Master Chief returns to finish the fight, bringing the epic conflict between the Covenant, the Flood, and the entire human race to a dramatic, pulse-pounding climax. The Covenant occupation of Earth has uncovered a massive and ancient object beneath the African sands - an object whose secrets have yet to be revealed. Earth's forces are battered and beaten. The Master Chief's AI companion Cortana is still trapped in the clutches of the Gravemind - a horrifying Flood intelligence, and a civil war is raging in the heart of the Covenant. It's all been building to this -- a desperate, final war that leads to a soul-shattering climax of epic proportions. Take control of Master Chief to defeat the Covenant and destroy the Flood to prevent the annihilation of the human race.

Two Star Wars pepper mills made of ABS plastic and measuring 11cm (4.33") tall are on their way to the Japanese market on February 29, 2008. Both hold about 1 oz worth of peppercorns. To crush them, twist R2's dome and flakes of pepper obediently drop from its bottom. Two variants are on offer - a blue and white R2-D2 and a black and gold R2-Q5. Preorders are welcome at JPY1980 or US$19 each.
With that in mind, the Pokemon Picnic Set's target market is probably in Central Park and everywhere else outside of NYC. The set consists of two square boxes made of blue polyvinyl chloride which measure 22cm (8.66") square. You could probably make a "picnic set" of your own by buying Tupperware but then you'd miss out on the Pokemon magic. Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late March 2008.
Today was a national holiday in Japan known as Autumn Equinox Day (Shubun no hi) where families visit the graves of relatives and pay their respects. Families burn incense and leave offerings of flowers and ohagi which are rice balls since the traditional view is that the spirits of our ancestors prefer round foods. In other words, hamburgers are anathema.
