RISE OF THE ROBOTS!

Alien-Looking Automatons Have Taken Over Heathrow Airport

These happy-looking automatons are currently jetting passengers around Heathrow airport without any supervision at a 25 mph clip. Man, when did the future happen? I totally missed it.

Created by BAA, these Ultra PRTs whiz around Heathrow's business parking lots independent of human intervention and have yet to experience what we call "an accident." Breakdowns are also extremely rare and the system has a 95% reliability rate.

And lest you think this is some PR stunt, the system has been fully operational since April. The diesel buses (and presumably their human drivers) were retired at that time, and the Ultra PRTs have been transporting people with their four-seat configurations since then. The pods are on-demand as well, so unlike the buses they are not making a constant loop from terminal to parking lot looking for passengers.

Tireless Robot Pack Haulers Deployed to Afghanistan

Robot buses at Heathrow. Robot haulers deployed to Afghanistan. Is the Isaac Asimov estate getting kickbacks for all the future that's happening this weekend or what?

This latest robo-development involves the U.S. Army's deployment of four Lockheed Martin Squad Mission Support Systems to war-torn Afganistan. As the largest robot transports ever deployed in Army history, these heavy haulers can carry a half ton of supplies for 125 miles before it's time to recharge. The vehicle can also serve as an evac unit for soldiers wounded in the field. [CNET]

Is Nicolas Cage Really a Vampire?

User Image
The answer, of course, is no… well, probably not. For one thing he seems to be aging right before our eyes and for another he has never exhibited an inability to consume solid food, nor any signs of heliophobia for that matter. Nevertheless one e-Bay seller insists that he has unearthed a Civil War era photograph that proves that the ubiquitous actor was alive (or undead, as the case may be) way back in the 1870s.

The owner of the admittedly eerie photograph is an antiques dealer from Bristol, Tennessee, by the name of Jack Mord — which, in and of itself, sounds a bit creepy, like an old Mad Magazine spoof of Jack Lord that would come out around Halloween time. Regardless of his appellation, Mord claimed that he stumbled across the strange picture in back of an old photo album that was allegedly: “filled with an unusual number of Civil War death portraits.”

User Image

A first Mord claimed that the fellow in the photo the only unidentified one of the bunch, but soon after he revealed that it was actually an antique memorial portrait of a Confederate prisoner named Lieutenant G.B. Smith and that the now notorious image was taken in 1864, at Johnson’s Island prison camp in Ohio by a clandestine Confederate photographer named Lieutenant Robert Smith — it is unclear if they were related or not.

Nevertheless, Mord still claims that he believes this to be a genuine photograph of the Academy Award winning (and potentially bloodsucking) superstar, which, no doubt, is why he is able to justify the exorbitant $1,000,000 asking price for the portrait. In Mord’s own words:

“Personally, I believe it’s him and that he is some sort of walking undead vampire, et cetera, who quickens/reinvents himself once every 75 years or so.150 years from now, he might be a politician, the leader of a cult or a talk show host.”

While the offers pouring in for this thought provoking pic were plentiful (he had received no less than 78 offers as of September 16th, 2011) as well as generous, Mord — for reasons he has refused to elaborate on — abruptly pulled the photo and closed down the auction. This has not, however, stopped him from speculating about Cage’s allegedly unholy origins:

“My theory is that he allows himself to age to a certain point, maybe 70, 80 or so, then the actor ‘Nicolas Cage’ will ‘die’…but in reality, the undead vampire ‘Nicolas Cage’ will have rejuvenated himself and appeared in some other part of the world, young again, and ready to start all over. From time to time somebody might mention to him that he bears a slight resemblance to the young version of that dead American actor, whose name they can’t recall, but eventually, those occurrences will stop altogether.”

While there can be little doubt that the onetime “Vampire’s Kiss” star bears an uncanny resemblance to the ostensibly long dead Lieutenant G.B. Smith, one must ponder whether or not this is a case of vampiric longevity, uncanny doppelganger, unknown ancestor… or simple, ordinary coincidence.

Either way, Mord seems to be on the verge of making a quick buck and possibly… just possibly, mind you… incurring the wrath of one of America’s most prolific — and potentially deceased — movie actors.

Yeah, need a website revival... I had to remove some of the images from the site last month... Photobucket had reached its image limit.. Bah! Anyway.. I'm kicking some ideas around about this place.... Thinking of making an NEW site and calling it "TheDiningRoom" or something to that effect. Not many WPPCers around these days and Buns and I don't get to play much at all. (Damn you 2012......)


On topic.. lol Mario as Solid Snake.

I think I have seen something like this, but this one appears to be updated. I don't remember seeing the size of the Minecraft world included in the scope!
