This one-hour presentation by +Hans Rosling should clear up some common misconceptions about the current state and the future of the world's population. This talk gives me hope for our future.

Depends, have you ever seen any of his other videos? Then it's pretty much like that. If not, you're statistically probably woefully under informed about the state of the world.

Hilarious.

Fitspiration quotes are meant to get you to work harder, exercise harder. But like all other things, they do tend to get overboard. Reddit user evelee started off a thread showing how well the quotes worked with inspiration to get drunk. A few other redditors chimed in, and the thread turned pretty hilarious.

April Fools is to comedy as New Year's Eve is to drinking; lots of amateurs, some vomiting.

Splendid. Another reason to get rid of Skype. If only I could.
 
Sure, Microsoft, just tick those boxes by default that makes Bing my search engine and MSN my home page in ALL OF MY BROWSERS when I just wanted to update Skype. What's wrong with you? #MarketingSaysFuckIt   #CorporateMadeUsDoIt

That is why I use ninite.com to update my "important" apps. Sure I need to trust another company, but its far less annoying.

Sounds like an excellent business plan.
 
Wait a minute... This guys is a genius. 
Your website should be so simple, a drunk person could use it. But you can't test that, so I'll do it for you.

There's also http://drunkusertesting.com/ , but true to form, +spriteCloud B.V. testers found bugs on that site, both in sober and in drunk mode.

I'll never play D&D with antivaxxers again. Half the group died because "healing potions cause autism".
 
Großartig!

Ich spiele nie wieder Dungeons & Dragons mit Impfgegner. Die halbe Gruppe ist gestorben weil "Heiltränke Autismus verursachen".

+Nick Alcock The joke is, they didn't drink healing potions because they were afraid to get autism. Like antivaxxers, who actually risk their children's lives because they're afraid of imagined risks of vaccinations.

Music for the night: Imogen Heap - "Hide and Seek"
I really like the layering and the modification of the vocals here. Modern technology assisting an excellent voice (instead of massaging terrible vocals into something usable in mass-produced crap).

+Stefan Welke Do you mean "Believe"? Because that song is produced using a harmonizer, a different kind of vocal manipulation.

That is a really neat website, especially for Pen&Paper RPGs.
 
From a private share in my stream on how to quickly generate town maps:
1) go to https://www.mapbox.com/editor/#style
2) select the Pencil style
3) find someplace suitable
I googled for Berne, Switzerland for example and zoomed in to coordinates 46.948, 7.452, zoom factor 17 in order to get to the peninsula with the old town. Very nice!
Search. Search for a city, state, or lat/lon coordinates to jump to any place on the map. Learn more. MarkerLinePolygon. Draw markers, lines, & polygons. You can also drag & drop or manually import .geojson, .csv, .kml, .gpx, files. Add data overlays to your project.

A bigger mystery is why anyone bothers shooting at either of them at all. Why not, I dunno, drown them in lava? Surely if they can't move or get any leverage, they're stuck?

(someone will now point out an obscure comic in which they blasted their way out of molten lava using their laser eye beams or by heating themselves to 3000C using only the power of their egos or something.)
