https://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/gadgets-and-tech/news/quantum-human-scale-ligo-mit-nature-a9596056.html

I like the phrase "spooky popcorn of the universe". I hope this eventually turns into crazy bullshit technology like repulsor beams or gravity gun or something.

https://money.yahoo.com/boomers-struggle-to-save-enough-for-retirement-survey-finds-205447433.html

Wait what, you mean 401k's have only been around since the 90's?? What the fuck. So absolutely nobody has gone from new career to retirement age with a 401k yet????

This is some misleading bullshit, man. Fuck this corporate crap.

Weakening GNU/Linux by Disempowering Its Leaders and Founders, Replacing Them With Microsoft Employees and GNU/Linux-Hostile Moles

http://techrights.org/2020/06/04/weakening-stallman-and-torvalds/

The beginning of this article reads like a Star Wars tragedy. The rest of the article just feels bad because I like what modern Microsoft is doing and it's hard to read about a mega corp doing what mega corps do behind the scenes. Indie dev and indie art is the only way to go.

Jesus, this is nuts. I think it's safe to say that they've perfected rocks. The coolest part is the real time lighting I think.

Damn, not sure why the headline is throwing shade, this looks fantastic. I want to be able to make casing like that, especially for my raspberry pi project.

Paleontologist who Uncovered Prehistoric River Monster's Tail Explains why it's Such a Game-Changer

This is really fucking cool. It's really weird to realize that dinosaurs are still being discovered and studied so when you go back and read about things they're completely different from what you learned in elementary school. Anyway, it looks like the Spinosaurus doesn't look like a bigger T-rex anymore (like in Jurassic Park), but instead like a giant newt. Also the T-rex most likely looks like a big fluffy bird.
