Discovery of Titanic On this day in Nineteen-Hundred and Eighty-Five, the great black seas of the North Atlantic were parted by crafts never before seen in this realm. They plunged beneath the surface of the waves, beneath the rolling tide, and as they descended, the sea became dimmer, and dimmer....and dimmer still until all grew black and infinite. The lights from the craft shone upon the strangest of fishes, and many waves of small plankton-creatures glazed past the windows, and on to their way in this strange and ethereal world.
Down, down, down....farther still. Then, with a soft 'plunk', the craft lands upon the sea floor. The white Atlantic sand drifts up in waves, floating in the water like smoke. Drifting around and away. The lights shine on this world, but they do not show much. The ocean is too vast, to immense for them to illumine much. The fishes dart back and forth, curious as to who this intruder really is. They have never seen anything like it in all th
Life Well Lived
Yes, that is my name. I am a namesake for a nation, one of the most powerful nations in the world, if not THE most powerful. The grand United States of America. I wear my name with pride. I serve the people with even more pride. I loved the people, they often treat me so well, and they are just so kind. Ugh, I suppose there will always be ones who make us mad, but there are the good ones, and my William Francis Gibbs is one of them. He is like my father, I love him so much, and he keeps an eye out for me. If only every ship had a friend like him, none would ever lack.
It is February the 8th of 1967. I have been serving the people well, and today, I get treated well. Recognize that day? Today is my birthday. 17 years before, construction began on me, and then, in 1951, I was launched and christened. I have done much, and earned the best award of all, the coveted Blue Riband. No one has taken it from me, as I stil
Life After the Great War~ Chapter 26Chapter 26~
As much as I didn't want to be, I was dumbstruck. For a ship of Tempestuous' rank to go so against what the military dictated during the Great War was stunning. Him and I were a pair then, when had he done this to save Wilhelm? Probably on one of those long forays that kept him away for days at a time. He never told me.
Wilhelm looked out to sea and said "He didn't have to do what he did. It could of gotten him into fierce trouble with the humans, as they like giving him a hard time as it is. I never felt like I thanked him enough for saving me, so, I guess you could say that is one reason why I broke free from Germany after the war, and came all the way to Scotland. Firstly, I wanted to make sure he was still alive, and alright, secondly, I was going to be a willing subject for him to court and eventually take as mate. I was hoping more offspring would result, which they did. He is such a goo

GUILT AND JEALOUSY
I slowly approached him and stammered "I'm sorry....I'm so sorry. I can't believe I did this...."
He met my gaze with this pain-filled amber-gold eyes and answered "It's alright. You have a fair reason to be mad at me. I am often mad at myself, heaven knows."
I bit my lip, and cried "But I hurt you, bad."
As I said that, I reviewed the side of him that was facing me. The badly broken starboard side that he was listing so far over to favor. Where my bow had hit, the steel plates of his hull had been cracked and the metal bent inward into a great gash similar to the one I sustained from HMS Hawke so long ago. What little I could see of his hull frame didn't look pretty either. It was even more severely twisted and rather mutilated looking. I shuddered, wondering what other damage I had caused.
Tears formed in my eyes as I wondered how on earth I co

AN ANGRY LINER
When Hood greeted Victoria like that, I about had a fit, and cried "HMS Hood! Where are your manners?! How many times have I told you not to greet another Naval ship like that?"
"I don't know. Too many."
"Well, try to remember so I don't have to tell you another thousand times!"
"Okay." he grumbled.
Victoria smiled and said "I should of introduced myself, little one. I am HMS Victoria, your father's aunt. Your name is Hood? A pleasure to meet you. You're a fine looking young man, obviously took after your father, the handsomest ship in the Navy."
I groaned and said "Aunt, please."
She ignored my plea to stop, and continued "Well, Tempestuous, you are a fine looking example to young boys. What young little shaver wouldn't want to grow up into such a robust and curvaceous specimen?"

With sides heaving for air, and the immediate water stained crimson, Deutschland regarded me with cold eyes. I regarded him with even colder ones. Our eyes were locked, and I was so intent on the idea of finishing him up, that it was a sheer miracle I even noticed Wilhelm come up alongside me. Her eyes were now free of tears, and when she spoke, the voice I heard was of a female who wanted to put someone in his place. I was glad I wasn't the one on the receiving end of it.
She practically shouted "S.S Deutschland! Where are your manners?!? Look at what you have done to my poor mate! He is a military Commander, and you treat him as if he is less than a tugboat." Deutschland cried "Well, look how he treated me! I can't believe you paired up with him. He should go to the scrap merchants!!!" This prompted a snarl from me. Even though I myself had made the scrapping claim many times, I would never admit it to th

ENTER S.S DEUTSCHLAND
Upon hearing the news, Hood couldn't help but bustle up from where he was a short distance away playing, and asked "What did I miss? What did I miss?" James grinned, motioning my son over, and and said "You're gonna have brothers and sisters, Hood! My uncle says so!" Hood's eyes grew huge, and he cried "REALLY?!??!" James reached forth to pet him, and said "Sure, unless you're lying, Uncle Tom." Bell continued stroking Wilhelm's bow, and answered "I wouldn't lie. Now that we know there's babies on the way, there is no doubt these two are officially a pair, so I think it is best we just leave them be, my boy."
When they started to walk away, I had pretty much resigned myself to the fact the only attention I would get was being pushed away. It wouldn't surprise me, really. Thomas Bell and his nephew were a few paces off when suddenly James stopped and turned around. He walked up to me with his arm
Life After the Great War- Chapter 21Chapter 21~
I was as excited as a child over my mate's accomplishments with the Blue Riband, but Mauretania became a little distant because of it. The Riband had meant a very great deal to her, more than I could ever guess, I not being a fast ship. She had her moments of either being angry, depressed, or downright pissy. Not eloquent wordage, but it fit her. Then, one lovely late summer day, she fell bow over stern in love with another liner in her fleet, RMS Berengaria. Although my heart would always be with my warship mate, I still had eyes to observe with, and I had to admit that Berengaria was a stunning looking fellow.
An overview of Berengaria that I later learned was that he had started off life known as the SS Imperator. He was from the Hamburg Amerikanische Packetfahrt Actien Gesellschaft, or, more simply, the Hamburg/America Line. He was launched in 1912, and surpassed my sister's great size by twenty-four feet. D

How Will You Vote?Election Cycle 2014
Now that the train of political bullshit is well on it's way, let us take time to consider the things we shouldn't vote for. When considering the ballot before you in November, be sure to avoid the following -
-Politicians who make religion a bigger campaign issue than demonstrating their ability to govern.
-Politicians who are more interested in protecting the right of a gun nut to carry an assault rifle in public than they are about feeding the poor and providing affordable medical care to the masses.
-Politicians who find it acceptable to stall the political process because they don't like the people on the other side of the isle.
-Politicians who are adamant about restricting the reproductive rights of women because their 'holy' book supposedly prohibits abortion.
-Politicians who are so bigoted that they don't realize it's an act of bigotry to deny marriage equality to members of the LGBTQ community.
-Politicians who support the right of 'privately held

My life has turned in a pretty unstable direction due financial issues. As if my time of trying to become an independent adult couldn't get any harder...
There's even a slight but real possibility I may have to save up for my own house and car. Really fast.
As such, I really need the help of anyone who sees this. If you cannot buy any of the things I have for sale below, please at least spread the word. I don't want to give away too many details of my personal life but the short version is that some VERY tough times are ahead, guaranteed.

Deep Cliff #43 Goku vs Superman
Question: Goku vs Superman
Hello and welcome to yet another Deep Cliff where I listen to your questions and bring you in depth answers. Okay, so a few months ago I found this thing called “Death Battles” which is a web show much like SPIKE’s old tv show “Deadliest Warrior.” The show starts to guys comparing and contrasting two fictional chararacters and determining who would win in a fight to the death. The one I saw was Goku vs Superman. The outcome was that Superman won…but I found some flaws in the fight that I couldn’t help but notice. Choosing to ignore it, I began looking to see if this was a popular debate.
I mean, I found several hundred pictures, videos, comics, and debates all wondering who would kill the other in a full on fight to the death. If the variables were all set…if the fight was completely fair (by that I mean no outside help) and it was just based on the characters OWN powers and abilities, who would com
What Makes Writing Good? Writing a good story takes time and effort to gain the attention of your audience. However sometimes it’s easier to write things they want rather than just writing what you want in your mind because most of the time they neglect or ignore your work and look for others willing to satisfy their needs. Not too many people care about originality and sometimes they just want things that are all the rage instead of a fresh new idea that can and probably will inspire this generation of humanity. Most people write in styles that others don’t care or even bother caring to know, and sometimes they ignore writers who try to expand their imagination while still keeping the original idea of what they were inspired from in check. Other times, they’re work barely gets noticed and hardly gets any praise from the public because they’re too focused on what’s popular now instead of what can be popular if they give it a chance. Look at most p
AkumaTh's Reviews: Satan's Little HelperI was hoping to try to do reviews on something else other than movies. We've got plenty of guys on the internet talking about movies. But then I had to see possibly the worst movie I've ever seen. Not the Room. Not Food Fight. It is called Satan's Little Helper. What is it about? A kid who wants to be Satan's Little Helper.
The reason this SUPPOSEDLY nine year old boy wants to be Satan's Little Helper is because he's obsessed with a flash game called Satan's Little Helper. A bad flash game mind you as I've seen a lot better ones. In that game, you play as Satan's Little Helper doing things done better in Manhunt while trying to avoid a certain religious deity. Christian specifically.
I would also like to remind people that he is playing this game on a portable gaming device, right next to his mother. So it is best to assume that this flash game was supposed to be an actually released game and his mother bought it for her. So pretty much anything that happens to this kid in the future I
VB Wario Land - Back in Black (and Red)If you look around, you'll find that gamers have very differing opinions. Some people say Call of Duty is lackluster while others say it's the best game around. In a world of seven billion viewpoints, however, you'll only find a handful of people who defend Nintendo's failed console, the Virtual Boy. It was a vast commercial failure, spawning only 22 games worldwide. But out of those 22 games, only one is considered good. That game is a tiny gem called Virtual Boy Wario Land.
The game starts with Wario vacationing near the Awazon River. He not only spots spike-nosed mask wearers entering a waterfall, but also finds them stashing treasure away. If you know anything about the titular antihero, you should figure out what happens over the course of the game.
To address the elephant in the room, the red and black color scheme that plagues all Virtual Boy games is present in VBWL. However, it actually works this time around. Because the game takes place in a subterranean
Random Fact: Spinal Tap vs. The Dirty Dozen!I’m sure many of you have at least seen scenes of the movie “Small Soldiers.” Released in 1998 and directed by Joe Dante, the movie centers on a group of toys who are given microchips that result in giving them artificial intelligence and, subsequently, life. These toys are split into two factions, the pacifist Gorgonites and the bloodthirsty Commando Elite. The Commando Elite are on a self-imposed mission to destroy the Gorgonites while the Gorgonites are simply looking for their home, Gorgon.
The leaders of both these groups are voiced by Frank Langella (the Gorgonites’ Archer) and Tommy Lee Jones (the Commando Elite’s Chip Hazard). However, that’s not the interesting thing about the voice cast. It instead has to deal with the other characters.
See, the rest of the Commando Elite are voiced by stars of the film “The Dirty Dozen;” George Kennedy plays Brick Bazooka, Clint Walker plays Nick Nitro, Jim Brown plays Butch Meathook, Ernest Bo
Any Thoughts? First, let me say that I am not very technologically advanced. I may have a computer, but I do now know that much about it. Sure, I am #1 at using it, but some things confuse me.
If you are using a laptop and reading this, I would like you to look and let me know if you see your HDD light (hard drive indicator) on. For my laptop, it is right next to the spot where I plug in the power cord, and adjacent to the power indicator light. It will have a disk drawing above it. Mine does, at least. Is yours on? Maybe mine has always done this, but I recently noticed it has been flickering, like a lightbulb ready to go out. As I said, I have never looked at it before, so I wouldn't know if this is a new occurrence or old.
Is it expected for a hard drive light to flicker rapidly like this every now and then?
It is usually on solid when the PC is idle enough for the fan to go on.
