HAIT?: Tron Legacy Soundtrack remixed!

In today's post of 'How Awesome Is This?', I present to you the next album I will actually buy (not just download from a totally legit source that is not illegal in anyway whatsoever). In about a week, Daft Punk's already awesome Tron: Legacy soundtrack will be getting jealous of its newer, younger, sexier sibling, Tron: Legacy "Reconfigured".  This new album features remixes from many of today's hottest DJs in very original takes on Daft Punk's stellar album.

Finally, a legitimate method of describing your 'friends'

How many of you out there (all 2 of you) have ever had this conversation with friends:
You: "You're such a nerd."
Friend: "At least I'm not a dork like you."
You: "I'd rather be a dork than a nerd."
Friend: "Whatever you geek."
You: "Says a nerd.  Dorks are way cooler." infinitum until you realize that you both have no idea what any of those words really means.

So I have solved your verbal conundrum for you.

How Awesome Is This?

Egyptian orders a pizza for Wisconsin Demonstrators

It really amazes how the world is being shaped by technology.  It really is as if we're no longer divided by boundaries, but by ideals.  People can share ideologies half way across the globe.  One day, even North Korea and China will have to face the full onslaught of open information :)

Unreal Engine 3 update suprisingly Real

So Epic Games just released a video showing off the update to their already powerful and widely used Unreal Graphics Engine.  What do new features such as subsurface scattering, bokeh depth of field tricks and improved tessellation mean?  It means all those Zombie Nazis will look even more realistic than ever before.  Here's a REAL-TIME demo (meaning that's what the graphics could look like in an actual game).  You'll want to watch in 1080p:

5 Things: Less egregious but fairly annoying driving habits

So everyone gets annoyed while driving.  Road rage exists within us all every now and then.  However I will argue that us folk in Southern California have more right to rage than most of the states.  The mass congestion and overcrowded highways are legendary.  There are a lot of people in the world who just don't understand what traffic congestion is.

So on top of living in Southern California, I also live in Little Saigon.  This basically makes driving at least 5x worst.  I lived in Los Angeles for over 5 years and braved some of the worst traffic ever witnessed by the eyes of men, but I would much prefer bad congestion to bad driving.  It's not the time loss that gets to me, it's the COMPLETELY AND EASILY AVOIDABLE loss of time that pisses me off.  So here are 5 less egregious but fairly annoying driving habits:
