Nerds! Geeks! Other people! Babbleon5.wordpress.com has become…. BabbleOn5.com! Well…. technically we already were, but we were just forwarding the site from babbleon5.wordpress.com because free and stuff. But it’s time we started kicking things in to overdrive here, so we’ve overhauled the site. We made it pretty. Look at how pretty it is.
I made it myself.

Allen Pan, also known as WIZARD and JEDI MASTER Allen Pan, has used all of his jedi (read as electrical engineering) education to create this wonderment… this beauty… this WET dream come true for all nerdom EVERYWHERE! Allen Pan has created a real working light saber.
Ok… so the saber is more the size of a fencer’s foil, but it even makes the SOUND EFFECTS!!!

The crazy Connecticut… ians? are the source of a Thorium Powered Car that only needs to be refueled once a century. WHAT?! Laser Power Systems have developed an engine powered by the incredibly dense material known as Thorium.
Thorium is so dense that according to Charles Stevens (CEO) “one gram yields more energy than 7, 396 gallons of gasoline, and 8 grams would power the typical car for a century.”

Okay, so this is pretty friggin’ awesome, right!? Japan’s All Nipon Air (ANA) recently revealed not one, but THREE new designs that will be in the air as soon as October! Just in time for Episode VII.
But if you think ANA settled for a simple paint job, think again. Each aircraft is going to feature various Star Wars amenities, such as themed headrests, all six movies being on-demand, as well as Star Wars decor.
Take a look at two of the designs below, one BB-8 (the new ball-droid from Episode VII) and one R2-D2 themed plane.
I mean, look at them!
The first jet takes off on international routes starting October 18th. All three jets will eventually fly internationally to cities like Vancouver, San Jose, Munich, Paris, Sydney, Beijing, Jakarta, and Brussels, as well as domestically within Japan. In November, the Star Wars themed jet will begin with domestic routes, with the BB-8 jet getting in to the international fold in March 2016.
Here’s a link to the ANA Star Wars themed website, just in case you’d like some more information! Be sure the check out the video below of all of the planes “in action!”
If you loved old monster movies from the 1930s and 1950s, TITANO is right up your alley. A short tribute film directed by Ben Chavda and starring Irwin Keyes, TITANO is a look into the life of an old character actor who is able to play the role of a lifetime in a surprising turn of events. Endearing and slightly melancholy, the short is a wonderful tribute, and even more poignant as Irwin Keyes died shortly after filming was completed.

Remember a couple weeks ago when Babble reported on the performance enhancing drugs scandal of the eSport arena? Remember how it sounded riiiiidiculous? Well, it’s actually THIS serious. Check the vid for a really awesome explanation by @hingers… don’t get distracted by the aussie accent coming from his cute asian face though. LISTEN TO HIS WORDS.
But Kory Friesen, I thought you didn’t care! Why the retraction?!
No words. Shhhhhh… just watch it.
If I was Canadian, he would get MY vote.
The time has come for me to buy my own firefly class spaceship, assemble a rag tag group of people to become my space family, and go on great adventures to see the outer reaches of the universe AND to become the GREATEST SPACE PIRATE OF ALL TIME. And now that I can grow my own produce in space, food will never be a problem again.
