So, We now have a Republican House and Senate and a President who we refer to as a 'Lame Duck'. He's unwanted by most of America - that's obvious now even among Democrats who view him as poison to their own campaigns as he rates so low in the polls. No one wants to be near him. He thinks he is the 'King of America' and can do whatever he wants. Well, he's gotten away with it for 6 years as long as he had the Senate in his back pocket. But now that is over. Let's just hope that we elect someone worthy of leading this country in 2016.

Either Godzilla is Waking Up Or...

Japan is growing - by way of a volcano. The erupting Nishinoshima volcano is adding land to Japan. Catch the story here: Japan Volcano
This is normal I presume & not some sign of the apocalypse or anything. Let's hope so.

For one fearless weasel riding the back of a woodpecker seemed like a good idea. At least in merry old England that's how they roll. I have no idea how this turned out (if the weasel rode the bird until it landed or if he fell off shortly afterwards) but kundos for the effort:

Some people get really, really good. Here's a video compilation of a few players who have gotten so good they are nearly one-man killing machines. Enjoy!

The Elder Scrolls Gets Better & Better

    Fans of the Elder Scrolls games (Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim, most notably) will undoubtedly
be enjoying the latest game in their lineup:
The Elder Scrolls Online
Official Website   Wiki Link
    I've played several of these on PC and am a big fan of the virtual-worlds Bethesda creates
for the players to experience as well as the storylines developed.
    This newest installment has been delayed for consoles until this summer where it will
be renamed The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited. Here's a cinematic trailer of the
game with some pretty impressive graphics & fight sequence:

Seeing is Almost Believing

   I saw this in a Kim Kommando email; a virtual apartment video so real it nearly makes you believe it is. And you'd be hard pressed to fault it for authentic except for the flaws of the camera person casting no shadows & having no reflection. But otherwise this is very well done.
