The World Cup's on and the upsets keep getting better (Costa Rica!?). My post about another (fictional) upset:
As I write this, the 2014 World Cup is fully overwhelming my brain. It also reminds me of one of the sparks, or at least guilty pleasures, for the working adult geek that I have become.

Today in 1944, US radio stations announced that D-Day had begun. The thing was, it hadn't. Article has good background on 1940s broadcasting:
