Great article that reflects much of what happens when we live in a 24-hour hype-cycle.

"You will never hear about the low tornado count in recent years, the lack of major hurricane landfalls on U.S. coasts over the past 10 years, or the low number of wildfires this year.

And, trust me, they will find them, and it will probably lead their newscasts. But, users beware…"

You got distracted by the shiny object. I posted the article because of the main focus; the media is going to hype everything in order to bring in users so take it all with a grain of salt and do a little research.
Obviously you were just looking for an opportunity to rant.

Is this Keurig's "you're just holding it wrong" moment?

The really great views come at about 4:30. Turn up the quality and maximize the video, it's pretty awesome.

Some very interesting stats in here. Adolph?
Meet the Name Fad. In 30 years, the names Natalie, Chelsea, Samantha, and Lindsay will sound how Nancy, Cheryl, Susan, and Linda do today. And in 60 years, the names Ethan, Cody, Brandon, and Matthew will be Earl, Chester, Bernard, and Melvin.

Trying out the new Vivaldi browser. Surprisingly much faster than Chrome for Google+. Of course it isn't being weighed down by a bunch of plugins. So far I like it though.

If you owned a computer in the 80s, you almost certainly knew BASIC. Each microcomputer came with their own spin on the language, and it wasn't uncommon to while away a Saturday afternoon copying code from a magazine line by line. The end product would almost always be some kind of game, or an interesting visual…

I always wanted one of these (not in Teal) as a kid. Still want one now.
With its out-of-this-world appearance and futuristic-for-its-time dash layout, the 1982 Aston Martin Lagonda was beyond its years

I've always wanted a Pentax 645. Now I want a digital one.
I do not make statements like the one found in the title of this article lightly. I only came to this conclusion after shooting with the Pentax for the past three months, in various conditions and locations around California, weighing the opinions of photographers I greatly respect. It wasn’t a...

The OCB in me means that I can't not look at the bracket on the left of the top of the sign being slightly off straight.
