Happiness

When I was five years old my mother always told me happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.

Let’s split up and look for clues

Somewhat random collection of things this week. Starts out quite techy: online fanfiction, public licences, leaks, robotic prostheses and gaming consoles; ends up quite arty: tables without legs, funny looking houses, statues to creep you out, and so on. Somewhere in the middle there’s a mish mash of humour, music, advice, history and detox.

Going by the first article, had all things worked out, this should have been posted a day or two earlier:

Screw them, it will always be a hard ‘g’ gif here.

Dump them all into the garbage

Lots of technology and science this time around: sea monsters, animals with superpowers, the possible futures and how we’ll deal with them and clothing embedded with gadgetry. More concerns centred around patents, privacy issues involving wearable tech, the evolution of a the latest insult for tech wearers, as well as a window mounted wall socket! All mixed in with the usual dose of humour and maybe even something that will make you laugh.

But first up, an odd recording from an old vinyl – make of it what you will:

And to finish, an out of context quote:

Seems like a fair cop

And another big week full of news news and more news. All of which are far too negative to focus on here, so they’ll be ignored. Apologies, but this is about fun things.

Like dating online, Google glass [again, some more], Bitcoins, online television, horoscopes, Batman, creatures from the deep, names, CISPA revisited, and finally some giant animals waiting outside to eat you and everyone you know. There’s more as well, like webcomics and funnies and videos, so dip right in:

And hopefully I’ll post sooner than a week from now and the following week will be full of sunshines and smiles.

By its light, the vampire will die!

It would be easier to fill this out if I could remember what I’d read in the last couple of days. Instead I’ve had other things on my mind, and I’m just going to have to summarise from what links I can see here and hope that jogs my memory! Yes, totally hilarious I know.

There’s lots of comics and laughs and so on to start with, so you should be chortling away quite nicely before getting to the meatier subjects. After that we end up with discussion about the Singularity, this is followed by the ethics of data retention and using games to encourage good education, the Ouya getting a guaranteed release date and a hilariously titled article from Stoya. Don’t forget to find in there the website for the Japanese [where else?] themed restaurant and view a few of the videos!

Proceed and enjoy:

Oh look, it’s the Easter weekend. Enjoy the chocolate!
