    Anime cliches I miss because they don’t really do them any more

    Liberal use of the V sign, even in situations that did not call for it and does not require a camera to be present.

    Falling over because someone said or did something so incredibly stupid it made you lose all strength and will to live.

    This is the first 100% pure and good post I’ve seen on this hellsite in years

    Nintendo Labo is… something else⊟ 

    This is not what anyone expected when Nintendo cryptically teased this morning that it has “a new interactive experience for Nintendo Switch that’s specially crafted for kids and those who are kits-at-heart.“ 

    The Labo concept will launch on April 20th with a $70 Variety Kit and an $80 Robot Kit (Nintendo Switch required and sold separately):

    “With each Nintendo Labo kit, kids can transform modular sheets of cardboard – specially designed to interact with the Nintendo Switch console and Joy-Con controllers – into creations called Toy-Con. From a piano to a motorbike, a robot and more, each Toy-Con comes to life when combined with Nintendo Switch in different ways. As you build, you will have fun discovering how the technology works, and might even invent new ways to play with each Toy-Con!

    For example, you can build a functioning 13-key piano that brings your musical creations to life once the Nintendo Switch console and Right Joy-Con controller are inserted. As you play, the IR Motion Camera in the Right Joy-Con detects which keys are pressed and translates them into unique notes that are heard through the console. You can even take control of your very own motorbike by constructing a functioning set of handlebars, with a Joy-Con inserted in each side and the Nintendo Switch console cradled in the middle. Simply hit the ignition button, turn the right handle to engage the accelerator and watch your adventure unfold on the Nintendo Switch screen, as you race to new destinations.”

    The Variety Kit allows you to create two Toy-Con RC Cars, a Toy-Con Fishing Rod, a Toy-Con House, a Toy-Con Motorbike and a Toy-Con Piano. The Robot Kit lets you “build an interactive robot suit with a visor, backpack and straps for your hands and feet, which you can then wear to assume control of a giant in-game robot.” Both kits include Switch software, too. There will also be a $10 Customization Set that includes stencils, stickers, and colored tape.

    This is all wild and unexpected. You can learn more about Nintendo Labo here!

    Republic of Maldives

    Republic of the Maldives is a sovereign archipelagic nation positioned in the Indian Ocean. Notably the South Asian Island nation has no counterpart in the entire world in terms of its unique geography and topography.

    The Maldives encompass more than 99 % of the sea and less than 1 % of the land. The 99 % of the sea is home to one of the most diverse marine treasures of the world. Less than 1 % of the land is a masterpiece in natural landscaping.

    The Maldives comprises of 26 natural atolls consisting of dual island chains. Incidentally the Maldivian language has the distinct pleasure of contributing to the English word “atoll”, which was derived from the Maldivian word “atholhu”.

    Fossilized tracks made my spider feets!

    n7-paleontologist

    Haha. I know that specimen!

    A fun story about this set of tracks. It was discovered by Dr. Raymond M. Alf on a trip to Arizona in 1968. He had no idea what made them so he started experimenting by dipping animal feet in ink and letting them walk on paper. He one day found a tarantula around the grounds of the Alf Museum (they are still common today, trust me) and decided to test it out. As the tarantula walked across the paper, it made nearly the same kind of track! Dr. Alf repeated the experiment at different inclines and eventually came to the conclusion that the fossil tracks were made by some early arachnid across a sand dune at an incline!

    Specimens on display at the Hall of Life at the Raymond M. Alf Museum of Paleontology in Claremont, California.
