Other Ten Percent 11/20/13

Nov 20 2013

I’m really curious what it’ll be like if I keep banking these early. At this point I’m still not even a week ahead of actual time (though it’s getting close) and I’m already seeing some weird effects. I wonder if they’ll ever get so far ahead of real time that link rot starts to be a problem. Probably not.

Forget Your Keys on Purpose: Automatic Wireless Locks for Everything
So we got these cool networked lights for Dance Party this year and now I kinda wish everything I owned worked off my router but I also wish making that dream a reality didn’t cost like a billion dollars sooooooo.

Women Out Of Refrigerators: Coagula
Comics in the 80s were super weird you guys. I’m just not sure even this gets across how weird they were.

The exciting world of low-stakes science. Or should I say low-STAKE…oh wait it’s spelled the same way.

Earth’s tides, explained in 9.999 seconds
Once they bank a few of these I feel like they’re going to become really useful ways to shut people down in online arguments.

You must watch this Doctor Who 50th Anniversary prequel immediately
That headline is not accurate unless you’re actually a Doctor Who nerd. If you are though then this thing is kinda more exciting then the last season or two of the actual show has been. The 8th doctor shows up for only the second time ever on screen after the really horrible TV movie in the 90s, basically confirms that all the radio adventures the BBC has been having him do for 10 years are official Doctor Who canon and then pretty much gives a complete picture of everything that happened between the old series stopping and the new series beginning. Well, except for the stuff that’s presumably going to get explained in the 50th anniversary special.

Sorry that all I do is post Pete Holmes sketches now. I hope the fact that I’m doing these so far in advance hides that a little.
