Are You a Millennial?



Millennials don't want to be lumped into a group. And they don't want to be labeled -or do they? These folks don't hesitate to tell you how they are special and different, and they'll take a label as long as they get to choose it -and as long as it isn't Millennial. Not wanting to be seen as a Millennial is the most Millennial thing there is. I can't really blame them. Generations weren't as labeled and pigeonholed when we Boomers were young and lumped together.

How a TV Works, in Slow Motion



Gavin Free, one of the Slow Mo Guys has an 85-inch TV in his house! That implies that he has a large TV room, and from there you can imagine how well viral videos pay. Anyway, he and Dan are going to show us how television sets work, using different kinds of TVs and their mega-fast cameras so we can see thousands of frames for every video frame on the television device, whether its the big LCD set, a CRT, or an iPhone. You're not hallucinating- Gav and Dan borrowed a camera to film at 380,000 frames per second to make this video. Oh yeah, it turns out that the TV was given to him for this project. Nice perks with that job! (via Geeks Are Sexy)

Not a Plot Hole

I don't even recall where I got this, but it was soon after seeing The Last Jedi, and I found it to be the funniest joke about the movie yet. But because of spoilers, I only sent it to people who already saw the movie. It's been a month now, so here it is.
