Space Boomerang

What would happen if you threw a boomerang in a microgravity environment (like, say, if you were in the International Space Station)? Well, now thanks to astronaut Takao Doi, we have the answer, and it is completely awexome:

"Of the Month" May ’08

Link of the Month:
TV in Japan
The website that tells you: "This is what TV is like. In Japan." Often weird, often hilarious, and often starring American film actors hocking strange Japanese products.

Game of the Month:
Mario Kart Wii
Aaah. It’s about durned time. The best video game franchise in the history of history has finally come to the Wii, and thanks to the included Wii Wheel, you have the option of playing it a whole new way. Other than that it’s very similar to the DS version, with 16 new tracks and 16 classic tracks from previous Mario Kart games. Glorious goodness. And they’ve greatly improved the online play—it’s a whole lot of fun, you can play up to 12 opponents from around the world, and you can play until you decide to quit without penalizing yourself or screwing up the people you’re playing with.

DVD of the Month:
Very close to being the best movie of the year 2007 (only beat out by Grindhouse and Hot Fuzz). A wonderful celebration of wit, intelligence, and honesty. Go read my full review to see why you should own this movie. Plus (in case you don’t trust my tastes) it was Ebert’s favorite movie of 2007.
