Proven Links

Boston Police Arrest Two Pokémon Players After Apparent Gun Threat Against World Championships. Welp, this is absolutely terrifying. A couple of psychos were arrested after they started threatening people at the World Pokemon Championships. The cops found a couple guns and a butt-load (scientific term) of ammo in their car.

Seriously, if you're not safe at the World Pokemon Championships you're not safe anywhere.

Twitter shuts down 30 sites dedicated to saving politicians' deleted tweets. Aw man, this can't come at a worse time. Have you seen the field of candidates running for president? Luckily for us what twitter has done here just makes it a little bit harder to save those tweets. With the amount of attention politicians are getting on twitter these days there's almost zero possibility of you missing the next time Trump or Cruz says something insane.

The Windows Start menu saga, from 1993 to today. Wow, I remember when Windows 95 went by the code name Chicago. I think it came on like 12 3.25' floppies. I wonder how much I could get for them on eBay if I still had them. 3 maybe 4 dollars?

Every Carrier's Confusing Phone-Buying Plans, Explained. It's been a few years since I've actually been inside an AT&T store to buy a phone. My wife breaks her phone so often we've been buying her go phones (the AT&T windows go-phone is actually pretty nice) and I've had the same sorry Nokia Lumia for at least 3 years. Recently I've scratched the lens on the camera and I've been thinking about getting a new one but holy crap, buying a new phone sounds like the biggest cluster-F ever.

The Cheerleader Effect Has Been Proven By Science. Wow, this was written by the most bro-iest bro ever. I'm surprised my computer didn't try to fist bump me when I was done with the article. Still, science says women are hotter when they travel in packs. It's science, are you going to argue with science?

Know your Internet Celebrity: Onyx The Fortuitous

A couple days ago noted internet weirdo Onyx the Fortuitous was interviewed on a local Detroit news story about the opening of a satanic statue. Now either this clip is doctored or the editor at Detroit Local 4 has one hell of a sense of humor because this guy is awesome and they give him like a full minute and a half to go crazy.

"I didn't take your mail Ms Pemberton. Stop asking me that."

Now if you recognize Onyx the Fortuitous congratulations you probably spend WAY too much time on the internet. Below is some of his previous work. I think you'll find it hilarious but idontknow...

The Ultimate Trickshot Dunk

Man.. somehow I screwed up my DVR yesterday and didn't tape the first episode of Fear the Walking Dead. What's worse is that AMC isn't going to replay it until next Sunday. That is WAY to long to wait but what else can I do? Watch it on the computer like a sucker?

Anyway, here's the fanciest trickshot dunk video you will ever see. Big ups to the lone cameraman that was somehow able to get it all on tape.

Botchamania 285

Hey kids, here's you quick reminder that Summerslam is this weekend. You can get it on the WWE network for just 9.99. In honor of that event allow me to present Botchamania #285. I'm not one of those super wrestling guys that gets all excited about spotting botches in a match BUT guys getting slammed into a table and the table not breaking is always funny.

Smell Ya Links

Steam Gauge: Measuring the value of the Steam Summer Sale. This is one of those long form articles that keeps me coming to ArsTechnica. Every year I drop about $20 on the big Steam Summer sale, I think this year I really blew out my budget and dropped $25. I got Lego Hobbit, Lego Batman 3, Scribblenauts Unleashed, Baulders Gate II, and like 3 other games I can't remember. Fall out New Vegas maybe? Anyway the point is I'm a big fan of picking up games for $4.99 and less.

Here are all the Spider-Mans I can name. These are all pretty funny.

Building Seattle Literally Meant Moving Mountains. It's funny, Seattle is FULL of hills, big steep ones too, not the kind of piddly ass hill you see in the midwest. Can you imagine it even hillier? What did they do when it snowed?

Smell Ya Later Forever, KSK. A few weeks ago the groundbreaking sports blog Kissing Suzy Kolber closed up shop. They're still there in name but the editor left and so did all the writers. This article from their outgoing editor Christmas Ape Mike Tunison is well worth the read even if you never visited the site. It provides fantastic insight as to why most internet sites kinda suck. I link to a lot of uproxx (owners of Kissing Suxy Kolber) articles but man has the quality of that group of sites really gone downhill.

It used to be a site like WithLeather would post 3 or 4 articles a day but they would be good articles. Now it's top 10 tweets about Don Mattingly's long sideburns, or Which 5 Simpsons episodes would you start against Michael Jordan and the 97 Bulls, etc. The only reason I stick around is because they still employ 3 or 4 really fantastic writers. What's worse is some writers I used to really enjoy have started writing really hacky clickbait articles like "Here's why the Fantastic Four sucks forever and is a terrible property and no good movie could save it and all the things you like are stupid because I need to pay the bills with clicks".

Every few years I sort of shift around what sites I look at on a daily basis. 2 years ago I was spending a ton of time on Tumblr, now I'm spending most of that time on reddit. 5 or 6 years ago I used to LOVE Buzzfeed of all sites. It's sort of the nature of the internet, one site, or group of sites, gets popular for their unique content and viewpoint and once the money starts flowing it's a race to the bottom to see who can cash out the quickest. I don't even know anymore man. I guess SBNation has some good content.

The first 3 Minutes of Fear the Walking Dead

I guess we're doubling down on zombies today. AMC has released the first three minutes of the premier episode of Fear The Walking Dead, which just so happens to debut this Sunday on AMC. It's good enough I guess. I'd say it's a bit derivative of the opening scene to the Dawn of the Dead remake.

I know my last post implied that the zombie craze is a bit played out but I'm still looking forward to this show. The Walking Dead did a great job of creating this post-zombie apocalypse world but they completely skipped over how they got there. I'm not sure I want 5 or 6 seasons of this new show but a good 10 episodes where they lay out exactly how the apocalypse went down could be really interesting. Plus it's still August, it's not like there's anything else good on TV right now.

Scout’s Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse is a thing

Here's the totally NSFW redband trailer for the upcoming modern classic Scout's Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse....

So we're still doing zombies? That's cool I guess. There's pretty much an unlimited number of groups you can pit against them so the ideas always feel "fresh". You've got postal workers, seemstresses, saw-mill workers, model rocket enthusiasts, golfers, submariners, grocery store baggers, civil war reenactors...
