Jeffrey Epstein had vast trove of lewd photos of young-looking girls, prosecutors say

quote [ According to the indictment, between 2002 and 2005, Epstein ran a trafficking enterprise in which he paid hundreds of dollars in cash to girls as young as 14 to have sex with him at his Upper East Side home and his estate in Palm Beach, worked with employees and associates to lure the girls to his residences and paid some of his victims to recruit other girls for him to abuse.
"In this way, Epstein created a vast network of underage victims for him to sexually exploit, often on a daily basis," Manhattan US Attorney Geoffrey Berman said in a statement. ]

"How will you feel if Bill Clinton gets implicated by Jeffrey Epstein?"

I dunno - feeling pretty fucking good with my "any pedophile is bad" policy.

Final Fantasy VII HD graphics mod makes backgrounds less blurry with machine learning

quote [ A new mod makes the PC version of Final Fantasy VII look better by using machine learning to improve the resolution of backgrounds.

“Using state of the art AI neural networks, this up-scaling tries to emulate the detail the original renders would have had,” the mod’s website notes. “This helps the new visuals to come as close to a higher resolution re-rendering of the original as possible with current technology.” ]

Similar work being done by Nvidia and other companies. Zelda Twilight Princess received the same treatment:

Pence: "Very disappointing" to see Obama "become so political"

quote [ Vice President Pence said it was “very disappointing” to see former President Obama return to the campaign trail and “become so political.” 

The truth is, the American people in 2016 rejected the policy and direction of Barack Obama when they elected President Donald Trump,” Pence told Fox News in a new interview set to air Sunday.

“It was very disappointing to see President Obama break with the tradition of former presidents, and become so political and roll out the same tired argument that he and liberals have made over the last eight years,” Pence added. ]

I guess that ruined his chances of ever becoming president.

WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! ]

These are the opinions I care about.

10,000 More Years of the Scientific Method

quote [ Is this some kind of wizardry?
Nope just good fucking science and piezoelectricity. ]

"Nature really had no idea what a shitstorm opposable thumbs would be, huh."

It's a music video, similar concept as "Everybody's Free to Wear Sunscreen" but about science.

Google loses Android battle and could owe Oracle billions of dollars

quote [ Google just lost a major copyright case that could cost it billions of dollars and change how tech companies approach software development.

An appeals court said on Tuesday that Google violated copyright laws when it used Oracle's open-source Java software to build the Android platform in 2009.
Tuesday's ruling is the latest development in a topsy-turvy eight-year battle between Google and Oracle. ]

Google getting beat up everywhere. All the while, phone companies have opted to give Microsoft royalty fees for using Android, which uses their FAT32 format.

Meet the Interstitium, the Largest Organ We Never Knew We Had

quote [ The human body was thought to have 79 organs—until researchers stumbled on a strange phenomenon that could turn medicine and what we thought we knew about the body upside down. ]

It appears Western medicine just took the next step to proving what Eastern medicine knew all along: chi or chakra networks.
