Warehouse 13 (aka X-Files, Eureka, Fringe in a Blender)

Myka: “I thought the medic might know something so I asked him to meet me after work.”
Pete: “Good idea. I got a thing to do. [serious] But, Myka, I want you to be careful. I want you to use a condom.”
Myka: “That's hilarious.”

Hee. There’s just something about this show. It’s not exactly an original storyline: two Secret Service agents (Pete and Myka) are whisked away to a warehouse in the middle of nowhere that guards supernatural objects from the ages, and they are tasked with going about the country to bring back artifacts still loose in the world and wrecking havoc. Okaaay.

So here I was, all set to be bored or irked by the show. A July start date, a copycat premise, and while I absolutely love the sci-fi, I still recoil at the newly renamed SyFy channel. Oh sure, that name change will totally draw in all the non-geeks! Uh huh.

The show doesn’t start off with a bang. It’s not particularly sophisticated or original. And at first, the chemistry between the leads was a bit iffy (I said, at first. See below for the status update). But what does shine through clearly from the start is the charm. The show knows it’s not X-Files or Fringe, and doesn’t attempt to be as clever as Eureka; it doesn’t care, and lives quite contentedly in being adorably charming and fun. The show promises and delivers both a good time and some pretty amusing banter.

Pete: “No more zoos, okay? From now on, if an artifact is at a zoo, we leave it there.”
Myka: “Monkeys spit. Artie, do you know that? They… they spit! And it is not pleasant.”

So let’s talk about the ‘ship because really, 75% of why I continue to watch a television show is for this reason alone.

The cast starts to gel nicely over a few episodes and yes, inevitably the leads will end up in a will-they, won’t-they relationship. Unlike Castle, where the leads were (unsuccessfully) meant to ooze chemistry and "meant-to-be" from the first moment, Warehouse 13 takes more of the Bones approach.

Pete: “Use your feminine wiles. Smile. You're pretty when you smile.”
Myka: “I am?”
Pete: “Yeah.”
Myka: “So, what does that mean when I'm not smiling?”
Pete: [pause] “Kind of frightening.”

Myka and Pete are partners, however unwillingly that may have started, and they equal your polar opposite couple of oil and water. And yet; there are all the little things that make this ‘ship worth watching.

One: she knows what he means when he says “red shirt”. Hello, that’s a true sci-fi kink right there.

Myka: “Artie acts like keeping us alive isn't a priority. To him we're just...”
Pete: “Redshirts?”
Myka: “Yeah.”
Pete: “Okay. First, he doesn't think we're redshirts. And second, that's so cool you knew what I meant!”

Two: he knows she’s hot, but also thinks she’s out of his league. It makes Pete not care how he acts, and makes her find him endearing on occasion. So worth it.

Myka: “She’s out of your league.”
Pete: “How do you know what my league is?”
Myka: “Not that I asked for them, but I’ve had season tickets.”

Three: she names her ferret after him. Ha.

Leena: “Myka did name her ferret; she’s just not telling Pete the name.”
Claudia: “Well why not?”
Artie: “‘Cause she named it Pete.”
Myka: “It’s cute, but it’s so annoying.”

There are serious things, too, but the show doesn’t get bogged down in them. They’re just built into the foundation and bits revealed nicely in a way that brings the emotional resonance and backstory without forgetting the humor at the show’s core.

If it’s the best new show on television you’re after, or something with a lot of depth, conspiracy or mystery that will keep you digging and analyzing, this isn’t the right end of the spectrum. But there is appeal here, and definitely a nice attraction between the leads (and a general chemistry with the rest of the cast), and some deeper story growing that might just be the sugar for your sweet tooth.

Oh yeah, and did I mention the chemistry got hot?

Fake!Myka: “So what tipped you?”
Pete: “The real Myka... would never kiss me. Never! Not if her life depended on it! [pause] Which is...”
Fake!Myka: “...a shame. You’re a good kisser.”

Season One is currently airing in the U.S. on Tuesday nights. The show has been renewed for season two.

China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
I came across this [url=http://universalages.com/hot-news/what-happened-in-haiti-is-it-related-to-haarp/]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.

With the increasing popularity of tagged poker chips as a virtual currency in zynga texas holdem poker game a lot of phishers have engaged themselves, who try their best to trick unsuspecting players out of their hard earned bebo poker chips. All over the internet forums are littered with posts by innocent people who have had their poker chips stolen. Nothing is as sorry state as logging to Facebook or MySpace to play a few hands of poker only to find that your account is hacked and your poker chips are gone.[/color]


[color=#65b8f9]Follow these tips to keep your facebook poker chips safe:

Never give your password to a stranger: Trust is a delicate thing that takes a long time to build but only second to destroy. You may meet a stranger in poker room and you are friends with him/her. He/she will keep interacting with you days before playing her trick. So be carefull enough to protect your login credentials to yourself, else this may lead to disaster.

Be careful about what you download: Serious online gamers are looking for cheats or hacks for the games they play in order to give them an advantage over their opponents. Poker is no different and there are plenty of websites on the internet having facebook poker cheats and hacks for those brave enough to download and install them. But many of these so called facebook poker cheats have viruses or trojan programs. The moment you install any of these your computer is at the risk of attacks by the creator of the program. He can then have access to vital information that you access from your computer. Leaving your facebook poker account at risk of been hacked. If you never downloaded any of these programs then you’re probably safe, and if you have then you should run a spyware detection program. The best move will be for get your computer formatted to avoid any loop holes.

Phishing Links: This way of hacking has been thee for quite sometime now. Phishers send legitimate and official looking emails to your inbox. When you open them you are asked to click on the link and login in order to save your account or win free facebook poker chips, but in reality you are logging into a fake site that sends your information off to the phisher who made it. Before you find it out, its too late to react and they would have already broken into your account and emptied it of any facebook poker chips that you may have.

YouTube scams: If you do a search on youtube for facebook poker cheats, zynga poker hacks, or free facebook poker chips you’ll find hundreds of videos on the topic. More than 90% of them are made by idiots hoping to convince you to send them your account information. They range from slightly clever to completely moronic.

Image Photo Having Exe Embedded In it: This one is hard to catch. This is the latest fashion that is used by scammer, you will be asked to share family photo's. When you open their photo, that will innitiate an exe in the background which will steal all your information and send to the mastermind behin it. So be careful with whom you share photos.

Hope these tips help you saving your chips.

Now here's a shoe-in for the list of the year's best gaming-related clothing : Adidas has brought back its ZX 5 hundred running shoe, and, since it originally hails from the '80s, the gaming galvanized design and coloring is a simple choice ... Right? The kicks won't be the coolest part of the deal, either ; they come packaged with a combo bracelet/USB flashdrive containing ZX Runner, a software game based primarily on ... The shoe itself.

GameCulture writes the game stars a character named'DJ Zed' who, according to Adidas, has five minutes to'run, moon-walk, climb walls, avoid some dodgy-looking bullies, collect power-ups, and pull off mad rooftop-to-rooftop stunts' in order to get on-stage before his set starts. It's fittingly retro -- see for yourself in the video we've included after the breakdance.
