A Real ReBoot

[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="260" caption="Yes We Can"]Yes We Can[/caption]

For those that haven't heard, they're rebooting ReBoot, that beloved CG-animated television show of our youth.

Rainmaker is the new name of Mainframe Entertainment, so it's still the same people making it.

Dynamic Leveraging

Once is original...

Eureka started it with the whole "wacky, ahead-of-its-time research company run by the government where things go wrong, threaten a town, and then the day gets saved!"

Twice is a coincidence...

Then came Fringe, with it's "ahead-of-its-time research company which is all mysterious and scheming!"

Viridian Dynamics

Three times is a trend...

Better Off Ted has it's ""wacky, barely-ahead-of-its-time research company where hijinks ensue!"

I'm all for the MegaCorp trope, but when three shows do it and all the Corporations share the word "Dynamic", which I have to say I've never seen in any real-world corporation's name thus far, it makes me wonder why that word has become so popular.

Then again, it makes them all sound a little more MegaCorp with it, to be honest.

Most influential indeed.

I know it's kind of old news, but it's also hilarious. moot wins.

I read a fun article about how it was pulled off, which was highly entertaining. Who knew web-based applications could be so susceptible to such simple attacks? *cough*

Who is moot? The most influential person in the world, obviously.

Georgia Tech, Home of the Socially Inept


On Feb. 13 at around 8 a.m., a Tech police officer was called to the Wingnuts restaurant on North Avenue regarding a theft. When the police arrived, the officer met with two complainants. The students then proceeded to tell the police their account of the previous night in relation to the theft. According to the two students, they were in the Starbucks in Tech Square, when an older white male began talking to them. The man started discussing religion and faith with the two students. A while later, when Starbucks closed, the three people walked to Wingnuts.

The students continued to talk about religious topics with the man for about five hours. During the conversation, the students said that the man asked them for their wallets, which they gave him. The man also asked them for their debit card, which they also gave him. Next, the man asked them for their pin numbers, which the students again gave to him. The man then gave them back their wallets, with the two students understanding the whole time that the man was in possession of their debit cards. After leaving Wingnuts early on Friday morning, the students checked their bank accounts later in the day and found that about $400 had been withdrawn from each account.

The police asked the students if they ever felt threatened or intimidated by the man. The students said that they felt intimidated mentally by the man since he played on the fact that they were religious people. The students gave physical descriptions of the male suspect, but no identity was determined.

This post is not Obama.

This post is not a direct response to the previous post, that's just coincidence.

This post *is* about the coolest thing I have seen today, and makes me kind of regret not doing more with AI, which was technically my degree specialization.

GENTLEMEN, I give you...

The only way this could be better is if it caused:

A) Physical Pain
B) Sterility
C) Loss of Fingers
D) All of the above
