Slip Into The Sweet, Ambient Sounds Of Science Fiction

A specific number of variables need to be in place so I can shrug off procrastination and get some real work done. Chief among them is setting the right aural mood. Now, I love listening to music, but the kind of audio I consume — mostly hardcore and post-punk rock — is only a distraction.

So one enterprising local guy built a road through a private field — the UK’s private first toll road to open in more than a century.

These days, there’s no need to stuff drugs up your butt to get them into a prison — you can just drop them in from your trusty drone. Unless you crash it, that is.


The Coolest, Nerdiest Lotto Result Ever Just Happened: 9 10 11 12 13 37

I thought this was some kind of joke, but it’s actually the results for the German Lotto — called Lotto 6 as 49 — for today’s draw: 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, and 37 (notice the extra nerd bonus: 1337!) What are the chances of this happening? 1 in 15,537,573.
