Out of the Blue

Spent too much time in the great outdoors yesterday after forgetting a hat. As a head-shaver, this can be a problem, and sure enough, I've got a sunburned scalp to show for my carelessness, and with just a week remaining in the summer to boot. It actually doesn't look bad with a little color, but when the skin starts peeling it's going to be really weird.

Red Links: Thanks Ant and Acleacius.
Play: Sentry Knight 2.
Science: Microbial factories could produce locally brewed painkillers.
A closer look at the space shuttle that never got to space.
Media: Where Are They Now? Cartoon Edition. Erik Satie ftw! Thanks nin.
TRIALS FUSION (Teens React- Gaming).
Ping pong, plates, and a pack of gravity.
"FETCH....Umm....wait, I was only Kidding y'know".
Follow-up: "Deadwood" Actor Says More Won't Happen.

the rest of the matchups, i simply picked the underdog. How the hell do I get to be rank #2?

Because it's been an absolutely ridiculous two weeks with regards to underdogs winning.

Was out in the sun all day yesterday. Had on a hat and long sleeved shirt, and put on sunscreen in the morning, but forgot to reapply at lunch. Tops of hands are a bit seared today.

Could be worse. I had on a striped shirt yesterday. The white stripes let sun through, the dark stripes did not.

My shoulders now have a very nice burn pattern.

Ouch. Note to self, only wear solid colors in the sun.

Ok, so our Pick'em group. I'm ranked #2 and while I didn't choose randomly, I might as well have! I picked two teams that I know, and the rest of the matchups, i simply picked the underdog. How the hell do I get to be rank #2? Even in ESPN total standings I'm ranked 2290ish out of over a million signups. I just don't get it...

Underdogs have something to work for so they give it their all at the start... they also have more off time so very eager to play. Probably won't last past mid season

I don't see how anyone can blame him. That is a ridiculous, ludicrous, inconceivable amount of money. That is do-literally-anything-you-want money. That is enough money to build and launch and support another Curiosity rover. He could fund one hundred Psychonauts sequels.

He could build a Psychonauts seqeul that RUNS on a new Curiosity rover!

Interesting. You know, I don't really blame Notch. I'm sure being wealthy must be nice, but I have no interest in being famous. And depending on your personality, being famous could be a VERY heavy load to handle.

What about the other editions of Minecraft? Will they stop being developed?
There’s no reason for the development, sales, and support of the PC/Mac, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, Vita, iOS, and Android versions of Minecraft to stop. Of course, Microsoft can’t make decisions for other companies or predict the choices that they might make in the future.

We’re extremely proud of all editions and the awesome things you have achieved through playing together.

That is decidedly non-committal.
 
Playing: Super Mario Odyssey, Wolfenstein II, SNES Classic
