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.

ugh too early
"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

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**

Video should be posted every 4 pages to show the miracle that is technology.
As I saw the creature, I was as white as an egg. I was so scared I might crack from fear. As the humanoid began to lunge after me, I was walking on egg shells from how scared I was. It grabbed me, took me to its station, and cracked me open. The last thing I saw were my yellow insides cooked on a pan. Human nature is as evil as a rotten egg.

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.

They should use the Fuck Me Silly. That game would sell out like hot cakes.

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

Looks like the Flyers have their shit together now

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