Immortality within reach

So according to this article immortality is only 45 years away for the rich... add twenty more if you are poor...

Immortal Beloved

Sounds kinda hellish; aren't we already massively overpopulated? Although that is supposedly because only the stupid are breeding...
What would it do to unemployement figures? PENSIONS??? and for twenty years no rich people dying would mean theoretically, in age groupings they would outnumber the rest of us; gangs of Hooray Henry's terrorising the elderly!
And if it takes off?
People would probably stop breeding, the ruling classes would never change, and subsequently neither will the poor elevate themselves... which would then pose the problem if they stay poor do they still die because they can't afford the eternity treatment and would they still be breeding to replace the workforce/prolong their bloodlines?
The ideas floating through society would be stagnant: without fresh insight and the rebellion of youth to address the mistakes of the previous generations how will we see past our own faults?
No it sounds like a hellish propostition and thank god even if I do become massively wealthy in 45yrs time I'll be 75... who would want immortality with a 75yr old brain?
Especially after the years of alcohol abuse I intend to inflict upon myself...

Oh and the immortality offered doesn't actually include your body so don't bother reading all that gumf above... it's just a paranoid fantasy taken to extremes.

Time ring

Apparently they reckon Wormholes that are created for travel between specific points aren't likely to last as long as wormholes that materialise through the laws of quantum mechanics or be useable as time-travel wormholes they also mention in this article:

Wormhole useless

that the titles to the new Doctor Who have him entering a vortex but no-one knows exactly what his method of time-travel is... I may have found the answer... in the picture above you can see the cover of a book that apparently tells the story of his Time Ring...

Whedon on Wonder Woman

Nowplaying.com have an 'update' on the progress of the Wonder Woman script...
Only it's another chat, mocked up like an interview, with no real content at all but if you, like me, want any tid-bit of information on this project then you will prolly follow the link and you will enjoy it anyways...

Whedon on Wonder

God knows I did

Is it just me or does he look exceptionally young in the photo they are using for this piece?

This post also allows me to highlight some rather lovely little pieces of Merchandise... Who wouldn't want one (or two) of these:

Star Bank.

and while we're at it this web site does superhero lava-lamps... I'd have to say even though Batman and Wonder Woman way out-cool Superman it's Supes who gets the best lamp designs:

Super Hero stuff

They also have a cool links page with practically everything the superhero geek desires.

Here's another with South Park goodies, Star Wars, X-men, Ren and Stimpy and The Simpsons... I really should grow up:

Superhero toys.

Bible Code

Well here we have another example of the Bible being misrepresented by the many who 'believe'

Apparently the number of the beast is (according to the oldest (and yet most recently discovered) version of the book of revelations) 616 and not 666 and apparently it was used to represent the Emperor Nero, as it has always been an item of political propoganda and not quite as close to the word of god as many would like to think.

Number's up

I think the funniest thing about this story is all those heavy metal bands and crappy horror films look so much worse now which is quite unbelievable in its self but think of all those poor satanists: for years composing rituals with the wrong dialling code...
and even had they mis-dialled correctly?

They would be confronted with their new master Nero...
Hey birds of a feather an all that...

But then there is the true threat to consider when dealing with religions... Faith:
Like going with an idea over what is pretty much scientific certainty:

Scary Creationsim

Go figure.

Creatures in my head... lots of doodles of strange lil monsters with some funny captions here are two of my favourites:

Makin Friends

Not good for you

and here is the main link for the website

Creatures in my head

What is also cool is that the guy who creates the monsters is having some of his designs made into figurine type toys by this plastics company:

DYZ Plastic Creatures

I want one of these:

U.H.F. Groob

Shame it says they sold out... Tokyo Toys here I come

What is ultimately ten times cooler is that they accept submissions to create new figures (although not right now - they're busy boys)

Time to start work on my merchandising lines...

Sad but true

Well Geekmania is upon us once more and any geek worth his salt is a little excited about the forthcoming revenge of the Sith ... even if we feel we are mostly heading for another disappointment...
this comic strip says it all:

pvp online

(And who isn't excited about Whedon's Wonder Woman?)

Okay okay I'm a star wars fan, it will never leave me I was one of the very first victims of mass movie merchandising and I'm PROUD of it and who wouldn't be excited about Chewbacca? If you're not, then there's something wrong with ya... go figure.

How not to give a eulogy...

drink at work

This is one of those lists where most of the content is usually quite shite n trite but this has a few that save it from being tat:

"In a way I blame myself. But not to the extent the authorities do."

"'Better him than me' may sound like a callous remark, but hear me out"

"At least Ben died doing what he loved most - getting into tense standoffs with police."

And the old favourite
"I loved him like a brother. But I fucked him like an uncle."
