I'm sure I've shared this here before, but every time I watch this bit (from when he starts talking about religion) I have to laugh and cry at the same time. It's one of the odd ticks of humanity and shows up in every facet of our culture. Emo was a really subversively brilliant comedian!

Heh, I have that problem all the time with G+. I feel as if I +1 things casually and then I come across something that really deserves to be noticed, and all I can do is give it the same stamp of approval as a cat video...

As miserable as I've been with my sinus infection, I'm still psyched about the release of Path of Exile's biggest expansion yet on Friday!

This video is a recap of some of the crazy things that people have done in the game while streaming. Probably the best free to play game in the world, right now, with the possible exception of Dota, LoL or Hearthstone.

Warning: Some NSFW language.

My Congressional Rep just sent me this little blurb, which now has me hanging my head in sadness. I was somewhat sympathetic to the Republican M.O. of essentially refusing to do their job in Congress. I think there's some merit to saying, "we need to stop and consider what we're doing, here," but this is purely malicious tampering with the separation of powers. That's not cool.

"On Tuesday the House considered H.R. 427, Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny Act of 2015. This legislation is nothing more than an effort to limit federal oversight of food, water, financial products, drugs and much more. Similar legislation has passed the House in two previous Congresses but gone no further. H.R. 427 imposes severe restrictions on the rulemaking process of every federal agency. It requires both the House and the Senate to approve every major rule issued by a federal agency within 70 legislative days. If either legislative body fails to take action, the rule is not approved and cannot be brought up again until the next Congress convenes. This legislation is designed specifically to delay the implementation of agency rules. The Administration has already said H.R. 427 would be vetoed. I voted NO. H.R. 427 passed." - Congressman Mike Capuano, 7th District, Massachusetts

Until Aug 2, Humble Bundle is having a sale on specific video games with 10% of proceeds going to Doctors Without Borders!

From the list, I highly recommend Bastion. It's a fun game with great music and voice acting!

I'm reminded of the physicist and philosopher James Jeans' thought bubble: "the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine. Mind no longer appears as an accidental intruder into the realm of matter; we are beginning to suspect that we ought rather to hail it as a creator and governor of the realm of matter..."
An experiment by Australian scientists has proven that what happens to particles in the past is only decided when they are observed and measured in the future. Until such time, reality is just an abstraction.

Dear Windows. When you have a system get shut down abruptly because of a power outage, perhaps trying to do a system update on boot isn't exactly the best idea... :-(

Perl6 as a container, useful for testing one-off command-lines or doing your own development. Note the container deliberately is left with the full build environment for that very reason.
I got tired of re-building Perl 6 on every system I touch, but the public Rakudo Star build of Perl 6 that's available as a Docker image is pretty badly out of date. If you want to get and build the latest and greatest, here'...

Reality has a fourth wall, and it has been broken. A silly question gets a rather meta answer... If you don't watch Agents of SHIELD, the in-jokes won't make much sense, but the epilogue is still amusing.

Steak is good, but I think you'd need to order "double meat"to get the full experience.
