Can you handle watching movies for 72 hours and remembering them?

2.5+ is bad enough for me to watch a movie nonstop! There was a contest that had five-minute rest breaks between each movie and a 15-minute break every third film for 72 hours of movie watching. Apparently, three managed to make it through according to the this story.

Ulic, can you beat that? :)

Does your motherboard have proper Feng Shui?

Good morning peoples.. I just came across this, and Ant's not awake yet, and I don't believe it's real, and I don't think this could be more of a run on sentence, but you gotta see this Fengtek Motherboard, it's pleasing to the eye.. As BBSpot puts it:

Fengtek released their first motherboard based on the ancient Chinese philosophy of Feng Shui. Many interior designers use the principles of Feng Shui to arrange furniture in rooms, so the areas have positive energy. Fengtek is the first company to move these principles to motherboard design. ....You be the judge.

Absolutely nothing interesting happened today.

In a weird twist, fate took the day off today and spent the afternoon skydiving over a pit of flaming lava infested with alligators. Fate survived, unsurprisingly, and has promised to cause interesting events later on..
