There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. Some kind of high powered mutant never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

Oh my Lordy!

Everything about this image is unbelievably impressive. Let's see if I can list them shall we.

1. This is a web app that run in a browser. When I compare this to the user experience hell that I enter everytime I try to watch a video someone sent my Facebook messenger it makes me want to cry.
2. It works on mobile.
3. It makes use of gyroscope and compass so it works with VR headsets.
4. Rendering and load time is incredibly smooth fast. As someone that works with web developers this blows my mind.
5. It's a 360deg image and the stitching is perfect.
6. Everything is in focus, from the closest spec of dust, to the furthest star.
7. The lighting and contrast is balanced perfectly. This may not sound like a big deal, but it takes a talented professional photographer to achieve this.
8. Zoom in and have a look at the detail! Holy crap.
9. Have a close look at that bright star just to the left of the rover and tell me that is not impressive.
10. This is a 4000 megapixel image. I have trouble viewing 20 megapixel images over my home network.
11. Did I mention that this photo was taken on another planet?
12. It was transferred over space wifi where the RTT for a packet is between 8 and 48 mins.

I heard the song "Come and get your love" by the band Redbone the other day. (for those who don't know, it's that song from the start of Guardians of the Galaxy). And I got inspired to give my son an awesome mixtape of songs that I used to love back in my teens and early 20's. Please don't troll me too hard for my choice of music style.

A great article of John Pilger speaking his mind, to and failing to sugar coat it. I know many people will immediately dismiss much of it as bulls***. But I recommend you read it anyway. It's good for the soul to hear the other side of the story.

In all seriousness, this is a GREAT idea.

We have always been at war with Eastasia. War is peace.

Best leak ever! In one fell swoop they have hit Putin, FIFA, and the Prime Minister of Iceland where it hurts. In their secret hidden offshore slush fund pocketbook. And that's just day 1.
