10 bar bets for easy money

Most people like betting and even more like winning. You can do both of them and you can see how by watching this video. You will always win the bets unless your opponent is very clever or already know them. Con artists know all of them so you can’t beat them at their own game. Also keep in mind that if you bet a round of drinks with your friends is fun but betting money with strangers could end up badly.

Microsoft and dancing

Microsoft loves software developers and loves dancing and they always combine those things in the events. Most of the times, as you can also see from this video, programmers don’t dance. They barely move listening to a song but they enjoy watching energetic women dancing. I like programming very much but I don’t like the lyrics of the song. I found it very funny, you will too if you are a software developer. Don’t expect to see a high quality video as it was shot from a smart phone.

Impressive pool tricks

I occasionally play pool and I know that any of those tricks is very difficult to perform and requires skills. I have watched many videos like this one and every time there is something new even more impressive than previous ones. If you think that you have some pool skills then watch this video to realize that you don’t actually, unless you can do any of those tricks. On the other hand the mean internet users will say that they used computers to calculate some of those tricks or we see the try number 781623. Maybe all of those are true but still, skills are necessary and tricks are still amazing.

Batman’s House

Some people believe that batman exists and he is not a fictional character. There are many superheroes but batman is the more realistic one, his superpowers are money and gym. At least he uses them to make world a better place. Enough with the introduction, this post is to inform you that after some research we have found where he is hiding. His greatest weakness is that he likes his logo very much and he couldn’t resist to put it on the roof of his building. As you all know, with so many satellites nothing stays hidden forever. Batman is now in Okinawa and if you don’t believe the fact you can see it for yourself.

Windows 8 logo and old Greek flag

Windows 8 logo

Microsoft spent time and effort to design the new logo of Windows 8. I assume that they wanted something simple because someone can create it in minutes. The result is not something new, it is a very old design from Greece and they used it as a flag between 1822 and 1978. To be fair enough, it is not exactly the same but the similarities are very obvious. The cross is thinner and there is a rotation, it is more like a redesign than a new innovative logo. There are variations of the flag of Greece that have similar color with the Windows 8 logo, thumbnails are not very good for the comparison, you can click on them and see the full size.

Floppy Music

We thought that floppy was dead, especially now with the arrival of Blu-Ray. Personal computers now do not have floppy drives by default as they used to. It appears that this is not the case, floppy is back but with a more artistic point of view rather than data storage. Floppy is used to generate music in a retro style which makes many people to feel nostalgic. There are several music videos on YouTube with floppy generated music with millions of views. Here are some cool themes ands songs created with the sound of floppy drives. Enjoy !

Wolfenstein 3D is 20 years old

Happy birthday to Wolfenstein 3D which is now 20 years old. Twenty years ago, 5 May 1992, Wolfenstein 3D was released. It was the first first person shooter (FPS) and this is how the era of FPS games began. It was this game that started it all. To celebrate the 20 years of Wolfenstein 3D they have created a website (source link) where you can play the game (for free) from your browser. It might be a little difficult to play (for those that never played it) but just keep in mind that it is a DOS game that was released in 1992. If you don’t even know DOS (and no, we don’t mean Denial of Service here) then you are too young or too ignorant and please leave this page immediately. For those about to play the game, we salute you.

Amazing basketball shots

First one is a shot in a real game Guilford College vs Randolph Macon on January 31, 2005. The score is 88 – 88 and one of the teams scores one more point 1 or 2 seconds before the end. The surprise is that the opposite team wins and watch how. There are similar shots and this is one of the reasons that basketball is excited and unpredictable. You don’t know who is the winner unless the game is finished, not a second before.
