There were thoughts of filling this with a little more substance and they were summarily disregarded. It’s going now, or never.
Smaller post means less content, but there is still plenty to read. From quantum physics ruining your day [again] to problems with traffic systems, from GPS screw-ups to the end of the internet, real life with internet lag to future seeking movies, photography to the art of making a globe map, fish that walk and horoscopes. So let’s keep it short and jump in:
It has been a good week for reading; so much that was actually interesting and so little kerfuffle about previously noisy and annoying things. Not that any of them are more important or unimportant compared to the others; rather that it has been a nice change of pace for it all.
Anywa, we have things here about the Olympics [I can still use that word, right?], lots and lots and lots of 3d printing, cinema awards, gemstones, mobile gaming, software updates, weather, subway station remodelling, music and mashups, vehicles, the alphabet [sort of], uplifting things and depressing things, prehistoria unveiled, magicians and murder, webcomics and the rise of civilisations. Dive in, eat up and laugh loudly:
Once again, the date this was supposed to be posted has passed; the days slip away as we draw into a beautiful, and hot, Summer.
Lots of things happened over the weekend, Doctor Who being one of the biggest in some places and circles. Anywa, into it today with all sorts of things: time pieces that don’t tell the time, ways to escape working, surveillance in the city, cities on water, the rise of artificial intelligence, autonomous robots with guns, phones [and] sex, tiny computers, virtual money, and the Addams Family! Just jump in and start reading:
That week went far quicker than could be accounted for; at least that is the thought here. Regardless, we have here plenty of things to make up for the gap in time. Lots of Halloween related links, of course and everything else. From breaking CAPTCHA to programming robots, horoscopes to cartoon maths, Lego-style phones to AR alternatives, life hacks to comments on porn videos, false identities to microscopic imagery, spying on the Brits to chaos theory, haunted paintings to period RPGs, video games without rules to breaking the rules of video games, football players to pop-up picture books, Steve Jobs to Ender’s Game, giant death storks to fighting like a gentleman. It’s all quite a mess; so dig in and enjoy:
And we’re back. Not on schedule, because that is something that will never happen, and everybody knows it. Instead we have a smattering of articles from the past few weeks. Breaking Bad and Wonder Woman, productivity and social media, massage and horoscopes, language and mathematics, drugs and card games, televisions and games, sphinxes and salamanders ducksand octopusses, oh my! This one contains almost everything, with a few obvious exceptions …
But first, some Bowie, but not for the usual reasons:
