For the first time in human history, a fragment of the planet Mercury has been identified.
The fragment, delivered to Earth following an impact on Mercury’s surface, is on view at the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History. Read more →
Gotta catch ‘em all :D

Latest in our parody play of Outlast. Frolicking in sewer water with a large, creeping pervert. That’s how I like to spend my days.
Let’s Play: Neverending Nightmares
Topic: Your Nightmares (and what they mean)
Do We Live in the Matrix?
Tests could reveal whether we are part of a giant computer simulation — but the real question is if we want to know…
In the 1999 sci-fi film classic The Matrix, the protagonist, Neo, is stunned to see people defying the laws of physics, running up walls and vanishing suddenly. These superhuman violations of the rules of the universe are possible because, unbeknownst to him, Neo’s consciousness is embedded in the Matrix, a virtual-reality simulation created by sentient machines.
The action really begins when Neo is given a fateful choice: Take the blue pill and return to his oblivious, virtual existence, or take the red pill to learn the truth about the Matrix and find out “how deep the rabbit hole goes.”
Physicists can now offer us the same choice, the ability to test whether we live in our own virtual Matrix, by studying radiation from space. As fanciful as it sounds, some philosophers have long argued that we’re actually more likely to be artificial intelligences trapped in a fake universe than we are organic minds in the “real” one.
But if that were true, the very laws of physics that allow us to devise such reality-checking technology may have little to do with the fundamental rules that govern the meta-universe inhabited by our simulators. To us, these programmers would be gods, able to twist reality on a whim.
So should we say yes to the offer to take the red pill and learn the truth — or are the implications too disturbing?
Attended Graphics Canada today. Had to take a photograph of this huge, awesome print.

Yeah, you all know who you are, you magnificent bastards XD
Talking boogeyman mythology around the world while we play :)
there’s nothing more disappointing than falling in love with someone’s work and then finding out that the creator is a complete douchebag
This. It does tend to lessen my enthusiasm. I know some might think that people need to separate the two, but I think that if you give people a certain impression with what you do, only to take it away, it just means you never put yourself into it in the first place. It loses at least a bit of meaning.

Anonymous asked: I thought you hated cult of dusty and thought he was an absolute moron?
I got to know him better and think he’s a good guy. Sometimes you just gotta give people a chance and look beyond a bad first impression.
Glad you suggested him. He’s very entertaining.
