Aloha from Paradise

Isn't life grand?

Well, if you're on a beach it sure is... too bad I'm back in KC again and missing the sand and the "whoosh" of the waves.

Life is still pretty grand though, better than the other option at least.

Finally, a reason to appreciate Halo 3.

The following video is perfect.

It may seem ridiculous to make this claim, but in the age of "Perfect 10" reviews, it seems appropriate.

I, for one, am not against the Perfect 10. GTA IV for example, is the best possible game at the moment of its release, in terms of its goals and objectives. The game could certainly see improvements, but the few flaws do not take away from the game going above and beyond what is expected of a Grand Theft Auto game.

Metal Gear Solid IV, if it does earn Perfect 10's, will do so because it has peaked.

These games are not the perfect games, they are simply the most complete possible for this time. Any improvements on the formulae will only build upon what these two titles have brought to the table.

So the video? Halo 3 underwhelmed me, as had the previous two Halo games, but the production quality and cleverness (high cleverity indeed) surprised me. Well done.

Warrior Bugs?

DARPA, the development house of the Pentagon also working on Mech suits and SkyNet, have celebrated their fiftieth anniversary. According to an article from Time magazine, their newest project is breeding real bugs with functional electronic circuitry inside!

I urge you, fine readers, to regard what may seem like a pipe-dream to biology students, and a sweet fantasy to military tacticians, for what it really is: Utterly Terrifying.

"But Profundo, you can't possibly be worried about electronic surveillance via cockroaches." "But Verde, there is no way a fleet of electronic locusts could decimate a country's food supply!"

In a world where bugs can be grown into mini-robots, anything is plausible. But these suggestions are knee-jerk and unfounded. No, if there is anything to be terrifying about bugs with computer brains, it is the scurge of Japanese forests, the Giant Asian Hornet.

This behemoth insect has not only enough strength to carry more circuitry than most flying insects, but jaws powerful enough to destroy any number of plants and insects. Their sting can function as a piercing tool or as a cannon, spraying flesh-dissolving acid into the eyes of its victims. And their wings are powerful enough that they could potentially carry internal explosives and function as flying grenades! (OK, so I doubt that is physically possible).

Having thought about it more, this is a great idea. So great in fact that I would love to control the reigns for a bit. Behold, my army of Asian Hornets! Cower before me! Wha Ha Ha!

What's so Funny 'Bout Peace, Love, and Aristarchus?

Whether the Sun or the Earth is at the center of the solar system is simply a matter of perception. To go to blows over the arbitrary definitions and approximations preferred by one group or another is in itself the very madness that separates humanity from the divine.

Aristarchus of Samos was no more a prophet than a pioneer. He was no less a heathen than a saint. He simply favored one set of approximate estimates over another.

Nevertheless, until I have it in God's own script, you will not find me turning to bloodshed in His name.

(Thanks go to for the pic.)

Point, Counter-Point on the New Mortal Kombat

Over at Profundo Spielen I've got a new argument both for and against the new Mortal Kombat game.

Will the combination of two great IP's yield something greater than either franchise has seen before, or will the end result simply remind us of the Justice League SNES game... uggh.

Trade Jared Allen?

The Kansas City Chiefs could look upon a single player's performance last year as the lone glimmer of hope remaining for the team during a dreadful 2007 season. And now it is rumored that Allen will be traded before the draft next Saturday, the 26th of April.

Head over to Profundo Rosso to read why trading Number 69 is actually the best idea. As a Kansas Citian, Profundo Rosso is supporting a Profundo Controversial stance!
