Evening Reading - December 8, 2020

It's night time in America, which means it is time for another edition of Shacknews Evening Reading.


Good evening, Shacknews, it's Tuesday night. This week feels like it's about three weeks long at this point. How is it only Tuesday? Not long now until everyone all around the globe will have their hands on Cyberpunk 2077, at which point the discourse can really kick off. There's still plenty to read before then, so how about we look over some of the things posted on Shacknews today and then some funny things from around the internet?

In case you missed it at Shacknews:

And now... Other Stuff From The Internet!!!

Dancing Pallbearers doco

This is a fascinating look at something that has drawn the attention of so many people this year.

Forty years ago

When high-energy situations and tragic news collide.


Working from home comes with all sorts of challenges.

Karl having a cackle

Stefanovic fell out of the limelight for a while there. Glad to see we can still laugh at his contagious laughter.

Galactic Federation interview

It's hard enough preparing for an interview as a single entity, imagine doing it on a global scale?

Four stills


AI Christmas Carol

O come, all ye faithful.

Cortex, The First Month

Have you heard the good news about Cortex? You should come and check it out if you've yet to do so.

        You actually cannot do that to me. I legitimately had a moment of panic and thought I'd put the wrote date in the headline. Timezones are hard, mate haha
