Out of the Blue

Spoiler alert! Today is the 25th anniversary of Half-Life, Valve's original first-person shooter. We'll call this the game's lead-210 anniversary, since its half-life is 22.3 years according to Wikipedia and that's as close as we can find to an isotope with a 25-year half-life. The celebration of the occasion is fully underway, including Friday's announcement that the game has received a big update, and is currently free-to-keep on Steam. So get moving! They're waiting for you Gordon. In the test... chamber.

Yeah, I remember a story (I think on NPR) about holiday mishaps. And one of them was a guy who was super excited to use his newly installed garbage disposal while fixing Thanksgiving dinner. He just peeled the potatoes into the sink and used the disposal. The pipe filled with the material, clogging and effectively turning into potato concrete. He ended up having to replace a couple feet of drain piping....

D'oh!
