What is Half-Life?
In case you're wondering about the answer, it is the time it takes for half the atoms in a radioactive substance to disintegrate.

Btw commenters, it would be easier to do these with hl1 since vox and the HL grunts had their speech seperated into words, and the scis and barneys had a lot of small phrases. I would really like to see some hl2 fad but it would be hard work.

That's right bzktt, their sites were obviously downvoted. It's not like their sites aren't funny so they decide to downvote good ones.

wtf is going on in the comments? I'm just as surprised as anybody that this did well at all, but no site lasts forever in the top 5. So in due time, it will be out of the top 5 (For whoever wants that), but until then, don't attack me as if I forced any
