Oh my god it isn't.
Okay, credit where credit is due. Using gamification to ~~trick~~ incentivize people with nothing else better to do to moderate your community without having to pay actual moderators or community managers is clever in a very manipulative sort of way. So good job with that.
But here's a question: have you thought about the sorts of people who will be attracted to this unpaid job? Because let's be honest, they're not joining you for the Heroes Convention or whatever it's called.
Edit: So yeah, here's a video that does a proper job of explaining this thing and its implications. I confess, I had no idea what the YouTube Creator Community was, and I just assumed that YouTube was handing out powers to persistent trolls. And that was far from the only thing I knee-jerked on.
Finally, I actually think that crowdsourcing captioning is a grand idea. I just wish they'd do it in a better way than this silly leveling system. Off the top of my head, partner with Duolingo. You learn new languages by translating things that people need translated. People in need of translations pay money for their translations, and people learning a language pay with their time and labor for their language education. From what I know, it actually works.

I read this guy's book a while ago and strongly recommend it. It opens your eyes to all the awesome designs that we take for granted, and all the shitty designs that we have to put up with.
ETA: I guess I shouldn't've assumed that people would watch and remember the video. It's about badly designed doors. They have Don Norman, a professor of a bunch of stuff, as a guest on video. He wrote a book about bad designs called The Design of Everyday Things. That book is what I'm referring to.

This song Rap God won the Guiness World Record for Most words in a hit single: 1,560 words into its 6 min 4 sec runtime.
The song is FILLED with metaphors and references to dozens of previous legendary rappers that even the strongest hip hop fan would struggle to recognise all of. RapGenius has broken them all down (click on a line and an explanation appears on the right) . When he switches flows, its usually him paying homage to another rapper
hacking really? yeah lets scare the shit out of people, and not clearly state that the reason access was possible is because:
"The man then recited a password Gregg had used for multiple websites."
AKA, guy had his email and password leaked from any of the major hacks from recent years.
Which he uses for everything including his nest account.
Always use 2 factor authentication, and different passwords for each account people.
If anyone cares you can use https://haveibeenpwned.com/ to check if your email/password is out there on the internet for "hackers" to use and "hack" your accounts.
If you have been pwned and haven't changed your passwords in ages, then set aside some time to change every password for every account you have, and enable 2 factor authentication if it is available!
Its not fake either. Which is slightly disturbing.

I drunkenly purchased one off Amazon back in December.
I was out for after-work drinks with coworkers, and I’ve got this one coworker who bought one on a whim a couple years ago. If you get him started about bidets, he won’t stop; the dude gets on a rant like he’s the pope of the church of power washing your pooper.
But this time, another coworker who grew up in the Middle East chimed in about it having been commonplace where she grew up, and how she’s always found it weird it’s not a thing here. So seeing her as a sober voice of reason, I pulled out my phone and bought one.
10/10 purchase, and I didn’t even regret it when I sobered up. My wife rolled her eyes at me when I told her, but now she’s all about it. We go through a lot less toilet paper these days.
Edit: I’m seeing some questions about what model I got; here you go: The Luxe Bidet Neo 120.

Even including labor in that cost - overestimating it too - it would come out to, what? $50? I would pay this guy $100 to fix this part just for the honesty of his message. I'm sure he can't survive on $2 labor costs or whatever, so there's no way it would be that cheap, but even $50 for a quick ~30 minute investigation and replacement is basically $25/hr for that one particular service.

IIRC the rape bit comes from the part where they're forcibly/artificially inseminated by people/machinery for reproduction.
edit: People can/have/will argue over this point ad nauseam, don't assume that I'm the one making the claim.
If we were to attempt to settle the matter of whether or not it is rape, per se, we'd need to establish a contextual definition of the word rape and what is considered consent in this case. Dictionary.com is a good start. I'm sure that this very topic has been debated by more adept minds than mine so I won't conclusively say that it is/isn't rape... just that the convention of humans artificially procuring, diluting, and injecting bovine semen sure looks a lot like something that may be called rape.

And if you want to look further into something, there are links to quality content at the bottom. It's the way news should be. No speculation, no constant updates about nothing...just facts.
EDIT: Circa is especially great for long-running news stories, like Ferguson and other things of that nature. As the story evolves, Circa adds new info, and pulls the whole thing together. If you're interested in one aspect of it, they'll point you to more info, but otherwise it's just what's going on and what is known.

Solid video and it reminds me of So You've Been Publicly Shamed book.
I had a few conversations with a some people who wanted some random Dean fired for an insensitive remark. I told them nobody would care in a week but they told me this won't ever go away. I waited 7 days. Nothing new on reddit for 3 days and I sent a reply to that person, asking them if they still cared and they didn't reply to my comment.
You get this hot mass of hate and then the Internet moves on while the damage is already done. This is particularly true if you had real world consequences - you're fired, your name (picture/video) is now forever online and presuming you'll have a job in the future, this will now be a detriment going forward. Some kill themselves and those are the reported suicides.
The question is when will public shaming change from a more righteous movement to point out when someone has done something atrocious and when it turns into harassment and bullying. So far, the Internet errs on bullying due to diffusion of responsibility and there's no leader to say "halt, that's enough".
He's a tech genius, basically modified and cobbled together industrial scanners and things for his still images (which are also amazing) for the video he used a high speed camera he convinced someone to lend him.
Really good article about it all here.
> After months of research, he persuaded the German manufacturer Optronis to lend him one of its $16,000, high-performance industrial video cameras—used in crash tests and robotic-arm studies, and even for analyzing the hind hooves of show-jumping horses.
>Magyar now positioned himself inside the moving subway car, recording stationary commuters on the platform as train and camera rolled into the station. Again, the ghost of Einstein permeates these images, and again, he was warping time: Magyar shot the footage at 56 times normal speed, turning 12-second blurs into nearly 12-minute films of excruciating slowness.

I have NordVPN. It has its issues. A lot of sites behind some sort of DDOS-protection device or service (like cloudfare) will block a lot of NordVPN IPs. Amazon's main website often doesn't work if I'm connected to it. Also some minor sites, like won't work if I have a NordVPN connection active. It's pretty annoying.

yup. It actually is valid art because it has an intention. Duchamp in the 1910s did the same thing. Sign a name on a urinal (not even his name) and put it in a gallery, just to prove (or more accurately, as other people have stated, to disprove) that people will think anything is art if you sell it to them that way. Because of that, he's considered one of the best artist/art critics or his day. He basically trolled people a good century before actual internet trolls. Art like Duchamp's was also the start of a movement know as Dada, which was art that was basically saying, "fuck you art". Here's another Duchamp piece: http://www.wikiart.org/en/marcel-duchamp/l-h-o-o-q-mona-lisa-with-moustache-1919?utm_source=returned&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=referral.
Many post modernists believe that post modern art itself owes itself to what the Dadaists did way back when. So yeah, his art is pretty post-modern... but it's a old joke
EDIT: I added a few words, but read this for a more thorough explanation:http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/art/3671180/Duchamps-Fountain-The-practical-joke-that-launched-an-artistic-revolution.html
I have custom made headphones as well but they are a bit different from yours.
Interestingly, although we have at best the ability to twitch our ears, we still have the automatic response from the muscles that would've sup our ears towards the source of the noise, just like these piglets. We can see this by attaching sensors around the ear that pick up on the small muscle movements and also spot that the side that the noise is from gets a stronger response.

From where we stand, it’s a wonderful thing that that we have such good desserts, and we feel blessed that they’re known around the world for being delicious and singular and unique and unlike anyone else’s. If millions come in for the desserts, and hundreds of thousands also find they like the main course, awesome. There are no bad customers in this restaurant.

FYI: Hardware store chain is super easy to cut (unless you were at some fancy hardware store).
Probably significantly easier to cut than a super low-end u-lock. Even this $6 u-lock is probably harder to cut than hardware store chain.
Basically, if the hardware store sold it by the foot and any random employee was happy to cut it for you, it is probably no good. You want some case hardened security chain or something where they say "No, we only sell it in fixed lengths" or where they have to turn on something like an angle-grinder to cut it. Ditto for the padlocks...if your padlock cost less than a $25 mid-grade kryptonite u-lock, it is probably incredibly easy to break.
This is totally off-topic, but at 1:07, to the guy's right, you can see a little black desk fan.
FWIW, these things are AMAZING if you are gaming on a laptop and are having faulty fan/cooling issues. They push a ridiculous amount of air for their size, and are rock solid. I picked mine up at a hardware store for something like $15 three years ago, and the thing still works like a charm.
I've had two gaming laptops that had fans go bad, and both times, I set this little guy next to the exhaust port and flipped it to get me by until repairing/upgrading. In both instances, this little desk fan was a complete lifesaver. Kept my cpu temps low, prevented throttling due to overheating, and generally just brought the systems back to life.
Yeah ... good point ... we always try to eliminate the "curse of knowledge" for our videos ... see Made to Stick by the Heath brothers for a definition of this.

I liked it so much that years ago I made a four page digest for myself. I re-read it from time to time.

Japanese smokers commonly bring with them portable cigarette butt receptacle, kinda like this one:
I saw many Japanese people use them when I went to Japan, and Snake even uses one in the loading screens of MGS4. I think they're pretty cool and I wish Americans would start using them but unfortunately our culture seems fine with littering of all sorts. It's ironic when some talk of pride in their country and flag but trash it without even caring. The sidewalks in Tokyo, literally the most populated city in the world, are ridiculously clean. I've started telling people to pick up their butts and to stop littering when I see it in public, as long as it's not someone who looks like they might be nuts and would stab me or something.
"This planet has—or rather had—a problem, which was this: most of the people living on it were unhappy for pretty much all of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movement of small green pieces of paper, which was odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy.
Many were increasingly of the opinion that they'd all made a big mistake in coming down from the trees in the first place. And some said that even the trees had been a bad move, and that no one should ever have left the oceans." -

It's basically a misquote of a popular phrase that is also a misquote. I've heard the phrase on Reddit said as "You can't reason a person out of a position they didn't reason themselves into." which I think the source comes from Jonathan Swift who said "Reasoning will never make a man correct an ill opinion, which by reasoning he never acquired..."
They will apparently be using the technology for live shows. Screenshots of few other examples: https://www.unrealengine.com/en-US/blog/the-weather-channel-taps-the-future-group-to-provide-revolutionary-mixed-reality-capabilities

I haven't watched Dexter regularly since Season 4 ended, but I've kept up with it. Based on this trailer, even knowing a lot of it will turn out to be "dream sequences" - I think we're clearly headed towards Dexter being the main villain of season 8. Someone else linked this article in a comment:
One quote in particular jumps out:
“This was definite. We wanted to end it this year, but the network convinced us that it would be best to do it in two years. In some ways, this is a two-season series-ender. We have worked that out and know where it's going to end. Next year will definitely be the last year of Dexter. Absolutely.”
They wanted to end it with this season, but Showtime wanted to spread out the ending to two years. The trailer here is a bit heavy handed - particularly because of the use of "Change" by Deftones. "I watched a change in you." They are teasing the idea that Dexter kills Matsuka and Deb, but I don't think he's going to do either of those things. I think these "dream visions" are being used in the trailer to create interest and to show us that Dexter's "passenger" is bleeding out into the rest of his world.
My expectation is that as this season progresses, Dexter will become less and less reliable as a narrator. The season will end with him clearly wanting to kill his (likely) former co-workers and friends, but failing to do so. Season 8 will be the season where Dexter himself is the central villain. Whether it's told from someone else's perspective or whether it's told from the unreliable perspective of Dexter, we'll watch him hunt, be hunted and either die or go away for life.
Realistically, they can't end a show about a mass murderer on a happy ending.
> Arguably, he did much worse, but it still is a double standard.
Did he? I'm not sure that it was worse, save for the fact that his fiancee was knocked out and it was caught on tape.
Also, it looks like the doors are maybe opening for him to come back.
Even this was from two days ago. Who knows, maybe he'll be back too.
About all sketches are in youtube, some are potato quality. They have uploaded sketches accompanied with commentary video in their official channel. Commentary usually comes from the Self Suck Saturday streams, they are trying to fund animation movie Mars so they've been streaming for about a year now in Twitch, that then get uploaded to youtube.. at some point.

When I was about 10 my grampa took me down to Rufus's house and ordered a bean shooter for me. Rufus made a new one for me that was small enough for my hands. He showed me how to use it and warned me to be responsible. I killed a couple of birds with it, and I still have the bean shooter at home and it is numbered around 1,500 I think. Rufus was a good and kind man. Also he was on the late show with Johnny Carson once.
Edit: here he is with Johnny!
This page attributes it to a caricature of Socrates from Aristophanes' play The Clouds. While this does suggest it was never Socrates who said the quote, it would still have been written in Socrates' time.
There was infighting between proponents of nuclear safety and proponents of nuclear readiness in SAC and Los Alamos. Some people wanted to have multiple independent safety devices to prevent accidental nuclear detonations or launches, others wanted nothing but a big red button to launch the missiles.
Command and Control by Eric Schlosser does a very good job of telling this story, as well as the story of a nuclear accident in Damascus Arkansas.

The Design of Everyday Things is really approachable to people who are not in to design or human interaction as a profession, so I like recommending it for casual learning.
My wife read it, and she was able to apply a lot of the principles to house related stuff - like the organization of our kitchen. A web-design oriented book would do nothing for her.

The real issue is that this $10 Chinese "TOMTOP" thing they bought doesn't actually measure anything.

WOW. I never thought anyone would upstage Hackers (1996) for lack of realism!
Aside Matrix Reloaded, are there any movies out there that do it even close to correct?
For those who are unaware, despite the piles of nonsense of Matrix Reloaded, they did a great job with the real world hacking. In the scene where Trinity breaks into the power grid servers, she uses nmap to scan for vulnerabilities, finds that it is running an old version of SSH, then uses a real exploit called sshnuke to reset the root password. Though the vulnerability had been fixed for a few months by the time the movie came out, there is a good chance low security government servers had yet to be patched.
On a related note, Vonnegut used this concept to diagram different types of stories in a Master's Thesis that was rejected by University of Chicago for being too simple.
If you had fun with Pixels, might I recommend "Blinking Lights". It will probably give you as much, if not more fun, than the movie.
