Portal vs Half-Life: The Cake is Real!

If there is one thing Valve don’t like its the number 3. With fans waiting for Half-life 3 till it became nothing more than a joke, the eagerly awaited Left 4 Dead 3 being nothing more than rumours and even Team-fortress 2 looking to be the last in the line of releases. The one thing Valve do like doing, messing with physics. Nothing more so than in their ever popular Portal game series (again, a series of only 2 games). Of course, Valve mess with physics no matter what game you play, but physics means nothing when it comes to the cake!

The cake may not be a lie, as you can now even purchase the elusive cake from the Portal game series. When it comes to cake, people will do anything for a slice, from stealing that final slice to using portals and explosive barrels to get the whole thing for themselves.

In the fan-made video see Gordan Freeman from the Half-Life series fights off against Chell from the Portal series in order to gain that ever elusive cake.

It’s always nice to see fans do these kinds of videos, mixing up series and jokes into something that’s not only fun to watch but also good for a quick laugh. Now if you don’t mind, I’m off to grab some cake.

Coffee and Dessert Makes It’s Way to the ISS on ESA Resupply Ship

Now being aboard the ISS (International Space Station) must be an amazing privilege indeed, living way about the earth seeing everything that’s happening below. For the lucky few that get to live/work up there for a living they need to be able to function like the rest of us here on the gloomy earth. Eating, breathing, sleeping, you know, normal stuff that we do becomes incredibly difficult up in space because there is no gravity, which as awesome as that is, can be annoying.

Now astronauts deserve a treat now and again, they are away from their families most of the time, so in this next refueling mission the astronauts are being sent Cappuccino and Tiramisu, as well as Oxygen, fuel and other essentials. The resupply ship is set to dock with the ISS on August 12 at about 9:30 am. This is the last resupply mission that the ESA will perform.

Seeing as this is the last resupply mission ESA will ever perform, someone needs to take over. Russian Progress spacecraft and the Japanese HTC cargo ships will be taking over from ESA. When the resupply is launching from the USA, missions will be handled by SpaceX and Orbital Sciences. So there are plenty of people to keep the astronauts topped up with air, fuel, spare parts and much more for the foreseeable future.
