FBI recently paid a visit to a Texas gamer who was attempting to build a small nuclear reactor in his basement. They were accompanied by local cops as well as officials from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
lol now that reminds me of Pinky & The Brain ........he was TRYING TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD from his basement .............................. ..........oh and why did they have to mention that he was " playing Call of Duty 4 on his PC"????
Lol, I loved Pinky and the Brain. Whatever happened to that show? On topic: That is some cool guy. Nuclear work in the basement sweet!! :D
How long before Jack Thompson blames the whole nuclear mess on gamers?
About 5 hours...
What a crock... why on Earth do they need to mention that he is a gamer? It has NOTHING to do with the fact that he was trying to build an illegal nuclear reactor. They should also mention that he was an avid drinker-of-water, and I also heard that he liked to drive a car sometimes. Ooooh ooooh, plus he also used teh google. Non. Issues.
What are we gonna do today? What we do everyday, try to take over the world
He should first built a force field to conduct his nuclear experiments.
Too much World in Conflict? Seriously, this could have become really dangerous. Hopefully we don't have nuclear reactor simulator games to blame... or do we?
lol, good one. He probably wanted to create his version of Fallout 3 ;)
Aww MK you let me down man. I thought you wouldnt need to be told Fallout hahaha
I know ;) Thankfully he was arrested before creating a real fallout :D
I thought this could have been a guy I worked with. This guy used PVC piping to try and inflate ballons with hydrogen. He was one of the biggest weirdos i'd ever met in my life. He would just sit around all day drinking 6-packs of Tab (seriously, Tab) and clapping his hands together as he bobbed his head up and down. I'm not kidding. He really did all of that while he would read books about making bombs. Did I mention he was a hardcore Christian? Also, I forgot to mention that this guy was an E-6 Nuclear Electronics Technician who serves on submarines in the military.
WHere does he find the time....
causing trouble again..
where's the mart?? don't see him trolling as before!
All the HDDVD bad news and all the PS3 good news have been devastating for him.... He was hiding in his basement/house building this nuclear bomb to blow the sh*t out of SONY Corporation. :)
I think he grew up and unfortunately there is about a thousand kids yet to do so and judging by your amount of ignores and comments whoop has yet to grow up yet either http://n4g.com/up/5369/comm... and looking at your comments ubber, learn to spell or take a german class über duh
Strangely enough theMART started talking sense.
Had he developed the cloaking device first, then the nuclear reactor. Duh!
LOL, good and bubble worthy one. You must always first cloaking device for your nuclear reactor even if it's your home :)
why not use a stealth boy so you don't get captured by the cops?
Wait just a friggin minute. So This random dude was building his reactor but theres no way Iran is able to? JK lol
a nuclear Iran is an afterthought. Iran and Pakistan will soon reach critical mass and the world will go into a new Dark Age bet on it. I guess it's true about the old saying re: Texas. "What happens here, changes the world" um wait a minute.........
I thought they meant the Playstation HOME. That would be awesome!
sensationalism at its best
Yeah, I'm not sure on the relevance of his gaming activities. He seemed like a fairly normal brainiac, aside from the nuclear reactor thing, you know. I mean, he wasn't some sort of extremist or total wacko, he just was dealing with cutting edge technology that he is fascinated with. Many scientists in the past run "questionable" experiments in their own private "lab" without anyone's knowledge until they make some sort of history making break through. I am curious about the removal of the device at the request of his parents. How old is this guy? He will soon be employed by the government. Just wait and see!
Looks like the next sequal to STALKER takes place in Texas.
bet he had a 360 the amount of power that thing uses it unbelevable lol no but back on topic he gets it workin makes it biger and BOOM just like a nuke but only i think it would be worse and wam the wold city he lived in if he did is wiped out but still a good idea
he works for Microsoft and he was building the next xbox... can you say SUPER RROD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yeah and it will still outsell, have better games, online and grahics.
just a matter of time before games get blamed sad really, but more importantly im shocked and at the same time impressed at what this guy did. its great that they caught him.
It was recently discovered that Bin Laden has solitaire on his computer!!! God help us all
“out-of-work computer whiz who redesigns (GP: mods, perhaps?) video games” I got $5 on it that says dude will get hired within the next 30 days.
So he was building a 360???? Nice!!!
http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... Thanks for the update Maddens Raiders, got info wrong.
holy crap! That's not really him, but that guy looks wicked.
Seriously what did it matter if he played video games? Did he talk on the phone too? Watch TV? This is not game newsworthy just normal news although pretty funny that someone can claim to have uranium over the net and not think anyone is listening or even that having highly radioactive substances is really not good for your health. It's a funny story nonetheless.
The same thing we do everynight Pinky.... Try to take over the world They're Pinky and The Brain Yes, Pinky and The Brain One is a genius The other's insane. They're laboratory mice Their genes have been spliced They're dinky They're Pinky and The Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain Brain. Before each night is done Their plan will be unfurled By the dawning of the sun They'll take over the world. They're Pinky and The Brain Yes, Pinky and The Brain Their twilight campaign Is easy to explain. To prove their mousey worth They'll overthrow the Earth They're dinky They're Pinky and The Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain Narf!
Did you look that up! or are you jest that smart.
first: daddy headshots his son second: teen want to kill his dad with controler cable third: nuclear reactor in home forth: a kid made a Portal weapon,but it doesnt work on some walls and she have some problems with power consumption .. U . S . A = Unreal Tournament
yea see games don't cause too much brain damage
should've used that knowledge to get a really high paying job.
this kid can get his hands on urainum?
holy, this guy has waay too much time on his hands. *may i suggest a hobby?*
He already has one ATOM SPLITTING Duh!!! lol
DARN YOU!!!! and your logical way of thinking!! DARN YOU!!
da hell, without ENRICHED uranium, u can't build piss of a nuke, jesus, go back to school and learn the science properly before you conduct another experiment, btw send your abstract and plans to my mail box before you begin next time...
but i never got past buying a new screwdriver set
