The History of Quake

Quake was the game that started it all! The first truly competitive multi-player, first-person video game was Quake.

And here’s the video that tells the story, the History of Quake.

There are so many games now that learned a lot from what id created, first with Doom and then improved with Quake. Without it, there wouldn’t likely be any Call of Duty, Halo or the rest. Enjoy!

Science Experts Fail to Give a Single Example of Evidence for Darwinian Evolution

Science: knowledge about or study of the natural world based on facts learned through experiments and observation.

If we can’t test a theory and get a repeatable outcome then it’s not scientifically true. That doesn’t stop much of the world from putting their faith behind science over any religion.

Daredevil Geoff Gulevich Does Extreme Ride Down a Mountain

With the quality (and size) of video cameras these days, you really feel like you’re right there on the bike!

And here’s what I know. Geoff Gulevich is a crazy person!

Extreme does not begin to describe what Geoff does when he takes his bike down a narrow mountain ridge. You hear him yell, “I hate the wind!” My goodness.

Predicting the Future Isn’t As Easy As You Might Think

Predicting the future isn’t easy! What do you think?

I guess on the one hand, it’s horrible difficult to predict the future with any kind of accuracy. But on the other, it’s fairly simple to find today’s most popular phenomenon and then go back to locate someone who said it couldn’t be done.

Don’t you think?

When you go about predicting the future, like the infamous Nostradamus, he’s likely batting a miserable percentage. It’s not easy folks.

I mean, here’s a prediction of his:

“After there is great trouble among mankind, a greater one is prepared. The great mover of the universe will renew time, rain, blood, thirst, famine, steel weapons and disease. In the heavens, a fire seen”

What does that even mean?

Predicting the Future For Real

For more fun with predicting the future, head over to Mashable and their Surprisingly Accurate Vintage Predictions of the Future.

Or even better, find what the Author of Life hid in Old Testament prophecies, which have come true. Here are a few of the trickier predictions:

  • Messiah would be born of a virgin.
  • Messiah would be crucified with criminals. (Crucifixion wasn’t invented yet.)
  • Soldiers would gamble for Messiah’s garments.
  • Messiah’s bones would not be broken.

Steep Extreme Skiing Videos: Mission Steeps

Click on the image above to visit Vimeo where the Mission Steeps movie can be played. They don’t allow us to embed it, which makes no sense.

Beautifully done video follows Xavier de Le Rue and Sam Anthamatten around the globe (Switzerland, France, Alaska) as they conquer some of the steepest extreme skiing on planet Earth.

Heart-wrenching in it’s visual perfection: >Mission Steeps.

I wish I could ski far more than I actually get to. Enjoy!

21st Century Paladin Dojo Info – 11/6/13

The Paladin dojo covers topics from energy producing roads to a new malaria vaccine.
  1. Breakthrough in battle against malaria as new vaccine proves 100 per cent effective against disease for the first time in history
    100% is a good number, a strong number. I like it.
  2. Canadian man born blind sees for the first time at age 68 after he FELL down the stairs
    Ok so… who wants a shoove?
  3. Korea constructs road that wirelessly charges moving electric buses
    Now we’re talking! Can we next make one that doesn’t fall to pieces in 5 years?
  4. Rubble rescue: Tool can ‘see’ heartbeat of disaster-trapped victims
    Bet this wasn’t discovered by a government sponsored grant.
  5. How I taught a homeless man to build an app in a week
    Charity shouldn’t be mandated or forced. It should be done out the goodwill of one human being to another. Great job Patrick McConlogue! (How is it that the British Daily Mail does a better job finding these stories than our American media? Agenda perhaps?)
