This figures to be one of the JPEG-iest Sunday Fundays we’ve ever had; as always, in no particular order, and for no particular reason:
1. Netflix may be losing its ability to license anything decent these days, but at least they’ve got this:
2. Unhappiness with Google Street View on the basis of privacy concerns is nothing new, but here it is in delightfully meta fashion. Check out this grumblepuss captured by a Street View cyclist on the streets of Stockholm:
3. Say what you want about Fox News, but they’re no Fars News Agency. Did you know that an “alien/extraterrestrial intelligence agenda” has been driving American policy since at least 1945? We, for what it’s worth, did not
4. It’s probably a good thing hockey is not America’s national sport; can you imagine Reagan or Bush on skates?
5. Bill Murray (probably one of the greatest actors ever) did a Reddit AMA. My favorite highlight: he was in the animated Garfield movie (a terrible movie if you go by the ratings) on accident, confusing a Cohen for a Coen.
6. I don’t even know where to start for this commercial. Is Game of Thrones so popular in Austria? Is it a cross promotion thing? Do they have to get rights?
7. I think this chart does a a little bit of a disservice to the hype around emerging markets, but it is a reminder of just how lucky (or just plain big) we are.
