Hair “in accordance with the British lifestyle.”, from here

Hal

Oh, and also . . .

---I rather like Patrick Stewart's hair . . . !

I was a bit disturbed by the Michael Jackson thing but the magic for dogs made everything alright again.

Connor

Thumbs up for the sponges and dog magic.

BenSix

Oh, and also . . .

Kim Jong-un, meanwhile, has let himself go.

David

Kim Jong-un, meanwhile, has let himself go.

The pressures of leadership, clearly.

The science of dancefloor seduction

Next time I go to a disc-o-theque I'll remember to bend and twist my right knee. Not the left one, just the right.

Anna

Landmarks.

An interesting bunch as always. The dogs react to magic much as I do - with exasperation rather than awe = and I have already sent the,(suprisingly accurate), Game of Thrones catchup to my far flung family.

I'm not sure you didn't miss this one deliberately, for as Basil said at IMAO you can never unsee pole dancing robots.

David

you can never unsee pole dancing robots.

Apparently the technology has moved on. There’s now a gentleman’s pleasure model, complete with thigh-boots, in-built pole and an assortment of mysterious stains.

Some kids have all the luck. They get to be real superheroes.

2048 Numberwang

Awesome.

Also awesome, a 2048 solver ... seen in action!

Henry

I did get to 2048 - worked out a strategy (you stack the larger numbers up on one side)

My family were thrilled..

sackcloth and ashes

'Everyone in the state should have hair like mine'.
'They do, Dear Leader. Just not on their heads'.

BANG!!!

Kevin B

So which is the greater threat to humanity's future; Cyberdyne or pole dancing animatronic gentlemen's pleasure robots?

Simen Thoresen

Wow. From the 2048-solver I found a trailer for the 'Battle of the Damned' -movie. An unpolished gem from 2013 featuring Dolph Lundgreen. There will be beer tonight.

Beer and Dolph.

Dom

On 2048, I can't get past 1024! But I have two questions. Is there any rhyme or reason as to where the new cell will appear? And why is the new cell sometimes "2" and sometimes "4"?

Also, on Numberwang, what is happening? How do I know what the merged cells will produce?

David

Dom,

Also, on Numberwang, what is happening? How do I know what the merged cells will produce?

The rules of Numberwang are something of a mystery.

Dom

Ah, so the joke is on me. I'm glad I didn't spend a lot of time trying to work it out.

David

Hey, at least you noticed something was awry. Someone somewhere is still playing the thing with growing exasperation.

Dom

Well, it was going to happen sooner or later, but this was a little too soon. "How the Game 2048 Could Implicitly Enforce Real-Life Hierarchies"

How the Game 2048 Could Implicitly Enforce Real-Life Hierarchies

A large and growing percentage of “progressive” mental activity bears a strong resemblance to cultivated neurosis.
