  1. Ive moved on, to boxes if anyone needs any, let me know, Ill throw in a supplies!
  2. i bought some stuff from their website and got it no problem, were you buying something from them that was a pre-order? if so them maybe they didnt get as many as they were supposed to either way they should have contacted you and let you know why if they cant then get out of the business You only got your money cause you emailed them and you didn't get the item you bought if they would have emailed apologized and said sorry we'll send your money if we do that could you leave us a neutral or something, i'd understand, but they didn't. so your negative was justified.
  3. I'll wait and get it for $99 when the PS4 comes out
  4. good thing I got 20 of them for $1 when I found them at a garage sale along with the FLAGG I got for a penny @hmmm@ you can almost see them with this picture if it wasn't so blurry
  5. i like it all but the mask it just doesnt look right even the updated one the front hole where he looks out of reminds me of the friday the 13th movie where jason was wearing the bag over his head
  6. you all have it wrong big huge boxes filled with CRAP its what all the kids are talking about
  7. By RANDOLPH E. SCHMID, AP Science Writer Thu Oct 19, 7:36 PM ET WASHINGTON - Scientists are boldly going where only fiction has gone before — to develop a Cloak of Invisibility. It isn't quite ready to hide a Romulan space ship from Capt. James T. Kirk or to disguise Harry Potter, but it is a significant start and could show the way to more sophisticated designs. In this first successful experiment, researchers from the United States and England were able to cloak a copper cylinder. It's like a mirage, where heat causes the bending of light rays and cloaks the road ahead behind an image of the sky. "We have built an artificial mirage that can hide something from would-be observers in any direction," said cloak designer David Schurig, a research associate in Duke University's electrical and computer engineering department. For their first attempt, the researchers designed a cloak that prevents microwaves from detecting objects. Like light and radar waves, microwaves usually bounce off objects, making them visible to instruments and creating a shadow that can be detected. Cloaking used special materials to deflect radar or light or other waves around an object, like water flowing around a smooth rock in a stream. It differs from stealth technology, which does not make an aircraft invisible but reduces the cross-section available to radar, making it hard to track. The new work points the way for an improved version that could hide people and objects from visible light. Conceptually, the chance of adapting the concept to visible light is good, Schurig said in a telephone interview. But, he added, "From an engineering point of view it is very challenging." The cloaking of a cylinder from microwaves comes just five months after Schurig and colleagues published their theory that it should be possible. Their work is reported in a paper in Friday's issue of the journal Science. "We did this work very quickly ... and that led to a cloak that is not optimal," said co-author David R. Smith, also of Duke. "We know how to make a much better one." The first working cloak was in only two dimensions and did cast a small shadow, Smith said. The next step is to go for three dimensions and to eliminate any shadow. Viewers can see things because objects scatter the light that strikes them, reflecting some of it back to the eye. "The cloak reduces both an object's reflection and its shadow, either of which would enable its detection," Smith said. The cloak is made of metamaterials, which are mixtures of metal and circuit board materials such as ceramic, Teflon or fiber composite. In an ideal situation, the cloak and the item it is hiding would be invisible. An observer would see whatever is beyond them, with no evidence the cloaked item exists. "Since we do not have a perfect cloak at this point, there is some reflection and some shadow, meaning that the background would still be visible just darkened somewhat. ... We now just need to improve the performance of cloaking structures." In a very speculative application, he added, "one could imagine 'cloaking' acoustic waves, so as to shield a region from vibration or seismic activity." Natalia M. Litchinitser, a researcher at the University of Michigan department of electrical engineering and computer science who was not part of the research team, said the ideas raised by the work "represent a first step toward the development of functional materials for a wide spectrum of civil and military applications." Joining Schurig and Smith in the project were researchers at Imperial College in London and SensorMetrix, a materials and technology company in San Diego. The research was supported by the Intelligence Community Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Program and the United Kingdom Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.
  8. LIGHTHOUSE POINT, Fla. - An 81-year-old man was in critical condition Thursday after a stingray flopped onto his boat and stung him, leaving a foot-long barb in his chest similar to the accident that killed "Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin. "It was a freak accident," said Lighthouse Point acting fire Chief David Donzella. "It's very odd that the thing jumped out of the water and stung him. We still can't believe it." Fatal stingray attacks like the one that killed Irwin last month at the Great Barrier Reef are rare, marine experts say. Rays reflexively deploy a sharp spine in their tails when frightened, but the venom coating the barb usually causes just a painful sting for humans. James Bertakis of Lighthouse Point was on the water with his granddaughter and a friend Wednesday when a stingray flopped onto the boat and stung Bertakis. The women steered the boat to shore and called 911. Doctors were able to remove the barb during surgeries Wednesday and Thursday by eventually pulling it through his heart and closing the wound, said Dr. Eugene Costantini at Broward General Medical Center. He said Bertakis' case was different from Irwin's because the barb stayed in Bertakis' heart and was not pulled out. Videotape of Irwin's last moments shows him pulling the barb from his chest. Bertakis was apparently trying to remove the three-foot-wide spotted eagle ray from the boat when he was stung, police Cmdr. Mike Oh said. Ellen Pikitch, a professor of marine biology and fisheries at the University of Miami, who has been studying stingrays for decades, said they are generally docile. "Something like this is really, really extraordinarily rare," she said. "Even when they are under duress, they don't usually attack."
  9. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/15200272/ IRVING, Texas - Like it or not, Terrell Owens will still be catching passes from Drew Bledsoe this week. Dallas Cowboys coach Bill Parcells stood by his quarterback Monday, instead blaming the offensive line for most of Bledsoe’s mistakes in a 38-24 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. “I’m not switching the quarterback,” Parcells said. “I don’t think that’s the answer right this minute. ... Let’s try to get some of the things corrected (on the line) and we’ll go from there.” Bledsoe threw three interceptions Sunday, the last on a pass to the end zone that could’ve tied the game in the final minute, but wound up going 102 yards the other way. He also set up an early field goal for the Eagles with a fumble. That turnover came on the first of his seven sacks. “He was under pretty good duress,” Parcells said. “The majority of the easy sacks they had were mental mistakes.” Owens was none too pleased with the way things went in what he expected to be a breakout game against the team and town that dumped him last season. After months of anticipation, Owens had to wait until the third quarter for his first catch. He finished with three receptions for 45 yards. More notable were his antics on the sideline, although his jawing at teammates and coaches supposedly involved shouts of encouragement. “He was just trying to get us going,” said right guard Marco Rivera, among those Owens was seen yelling at. “He basically said, ‘We’re going to win this game.’ ... I just feel that he really wanted to show the world what T.O. was all about and he didn’t get that chance.”
