Um. So this is a thing that actually happened.
After Sunday’s episode of Game of Thrones, I think it is safe to say that Jon Snow got the play of the game, eh? (Spoilers ahead.)
YouTube’s biggest star is infamous for screaming over footage of video games, and while he makes some good money doing it, it seems that his neighbors don’t really appreciate his shitck at all.
Damn, Rick and Morty fit surprisingly well within the world of Fallout 4.
Most players attempting Fallout 4’s Survival mode will just get their ass kicked. One player, however, has already managed to beat the entire thing on a single life. Funnily enough, the toughest challenge Kyle Hinckley faced along the way wasn’t something like starvation or damage, but rather a nearly catastrophic…
It’s basic common sense that ropes and fast, spinning blades don’t mix. But in case you need a reminder, recently released video of a near-crash from a rescue helicopter should scare you witless.
Unsurprisingly, humans and nuclear reactors don’t mix well. So what do you do when you have to maintain the inside of an experimental fusion reactor? Deploy Wall-E’s more competent cousin, of course.
John Whitney was one of the earliest pioneers of computer graphics, most memorably known for his work on the opening sequence of Hitchcock’s Vertigo. But even in this educational video for IBM in 1968, the distance that computer graphics has come is startlingly clear.

The argument surrounding encryption, mass surveillance and terrorism is a difficult one, normally invoking some firery passions, invocation of 9/11 and some mild racism. If anyone wants to debate with you, just sit them down in front of this video instead.

The fastest anybody has ever beaten the original Super Mario Bros. is with a time of 4:57.427. The man who currently holds that record isn’t happy with it, though. He knows he can do it faster.
Fallout 4 has a ridiculous number of terminals, most of which the average player will never see. One man, however, has actually spent over 25 hours poring through every computer in Fallout 4. It’s madness.
These days, the closest companies will come to fighting with each other is a snarky graph in a keynote presentation, or perhaps a strongly-worded Tweet. Back in 1903, the solution was much simpler: hijack your rival’s presentation in order to publicly shame them.
