Billionaire Chuck Feeney achieves goal of giving away his fortune

quote [ Chuck Feeney has achieved his lifetime ambition: giving away his $8bn fortune while he is still around to see the impact it has made. ]

A remarkably mature attitude - and more fun than spending it all on lobbyists and prostitutes. And prostitutes for the lobbyists. And lobbyists for the prostitutes. It's prostitutes and lobbyists all the way down.

Scientists baffled by orcas harassing boats

quote [ Reports of orcas striking sailing boats in the Straits of Gibraltar have left sailors and scientists confused. Just what is causing such unusually aggressive behaviour? ]

Sorry orcas. Too little, too late.

Goat Valley Campgrounds - a Creepy Pasta Saga

quote [ CAMP RULE #2: Fairy rings are generally benign. If there are the remains of a small animal inside the ring, however, inform camp management immediately. CAMP RULE #3 Don’t follow the lights. I can’t believe I even have to say this one. Don’t follow the lights! ]

I spent yesterday reading this saga about a blue collar Buffy with no mentor running a camp site in a forest of Eldritch Abominations. The writing style is a bit Internet, but it's imaginative and there is a compelling story arc. I visualise the "Man with the skull cup" as the Analinguist from Oglaf, and the protagonist's parents (in flashback) as Young Marge and Homer.

Fall of the First Cities - The Sumerians

quote [ In the dusts of Iraq, the ruins of the world's first civilization lie buried. This episode, we travel into the extremely distant past to look at the Sumerians. These ancient people invented writing and mathematics, and built some of the largest cities that the world had ever seen. ]

Surprisingly well made, with beautiful photography.

The Art of Code

quote [ A complex number is like a project plan: It has a path that is real, and a path that is imaginary. ]

Life programmed in Life itself. Programs that output their source code. Programs that output their source code in a different language. A language that targets music. A language whose source code are recipes. A language whose source code is modern art. A language whose source code are plays. A language whose source code are power ballads. Be a "Rockstar" programmer.

As anti-brutality protests fill streets of American cities, netizens cram police app with K-Pop, airwaves with NWA

quote [ Police asked the public to upload videos of protesters via its iWatch Dallas mobile app. Instead, netizens flooded the service with videos of South Korean K-Pop performers. Police were forced to take down the app. ]

"On Saturday night, a mischief-maker broadcast over the frequency Chicago police were using for communications, blaring out the classic NWA track F*ck the police." I think some Sting would have been a funnier choice.

Calvin & Muad'Dib

quote [ I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. ]

Officially sanctioned (or at least accepted by) by Bill Watterson ('s publishers)- Calvin and Hobbes and Dune.

Ask SE: At last, it is time to answer the most important question in gaming history - Is Guybrush's pants falling down funny or not?

quote [ Ron: This is like the greatest scene ever. It's like the pinnacle of humour. It's an un-toppable moment. Tim: But did he pull his belt off in order to dig? ]

Ron Gilbert and Tim Schafer. Two legends of computer game design, but there is one question they cannot, will not ever agree on. Is Guybrush Threepwood's trousers falling down funny?
