Homer the Nuclear Engineer Supports Obama

 I was just watching a new animated program called “The Simpsons” and noticed that Homer, a nuclear engineer and consummate Joe Six-Pack, supports Barack Obama for President.

Joe the Plumber, please take a note.  This other fictional “Homer” character is actually able to maintain a stable relationship with the mother of his children.   Watch the show to see how.

Fire Brad Johnson

I’m watching football (it’s Sunday, it’s Fall…this is natural) and I’m watching my Cowboys, and I’m watching Roy Williams (whom I like as much as the other Roy Williams for much the same reasons…their first names their bad-assedness) make a one-handed catch for 30 yards down the field to ignite offense.

Then I watch Brad Johnson throw a HORRID 5-yard slant that gets picked off by the Giants and it’s 70 yards the other direction.

Fire him. Fire him now.

And now the commercial break is over and I feel better having registered my frustration on the Internet within moments.

UPDATE: Leeeroy Jenkins!!!! For the pick and the touchdown.

Oh, wait. His first name is Mike. That’s all right, I’m sticking with calling him LeeRoy. LeeRoy Jenkins.

14-7 Giants.

UPDATE2: Interception 2. Fire him. Now. You had a good career. That probably should have ended 2 years ago.

UPDATE3: I got bored with the game. Watched this mash-up and felt better.

21-7.  Giants.

UPDATE4: Mike “LeeRoy” Jenkins just gave up a touchdown by, uh, *not* attacking. Mike, I know you’re a rookie, but when a running back is running straight toward you, TACKLE HIM!

35-14. Giants.  Final.

Ugh.  Tony, come on back now.  Ya hear?

Fallout 3 Review Part 2 (Flaming Swords and Mini-Nukes)

I started doing a bit of my Fallout 3 review back here.  In that post there’s a short video with some of the combat.

I’ve added another one, focusing a bit more on one of the custom weapons you can craft in the game, the shishkebob.

As you can see, it is crafted from a scavenged lawnmower blade, a motorcycle gas tank, a pilot light from a gas stove, and a gas throttle to manage the flame.

The perfect hunting weapon, it slices and barbecues simultaneously, saving precious time in the always perilous wasteland.

I also included some footage of the mini-nuke launching “Fat Boy”, since it’s fun to use for cooking breakfast, lunch, and dinner as well (mmmm, cannibalistic).

I’d also suggest you go to Youtube to watch the video, as you can upgrade there and watch it in high quality…a good idea when one of the points of using the video is to display the damn-near photo-realistic post-apocalyptic wasteland of Fallout 3.
