Un-Terminated

Faisal brings word of a new Terminator movie that may not completely suck. Fingers crossed.

Main Core

What is Main Core? Perhaps just a conspiracy theory. Perhaps not.

Thanks to Nathan for the nightmares.

Acidified Seawater

This is an ecological problem I hadn't heard about before. The carbon sinking that the oceans perform is raising the acidity of the seawater much faster than expected. These changes have the potential to significantly impact marine life, possibly in devastating ways. The key points from the article are:

  1. The process is happening much faster than predicted, with acidic water only four miles off the Northern California coast.
  2. The water is already acidic enough to dissolve shells, corals, tiny animals, and fish eggs
  3. What we're seeing now is a result of things that happened about 50 years ago--which is to say that the problem is likely to get far worse even if we immediately shut down human carbon release

If accurate, this is a horrifying discovery.

Thanks to Nathan for the link.

More R/C Video, This Time With Glasses

On the heels of the video from last week, here's a new system that uses a set of video goggles and a gyro to allow the viewer to pan the camera by simply moving their head. Excellent!
