…Halo corpses can spell?

Halo Corpse Alphabet

It takes dedication to make an entire alphabet out of Halo corpses, but takes a little bit of crazy to then add in numbers, and even a few punctuation marks.

The original goal of the Halo Corpse Alphabet (a self-described macabre project) was to represent every letter of the alphabet with the twisted, curved, stretched, and otherwise dead Spartan and Elite bodies from Halo 3.

Apparently the Halo community was more than willing to take on this task, as they quickly jumped on board and cranked out letter after letter for the amusement of all.

…Line Rider 2: Unbound looks crazy?

The new Line Rider is going to be called Line Rider 2: Unbound, and judging by the latest ‘preview’ video, it’s going to be crazy:

Do the extra features take away from the simplicity that made Line Rider 1 such a success, or will the additions reinvigorate a game that has fallen off the map?

…Michel Fournier is one crazy jumper?

Michel Fournier - The Great Leap

If all goes according to plan, Michel Fournier will complete a two decade and $20 million long journey today to balloon into the upper reaches of the atmosphere and then skydive back down in what he’s calling Le Grad Saut, or, The Great Leap.

His leap begins on the ground, where he will load into a 10 foot tall pressurized gondola that will hang from the bottom of a 650-foot balloon. This balloon will take him to a height of 130,000 feet (25 miles) over the course of two-hours, at which point he will open the door and step into the blackness of space.

To survive the fall, which will last for a full 15 minutes, he’s going to be wearing a special space suit and a parachute that is designed to automatically deploy when he’s 5,000 feet above the ground.

Along the way, he will reach, and then cross the speed of sound. (And then top out at a speed of around 1,000 MPH) If that sounds crazy, it is. Scientists are still unsure of what will happen when a person crosses the sound barrier unaided.

With those speeds, Fournier will also be breaking four new records: fastest free fall, longest free fall, highest altitude for a human balloon flight and highest parachute jump.

So what are the potential risks?

If his suit fails, the pressure would cause his blood could boil, and he would loose consciousness in less than five seconds. (Which sounds like a blessing if your blood is boiling during those five seconds!)

His first try was yesterday, and was canceled due to weather related complications, so let’s hope that today provides Michel with smoother sailing, and that he finds his way back to Earth in one piece!

…It’s Website Wednesday: Blank Is Like Blank?

Blank Is Like Blank

Blank is Like Blank is a simple site that provides the occasional analogy to live by.

With quips like:

    “Facebook is like a gossipy friend with no interesting information”,
    “Using Helvetica is like owning a Mac: It looks so cool that you never bother to stop and think if you really need to”, and
    “Starbucks is like that crazy ex-girlfriend you still get together with: You hate yourself for going back, but the familiarity makes it convenient, and until you find something better, it’s all you’ve got”,

Justin Feinstein is firmly establishing himself as the king of the one liner.
