Did you know a year was 400 days long just a couple of years ago. Like 400 million years ago, to be less inexact and more precise at the same time:

Though incredibly long by human standards, a million years is still relatively short by geological standards. Back in the Devonian period, some 400 million years ago, days would have been only about 21½ hours long. Given that the year (the time it takes the Earth to revolve around the sun) has not changed appreciably, there would have been slightly over 400 days to the year back in the Devonian.

I finally decided to get myself a new Nintendo 3DS XL (bougth the Mario & Luigi Dream Team Limited Edition from Amazon). I knew I wasn’t going to be in love with it, but I hoped I liked it a lot. My main problem right now is that the eshop card I bought from Play-Asia is not working, and their support is taking forever to reply. I hope it gets fixed, otherwise I wasted $50.

I’m stuck with the only game that came with the device (Mario & Luigi dream team). It’s not quite a bad game, but it’s not my favorite. I want to play New Super Mario Bros. 2 and Mario Kart 7. In fact, the only reason I got the 3ds was to play Mario Bros games. Isn’t Mario and Pokemon the only reasons why anybody still buys Nintendo consoles?

Back to the 3DS, wow, it feels like it came from the 90’s. The screen is awful. It’s not a bad screen, but it sucks when you’re used to the nice screens of current touch devices (I love my Galaxy Note 3. The iPad Air is gathering dust, but I still love its screen).

The controls are nice, and easy to use. The graphics, I’m not going there because everybody knows by now that Nintendo isn’t interested in the graphics. And the 3D effect, it’s nice for 2 minutes. Then you’ll turn it off and never use it again.

I’m sure that  I’ll get used to the 3DS once I get the games I want to play, but it probably won’t be used a lot. It sucks that you have to pay $30-40 dollars for a game. And yet, it’s what you have to do if you want to play any type of Mario game (unless you install an emulator on your PC or Android device to play old school nintendo games).

The price of Nintendo games isn’t even the biggest deal. It’s the selection of games. There are several games to choose from, but it’s an insignificant selection compared to the amount of games you can get for iOS and Android. Nintendo should open its doors to independent game developers and create a better store experience. I’m pretty sure Nintendo could be way more successful if anybody could create a game for the 3DS.

What do you think?

2000 Mile Bombing Radius
via newhousebooks

on a probably related subject, this photo gallery of Hiroshima and Nagasaki before and after the bomb might cause an impression on you. Of course, it only shows buildings, as a before-after of people would be  difficult to achieve, because a ton of those people were reduced to dust. No photos there.
The Hiroshima bomb instantly killed 80,000 people and 60000 more died from radiation or injuries by the end of the year. In a way, that makes Einstein partially responsible of the disappearance of 40% of Hiroshima’s population in 1945. He later said (to a japanese publication) that his participation in the production of the atom bomb consisted in a single act: signing a letter to President Roosevelt. Of course he’s not to blame, but it goes to show that even small acts can directly or indirectly lead to huge consequences.
I’m not making sense anymore, so I suggest you go read something with a more profound meaning.

It’d be cool to live in a world that looks like that.

Hope 

on a related but unrelated subject, the "here’s to the crazy ones" poster I ordered the other day just arrived. Now I need to frame it and put it in a place where I can see it every single morning. I know the message is a bit cliche, but it’s still a strong message, isn’t it?

We had a shoot yesterday! Can’t let a perfect fall day like that go to waste now, can we?

(12.10.2013)  

those pink shorts also appear in the cover of Amamak’s book. Go buy that book! I haven’t bought their latest ones (no money these days), but I do have an older one, Untitled. I wonder if the pink shorts make an appearance there…
