Who says that Post-Crisis Superman is a weakling? Common questions about this video are answered below: Questions & Answers Q - What is Crisis? A - Crisis on Infinite Earths. The first Superman Comic after the Silver Age, published in 1986, which gave Superman a more stable power set. (Before that comic, people wrote Superman with whatever powers they wanted) Q - What are these clips from? A - The first clip is from "Superman vs the Elite". The second clip is from "Superman/Batman Apocalypse". The third clip is from "Justice League: Doom" Q - Is this "canon"? A - It's a direct adaptation of Action Comics #775, so yes. Here's a couple of scans from that comic as proof: http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd247/kjs1982/Manchester%20Black/ManchesterBlackSupermanStroke.jpg~original http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/12/124288/2374462-2122334-manchester_black_superman_lobotomy_action_comics_775.jpg Q - Why are they talking/breathing on the moon? How did Superman make a tornado on the moon? A - An extra-dimensional creature called "Bunnie" put air on the moon for them. Q - Isn't that explosion too small for 15 supernovas? A - He said "15 suns exploding in his face". It obviously isn't the full power of 15 suns focused onto one spot. (That would destroy pretty much everything) It's a much weaker attack focused onto one spot to have the same effect as 15 supernovas hitting Superman: a small amount of energy focused onto one spot, via compression can equal the same effect as a greater amount of energy against a single target. For better clarity, see the diagram at the link below: http://www.worldwar2aces.com/shaped_charge.jpg Q - Superman doesn't have psychic powers! A - As explained in the Man of Steel miniseries (1986) Superman, and all other Kryptonians have an invisible, millimeter thick, incredibly strong telekinetic barrier surrounding their whole body, that can be projected to surround distant objects. It prevents/reduces damage from most sources, and is the reason for Superman's 'invulnerability'. (which is more like durability: Superman has been injured before, and is injured in this video) It's also the reason he can lift large objects without them falling apart under their own weight, and the reason he can fly: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-Hqkk9_WxVDg/TlnlDLiRQiI/AAAAAAAAF7Y/yUXU8hgCAes/s1600/sup2.jpg - Superman himself confirms that his flight and extreme strength are *both* functions of his willpower, and are therefore telekinetic in nature. Without using his telekinesis he is still very strong, but not nearly as strong as he is with it. http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-SBxruNZEVHQ/UMsUnnrVRsI/AAAAAAAAU8k/QenRIMzrasw/s1600/sb+15-06.jpg - In this scan (from the New52 Superman comics) we see that Superman's Kryptonian armor is pre-programmed to weaponize Superboy's telekinetic power. It would only do that if it expected the user to be telekinetic. Superboy's *only* power is Telekinesis, and it is stated to be a result of him being half-Kryptonian. (not a byproduct of being half-human) http://www.writeups.org/wp-content/uploads/Superman-1M-One-Million-DC-Comics-h05.jpg - Superman's descendants also possess this ability. The effect radiates from his hands and is used to move objects. http://static5.comicvine.com/uploads/scale_super/5/51585/2196149-superboy_telekinesis.jpg - Here we see Silver Age Superboy (young Superman) using his telekinesis. Notice the effect is radiating from his hands, much like the previous example. https://cinefagos.files.wordpress.com/2014/11/superman-ii-odd-powers.jpg - It's also used in the Superman films in the same way: the effect was a white beam from the hand. http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/8/82452/1530416-wackypowers.jpg - Another Silver Age Telekinetic feat has Superman throw a pair of smooth stones in an utterly impossible curve. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3EI6nH1O7-U - In the television series Smallville, young Superman demonstrates telekinesis very clearly. As for telepathy and telepathic projection, Superman has created illusions with his mind, can use mind control, and has psychic blocks that protect his mind from telepathic attack, and reads minds: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDGCQSmyMeU http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/0/2532/1303525-adventuresof581a.jpg http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/15/150339/3102233-3596159895-vo8tc.jpg http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/15/150339/3102231-9664562471-tvera.jpg https://www.chaostrophic.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/superman-superpowers-telepathy.jpg https://www.chaostrophic.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/superman-superpowers-hypnosis.jpg http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/scale_super/8/82452/1530412-6a00d8345158e369e2010536c8ec8e970b_800wi.jpg http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b107/Nik_TehPimpXor/SuperMind.jpg~original
get your BOOM TETRIS FOR JEFF SHIRT HERE: http://ctwc.storenvy.com/products/19444672-boom-tetris-for-jeff-adult-gildan-tee -- learn more at http://thectwc.com From the 2016 Classic Tetris World Championship, Final match: Jonas Neubauer vs Jeff Moore With full commentary by Video Game Hall-of-Famer Chris Tang, this match is a real gem for all you Tetris fans out there. From the CTWC website: In the 1990 Nintendo World Championship competition, Tetris was the game to beat. The winner, Thor Aackerlund, is still seen by many as the best to have ever played. Today’s Classic Tetris tournaments are played on that same version of Nintendo Tetris, using original NES game systems, controllers, and Tetris cartridges. In 2009, a player named Harry Hong became the first to achieve the highest possible score of 999,999 points. Inspired by this achievement, filmmaker Adam Cornelius produced a short film about Harry called “Max-Out”, and launched a Kickstarter campaign to document the world of competitive Tetris. As word of Adam’s Kickstarter campaign spread, rumors of max-out scores from other Tetris Masters began to surface, threatening the supremacy of Harry’s achievement. With the help of Nintendo World Championship veteran Robin Mihara, Adam searched for all of the Tetris Masters he could find. Jonas Neubauer emerged as an early max-out artist, along with the elusive original champ Thor Aackerlund. The idea of bringing these and other NES Tetris Masters together to compete in a live tournament became an obvious and irresistible proposition which was artfully captured in the 2010 feature length documentary Ecstasy of Order: The Tetris Masters. Under the leadership of producer Vince Clemente, The Classic Tetris World Championship is currently held at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo, an annual event which has hosted the tournament since 2012. Chuck Van Pelt and his organizing committee have built the PRGE into the largest classic gaming expo in the country, drawing around 6,000 attendees. Every year the scores get higher. Rivalries are revisited once again, and new players emerge to challenge the old guard. Over 20 players have maxed out the score now. Will you be the next? http://ecstasyoforder.com http://thectwc.com
*Watch with headphones on! Is 45 minutes really the longest anyone can stay in a perfectly silent, pitch-black room? Support Veritasium on Patreon http://bit.ly/VePatreon Check out Audible: http://bit.ly/AudibleVe Want to watch the whole hour of silence? http://youtu.be/jr1UMFC9DV0 Many stories have circulated claiming the longest anyone has stayed in an ultra-quiet anechoic chamber is 45 minutes, the reason being any longer would drive you insane. To me this sounded like unsubstantiated rubbish, like the claim the Great Wall is the only manmade structure visible from space. So I put my own psyche on the line, subjecting myself to over an hour of the most intense quiet on Earth. No, this was not THE quietest room on Earth (-9dB) but it is one of the quietest, and the truth is once you put a person inside, they are by far the loudest thing in there so the sound rating of the room is irrelevant. I was not surprised to find that I could stay in there for as long as I liked and feel perfectly fine. What was surprising is that my heartbeat was audible. You can hear it on the sound recording. Now I wasn't consciously aware of the sound of my heart while in the room, but I was more aware of the feeling of it beating. Huge thank you to everyone at BYU: Duane Merrell, Spencer Perry, Cameron Vongsawad, Jazz Myers, Ann Clawson, and Robert Willes.

I've been on a quest to see if I can find the ultimate scary game. You can find a link to the full list at http://www.rudyxx.com/videogames/horror/index.shtml or follow along on my twitch tv stream for updates. This list more or less originated from a combination of a ton of "top horror games you need to play" lists. If you have any suggestions feel free to let me know. I am looking specifically for games that are supposed to be scary as opposed to just general games with a horror theme to them but aren't meant to be scary such as Devil May Cry.
The ability to just throw things around the room at random made Dead Space 2 a lot of fun. Instead of feeling scared I just felt like throwing more stuff around the room. Telekinesis was probably a bad idea if they wanted the player to feel helpless and scared.
