If you went looking for a piece of hay in a pile of needles, would you blame the hay if you pricked your finger? That’s what the mainstream media is doing right now by blaming Facebook (and to a lesser extent, Google), regarding “fake news” and the need to crack down on this spam. Besides CNN head Jeff Zucker apologizing for running unedited Trump speeches, which is pretty ironic for a news outlet that needs to have a 24/7 newsfeed, a lot of print and online outfits are walking in…Read More
It’s been almost a week since the first shots were fired in Starbucks’ War on Christmas. Since then, social media has been a sea of red. However, all is not as it seems.Read More
During a re-read of A Song Of Ice And Fire, I wanted to the a better sense of the scale of the world. There are some great two dimensional maps out there, including an interactive map at http://quartermaester.info/ that shows character paths over time, but I was looking for something more visual…Read More
Earlier today, Vox put out an article titled “How Big Vaping is misinforming the public about e-cigarettes“. In it, the author attempts to paint the growing grassroots vaping movement with the same brush as Big Tobacco. Unlike most online news sources, Vox doesn’t have a comment section directly below their articles, so I’m posting this here. The quotes are from the original article. It’s also Saturday morning, and I haven’t had my coffee yet… While the state campaign reminds its citizens that all the Big Tobacco companies also own e-cigarette…Read More
I was originally going to write about this later, but after seeing a thread about rusted springs on Reddit, I thought I’d take a few minutes and finish the photos now.

To be honest, two fish ARE playing Street Fighter II, but they’re oblivious to the situation. They are, after all, fish. Essentially, the tank face has been divided up into a 3 by 3 grid, each representing different game control. As Aquarius (P1) and Robert the Bruce (P2) swim around, they’ll unwittingly activate the controls. No fish are harmed in the process. In fact, according to the Twitch page, they seem to be doing quite well. You can watch the competition all day below, or go to the Twitch.tv page to get…Read More
Webcomics. There’s a metric tonne of them out there. Some, like the ever-popular XKCD and Penny Arcade follow along the lines of newspaper strips, while others are delivering individual pages of an extended graphic novels one page at a time, usually once or twice a week. If you read more than one or two, keeping track of them all can be cumbersome, until now…Read More
I’m sure there are a few people wondering about this…Read More
If you have a few minutes to kill on a Sunday afternoon, give Catlateral Damage a try. This may be the most accurate cat simulator ever created, even though it’s only in alpha form, except for the lack of random surprises like coughed up hairballs. It also answers the question as to WHY cats like knocking things off shelves… because it’s fun! Catlateral Damage is a first-person destructive cat simulator where your goal is to knock as many of your owner’s possessions onto the ground as possible. It is currently in…Read More
Sometimes, mash ups are too easy to make. That was the case for putting the theme for Star Trek Enterprise underneath the rebooted Cosmos opening credits. About a week ago, a few of us were out for pints, when my good friend Andrew mentioned that the two synced up perfectly.Read More
