Back in the saddle

Now that university is over, and I've got myself a job, I can finally get back to the old blog again. I might start up my 'random facts you probably don't know' thing again, but until I find a decent one, here is a picture of the best etch a sketch picture ever.

Today is the fateful day, my final project is to be handed in. I hope my tutors and external examiners alike are wowed and impressed by my efforts in the field of interactive film adventures!

Sucker Punch

Just a quick post this time, letting you all know, i went to see Sucker Punch on the IMAX recently...
Dear god, there is one thing accurate in what it promises: I was unprepared. For just how bad it was :(

Im not bandwagon jumping, as I had deliberately not looked at any reviews for it so i would have a unbiased perspective on it. However, after seeing the trailer I wasnt expecting an incredible story or anything, just mind-numbing explosions and tits. However, my already lowered expectations were not met. The film offered little to no development for ANY of the characters, the plot was weak and just an excuse for the spectacle and the special effects, and even they couldnt save this movie...

In short, I didnt like it. I loved watchmen and I loved 300, but this was just awful and should be piled in my back garden and burned.

This is perhaps the most pleasurable video I have seen in a very long time, seeing this kid stand up for himself against the bully is awesome!

Daily(?) Facts 7

Long time no facts. Sorry, lots of problems in the old life atm...

New fact!

What animal has saved the most human lives?
Nope, sorry boy, not you.

It's this little guy. The horseshoe crab. Technically not a crab at all, but whatever. Their blood is used to create LAL which is used as an artificial kidney of sorts, that clots when harmful bacteria like diseases are introduced to it. This allows scientists to test drugs and immunisations on the blood. If the blood clots, its not working, if it doesnt;

This LAL sells for $15,000 a litre and, due to a haemoglobin count of 0 is BLUE. No not just 'blue' like unoxygenated blood 'blue' but full on NEON blue. Not only that but they are the oldest living form of life on earth, their species is 445 MILLION years old. They also have 10 eyes and can go a year without eating.

Crazy crabs :3

Daily fact 6

A few animal facts today!

First, I answer an age-old question. Which one you ask?
This one:
Which came first, the chicken? Or the egg? People always site this as some unanswerable question, but the answer is quite simple when you think about it: Birds evolved from reptiles, so the first bird would have come from an egg, laid by a reptile. Simple right?

Here's another challenge. Name a fish!
Dont bother, it's impossible, simply because theres no such thing as "fish". The world is given out and mislabled across hundreds of species. It's simply a term that is given to aquatic vetebrate that is not a mammal, turtle etc. It'd be like calling bats and flying lizards birds because they fly.

Oh well, they're scientists, not writers or...namers.......Anywho, see you tomorrow.
