Humor: Why Terminators Travel Naked

Source: Zero-Lives

I've personally always wondered why they equip Terminators with a RoboCop-style thigh holster for weapons. I mean, if the things can carry wildly explosive hydrogen fuel cells in their bellies, there has to be a way around the whole organic materials limitation of time travel.

Sculpture: Ceremonial Helmet

Ceremonial Helmet by Danielokeefe

Daniel O'Keefe writes: "Okay, this is a ceremonial helmet I made I'm currently studying Character creation and technical effects at University of Hertfordshire, I'm in the second year and this was for a negotiated project where the student pitches an idea to the tutor. I wanted to make a piece of ceremonial armour, for a piece of set dressing for a fantasy film. I wanted it to look like a museum piece. I designed it myself; you can see the designs for it in my scrapbook section!"

It includes white bridal lace with blood and realistic chocolate bullets.  The next layer resembles a Japanese pagoda to represent the scene in which Beatrice fights the "Crazy 88's" and O-Ren Ishii.  That layer features curved rooftiles and curves and bamboo (all edible).  Finally, the top is yellow with a black stripe to represent the suit Beatrice wears while she is fighting O-Ren Ishii.  It features an edible peice of notebook paper made of fondant with Beatirice's "death List five" pierced by a katana.

Fan Art: V for Vendetta

It was 405 years ago today in 1605, that the infamous ‘Gunpowder Plot’ in which some Catholics, most known of which was Guy Fawkes had planned to assasinate King James I of England and destroy Parliament and its members at the same time.

Catholics in England had expected King James to be more tolerant of them. In fact, he had proved to be the opposite and had ordered all Catholic priests to leave England. This so angered some Catholics that they decided to kill James and put his daughter Elizabeth on the throne ensuring that she was a Catholic. This led to a plot to kill not only the king of England, James, but also everyone sitting in the Houses of Parliament at the same time as James was there when he opened Parliament on November 5th, 1605.

Guy Fawkes and his fellow conspirators, having rented out a house next to the Houses of Parliament,  managed to get 36 barrels of gunpowder into a cellar of the House of Lords. The authorities stormed it in the early hours of November 5th, where Guy Fawkes was caught, tortured and executed a few months later.
The story is remembered each November 5th when effigies of Fawkes are burned in a celebration known as ”Bonfire Night."

Note: Using the term “Happy Guy Fawkes day” shows that a person probably does not know what happened or why.
