View Full Version : An Aperture Science Internet-based Trademark Altercation

2007-12-11, 01:24 PM
I downloaded Portal on Sunday and finished on Monday. I loved it - I thought it was an effective combination of puzzles and humour. I've never played any of the Half-Life games, so what I know about the setting i've learned from my friends. One thing we've noticed is GLaDOS's habit of trademarking every possible thing. Examples include

The Aperture Science Weighted Storage Cube (its just a cube!)
The Aperture Science Unstationary Scaffold (a moving platform)

Noting this trend, we came up with some of our own:

The Aperture Science Horizontal Ambulatory Surface (the floor)
The Aperture Science Vertical Ceiling Aid (the walls)
The Aperture Science Internal-Combustion Locomotion Vehicle
The Aperture Sceince Photosynthetic Wood-Producing Life-Form (tree)
The Aperture Science Magnetically-Guided Avian Message and Pathogen Transport (pidgeon)

I'd be interested to see what others you guys can come up with.
