Question + Video: Is Buying Call of Duty, or any game that features realistic guns, a Moral Choice?

Question + Video: Is Buying Call of Duty, or any game that features realistic guns, a Moral Choice?:

Did you know that when your purchase a game that features real weapons, you often, without even knowing about it, end up funding the weapon industry? I wasn’t even aware of this, but it seems that weapon manufacturers are getting some royalties on each game featuring their weapons that gets sold to consumers. So what do you guys think? Can purchasing a video game with realistic weapons present a moral conumdrum?

This, ladies and gentlegeeks, is Captain Bayley’s Infernal Mechano-Perambulator, the offspring of a regular AT-AT Walker mixed with Flickr user Broken Journalist‘s mind. Looks fantastic, doesn’t it?
“Each one of those rivets was cut out with a punch and applied with tweezers, and we both lost track of the number of coats of spray paint he used to get that gorgeous patina before washing it down and creating the stains and drips. He made the narwhal horn on the front as well. It’s hard to see but the legs and feet are covered in seaweed and barnacles – I can just imagine it tramping up and down the coastline, or standing in a harbour next to a crumbling pier.”

Man Creates Real-Life Batcave [Video]

Man Creates Real-Life Batcave [Video]:

Chris Weir spent 2 years and over $150,000 to create his very own Batcave in his basement. His wife only had one condition before he could start the project: The mortgage had to be paid.
Amazingly, the man-made styrofoam bat cave can only be accessed in the same way Bruce Wayne opens the Batcave in the classic 60s Batman series starring Adam West. Chris went to painstaking lengths to install a replica of the William Shakespeare bust seen in Wayne Manor.
