Sure, they're wildly expensive, but can you really put a price tag on a genuinely good time (It's okay if you don't have one, we're just going to live precariously though this video too)?

Off the hop, we love portable consoles. To be clear, we don't just mean handhelds like the 3DS, or RetroPie builds, but when a maker takes a home console from generations past and hacks a childhood fantasy into reality that's amore. So, it's only natural that [Bill Paxton]'s GameCube re-imagined as a Game Boy Advance SP has us enthralled. Originally inspired by an early 2000's imagined mockup of a next-gen' Game Boy Advance , [Paxton] first tried to wedge a Wii disk drive into this build. Finding it a bit too unwieldy, he opted for running games off of SD cards using a WASP Fusion board instead. Integrating the controller buttons into the 3D printed case took several revisions. Looking at the precise modeling needed to include the L and R shoulder buttons, that is no small feat. Sadly, this GameCube SP doesn't have an on-board battery, so you can't go walking about with Windwaker.

A close examination of the specific recent behaviors of the BT/RKM/COL top dogs and their top stateside cutouts suggest that many are in decline cognitively, perhaps due to age, but perhaps also due to lifestyles of long-term abuse of alcohol, drugs and self-defeating psychopathy. It is likely that the Ruling Cabal will be displaced from power by the SSWP as disclosure occurs. Disclosure will create a shift in the public’s attention to the Cosmos. If managed properly this could be utilized by the SSWP as a vehicle to capture the massesadmiration needed to create a whole new system of central government. If the SSWP presents itself to appear people-friendly as it takes control over the USG, which is quite likely, it is important to remember its past. For many years the SSWP has been characterized by threats to UFO witnesses, secret murders, wiped memories, continual lies, deceptions, and merged efforts with organized crime to raise black funding.

The bill would require Iraqis to seek the prior authorization from local authorities before protesting or assembling. Requiring protesters to ask for an authorization five days before a protest is a cause for concern, due to the nature of the Iraqi street and its ongoing crises says Mustafa Naser, the president of the Association for Defending Press Freedom in Iraq. Iraqis have recently realized the street's impact on parliamentary decisions and legislation, he told Global Voices in an e-mail interview. Iraqi protestors outside the Parliament in April 2016, where they staged a sit-in before storming the building. Photo credit: @AlFayth (Twitter) Before assembling, Iraqis would also need to submit a request for prior authorization at least five days before a meeting takes place. The request should include the subject matter, purpose, time and place of the meeting, and names of the organizers.

" The unit is expected to have more power than that used in an F1 car. The hypercar's MGU-K converts mechanical and heat energy into electrical energy that can be stored for later deployment, and the MGU-H that takes heat from the exhaust and uses it to create electrical energy. It is as yet unknown how the engine will be made emissions-compliant. The car will uses an automated manual transmission as an F1 transmission would need to be heavily adapted to suit a roadgoing application. "I can tell you we will be using an 'AMT' (automated manual transmission) because there's no twin-clutch gearbox capable of working with an engine that revs to 11,000rpm," said Moers. "We will have four electric motors - one for each front wheel, one on the crankshaft and one on the engine turbocharger. We will use the same 'perfomance' battery cells as the F1 cars, which have advantages and limitations; but we will still be able to deliver 30km of EV range.

Matt Prior drove a Citroen C4 supercar currently used in the British Rallycross Championship How Matt Prior fared when he attempted to tame a mighty Citroen C4 supercar at the home of rallycross Look, you just dont diss rallying, OK? I get that. It’s a great sport, all right? And I genuinely do think so too, but people get very upset if you slag it off. So I wont. But can we agree it has some issues? The World Rally Championship has tried to address some of them in the past. That it takes place over a long way is kinda the point of rallying in the first place, because it’s a gruelling test of people and machines, but that makes it hard to manage spectators, hard to film and photograph to get public exposure. Q&A: Petter Solberg on the World Rallycross Championship and Lydden Hill So the WRC introduced things like single service parks, scrapped events like the gruelling Safari Rally, made shorter stages that were based around one area, createdarenastages, and rather undermining what made it rallying in the first place and rather more like what you see here.

Despite the evil and unforgivable invasion of Iraq having happened a mere fourteen years ago, sold to the public based on nothing but lies and mass media propaganda, mainstream America is unwilling to consider the possibility that this is happening again. Unwilling to turn and face the implications of what this would mean for their worldview, their self-image, and the entire system they’ve developed for examining and interpreting their experience of their lives up until this point. Independent investigative journalist Vanessa Beeley has emerged from her latest trip to Syria burning with a new kind of fire. There’s something in her voice and the posture she now takes which conveys a new kind of authority, a sense that she has now seen enough and gathered enough evidence to observe unmasked the full picture of this monster of deceit she’s been fighting.

It was quite a relief that there was videotape to confirm the accuracy of my reporting. After it became clear that the assault happened, the good people of Conservative Twitter were happy to inform me that this was either good because the librul media has it coming or it doesn't matter because no one gets angry when conservatives are attacked. So, you know, nothing to see here, move along, oh look a squirrel, pull the lever for the GOP candidate! Anyway . I'm entirely sympathetic to Gianforte's frustration with reporters; lord knows I've wanted to shriek "I'm sick and tired of you guys!" while choke-slamming a writer into a table hundredsnay, thousands!—of times. You try dealing with people who say "hey boss, I filed" and then when you look for their story you see that they forgot to put the file where it's supposed to be and you can't get in touch with them because they've gone outside for a smoke—a trip that takes about 10 minutes, since, as you know, The Washington Free Beacon rests atop a majestic skyscraper many floors above local trade publication THE POLITICO.

Of all the disturbing things I saw during last night's episode of The Americans , perhaps most disturbing was the ad for Jägermeister. A crowd of freaks gathers in an ice cavern or some sort of frozen rave (are raves still a thing?). Maybe they aren't freaks—but they're all in masks and makeup, so they're essentially the guests from Eyes Wide Shut . A silence envelops them as they huddle round in a mysterious ceremony. I half-expected to see some poor soul strapped to a chair, waiting to be tortured à la Hostel . Instead, the attendees watch in silence as a bottle of the German "herbal elixir" Jägermeister is cracked open, quite literally: The bottle was contained in an ice block. After enough ice has been chipped away, the bottle is poured into a glass and a Teutonic ice queen takes a sip. She then announces to the crowd: "Of course it's cold.

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Feral Interactive to give MacRumors readers a chance to win a copy of real-time strategy game Total War: WARHAMMER , which became available for the Mac in April. Total War: WARHAMMER is a turn-based strategy game that allows players to build an empire and then plan and execute real-time tactical battles against enemies. Unlike other Warhammer games, Total War: WARHAMMER takes place in a high fantasy setting, pitting greenskins (orcs and goblins), vampires, dwarves, and humans against one another. There are four playable factions that players can control, each with unique gameplay elements, play styles, abilities, and units to send into battle. The goal is to build up a city, recruit units, make alliances with other nations, and fight to protect and expand your hold over the Old World. Aerial units like wyverns and dragons, specially trained Legendary Lords, and other powerful elements like magic must be thoughtfully wielded to turn the tide in battle.
