Hey Shacknews, it's time for Weekend Discussion. Let's officially close out our weekend! Please take a look.
The Antikythera mechanism
It's incredible to think that this kind of technology existed so long ago. This sort of thing redefines our understanding of ancient civilizations. Part of me also wonders what scientific discover have we made in recent years that, if we were to just implement it correctly, we could advance our technology further?
The James Webb Telescope
Let's continue our science trip with a look at the James Webb Telescope. To think that this hardware managed to successfully deploy is breathtaking. There were so many potential failures it had to overcome. I cannot wait to see the kinds of images that the James Webb Telescope delivers. Might we get more insight into the very first moments of the universe?
Your daily dose of sudoku
It wouldn't be your daily reading post without a mention of sudoku. In today's episode, Simon takes on a killer sudoku, but there's something a bit special about this one.
And now... Other Stuff From The Internet!
My mate and his cassowary
Reading about a carpenter in Queensland who had a cassowary (pictured) wander into his workshop, and I'm cool with most animals here, including snakes.....but this would have me going into freeze mode.— the woods are lovely dark and deep (@rAdelaidegrl) November 26, 2021
Carpenter is fine btw, it wandered back out after a while lol pic.twitter.com/84ejIBhZVH
It's always hilarious seeing this image pop up on social media. The bloke in the background is a mate of mine. The bird, well, let's just say you do not want to go near it.
Fix the grid
Created in 2005 by Ryota Kanai, the so called healing grid has less regular pattern at the peripheral parts. If you stare at the center, the irregularities start to heal themselves because your brain strongly prefers to see regular patterns [source: https://t.co/MJk21LiA3t] pic.twitter.com/tCxwDgq7dp— Massimo (@Rainmaker1973) January 7, 2022
The grid needs your help.
Super Mario 64 but terrifying

Never heard of a cassowary before :O
Pretty sure they've been around since the dinosaurs.
Can you eat them?
You CAN eat practically everything.
I am going to eat a cassowary.
