  1. Will and Adam talking about a dog’s memory span reminded me of a classic bit that George Carlin did ages ago on the subject. Adam might have even been channeling it to some extent.

  2. Adam that looks like a “Ginger Beer”. Have you tried Goslings Ginger Beer? In my opinion it is my top favorite Ginger thing.

  3. If you liked Free Fire, you should maybe check out Ben Wheatley’s other films. None of them are family friendly in the slightest, but they are all interesting and tense nail-biters. Sightseers, Kill List, A Field In England, and High-Rise (adapted from the JG Ballard book!) are all very different from each other, but excellent films all the same.

  4. When pilot/adventurer’s Steve Fossett’s plane went missing they used crowd sourced image based searches similar to the one mentioned by Adam. They used a tool, Amazon’s Mechanical Turk, to break up the images and deliver them to large groups to review. An obvious extension of that into new fields, very interesting. I would imagine it could be done with everything from slide reviews of tissue looking for disease, or DNA for defects. Interesting stuff.
