So this is pretty excellent just on the face of it.

However!

This needs to also be interpreted through the lens of https://xkcd.com/1211/.

In other words: we now live in a world in which trained police dinosaurs hunt down robotic drones. This is reality, and it is awesome.

(H/T Charles Stross via http://www.antipope.org/charlie/blog-static/2016/02/maneuvers-in-the-dark.html for the insight.)
Attack eagles are training to become part of the Dutch National Police anti-drone arsenal

When I found out that sin/cos are just projections of a circle onto the Cartesian axes, it was a genuine revelation.  Doubly unfortunate that this discovery was not in a classroom.

This is excellent -: http://qntm.org/files/hatetris/hatetris.html - an implementation of Tetris that removes all that pesky random next-piece selection in favor of always giving you the worst possible choice.

It's made even better by having also spawned this: https://www.npmjs.com/package/base65536
You're playing HATETRIS by Sam Hughes. start new game. show a replay. website statistics.

I know I say this a lot, but sometimes it's the only thing to say.

So: this is a thing.
