the. effing. future.

I just ordered a new pair of spectacles from the internet. Plug in the prescription and go. And now, comes the improtant part. I spent 50 bucks (including shipping and a sunglass clippy bit). In the past I’d have to spend 4 hours at the shop with their limited selection and wind up spending $300.

And here’s the best part–the pair of $50 glasses I’ve been wearing for the past two years have held up much better than the junk I was spending 300 bucks on before I came to this revelation. No more having to go in the get the lenses replaced every 6 months because the high index layers were flaking off.

I don’t have a flying car, but I can order pizza and glasses off the internet. The future is still alright.

Did I post this before?

Well, If I did and you didn’t turn it on, you should. It’s pretty much the best mixtape ever. Been listening to it over and over for the past couple months…

It really works!

SpaceX did a successful soft landing into the ocean with their first stage on the last mission. Can you feel THE FUTURE coming?

An interview with Matt Chapman, one of the The Brother Chaps behind Homestar Runner. It’s a pretty awesome look at a pretty awesome thing, (my most favorite internet thing through middle and high school), and very interesting look at the birth of internet animation, pre-youtube.

Goals

From the video description:

“SpaceX has completed qualification testing for the SuperDraco thruster, an engine that will power the Dragon spacecraft’s launch escape system and enable the vehicle to land propulsively on Earth or another planet with pinpoint accuracy.

The SuperDraco is an advanced version of the Draco engines currently used by SpaceX’s Dragon spacecraft to maneuver in orbit and during re-entry. SuperDracos will be used on the crew version of the Dragon spacecraft as part of the vehicle’s launch escape system; they will also enable propulsive landing on land. Each SuperDraco produces 16,000 pounds of thrust and can be restarted multiple times if necessary. In addition, the engines have the ability to deep throttle, providing astronauts with precise control and enormous power.”

In other words, SpaceX is saying “Fuck you, parachutes, who needs you?” and “Mars–we’re coming for ya!”

I love it.
