We Live In An Age of Wonder

So this is a thing.

It's called PacaPong.
I found it from an autocorrect that went horribly right.
The internet is a place of wonder.

You can find it here.

+vlogbrothers  I have to say that "it's" in the Constitution is probably not a typo. The fact is, the spelling it's for the third person neuter genitive pronoun was actually considered acceptable until the early 19th century, so at the time the Constitution was written, it was actually correct. When you reference a 300 year old document, you have to remember that language changes.

I am starting to realize that, with the growing prevalence of people reading PDFs on a screen, publishers should abolish the practice of typesetting in columns, among other things.

+PBS Idea Channel Encouraged people to use YouTube's new animated GIF generator, so I thought I'd give it a try.
