Actually pretty interesting video on #Captcha and #recaptcha https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ppM_7-uTH14
Geraint Radford. Probably the best #macro #photography I've ever seen. Focuses on insects and mushrooms
Why do people check #corn for quality? They open them up and reject them if a tiny part is under-developed. Usually less than 10% and can just be cut off. An ear of corn costs around 0.25$US. That's pretty cheap, yet all that rejected corn is wasted. Usually tossed in the trash. #Foodwaste #Food #trash
Description of details in images from the James Web Telescope. Some are obvious but still interesting.
Amazing infrared #photography.
Looks like #china disappeared an internet celeb for having a cake in the vauge shape of a tank on Tiananmen Square Massacre's anniversary. No words of protest or even mention on Tiananmen, just a cake.
Hilarious short parodies for #gamers of various #RPG cliches
I think the best is "Baelin's Route - An Epic NPC Man Adventure", which is a bit longer
I've been reading a lot of #gamelit #litRPG and been seeing more new articles popping up about #AugmentedReality. So read up on the status of them. I expected to find semi-practical goggles and some sort of collective #AR universe that people could view and add to, like in many books. All ARs seem very localized, application specific and/or designed for phones only. Eyewear mostly too bulky or limited display capability. Really disappointing, i guess I'll have to wait another decade
Some interesting #photography using long exposures in non traditional ways
#JamesWebbSpaceTelescope is now mostly operational. First #photos, during a sharpness test https://www.esa.int/ESA_Multimedia/Images/2022/04/Webb_in_full_focus
