I can't believe no one commented on the cougars one, I still laugh whenever I look at it.

And here I thought the joke was just him standing there, watching this old man randomly have a heart attack, while talking about being the saviour of the human race. That's awesome that he's causing the heart attack. I completely missed that.

There was a story recently about old pacemakers being vulnerable to a wireless hack that would allow the attacker to remotely stop your heart.

Scary stuff. Not easy to patch, either.

Pacemakers can't simply stop your heart. They detect when your heart is beating irregularly(it's programmed to your specific heartbeat), and shocks it to get it into a different, and hopefully normal, rhythm. But if someone were to cause it to shock repeatedly, I'm sure it would be possible to cause an arrest. Same difference, I guess. The ability to remotely screw with someone's heart is indeed frightening. But replacing them is relatively simple. We had to have a couple of people undergo replacements because theirs were defective. Bad wires were causing them to needlessly shock. Very painful and startling, as you might imagine. I think that company had to recall all of them.

It may be that the article I read sensationalized or assumed. Bad science shows up in popular media all the time. I don't know the details because the article didn't have any.

No, I absolutely believe it. It likely just described the intended consequence for ease of understanding and to establish the main point.

I love watching those ER type shows and seeing how every time someone has a heart attack, they bust out the paddles. And only the paddles. Um...they don't work if you don't inject the person with the right defib inducing medication.

Anyone watch the Xplay coverage of the expo? My tv is out, so I can't see my DVR stuff at the moment.

For those who are unaware, Gabe's birthday is a bit of a holiday.



edit: As a side note, it would be friggin awesome to be able to create artwork like this.



Edit 2: Not sure why but this is definitely one of my favorite Penny-Arcade shirts. Link

The results for this year's "Dickerdoodle" contest are in, here's the winner:


In the words of Gabe everything else is, "ridiculously NSFW".

So I finally got around to looking through the dickerdoodle pics. Definitely NSFW. I would also say they qualify as wtf, lol, and ftw. Effectively, Gabe has managed to create an entire new type of pr0n, cookie pr0n.

If you haven't looked at PA yet today, you really should. They created an entire new world for today's strip and it's pretty awesome. I can definitely see people basing D&D games on it and who knows what else from there.

Action figures, games, tv show? Really none of those things would surprise me.

edit: Also, they posted that they are looking to hire another employee and are accepting resumes. So, if you ever wanted a chance to work for PA this is your chance.

Wow, Wednesday's and today's Penny-Arcade are awesome, especially the art styles. For those of you who don't keep up with it on a regular basis, Gabe and Tycho are currently doing 3 days of unique comics based on worlds that they have created. At the end of the 3 they are going to let people vote on which one they like the most, whichever one wins they will do several more stories on during this year's PAX.

Here's Wednesday's:



And Friday's:



The final one will be on Monday. As of right now, Wednesday is getting my vote.

They're both really cool, I'll reserve saying what I'm backing until Monday.

I like Friday's concept, but I'm not feeling the delivery. Wednesday is probably my fave so far.

Yeah, if Friday was a movie, I would definitely be into it. The presentation of Wednesday is what does it for me. I think part of it is because Wednesday to me is a much more fantisful world. Friday reminds me of iRobot, like the normal world but with a twist.

Wednesday's doesn't do anything for me. Friday is right up my alley, though, as I'm big into noir and scifi. If they made it into an actual series, I'd start collecting comics again.

I dig both. Hope the gods favor us and both get attention as series.
