It’s Wednesday night once more my friends which means it’s time for a little Evening Reading! If you’re new to our Evening Reading features, they’re a great way to quickly catch up on everything posted to Shacknews that day while also checking out some fun and interesting finds from around the net. With that being said, let’s jump right into the Evening Reading for Wednesday, February 1!

In case you missed it at Shacknews:

And now, other stuff from the internet!

Super Soaker

One of the coolest inventions ever.

A great watch.

Another fantastic episode of television.

Best casting ever

Friends... or enemies?

Or both. 

Paul Stamets on TLoU Cordyceps

"In reality, Fungi offer us today some of the best solutions that are needed for solving many of the existential threats that we face. In fact, Cordyceps-like fungi could replace the majority of chemical pesticides with an ecologically rational and economically scalable solution."



Boston geography

I mean, it's not accurate, but it's funny. 


So cute!

Alexey Pajitnov and Henk Rogers at D.I.C.E.

Shared this with the Tetris film announcement but want to pop this in here as well. If you've never heard Henk Rogers talk about acquiring the rights to Tetris, it really is a wild, must-listen kind of story. I'm looking forward to seeing it play out in the Tetris film once it's released!
