- Some people in Ohio have been trying to get a video gambling game approved by claiming it’s a game of skill. (Tried to link to an article, but the newspaper’s search results page won’t let me “see more” because a rollover ad covers that button. So, no linkage for them.) Anyway, my boyfriend wrote a program to test whether a game that depends on an 83-millisecond reaction time can really be considered a game of skill. They printed his letter, but left out the link to the game: http://jeremy.smallinfinity.net/games/react/
- CNN or BBC headlines cat macro style. Creepy in many cases: you get headlines about war and murder along with photos of cute cats.
