Hey Houston, we’ve got a flat tire !

What the hell mars’ stones are made of ? As Opportunity robot only totalizes 4,6 Km drive since it’s landing 17 months ago on the red planet, some wheels of the rover are about to break apart. The Nasa didn’t discovered any garage around yet for a quick repair.

So I guess Opportunity will have to learn driving with style on 5, then 4, 3, 2, then 1 wheel ? Great Mars Circus opening soon ;)

Well seriously, the choice we made on RS for tracks was the good one. Our robots never encountered any mechanical issue since 10 years in so many multiplayer games played here. Maybe there a risk for rust those last days to our lonely bots, but no serious trouble in sight.

That’s the e-magic of virtual robots games...

The obvious <a href="https://www.google.com">answer</a> is no, you shouldn't, but at the same  time it does raise questions about what we are doing as a society and what we are missing out on. Instead of going and achieving dreams and accomplishing goals we are sitting in front of a YouTube screen watching others enjoy themselves. A good example of this is a YouTube star that goes by the name of PewDiePie. PewDiePie is famous for his videos where he will play video games and make comments about them.

Sounds like a fun little hobby, but for him it is a full-time job where he raked in over $7 million dollars in 2014 himself and at one point was purchased by Disney. Now what does that say about a society when instead of playing video games we now watch other people have fun playing them. It is odd that we have the need to watch someone accomplish their goals or dreams and never actually accomplish any of ours. Another good example is how important celebrity gossip has become in our society (An easy pun on this article). Of course you must have heard of the Kardashians, or maybe a hundred other celebrities who you have heard of, but know nothing about. What is our strategy, why do we sit and eat up all of this information when it has nothing to do with us in our daily lives?

We want to accomplish something, but by talking about all of this nonsense nothing is actually being accomplished. Maybe we should stop talking, complaining, or making a mockery of things that do not pertain to us and start dealing with stuff that does. By doing this we may actually be accomplishing what we want to do instead of eyeing up what other people are accomplishing. At the same time, sure some people do like making jokes of other people that they do not know, or complain about them and they do receive benefits. Looking back at the Shia LeBeouf video, there are pun videos that have received tens of millions of views. "Shia LeBeouf - Just Do It" is a complete joke on itself. It is entertaining and funny with a bunch of stupid motions thrown in. That is what we need. We need something that is entertaining to watch, yet at the same time the video to be motivating. While it is a joke to itself he is doing what he wants and he is trying to get other people to do it too through the  [url="http://www.google.co.uk"]power[/url] of motivation.
