Your daily dose of sudoku
Simon has been playing through The Witness, too, which has been great viewing.
Why does one glass now put me out for a day?
your 30s is having two whole drinks, two bottles of water, falling asleep on the couch at 930pm on a Friday, and being hungover the next morning anyway— Rebekah Valentine (@duckvalentine) August 14, 2021
I had one glass of red with pizza and felt like I'd been drugged.
A quick look at the Aussie mental state
I have never felt so seen by a meme pic.twitter.com/epErScj1sU— Jo Lauder (@jolauder) August 16, 2021
My little human brain is struggling with all this stuff.
A thread about Skyrim's iconic intro
So, I have a story about the Skyrim Intro and how hard game development is.— Nate Purkeypile (@NPurkeypile) August 17, 2021
That intro is famous now, but back then, it was just that one thing that we had to keep working and working on forever. I lost track of how many times I've seen that cart ride. Easily hundreds. (thread) pic.twitter.com/D0E0oZ5uX8
Game development is akin to magic.
Streamers are a different breed
Last year on Twitch I randomly watched some American guy playing Sonic. He said "hi, I'm American, don't know if you could tell" and someone in the chat said "she could probably tell from your accent" and HE said, with zero irony, "not really, Americans don't have an accent".— Sooz Kempner (@SoozUK) August 19, 2021
Everyone has an accent.

I managed to pick up a Halo edition of the Xbox. It's so damn good.
Science can be scary
76 years ago tonight at Los Alamos, 24-year-old graduate student and Manhattan Project physicist Harry Daghlian, Jr., was conducting a risky criticality experiment alone when he accidentally dropped a 4.4 kg (9.7 lb) tungsten carbide brick on a 6.2 kg (13.7 lb) plutonium core. pic.twitter.com/DRjZsm61Ks— Stephen Schwartz (@AtomicAnalyst) August 21, 2021
It might be more accurate to say that radiation is scary.
These are great strategies
It's akin to Lisa and Bart walking at each other punching and kicking.
