Around the Web on November 26th

It is the busiest travel time of the year, and Penn Gillette and Adam Savage have a couple of heartwarming TSA stories. For those unfamiliar with the guys, Penn Gillette is one half of Penn in Penn & Teller, a couple of myth busting magicians with a flair for Grand Guignol presentation. Adam Savage is part of the MythBusters team, the application of science to checking out Internet memes, old wives' tales, urban legends and popular "they say ..." stories.

Daniel Radcliffe takes a moment to explain he really is Harry Potter. Radcliffe is the role he plays.


It's a day late but you can eat human all year long, not just for Thanksgiving. IO9 has a handy guide to butchering humans for a hearty meal.

Saunavihta Vortex

Saunavihta Vortex is a fun Flash game where you attempt to roast a ragdoll for 3 seconds. The doll is cold, the fire is warm and inviting and the game is one of those physics time wasters with ever more complex levels.

Gran Turismo 5

Gran Turismo 5 is out and the reviews are mixed. Most of the complaints concerns GT5's skimping on the fun gaming aspect for the OCD tuning and simulator modes, which, after all, is what GT has always been about. It is a simulator and complaints about lack of proper damage physics seems like a misunderstanding of the product rather than a fault in and of itself.

DC Universe MMORPG

DC Universe MMORPG has some screenshots available, of the Joker, Harley Quinn and someone I don't recognize squaring off. The game could be great, I hope it can capture the personality of all of its heroes and settings. Grim Gotham and more cheerful Metropolis could make great changes of pace, depending on a hero's mood for the day.

World of Warcraft: Cataclysm

World of Warcraft is launching a new world-changing event soon: the Cataclysm. Continents and maps have changed. Quests will be changing and there are already new cutscenes. A new event may have a dragon flying about randomly killing characters. I'm not sure that particular aspect sounds like fun.

A Fistful of Dollars

This man, Ruben, is not a superhero. He is a mercenary vigilante that gets paid by the knocked out tooth and broken bone, $1,000 per. This sums up the reason Ruben is necessary: Non-Indians commit two-thirds of violent crimes against Indians, including 86 percent of rapes and sexual assaults. Yet thanks to a 1978 Supreme Court ruling, tribes cannot prosecute outsiders who commit crimes on their land. Ruben is justice for the people wronged, who have no legal system to turn to.

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

I have never played Uncharted: Drake's Fortune. But the reviews of it were great and it has a very loyal following. Its sweeping cinematic feel left no doubt someone would try to make it into a movie, and now a casting decision and director are in the spotlight. Mark Wahlberg and David O. Russell are set to go. David O. Russell is an impressive director, Three Kings was great and the upcoming http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_zijS_UAtw '>The Fighter is getting great prerelease buzz. Oh, according to the article De Niro and Pesci might be in the film too.
