Video: The Chinese are so awesome

The Chinese communist party’s 60th year celebration (military parade) in high definition. The video is just amazing. Surreal. Whatever random adjectives.

These guys got 24 SSDs from Samsung and look at what they did with them! Awesome. A 6 TB rig with RAID. And it hits 2 GB/sec. Another awesome for you?

We took 24 256GB Samsung MLC SSD’s and put them in RAID to make this awesome computer! See how we did it, and what the results were!

And BTW this is great viral marketing too. Good choice of handing out the SSDs to these guys, Samsung!

I can actually feel the pain. This is what people do in the name artistic geekdom.

What he did was to use electrodes (or something) to stimulate his face muscles. The music turns the wires on and off causing his strange facial expressions.
