Probably the closest I'll probably get to really flying without an airplane...
Amazing footage of Jetman and his youthful boy wonder... er.. protege, Jetlad (just kidding about the name) - actually it is Vince Reffet. This is filmed in 4k so if you got one of those massive TVs at home then you can take in all of the wonder in its high...

The promise of Microsoft's Hololens and run-everywhere Windows 10!!

Castles that cost less than SF homes
This is thoroughly depressing comparison. Castles that are cheaper than an apartment in San Francisco I have not confirmed any of these prices... So don't move out yet to live your " Dangerous Liaisons " dreams.

How Magic: The Gathering saved themselves from a Beanie Baby-like death.
I love Planet Money. And also love this radio show called Planet Money. [Hey, how did that Jack Benny joke get in there?] How Success Almost Killed A Game, And How Its Creators Saved It

Awesome Pixel Simpsons opening sequence
Awesome. Just watch it! Paul Robertson does it again! He did Pirate Baby's Cabana Battle Street Fight ( part 1  and  part 2 ) which is awesome. Also this great Gravity Falls excerpt. Oh the trouble we have with a Pixelized Street-Fighter-eqse character com...

Hard to believe this was only eight(!) years ago - frist iPhone keynote
Now it is hard for me to remember not having a well-integrated phone and connected application platform in one device. But it was only eight years ago. What an amazing revolution!  Even Dave the Wave has one! via Verge ( link )

Beat the rush! Learn 28 new hipster words now!
Ok, I know they remind me of sniglets from the 80'a  and we remember how badly that sniglet-mania turned out for Rich Hall and the rest of us.  (Geez, did I just date myself again?) Despite the years of therapy, these were pretty funny to me. 28 new words t...

Awesome Space Ship comparison chart
This is very cool.  It is painstaking as it includes Science Fiction worlds from movies, tv and computer games. It is funny to see how small the USS Enterprise really is. Actual location of this on Deviant Art ( link ) From  Dirk Loechel  on Deviant Art.

This sucks.  Massively was a great MMO news site.  It really covered the gamut with depth for whichever MMO you liked - even the niche-y ones which I seem to always like.   STO and DCUO, for example.

Hope they can crowd-source something.
