Holy crap. This was completely unasked for and completely awesome.
When did James Van Der Beek get so awesome? Katee Sackoff's 9000+ level has been well known for a long time, but Dawson?
This was fantastic!
Deboot of the Power Rangers. My take on the FAN FILM. Not a pilot, not a series, not for profit, strictly for exhibition. This is a bootleg experiment not affiliated or endorsed by Saban Entertainment or Lionsgate nor is it selling any product. I claim no rights to any of the characters (don't send me any money, not kickstarted, this film is free). This is the NSFW version. An alternate safe version is on youtube.

Stop clicking gross links, humans!
Stop caving in to being a gross link farm, websites.
If your site experience is so bad that I'm embarrassed to open your site at work, you might wanna rethink your sponsored links.
 
Sucking hope out of humanity / the worst from our worst.

I realize at some level that this is our own fault. If we did not click on these awful links, this thing would fall apart. Just look at "From Around The Web" links. So awful. On an article about space exploration! Zero relevance!!

Taboola and its ilk are benefiting from our low intelligence. One can't blame them. I do blame us for clicking on these types of links. It makes me a little sad that we humans can't see through this click-bait crap and we still click on the links.

It is also disappointing that LA Times, and many, many other sites, are willing to make a cent on this and have their brand take a hit for being just another link farm.

I have had that exact conversation, including weathering a look that throws some severe shade.
"I can't help that space.com's links look like porn!"
Note to self: get space news elsewhere.

Great post here. I think a lot of us recognize this problem, even recognize the roots of it.
What I haven't seen anyone get a handle on is how to fix it. Any ideas?

I think that requires a pull-start computer.

I take an unhealthy delight in Zero Wing being correctly placed on this chart.
Warning: this comic occasionally contains strong language (which may be unsuitable for children), unusual humor (which may be unsuitable for adults), and advanced mathematics (which may be unsuitable for liberal-arts majors). BTC 1FhCLQK2ZXtCUQDtG98p6fVH7S6mxAsEey ...

Today is a good day.
The Republican resistance in Congress surrendered to President Obama’s call to protect an open Internet, with rules likely to be approved by regulators on Thursday.

This article would be worth reading even without the amazingly good dis on The Da Vinci Code.

Somebody please give these guys a TV show, like, right now. 
I imagine something like  #TopShot  or #FullMetalJousting

The Australian startup Unified Weapons Master wants to become the UFC of gladiator duels, using a specially designed carbon-fiber suit that lets opponents exchange blows with weapons without hurting each other.

Today has been the kind of Monday that they spoke of in Office Space. I wish I had remembered to start the day with Turisas instead of ending it. I probably would have been about 30% more effective, and a hell of a lot more enthusiastic about it.

Right? And re-learn 3D design. I doubt the years I spent modeling fantasy settings in Bryce would have much carry-over to 3D printing... unless I got a printer the size of Unicron.
Hm....
