It's offical: Bill Gates is a prick.

In a recent interview with Bill Gates, he is asked how far behind Google Microsoft is. So Gates replies, "search is pathetic".

Just one more thing to add to the list of why I hate bill gates (he doesn't deserve capitol letters).

Black holes get lonely too...

Score one for the Russians...

Seriously, all the coolest media comes from Russia, like this video of what I am assuming is either a stunt man, or a very adventurous gymnast.

I wish I had a better quality version of this, if anyones got it, please post it.

Incredible machines...

Ever play the game Return of the Incredible Machines? Well, if not, it was a game where you had to build Rube Goldberg like machines to complete tasks. Here is a video compilation of some real machines.

Note: The annoying thing they keep saying is "Pythagorean switch".

I'd pay to see this.

Here is an awesome video of two robots wrestling. The mobility of these robots is very impressive. This is something I'm sure most of you would pay to see. Luckily this video is free.

It's about time...

Japan finally got down to buisness. They have constructed a anime style mech. Although its walking ability isn't all it could be, the overall concept and appearence is pretty cool. Here it is.

There is also a guy in Alska that is building a mech. This mech is more of what you would expect a mech to be. It is very impressive. Mecha.

WoW Gets Personal!!

This video from WoW is both hilarious and lame. A little background first:

A member of a WoW guild died in real life. To commemorate their fallen comrade they held an in game funeral. During the funeral they put down all of their weapons and armor. Another guild found out about this and decided to do something about it.
