Here's a cool game that shows you a Wikipedia article with most of the words blacked out, and lets you guess the missing ones until you can guess the article title.

Fun fact, yesterday's entry (May 16th) marks one of the first occurrences of a fear boner in literature (although strangely, the words "fear boner" do not literally occur in the text).

For those who did this poll: the answer is $0. No matter how much money any player wins, eventually each gets a losing streak and ends up with zilch. This happens long before round 500, typically around 170-180. The main issue is that the players can’t quit. In real life, players don’t quit because they’re addicted; it’s called gambler’s ruin.

Many a 14-year-old girl has been known to exclaim, "I'm so random!" But how random ARE people really?

Well, as it turns out, you can test your randomness. Go to https://roadtolarissa.com/oracle/ and hit your left arrow and right arrow keys as randomly as you can. The webpage shows you how good it is in predicting your next move. Can you get the percentage below 50%?

"Once more have I seen the Count go out in his lizard fashion." Obviously, Bram Stoker made a mistake here: it should be lounge lizard fashion.

Rich Americans serving prison time always helps to bring to the public's attention to how completely rotten the US prison system is. Case in point: convicted crypto bro Sam Bankman-Fried is on the east coast and needs to be taken to the west coast. How? Well, if you're imagining some kind of Con Air transportation, think again: inmates are driven cross-country on a bus, stopping along the way to drop off and pick up prisoners. This kind of drive takes weeks, sometimes even months.

Met Plasterk als minister-president kan Wilders overal de schuld van geven. www.rtl.nl/nieuws/artikel/5450310/premier-nieuw-kabinet-namen

eribosot,
@eribosot@mastodon.social avatar

@alterelefant "Ronald Plasterk is 46 jaar lid van de PvdA. Die partij zal hij moeten verlaten als hij voor het Torentje, gaat namens een andere partij. Dat staat in de statuten van de PvdA. In dit geval zou Plasterk voor de PVV premier worden. Voor zover bekend heeft hij zijn lidmaatschap nog niet opgezegd."

Wat is dit voor bizarre constructie? Plasterk zou dus een partijloze premier worden, en ex-lid van een partij die niet eens in het kabinet zit? Ik wist niet eens dat dat kon.

Eric Trump just swapped seats with Rep. Donalds just in time for the congressman to appear in photos behind Trump's defense table.

That's what this trial is now for Trump, a political photo opp.

"I saw the whole man slowly emerge from the window and begin to crawl down the castle wall [...] I saw the fingers and toes grasp the corners of the stones, worn clear of the mortar by the stress of years, and by thus using every projection and inequality move downwards with considerable speed, just as a lizard moves along a wall. [...] What manner of man is this, or what manner of creature is it in the semblance of man?"

Oh, I know! I know! It's... Spideracula!
