Duke Nukem’s current character is a pastiche of a number of Hollywood action heroes, and his most famous line is from the movie They Live with Roddy Piper saying, “I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick ass. And I’m all out of bubble gum.” Duke’s appearance resembles that of The Boz as well as characters played by Dolph Lundgren and Jean Claude Van Damme.[2] Voiced by Jon St. John since the third game, Duke’s voice is based on that of Clint Eastwood as Dirty Harry.[3].

Chemical and electrical energy can be sensed in some cases, and their effects detected with the senses, depending on the situation. The smallest chemical reactions or tiny electrical currents or low voltages cannot be sensed, but there is a threshold that is often crossed and we notice what is going on. But there is a type of energy that can’t be detected directly.

These disadvantages increasingly outweigh the advantages of standardized design. This is partly because we’re so spoiled (most of us already own more stuff than we need or want) that we have become bored by it, and partly because uniformity seems less attractive. Think of the way we use the Internet, charting random routes rather than following prescribed paths, and how millions of people create their own virtual worlds in games like Second Life, The Sims and Spore.

Yet another excellent spot to search is at garage sales. You will find often plenty of garage sales held within your neighborhood or nearby residential places. That’s because folks keep on moving to new houses.
