Evening Reading - April 6, 2021

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


Good evening, Shacknews, it's night time, which means it's time for Evening Reading. Let's officially close out our day of posting. Please take a look.

In case you missed it at Shacknews:

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

The problem of memories being fossilized digitally

Lauren Goode discusses what it's like to have social media platforms remind her of an event that is no longer happening. To see ads that are no longer relevant. To remind her of something that likely causes a lot of heartache.

Man uses Bitcoin to buy a chemical weapon

There's a lot to unpack with this one. Though, twelve years in prison doesn't seem like long enough for someone who planned to use a weapon that has the potential to kill 300 people.

Mass Effect is getting some gameplay improvements

There are a few good QoL changes coming to the collection, including an overhaul of the Mako.


Did you mean WEBP?

The sky of Mars

Looking up at the clouds of another planet is going to be incredible.

King of the Hill screens

I thought this screen was pretty fitting given the above tweet. This episode is from when Hank helps build a pool in Kahn's yard.

Horror movie tropes

BANG. Ooh, did I get you?

Twin Peaks

Twin Peaks The Return was fantastic. I think it's almost time for a rewatch of the whole show.
