Those funny holes in the wall and eggy-walky guns didn’t just pop into being, you know.

Game Informer’s posted up a detailed history of Aperture Science, the warped company behind Portal 2’s titular technology.

It’s funny. So read it. Snip:

1953 – Aperture Science begins operations as a manufacturer of shower curtains. Early product line provides a very low-tech portal between the inside and outside of your shower. Very little science is actually involved. The name is chosen to make the curtains appear more hygienic.

It’s Thursday morning. Get motivated. Portal 2 hits PC and 360 this year.
