Evis T Reviews Ghostbusters The Videogame

One of the most important aspects of a videogame is frequently the most neglected- the fun factor. It exists independently of graphics, game mechanics, game play, story, characters and sound, but it intrinsically linked to all three. Often games can rate very high on all of the above, but still just lack that little spark that makes them fun. That something that turns a solid game into a masterpiece.

Ghostbusters didn’t quite have it, but by Miyamoto’s sacred arse it came closer than most.

Dark Matter- The Universe's Duct Tape.

This article takes a look at the principles behind dark matter, an interesting and cutting edge area of astronomy. In laymans terms, it's all explained from the ground up and will leave you with a basic understanding of how the theory works, as well as its alternatives.

So, check out dark matter!

Shot in the head by a particle accelerator.

It’s surprising what people are capable of surviving. This little article is dedicated to three people who survived some truly amazing circumstances, from jumping out of a five story window (Twice), to being shot in the head with a particle accelerator beam, and more importantly- how they survived.

They say that lightning never strikes the same place twice. Tell that to Roy Sullivan, who was struck a total of Seven Times In his life.

He was struck in 1942, 1969, 1970, 1972, 1973, 1976 and 1977. Supposedly, he developed a case of paranoia after the third time and became convinced a higher power was out to get him. Mind you, considering the odds of being struck by lightning ONCE in 80 years are 576,000 to one, and the odds of being struck by lightning seven times are 10^25 to one, can you blame him?

Strangely it was not the lightning that killed him. He killed himself over unrequited love.
The Facts

I’m afraid I’ve mislead you somewhat here, as the odds of surviving a lightning strike are actually not all that bad. A bolt of lightning is a truly phenomenal piece of nature, a bolt lasts only a split second, but is hotter than the surface of the sun. Individual bolts are also not that large, in effect being struck by lightning is in many respects like being shot- with the added bonus that the wound is instantly cauterized.

Reports of people surviving lightning strikes abound, the most common injury is usually a burn, which while very painful and debilitating, is not usually fatal. Those who have had a direct strike land on their bodies often have holes or other full blown wounds to show for it, and if the strike passes through a vital organ, it will of course destroy it. The point is that being struck by lightening is not like being electrocuted per se (Although I wouldn’t handle electronics without a wriest strap immediately after a strike), it’s more like being shot with a high energy beam that burns through your body rather than relying on the kinetic energy of a bullet. Speaking of which…

Here's your linkey to the rest of the piece.

A moment of introspection.

I think that I managed to break out of my low ebb over the past couple of days. It’s strange the way my psyche tends to work, many of my friends have expressed concern that I may be a manic depressive, and sometime I find myself wondering if they’re right.

I tend to go through phases of general happiness and contentedness, and then through periods of total moroseness and lethargy. This is of course a common element of the human condition. However, I have never been able to quantify the reasons behind these swings. Those who go through periods of joy and sadness can usually link specific events to the start or end of a period of a set disposition. For example, a promotion leading to a period of happiness and general wellbeing, or the death of a loved one leading to a period of angst and sadness.

Of course, I have my outlook set by external events within the process of my life, I laugh when entertained, and am angered when mistreated, so naturally if events over which I have no control conspire against me and my wishes, I have a tendency towards frustration. Likewise, when things are going my way, happiness abounds.

The problem I have is that often times I can observe upon my outlook, an effect without a cause. Why, when nothing in particular has happened of late to cause me concern, do I find myself anxious and fretting? Or when nothing has happened to cause it, do I find myself lethargic, apathetic and depressive? One could say that without proper stimulation, the human mind’s tendency is to move towards a discontented state. In short, without anything new, or interesting in our lives, even negative events, we naturally drift towards the dark end of the mental spectrum.

This effect is often seen in many higher animals, we are frequently told how dogs must be kept amused and busy, and a bored parrot is a recipe for a ruined home. Why then is it, that if these fallow periods continue I can find myself drifting beyond the bounds of my dark introspection, and into the light of happiness and all other things Walt Disney? Again, without any cause, the event transpires anyway. I eventually rise from dark ashes and walk again amongst the sunlight, my disposition much improved, my life more full, and my day more active.

I have pondered this problem considerably, especially today as I seem to have once again come out of the low ebb of the cycle, despite continuing tensions at work and a precarious financial situation. Based upon all available evidence available to me at this time, I can come up with only one conclusion as to why my cyclic moods continue to rule my life, despite my best efforts.

I need to get laid. Badly.

Hermaphrodites and Hermaphroditism

Hermaphroditism is a very interesting phenomenon. Hermaphrodites have both male and female reproductive organs. Some hermaphrodites are able to switch between being male or female while others are born with both reproductive organs and are given the option to choose a gender later in their life.

Hermaphroditism occurs in harsh ocean conditions because of sexual selection. Sexual selection is the competition over a mate and ultimately helps to advance the species. Sexual selection leads to hermaphroditism in some marine animals because many species have a difficult time finding mates in the harsh ocean conditions.

Evis T reviews Star Trek!

I will start by saying this: If you are a hardcore trekkie, the kind of person who screams abuse when the phasers are the wrong colour, the warp core is three shades of blue too dark, or the sensors pick up something they can’t, then don’t watch the new star trek movie.

You don’t f###ing deserve it.

Atomic Bomb: Development and Deployment

The atomic bomb is the world’s most deadly and destructive weapon of all time. First developed by the United States of America, the technology quickly spread throughout the world’s most powerful countries. The atomic bomb was developed as the ultimate war weapon with the hopes that such a destructive weapon would discourage any country without the bomb from waging war.

The bomb was originally developed for use in World War II by America for fear that the German Nazis would acquire it first. The Germans did have plans to build an atomic bomb, however, due to poor organization, their bomb never made it past the planning stages.

OCD: What is It and Whom Does It Affect?

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder affects many people. What is OCD? How can OCD be treated? What is being done today to help those suffering from OCD?

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder is an anxiety disorder which affects one’s day to day life. Those who suffer from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder may have obsessions with cleanliness, security, or anything else. These obsessions will then lead to illogical compulsions which do not make sense within the context of the obsession.

Major Victory For Anti piracy Organizations

It seems that for every step forwards we take, we end up taking at least two back.

The music industry today scored big points in France as a new law was passed which will have a dramatic impact on France’s online population. The new legislation will lead to the formation of a new government body which will operate a three strike rule, allowing the banning of users from the internet for a year if they repeatedly use file sharing services.

Previously, the bill had been voted down by the French government, but with the backing of Sarkozy (a pathetic wretch of a man), France’s president, the bill has now gone through.

Google Maps Sparks Japanese Race Row.

Back in the feudal days, Japan was divided by caste. The lowest of these castes where the Burakumin, those whose jobs involved death. They where butchers, tanners and grave diggers, and in the highly ordered society of Japan with it's own unique cultures and laws, those who worked these jobs where considered tainted.

Even today, the descendants of these people, or those who live on the sites of old Burakumin villages face prejudice. Some companies refuse to hire the Burakumin, and the sites of the old villages are often targeted by graffiti and hate crimes.

Now, using old Japanese maps, google has added a new layer to its records of the region to show how Japan has changed throughout history. These maps also include details of the sites of old Burakumin villages, so now these places can be identified far more easily, and the Japanese government is concerned about the potential backlash against these communities.

A serious announcment regarding ID cards.

Here at the blog of many things, we like a good laugh. But sometimes things need to get serious. This is one of those situations.

Despite continued opposition, labour has decided to go ahead with it's controversial idea to launch ID cards. The scheme begins today in the city of Manchester. at first the ID cards are going to be voluntary, but soon they will be compulsory for airport staff. The government aims to have everyone with an ID card by 2017.

I am begging the people of Manchester not to join this scheme. These ID cards are totally unnecessary, and are just another way for the government to keep tabs on the populace and invade out privacy.

Allow me to spell this out for everyone: WE ARE BECOMMING NAZI GERMANY.

Your grandparents and your parents fought and died for NOTHING. Fascism is coming, but the administration is playing the long game. People are being barred from entering Britain just for their political views. Many of these people are pricks, but it's their right to be a prick if they want.

The government continues to tighten its grip on telecommunications, logging all your contacts and accessing personal information on social networking sites. How long before they not only monitor who you are contacting via e-mail, but also what you are saying? How long before they listen to phone calls rather than just checking the log?

September 11th was a tragedy. July 7th was too, but for the love of the land people, we are not under threat. Terrorism is no bigger threat now than it was before.

Our government are the biggest terrorists, using fear to control the masses, and take away all the rights and liberties they claim to be protecting.

Sod it, the only people who ever take notice of these things are conspiracy nuts and acne ridden teenagers.

I'll just end by saying please, please say no to the ID card scheme. At the very least, it will save you some money. And it might save much more.

5 Common Falacies and Urban Myths Revelaed!

Christopher Columbus thought the world was round.

Islam discovered that the world was round long before even the birth of Jesus. The ancient Greeks calculated the weight and circumference of the planet, as well as the distance to the sun and moon.

Why would a culture going through a renaissance, much less one with a huge navy, suddenly forget these important lessons? You can see the world is round just by watching a ship coming over the horizon. The top of the mast appear first, then the rest of it, then the bulk of the ship.

He actually thought it was pear shaped.

Evis T Reviews Tom Clancy's HAWX for the xbox 360.

Many games try to push the envelope when it comes to development. They push graphics, they push game play, and they experiment with new ideas.

Most of them suck.

However, I am always very grateful to those developers who are not afraid to experiment with new ideas, to explore new shores and bring us to new areas of game play. For every 10 screw ups we get, we get an idea that works. And that my friends, is evolution. Survival of the species most responsive to change (Incidentally, this is why the Point and click adventure went the way of the dodo).

But sometimes I don’t want to be part of a bold new experiment. Sometimes I just want to play something that I know will not surprise me, that I know has been approved by the masses for years. Something I know is not going to enthral me, but certainly won’t disappoint me. Enter the game of the hour, Tom Clancy’s HAWX.

The Story We Should Never Forget

This article is not meant to generate large amounts of views, it is just about a personally uplifting moment which I had. The story starts when my summer job ended and I decided to be a waiter etc. Yesterday as I was waiting on people in my small hometown, one man and his wife come in. I greet them and he asks me, Son, I have a question for you. What is the lightest thing you can carry and costs the most? Well I was perplexed by this and was trying to decide wether he meant the most expensive yet light meal, or if he was truely joking and meant something like a peanut butter packet for 25cents (being the lightest thing we sold it would be the most expensive thing that is the lightest.) So I wonderd about this and didn't return to his table until I was sure I had a suitable answer. I discussed it with my fellow employees and we came to a conclusion, he was NUTS!

Duplicate Content and Penalties

There's been much discussion about Google's Duplicate Content Rule and how it impacts web publishers.

In some cases, pages have been filtered out and removed from the indexes; in other scenarios, publishers have been actually banned from Google and have lost future AdSense revenue and revenue that was due them.

I've heard from a number of publishers who have experienced duplicate content penalties. They are upset and angry, frustrated that they have been penalized because of either duplicate content or malicious activity carried out by

I've prepared Google's Duplicate Content Rule: Information That Sheds Light on Google's Policies for those who find wading through the FAQs at Google's site too laborious.

I hope this article helps to clarify issues that concern webmasters, publishers, and others who produce online content.

5 Myths and half truths about computers and the internet

When you install something to your hard drive it’s there permanently. –PARTIALLY TRUE.

The Myth:
We’ve all heard the horror story. You’re mate’s dad’s nephew threw away his old computer, and three days later his credit card information had been stolen! There was this company right, and they threw away old PC’s and hackers nicked the computers and got loads of personal information they sold to spammers!

Cases like this DO happen, but this doesn’t mean they’re common. With a little effort, you can ensure no data at all survives on your old hard drive. In order to understand this half truth, and how you can make sure this doesn’t happen to you, we need to look at how a hard drive works.
The Facts:

Imagine your hard drive is a giant library. Every library has a reception desk, in the case of the hard drive, we call this the index file. Now when you run a program, your computer needs to get the program from your hard drive. So it goes to the index file and asks where all the information on the hard drive is.

Just like when you go to the library and ask where a book is.

When you delete something from your hard drive, it isn’t actually removing the data, it’s only removing it’s entry from the index file. So as far as your computer is concerned, that data no longer exists, even though it is physically still there. That’s where the myth comes from!

But, when you put information on your hard drive (Say installing a new game), the index file looks for gaps in the bookshelf to put the new program. Remember, as far as the computer is concerned, a file that isn’t listed in the index does not exist, so if it finds that the spot on the hard drive previously occupied by the removed file is big enough for the new program, it will write over the old file with the new one.

Hard drives store data using magnetism, so the new magnetic pattern destroys the old one. Without getting too technical, bits of the old program may survive, and can be rebuilt by specialist programs.

There are many programs that will fill up your hard drive with ‘junk data’ overriding everything on the drive, then they’ll do it again and again and again until all that’s present on the drive is a junk string of 0’s and 1’s. Many of these are available free online.

There’s also a low tech solution too. It’s called a hammer.

Do you want to make a little cash on the side?

Do you like writing? Do you want to make a little extra money on the side? The following websites are ones that I have successfully used to make money online. None are get rich quick schemes, but all of them require some effort to make money.

Triond- Writing online articles. They take exclusive rights to your work, but offer consistent payments though.

- You can write almost anything, but money is made by advert clicks on your articles. Therefore no clicks, no money. But saying that you can make a lot of money if people do click your articles. It also offers cash prize competitions, which I have won twice! These have been temporarily put on hold, but will be relaunched when the website is updated in the comming few weeks.

Similar to Triond, but you keep rights to your work. Also, you need to do how to or informative articles.

Blogspot. Put some adverts on your blog, and gain money when people click!

Zlio- This is an intersting idea. You set up an online shop, and then resell items on behalf of another merchant. You never have to handle goods yourself. If you write reviews, then linking to a product in your shop could result in a nice kickback...

Some of these offer referral schemes. I’ve included my referral within the link, so if you do join, please join using those links. You will not suffer any loss of earnings, the websites just pay me a little, and if you do decide to join then get in touch and I will help you out any way I can. They are NOT just pyramid schemes!

Out of all of these the one I've had the most success with is Triond. However, I spend 90% of my time making money online using triond. I have however just started using Bukisa, and so far I have to say that it looks even more promising than triond.

Whichever of these you choose, it will NOT be easy or quick to make money from these sites. However they are not scams. If you love what you do though, You'll find them very rewarding.

Awesome Anti Matter!

Anti matter is one of the most fascinating substances in physics. More reactive than even the most violent of Alkali metals, and releasing more energy per KG than even the most devastating nuclear weapons. Anti matter is pretty impressive stuff.

Anti matter was predicted to exist by the brilliant British Mathematician Paul Dirac in 1928, and the simplest form of anti matter (Positrons- positively charged electrons), where detected a few years later in cosmic rays. Since then, anti matter has inspired science fiction writers and theorists alike with many wild ideas. CERN, famous as being the home of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) also contains facilities for experimenting with anti matter.

In this short series of articles, I will be looking at anti matter and illustrating just how powerful it is. Those of you who don’t have any background in physics need not worry, I’ll explain everything step by step (though a little knowledge of maths will help)!

10 Websites To Stream Movies and TV Online!

Been looking for reliable places to watch your favorite movies?

1. MegaVideo- The biggest downside to MegaVideo is the 72 minute watch limit. However the only thing required is viewing a single popup to watch an entire movie! To watch any movies free online
under 72 minutes MEgaVideo is probably the best source out there! A second and less serious downfall is that they are getting shut down on a regular basis for a day or so at a time, which is at times frustrating!
2. TV Shack- TV Shack isn't a hosting network it is merely a sharing source. You can view most any movie on one source or another or it will list multiple sources if one doesn't work or is buffering too much, I would say second best online because it encompasses all the websites for your viewing ease!

The Importance of Hygiene, Comedic Twist.

You think not showering because it is Saturday is proper? You think because you forgot to brush your teeth a Tic-Tac will be enough? I think not.

You think it is fine since it is a day off you don't need to shower, well your gross! You argue "Well I am not going to see anyone today why bother"! Personally I keep clean for my own good not yours, I don't mean to be rude or offensive, (OK maybe a little!) but I don't care what you think I enjoy being clean! So the girl/guy thinks it is OK too! Well then go to have a nice relaxing sit down on the couch watching reruns and sitting in your own B.O. i don't find that overly attractive!

Your teeth have something called an enamel, some people brush obsessive compulsively, good job. however others only brush when they have a hot date, which to me is ironic because what do you do when your married? Better yet, what do you do when your teeth are disgusting and no one can listen to you without a gas mask?! Yes, you need to consider these things before you are overly lazy with yourself!

Systema, Putting Kung fu To Shame

Systema (Loosely translated to 'the system')is a martial art with it's origins in Russia. The art itself has no katas or techniques, and practitioners are taught that how to build their whole lifestyle and mindset into a weapon. Those who learn the system undergo great physical exercises designed not only to tone their body, but also their minds, allowing them to undergo great feats of endurance and withstand considerable pain. The style itself focuses heavily on 'riding the shockwave' of force, with precise movements and attacks designed to disorientate an opponent and bring them to their knees.

The Health Benefits Of Owning a Nintendo Wii!

Owning an Xbox, Xbox360, PS3 or any combination thereof is not beneficial to your personal well being in any way shape or form! You might be the best at Call of Duty 4, or Halo 3 but realistically what does that do for you on a daily basis? It forces you to sit on your bum, cramp your muscles, eat improperly, skip excercise and ignore regular sleep patterns. All these are all very bad things for you. This is where the Wii steps in!

Alistair Darling's Budget: Blowing Wind Or A Breath Of Fresh Air?

On the 17th of April, The Chancellor of the exchequer Alistair Darling delivered his budget for the 2009-2010 financial year. It has caused much debate over the past few days, some people are hailing it as the new way forwards, some are condemning it and calling it nothing but fantasy.

The biggest lenses in the universe...

The Einstein ring is possibly one of the most bizarre things that can be done to light. It’s the most dramatic example of relativity to date.

Time to sue google!

After the Sweedish court's rulling against the pirate bay, I think we actually have the power and the precident to sue google. Anyone want to try?


There is NOTHING illegal about the pirate bay. No illegal content is hosted on their servers. No illegal software, no movies, no music, nothing. All the pirate bay does is act like a search engine for torrents. Anyone can upload a torrent to the pirate bay, and it’s free and open for all to use. So therefore it stands to reason that it is a resource that will be abused, like CD burners, Image files… and oh… the internet in general.

The Conficker virus is one of the most virulent and successful computer viruses experts have ever seen. It has already infected millions of computers worldwide, and recently it began to change. But what is it? How do you stop it? All these questions will be answered here.

The frogs have struck a blow against the music industry for us. The music giants tried to push for a bill that could see people barred from the internet, but failed. But could there be further reaching issues with this bill?

I don't want to set the world on fire...

Some personal views here. Basically, I support nuclear weapons. I think they've saved a lot of lives and create a more stable political world. I'm aware that many oppose my view, so for those people I have written out this little article.

The Haldane principle- an excuse for scientists to do whatever they want.

The Haldane principle is an admirable thing, and it ensures that the academia of science is not tainted by outside influences. However at this current moment in time perhaps this is what is needed. An example would be the LHC, a fantastic piece of kit for certain, and probing the very fundamentals of physics, hopefully to answer questions about how the universe works on a level more fundamental than we yet understand. But I personally feel this is noting more than knowledge for knowledge's sake. Science has improved the lives of people for generations with inventions and concepts such as computers, vaccination, ecology and fundamental scientific method. But what does the LHC, the higgs boson and M-theory all give to the masses? Will it improve their quality of life? Will it cure their illnesses?

Like the moon landings 40 years ago, the LHC is a great accomplishment of science, but is ultimately nothing more than a white elephant. It does nothing to actually improve ourselves as a society, with the possible exception of smiling and feeling smug that we can do it.

We should emphasise spending in areas that will tackle our immediate problems- Climate change, AIDS, Cancer, The energy crisis and so forth. Spending should still be given to purely academic pursuits, but not so much as is given to research into areas that will ultimately provide solutions to problems.
