Destiny 2 Lied To Players About End Of Game Experience Point Gains

I’ve been meaning to write in detail about Destiny 2 for a while now – I’ve been playing the game pretty regularly and heavily the past month or so and have been enjoying myself quite a bit.  One thing that I noticed but didn’t think about is that at the end of the game, once …

While this traditional identity is a complete load, with seasonal items and music being present as early as late October in some situations, this …

Oddity Archive Covers The Max Headroom Incident

One of the many more unique YouTube channels I follow is Oddity Archive – a channel devoted heavily to the more eccentric side of television, film, and home media of all types. Incidencally, the channels first subject was, of all things, the Max Headroom Incident. Now, Ben, the man behind Oddity Archive, kind of hates …

30 Years Ago: The Max Headroom Incident

In case it isn’t obvious, I have an interest in strange things, strange events, and the 1980’s. Well, it doesn’t get much stranger than this. On November 22nd, 1987,  the last broadcast signal intrusion of the analog TV era happened in Chicago. Unlike the Captain Midnight incident, to this day we still have no idea …

Space Shuttle Missions And Payloads – 1980 NASA Film

Time to go back to the early days of the Space Shuttle program. 1980, in this case, when the first flight was still in the middle of a variety of delays. The Space Shuttle was basically ready, but as luck would have it one thing after another kept the vehicle grounded until April 12th, 1981, …

Tying Up Loose Ends – An Update

clouds

I’ve mentioned before on how I have quite a few article sets that I have yet to finish. I’ve been known to come back to articles at random times, in some cases months between entries. As it stands now, though, I’m thinking I should try before the year is out to get the remainder of …

A Good Example Of People Missing The Point Entirely

In my previous article, where I discussed how a YouTuber got a play button award with a racist phrase written on it, the subject of the video the content creator had made, and thus the subject of my article itself, was the fact of how and why he could get the item with the inscription …

YouTube Automation, Chinese Factories, And A Racist Play Button

Talk about something coming out of nowhere, today I present you with a little insight into just how completely screwed up YouTube is.
