Real-World Invisibility. Sort Of.

I've seen the future and I couldn't see anything.


Scientists have discovered a way to render a 3D object invisible. You'll still be able to see it because it doesn't work on visible light. It'll be invisible on the electromagnetic scale, though. That's a step in the right direction.

Poland Style

Why can't American politics be as interesting as the sideshow the rest of the world gets?


Some politicians from Poland decided to protest ACTA in a way I can appreciate. They wore the Guy Fawkes mask made infamous by Anonymous in Parliament. [slow clap]



Still No “Avoid Ghetto” Option

Is there anything Google doesn't do?


Directions you get from Google Maps are about to get even more useful. You'll be able to avoid areas affected by serious weather and natural disasters. Keep being awesome, Google.



Please? Pretty, Please?

I'll be happy if I never see that symbol ever again.


Microsoft may soon be doing away with their ridiculous points system used for purchases. Since this move would make things less complicated and easier to understand, I wouldn't hold my breath. Maybe they'll surprise me, so be on the lookout.

Oh, God Yes!

The world has seemed like a cold and desolate place until now.


A movie is in the works called Absolutely Anything. The surviving members of Monty Python are all confirmed except for Eric Idle. Hopefully he decides to jump aboard as well.

That was last week in a nutshell. In other news I've decided on my funeral arrangements. I want to be launched out to sea laying on a funeral pyre in a Viking Warship. Everyone present will draw from a lottery to determine who goes first in their attempts to set me ablaze with a flaming arrow. If the first person misses they pick who gets the next shot. This will continue until I'm on fire. This bit of dark humor brought to you by @kelknaughty. Follow me on Twitter. You (probably) won't regret it.
