Netheads vs Bellheads

quote [ 10.01.96 – The most vicious battle on the Net today is a secret war between techies. At stake is nothing less than the organization of cyberspace. ]

This 22 year old article somehow popped up in my followed bookmarks. It looks like an unsolvable tech people conflict to me (only halfway through that gigantic article).

Obvious spoiler – back then, the Netheads won.

Oil it or Spoil it!

quote [ An overly literal collision engine will make you fall as soon as your feet leave solid ground. But what if you give the player just a few extra frames, and if they push the jump button a few milliseconds too late, you still give them a valid jump? ]

As opposed to the last one, this article gives some insights in that forgiveness sometimes makes for a better game experience. There was a longer Twitter conversation featuring even more adjustments collected in a Polygon article.

Battle of the Ax Men: Who Really Built the First Electric Rock 'n' Roll Guitar?

quote [ Many places deserve to be called the birthplace of rock ’n’ roll. Memphis often gets the nod because that’s where Sam Phillips of Sun Records recorded Elvis Presley belting out an impromptu, uptempo cover of “That’s All Right” in 1954. Cleveland makes the list since it’s the place where, in 1951, a local disc jockey named Alan Freed coined the genre’s name ]

'O Uommibatto': How the Pre-Raphaelites Became Obsessed with the Wombat

quote [ Angus Trumble on Dante Gabriel Rossetti and company's curious but longstanding fixation with the furry oddity that is the wombat — that 'most beautiful of God's creatures' which found its way into their poems, their art, and even, for a brief while, their homes. ]

Like Mortal Kombat, but fuckin these wombats got you dizzy

Peepoodo & The Super Fuck Friends | Watch on Blackpills

quote [ An educative series for children over 18 years old, Peepoodo & The Super Fuck Friends explores sexuality without taboos and in all its forms, including dicks and nipples. A positive sexuality, that is unrestrained and totally ignores prejudices… culminating into one single message: tolerance. ]

I don't think that you're ready for this. I swear, its not REALLY furry porn. If anything, its hyper sexual educational materials.

Make Every Piece Count

quote [ For years, the beef industry has leaned on universities to discover new cuts of steak. Don’t laugh: Meat science is behind at least one breakout hit. ]

As the reasons for the carnage cut their meat and lick the gravy

The Art of Failure

quote [ I play video games though I know I will fail, at least part of the time. On a higher level, I think I enjoy playing video games, but why does this enjoyment contain at its core something that I most certainly do not enjoy? ]

Found this via another article on what defines a game – judging from reviews, this sounds like an interesting notion, challenging purposeful behaviour.

Theres also a little podcast interview on it.

Training Your Tongue to Love Spicy Food Benefits More Than Your Taste Buds

quote [ Stuart Walton became very familiar with the stuff while researching his book The Devil’s Dinner: A Gastronomic and Cultural History of Chili Peppers. ]

He joined us on Bite to talk about some of the benefits of capsaicin and eating spicy cuisine.

Hmmm. Chili's. Good for you as well as good to eat.
