Sunday Funday

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:

Netflix Fireplace

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.
