Tuesday Images from the Net

Today's Images from the Net will host a series of Motivational posters. You know, those cute black-frame images with a kitten holding onto a tree limb that say "Hang in there!"? Ok, so these are a bit different, but their mass appeal beyond the cube-dwellers of some bureaucratic organization is substantially higher.

Whether is be Han Solo from the distant future and a galaxy far far away to the Fonz, Chaotic Good has always sported some of the most loved characters.

Warhammer 40k is built around stat management, point allotments, strategy, and of course making your figures look as absolutely awesome as humanly (or xenosly) possible.

That being said sometimes someone will make an odd choice in modeling for flair. I've seen countless tanks with an unarmored sergeant hanging out the turret. When I see this image I see why that's a bad idea.... Fire is raining from the skies, hide in your tank sir.

This one is an oldie but goodie. Nothing says fantastic images from the net like Spock from the legendary geek sanctuary of Star Trek spinning some tables and churning out 1337 electronic mixes.
Moving on!

Finally we have the most relevant image of the day. Today marks the final day of peace and tranquility prior to CERN booting up and beginning their initial full runs of the LHC (Large Hadron Collider). The web is buzzing with articles concerning this so I won't bother going into much detail here, but lets say that they created the same device that Black Mesa had which caused a "Resonance Cascade" that sparked all of the events in Half-Life 1.

Check out my article over on Idioms and Axioms if you want more information about the LHC.
