This one’s somewhat trickier than the last but if you know anything about Newton’s law of universal gravitation, you’re off to a good start.



  1. Zoiks! Wowzers!

  2. Nifty, eh, Blobs?

    I couldn’t quite get the CG sphere to match the colour of the real one but I’ve only just started to learn the techniques involved.

    I promise you, though, we’ll be making some very convincing UFO videos in the near future.

  6. Hmm … I think someone’s been drinking.

    Sheri, why can’t you be more like your brother? Mark would never beat up his landlord …

  7. When my brother Mark asked me to be the maid of honour at his wedding, I was like, of course man. You’ve always been there for me, like when I was in rehab, and like the time I couldn’t find my car. ‘Cause Mark’s always been the dependable one, and I’ve always been the screwed up one…right John?

    News flash “pop”, Mark ain’t so perfect. Remember that time in Puerto Rico when we picked up those two… well I guess they were prostitutes but I don’t remember paying.

  8. Ha ha! I knew you’d come through for me!

    By the way, when I was writing the setup, I couldn’t help but laugh at the thought of you beating up a landlord and then getting lectured about it by your dad.

  9. I could do that with ms-paint ctrl-c ctrl-v! Only my colours would actually match!

  10. Yeah, I should have spent a bit more time on the colour-matching. I did eventually get it right, you’ll be pleased to know.

    Say, when are we going to get the girls together for another marathon BF2 session? When Robin returns? We’ve got to try to break our previous record for total number of players kicked within a 48-hour period.

    … it’s you’re in lovvvve.

    ah, good times…

  12. I remember on a late-night journey home from Melbourne, I woke from a fifteen-minute nap, looked across at Dad and noticed he was in the same state as Robin in that photograph … only he was driving.

  13. OK. I need a diagram of how the original picture was taken….

    Where were you, where was the ball, where was the camera, and where was the screen?
