bdickason writes "Games Media Properties released the initial press release for the World Series of Video Games, a 6-stop worldwide event that features PC and Xbox gamers competing for a million dollars in prizes. Sponsors include Intel and Xbox 360." From the article: "The unlikely Midwestern city of Louisville, KY will play host to the first WSVG event at its Kentucky International Convention and Exposition Center from June 15to 18. What makes this event interesting is not the huge size and extra side acts, but the integration with Swedish super-LAN, Dreamhack, whose dates and time will coincide. The release states that 'American and European teams will have the ability to compete against each other from these two events,' indicating that international travel might not be required and that online play might determine the winner. Let's hope their server is somewhere in the Atlantic!"
Today's scientific question is: What in the world is electricity?
And where does it go after it leaves the toaster?
