The Pi Apocalypse

The next apocalypse is scheduled for March 14, 2015, 9:26:53am. This event is known as “The Pi Apocalypse” because the date aligns to the value of Pi perfectly, 3.141592653. On that day, our planet will explode and we will all DIE, as represented by the Pi equation and predicted by Albert Einstein.

“Pi Day” (3/14) is celebrated every year by the Cult of Pi. However, the upcoming Pi Day in 2015 is mathematically accurate to 10 to the 13th digits as calculated by a super-computer algorithm in 2011. Albert Einstein’s birthday is also on 3/14 (Pi Day), and he predicted this terminal event in his “quantized atomic vibrations” theory. Einstein never directly said it, but he hinted that harmonic oscillations between atoms are continuously creating sympathetic vibrations that generate molecular heat at an exponential rate (which explains Global Warming). As the heat grows, the Earth will contain the increasing pressure until it pops like a balloon. Knowing the rate of heat growth, and how much pressure the Earth can hold, precise mathematics produces a result of the given date.

Others have argued that the Earth will not blow up like the Death Star.  Rather, they expect that molten lava and heavy volcanic activity will cover most landmasses and that ash will block out the sun, except Antarctica.   Personally, I think this is just wishful thinking to give people hope that they could survive the apocalypse as a mere extinction-level event.

There will also be a pie-eating contest.

Steampunk Books?

Somebody with too much time on their hands went through the effort of creating this image.  I too, having too much time on my hands, shall analyze said image:

  • The Book of Faces– Facebook
  • XML Engines – Extensible Markup Language (XML) is a set of rules for encoding documents in machine-readable form, used in modern programming and leveraged heavily in web development.
  • Machine Code – What people used to call the code of a program after it was compiled.
  • Piston ++ – C++ is a statically typed, free-form, multi-paradigm, compiled, general-purpose programming language.  C# (pronounced “sea sharp”) is better.
  • The Web that Encompassed the Earth – World Wide Web, or WWW, which is the early name for the Internet.  Sounds like a 1950’s horror movie.
  • The Internet – Unfortunately, no one can be told what the Internet is.  They must be shown.
  • Steam for Dummies – I Googled “Steampunk for Dummies” and Omega7Red was listed #1.  What??
  • B3TA Manuel – Probably a reference to the B3TA newsletter, which does have some funny stuff.
  • Victorian Twitterings – Twitter 

FailPunk: Airship Fail

This is why we can’t have nice airships; Nazis suck!  I’ve invented a new term: FailPunk.  I searched and made sure no one else was using the term, and I couldn’t find any sites with Steampunk fail, Cyberpunk fail, or any other kind of punk fail.  Maybe it’ll catch on.

Want to make your own image macro?  I used ROFLbot to make the image above, which I think is far superior to the LOLbuilder.  If you’ve got a Punk Fail or LOL, send it to me and I’ll post it.

Oh, I’m going to catch sooooo much crap for this.  I saw this image over at Regretsy – Not Remotely Steampunk, which is a short collection of things that have been marketed as Steampunk but clearly are not.

And now some humor at Jesus’ expense, a.k.a. blasphemy.

League of S.T.E.A.M.

Supernatural and Troublesome Ectoplasmic Apparitional Management (S.T.E.A.M.), of course…

The GhostBusters League of S.T.E.A.M. commercial is an intelligent recreation of a 1980’s movie in the 1880’s Victorian style.  Normally, I would make fun of this kind of thing, but I can tell that these guys put a lot of work into this.  Plus I wouldn’t want to make fun and then have real ghosts show up; that would just be embarrassing…

Goggles the Cat

Awl…  It’s so CUTE!  Now Fluffy can be a more effective fur-coat-razorblade with this adorable set of SteamPunk goggles, as the goggles are excellent protection against human blood splatter. Important Safety Tip: A cat is a miniature tiger that lives inside your house.

I don’t know who the cat is, and I’m not sure this cat is particularly happy about humans dressing it up.  I do know that if you feed the cat a Cheezburger, it’ll be content with whatever pink tutu you put on it.

Who is Doctor Steel?

Allow me to introduce you to Doctor Phineas Waldolf Steel.  On the surface, Doctor Steel appears to be a humble mad scientist bent on world domination.  However, upon scratching that surface, what lies underneath reveals his true genius.  Though sufficiently and somewhat clinically described in Wikipedia and other media sources, the only way to truly understand Doctor Steel is to let him speak for himself, and you really should listen to him.

I’m in…  However, despite my clear and obvious motivations, I would like to continue discussing what makes Doctor Steel such an interesting individual.

The SteamCon II SteamPunk Convention is scheduled for November 19th – 21st, 2010.  They’ve just announced a new website (much of it still under development), which is very nicely done.

The 1st SteamCon was a huge success.  I had sent Omega7Red’s own infamous Captain Jamison Dao of the HRMAS Prometheus to the SteamCon event.  However, he failed to report back.  Apparently, he was killed in a duel, most violently.  (hit the more to read on)

As an IT professional, this is just the funniest thing ever.  Best of all, it’s all true… Yeah, it’s a little old-school, but still completely relevant.

Bwa Ha, Haaah ha ha hehe heeeee…  I love it.  Who’d have thought you could embarrass yourself to such a degree that not only do you become a household phrase, but then you get immortalized in clockwork automation.  Sweet!

Tase Me Bro Automation

I especially like how it vibrates during the Tase phase.  Want to see the video?
