Re: Buttcoin

Crypto dot com, most recently known for buying the naming rights to LA's former Staples Center, had $15 million stolen from customer accounts which is busily being laundered . No indication yet that they know how it happened, or will be covering losses, or anything. If non-fungible schadenfreude is ...

Re: Game hacks

SMW Remade from Memory is all of Super Mario World, put together by the SMW hacking community, based entirely on what they're pretty sure the original level layouts and music are. It's the uncanny valley of SMW.

As a bonus, those are looking like conventional small-molecule drugs, of the sort that the entire pharma industry is built around - so if there's not some particular gotcha in the synthesis, any reasonably capable contract manufacturer can crank these out in job lots, far faster than mRNA production...

Re: The X-Com Files: All Y'All Gonna Die

There are not one but TWO stations devoted exclusively to dissecting cattle. I have to imagine they are just that baffled there's one of these surreal bipedal oafs for every four people on the planet. They have a tech tree of their own.
