Out of the Blue

Happy April Fools' Day, the annual celebration of everyone's inner hilarious comedian. In a completely unprecedented move this site's name has permanently and irrevocably changed to Pink's News. We have also been acquired by Microsoft, Sony, the Embracer group, AND Compaq, are going full VR, have designed our own game, are locking all our content behind a hard paywall, and are becoming a sponsored Star Citizen fan-site. But in the meantime, we'll also try (and probably fail) to separate the jokes from the news. Be safe out there.

Foolish Round-up

An excellent April Fool's Day, made it through the whole day without having to deal with any April Fool's nonsense.

Plant nutrient density loss can be completely reversed by remineralizing the soil, a number of different ways. It's not about CO2. One method involves dumping dehydrated sea water, aka sea solids. Usually rehydrated for application. Companies like Sea-90 harvest the stuff in bulk. There are many other ways. Too often soil is pumped full of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium for short term yields / quantity. The micro nutrients get ignored, and the quality of the produce suffers.

But hey, if you want to turn your farm or garden soil quality into a nearly unsolvable global problem, knock yourself out. I'm sure Monsanto (or their peers), with their new bioenhanced seeds will save the planet. Yay.

Pink's News installed Denuvo on my computer. Technically late to the party because I had to work. Just pretend I posted it earlier in the day.
Part of the paywall. Should have mentioned that.

There's something there I think. Who's our best programmer? Maybe Frans; I hear that he isn't busy.

So what would a Bluesnews game look like? Is there anything that equates to "making the frogs gay!" and "I'll eat your ass!!" that would make for a catchy, goofy platformer that gains notoriety on controversy alone? I'm thinking not, so we'd probably have to approach it from a different angle.
It would be made by PlayWay and would be titled, Game News Aggregation Simulator.
SpaceCaptain Commenter would be DLC.

I'd go for G-NIAS (sounding like "genius") - Gaming-News Information Aggregation Simulator.
