Perspective for the next time we think we're having a bad day.

A car has a blowout on a major highway.
Spin out of control and come to a stop across the fastest lane.
Get hit by a bus which throws the car off the highway.
The car rolls down into the ditch and comes to rest upright,
The car bursts into flames.
All occupants die.

In a massive understatement, no fun at all.
A 1948 Chevrolet was travelling westbound in the far-right lane and "sustained a tire issue," losing control and swerving into a motor coach, according to the OPP.

Holy Crap!!  This going to put a crimp in LRT construction.  Not to mention the next few days of rush hours
A massive sinkhole has formed next to a shopping mall in downtown Ottawa, causing a gas leak and forcing the evacuation of all nearby businesses.

Biopunk because -

"They're laboratory mice,
They're genes have been spliced,
They're dinky, they're Pinky and the Brain"

One of my favourite tv cartoons.
Are you pondering what I’m pondering? No, it has nothing to do with monkeys and dental floss. We’re ranking every single one of Brain’s schemes—both from the Pinky and the Brain series and their shorts on Animaniacs—and thereby take over the internet! (Enh, we’ll figure that part out later.)

For the Star Wars/Top Gun fans
Since I had a lot of fun putting together a fun mash up with Star wars and Kill Bill I was thinking all the dog fights in star wars would go great with Kenny Loggin's…

Crazy doesn't mean stupid. Of course, intelligence isn't wisdom either.

What if I told you that there is an alternate Earth where all the money spent on science fiction movies about space in this universe was actually spent on exploring space in that universe...

And the results are everything we dreamed of.

How Calvin and Hobbes saw themselves
 
Geek Question of the Day: Sometimes long after we've experienced a story, we come back to it, only to discover things that our young eyes and ears missed. That brings us tonight's question; What stories from your childhood, upon reflection, have layers or references that you missed back then? I've deliberately made this one vague to cover pretty much any type of story. For the record, this question was inspired by a conversation in one of our recent podcasts! #gqotd

I always did like Pinky and the Brain.

"No don't tell me! I'll get it. The Lord is vengeful. Oh, spiteful one! Show me who to smite, and they shall be smoten!"

It's just that kind of day.

I can just hear hear the steam man walking along this street.
Vancouver, 2015 Gastown's iconic steam clock let's off a little steam.
