David Revoy has released 300 Catavatars on RedBubble. It would be an absolute shame if he managed to sell over 10,000 of these because you would have something physical to show for it instead of the nitwit that managed to net themselves 10,000 Euros in some bullshit nonsense coin for selling digital versions.
Yep, a damn shame.

Delete Chrome. Now.
Google is using its exceptionally powerful position to make *the browser itself* analyze your browsing behavior and serve that on a plate in the form of "cohorts" to anyone interested.
They are transforming Chrome into a "browsing-history-passport" - right now.
If you care about your intellectual freedom even a little bit, you must put Chrome out of your life as soon as possible. Support others doing the same.
@craigmaloney david gerard who wrote a book about how silly bitcoin is then a book about how silly libra is has written a bit on nft on his blog: https://davidgerard.co.uk/blockchain/2021/03/11/nfts-crypto-grifters-try-to-scam-artists-again/
So I did some searching to figure out what a NFT is because I figured that folks would be asking me what they are.
As far as I can tell it's just some piece of cryptographic hashing that says that you own the thing and gets distributed to everyone else that you own the thing.
It's the equivalent of marking a fire hydrant (or a picture of a fire hydrant, let's be real) and saying "I own this now" to the world. That doesn't mean that you actually have exclusive possession, just a certificate.
US pol (California), important voter information
Via Adam Conover on Twitter:
"Uber, Lyft and Door Dash are paying to have fake "progressive voter guides" sent to California voters that claim Prop 22 is supported by fictional groups like "Feel the Bern." The entire Yes on 22 campaign is premised on lying to and misleading voters."
A few years ago we sent a message to Proxima Centauri at lightspeed, a peaceful greeting from Earth that was intended to show the recipients where we are in the cosmos, how we communicate, and that we're receptive to their messages.
Today we got a message back. The researchers raced to their translators, and slowly, the information came out:
"Your call is important to us. Please stay on the line and your call will be answered in the order in which it was received. Your call is important..."
I think Google should save everyone a lot of time and effort and jump straight to discontinuing new services:
"We are proud to announce that Google Kitchen Tools will no longer be available on Sep 1st 2020, nor has it ever been available. Should you wish to export your Google Kitchen Tools data, you should be aware that there is no data, as Google Kitchen Tools has never existed.
The Google Kitchen Tools Team"
Aren't you tired of high fantasy?
Don't you ever just want to be a kobold in space?

facebook reminded me of this so please have some vintage cursed sherlock holmes content
Someone on Tumblr has pointed out that for a true film adaptation of the Sherlock Holmes stories and how they are narrated, we need a version where it's obviously Watson holding the camera, making commentary as he follows Sherlock around, and editing it later. I would also like to posit that due to the episodic nature of the original publications of the stories, for a film adaptation, we need to also have them come in short episodes.
In other words, Dr. Watson is a youtuber
I don't know whether to preemptively start apologising for my life in the face of the rage about to come my way from all of y'all, or make it worse by photoshopping fake youtube icons. "KILLER GHOST DOG????? (BASKERVILLE VAYCAY PART 1)"
(Dr. Watson voice) Hey guys please remember to like and subscribe
half of it's vine compilations of just Sherlock doing something insane/theoretically impossible/definitely illegal and Watson turning his phone around to pan from Sherlock to Watson staring directly into his cameraphone with A Look On His Face
Irene Adler is the beauty blogger that made them sign a release and hand over a part of the monetized ad revenue after the back of her head appeared in a scene. They pay after Sherlock realizes that not only is she better than them, she will also absolutely steal all their viewers if pressed
They only encounter Irene because they're trying to steal her phone to get compromising pictures back from her. Case ends when Sherlock finds out that the compromising pictures Irene has were totally unsolicited. Only mentioned in later vine: "Hey Sherlock did you hear about that guy from Belgravia who got sent to jail after sending somebody a dick pic?" Sherlock, dripping with deadpan sarcasm: "Oh...... how.... terrible... for him.... truly a tragedy.... wrow..........."
Follow-up vine is the conversation continuing over a slow pan over a desk full of documents. "Wow... Totally crazy how stuff like that happens, huh..." All of the folders are labelled things like FULL LOGS OF SEXUAL HARASSMENT, CC: BELGRAVIA SPECIAL CASES POLICE FORCE and STATEMENT FROM VICTIMS A-F RE: SEXUAL PREDATION OF PRINCE "Yeah.... totally crazy..... no clue how it ends up like that, Watson... truly a mystery I'll totally never crack......."
