sequenced display of digital photographs as music plays from the integrated speakers.
Unlike lesser analog TFT-LCD screens that have to convert digital information to analog input in order to be displayed, this picture frame has a digital TFT-L CD screen that displays the highest quality digital pictures and automatically scales down large pictures to fit the 800 x 600 resolution 8" screen.
Using the same technology that international automobile companies are implementing to develop zero- emission vehicles, this car is fueled entirely by hydrogen, the most abundant element in the universe, and powered without combustion while emitting only water from the exhaust system.
An external fueling station uses electrolysis to extract hydrogen gas from distilled water and sends the gas to a small balloon inside the car that acts as the hydrogen storage tank. The hydrogen is slowly released from the balloon into the onboard fuel cell where it reacts with oxygen to generate electricity to propel the car's motor. Refueling takes 10 minutes and the car can run in a straight line for three minutes and can travel up to 325' on a full tank.
This is a list of jobs held by the fictional character Homer Simpson from the animated television series The Simpsons. Jobs which may not be considered canon (such as jobs in Treehouse of Horror episodes) are indicated in green. Excluding these non-canon jobs, Homer has had 111 jobs as of now.
Bob Barker is heading toward his last showcase, his final "Come on down." The silver-haired daytime-TV icon is retiring in June, he told The Associated Press Tuesday.
"I will be 83 years old on December 12," he said, "and I've decided to retire while I'm still young." He'll hang up his microphone after 35 years as the host of "The Price Is Right" and 50 years overall in television.
Though he has been considering retirement for "at least 10 years," Barker said he has so much fun doing the show that he hasn't been able to leave.
Pilots routinely adjust their flight paths for a closer look, which is as good a way as any to sum up the scale of the Mega Ramp. The wooden structure is longer than a football field, as tall as an eight-story building, with a creek bed running through a 70-foot breach.
On a recent sunny afternoon, the ramp’s owner, Bob Burnquist, a renowned 30-year-old professional skateboarder from Brazil, peered over the side to treetops below and said: “I’m not afraid of falling. I’m afraid I might jump.”
Greg shed 41 lbs. from a 274-pound frame in just 3 months -- and did it playing World of Warcraft. Word?
Dubbed "Warbiking," Greg strapped a keyboard onto the display of his stationary bike (Schwinn 213 Recumbent) and used a side table to operate his mouse. He hung a 46-inch Samsung LCD to hold his attention, outputting WoW from his XPS Gen 2 laptop. Truth be told, Warbiking was only part of the regimen, which included weightlifting, a low calorie diet, and even fasting; but WoW was the cornerstone for the weight loss, as Greg attests:
Heelys are trainers with built-in wheels that allow wearers to glide across the ground as if floating on a cushion of air.
They have one wheel in the heel, or two for beginners, which are engaged by lifting the toes to tilt the heel back. The correct technique for "heeling" is to keep one foot directly behind the other during the slide, which can reach 10mph.
To disengage the wheels, users drag the heel down or run forward. UK importer Heelys Dealers has struggled to keep up with the demand for the shoes, which is expected to top 250,000 this year.
