I should have fond memories of GTA IV, but instead it's "Hey cousin, do you want to go bowling?"

Go watch Primer. Do it. It's the only movie you'll still feel like an idiot watching after 5 times. Seriously. It's amazing.

Anyone know why Chrome percent-encodes single quote in URI query? http://jsfiddle.net/unLrqxso/1/  Its a reserved char so encoding changes URI.

i know there's tools to tunnel IP o'er DNS but figuring out captive portal tricks counts as in-flight entertainment IMO

2014 Sep 18, 2:27

“This is the chronicle of the most epic retaliation and how I pranked my roommate with targeted Facebook Ads to the point of complete paranoia and delusion.”

Funny anecdote but also a how-to on creating a Facebook ad campaign that targets a single person.

The Strange & Curious Tale of the Last True Hermit

2014 Aug 21, 3:02

The story of Chris Knight, living in isolation in the woods of Maine for 27 years.

'Anyone who reveals what he's learned, Chris told me, is not by his definition a true hermit. Chris had come around on the idea of himself as a hermit, and eventually embraced it. When I mentioned Thoreau, who spent two years at Walden, Chris dismissed him with a single word: “dilettante.”'

'But still, I pressed on, there must have been some grand insight revealed to him in the wild…”Get enough sleep.”'

I don’t want to brag, but I’ve been telling that people all along and I didn’t have to live alone in the woods for decades.
