UFO Chicken Coop Puts The Question Of Chicken Or Egg To Rest Forever

I knew it! I always knew chickens are not merely food for humans! There maybe some clever ones like, you know, those in Chicken Run (2000, DreamWorks), that are perhaps intelligent like aliens.

While these chickens may not have built them, it does paint a perfect picture of aliens, I mean chickens, landing here on Earth. That being said, we can shut our argument on chickens or eggs first. Because, its UFO first. Maybe. Like, who knows, right? Continue reading UFO Chicken Coop Puts The Question Of Chicken Or Egg To Rest Forever

A DIY Kylo Ren TIE Silencer Takes Flight Here On Earth And It Is Beautiful!

Now, we all know TIE, which basically acronym for Twin Ion Engines, from everyone’s favorite sci-fi movie franchise won’t happen any time in our lifetime, but with a little help from some real-world hobby-grade electric motors and props, YouTuber Peter Sripol, has gotten a replica of Kylo Ren’s TIE Silencer to fly, beautifully, right here on Earth. I am an old school person which makes me less acceptable to newer TIE iterations, but still, to see Kylo’s evil TIE take flight in our own world was quite a sight to behold. Unlike the official Star Wars R/C toys, Sripol ditches the notion of a quad rotor drone setup; instead, he went on the good’ol propellers-driven setup.

I mean, seriously, the time it takes for steam to muster enough power to execute a task or two, it will take need a lot of heat and time. Having said that, steampunk is probably a fantasy best left to anime and movie adaption of Around the World in 80 Days.
