Programmer builds bot to buy random stuff from Amazon, takes secret Santa to a whole new level
I feel like somebody did a more boring version of this a few years back. This leads me to believe that by 2020 we’ll have a version of this that delivers random items to random people and then films them via quad-copter as they react to their random gifts. It will be my favorite youtube channel.

shall i compare the to a summer’s daze
So this is an okay comic but it is also TOPICAL because it links to Ryan North’s TOTALLY AWESOME KICKSTARTER. He turned Hamlet into a choose your own adventure book y’all! And Ophelia is a bad-ass who’s great at science in it.
