Damn it I missed all the fun. Was gonna ask for a panda and a black bear frolicking in a meadow, chasing a camper.

Holy crap, all this time, maps have lied to me! Sorta...

If you were to look at the world map, you wouldnt think that Africa is bigger than America. In fact, America looks bigger. But in reality, the continent of Africa could hold America, China, and a large portion of Europe!
Mercator type maps badly distort anything close to the equator, making it look smaller than it actually is.

A fun little puzzle

The more you know!

Learned about that in high school after asking about the oddity that was the Mollwiede projection style map. Thought this was common knowledge though by now.

Nope, never even knew there were different kind of maps. Though given how much texture work I've been doing lately, I probably should've seen how a square map couldn't possible fit around a globe.

In other news, Japan touched the Oculus Rift and the usual happened.

There's even a video! **Slightly NSFW-ish**

Why didn't they just add a Flesh light to the end of it?

Those bears are not chasing a camper though.

And because if they added a fleshlight they wouldn't be able to do a demonstration in public, but that doesn't mean it isn't possible. On the contrary i'm pretty sure the whole point of that is to allow for these things to be easily plugged.

The market for that is ripe for exploitation. Kinda makes me think about what i could do to make a profit out of that. Here's hoping for a bright future.

Gotta love people who seem like they're liable to cough up a lung, yet still go to class.

Tonight at least, tomorrow in Pittsburgh is the real indicator for me. But then again we seem to love beating the Pens at home.
