This Is Zedtown: Training For The Zombie Apocalypse, With Nerf Guns

Our ragged group of survivors shifts nervously, ready to cut and run at the first sign of danger. A horde of zombies ambles slowly towards us, a distraction from the lone runners slipping around the sides to try and catch us off guard. “Hold the line!” someone shouts, but we all know that if it came to it, we’d turn on our fellow survivors if it helped us get out alive. This is Zedtown.


NBN Will Roll 'Fibre To The Curb' To 700,000 Homes Around Australia, Abandoning Optus Cable

The rollout of Australia’s NBN will abandon almost all of Optus’s HFC cable network that it paid $800 million for back in 2011, with up to 700,000 homes around the country instead being connected to the NBN through fibre to the distribution point — a new technology that brings many of the advantages of fibre to the premises to a fibre to the node-style construction method.

Is there anything worse than having a flimsy, lightweight keyboard sliding all over your desk while you type? Probably a lot of things, but not for Redditor ipee9932cd, who couldn’t find a keyboard case they liked so they went the extra obsessed mile to make their own using rock-solid concrete.

VR Experience Makes You Feel Like A Rampaging Giant Stomping Around Cities

The real appeal of monster movies like Godzilla is that they let you experience what it would be like to be a giant rage-filled monster stomping around a big city.

Which Supporting Character On The Simpsons Has Spoken The Most Words?

If you include the main cast, it’s fairly obvious who has the most lines: It’s Homer, by hundreds of thousand of words, followed by Marge, Bart and Lisa all bunched up pretty close together.
