Merry Christmas! You did it—you made it through another holiday filled with food, fun, cheer and family, and you did it all without committing a major felony or inflicting serious bodily harm to yourself or others (I hope). Good for you!
Today’s Friday Fun Blog is brought to you by Christmas. Are you at work? Why am I at work? Why is anyone doing anything today? Hopefully, you’re still in an eggnog haze and this will go by quickly.
On to the links!
–Toy Story turns 20 in 2015, and holy crap—has it been that long? Here’s 19 other movies that turn 20 years old this year, because there’s nothing like losing your innocence during the holiday season.
-A bunch of jerks decided to hack the online networks of PlayStation and Xbox, shutting down the services on Christmas (both online platforms are still offline as of this writing, by the way). Way to go, jerks. I hope you get a lump of coal retroactively.
-The NSA decided to release a list of all the ways they tracked you during the year, and they did it on Christmas Eve, in an attempt to make sure nobody reads it. Well, GUESS WHAT, NSA?! This guy read that list and I am not happy.
-Someone with a lot of time compiled a list of the 20 best games of 2014. You should play them. PLAY THEM NOW. Oh wait, nevermind—Xbox Live is down.
–Obligatory Space Post of the Week: Here’s the best images of Earth taken from space in 2014. I hope you looked good on the days they took these pictures—I know I did.
-What happens when an armored truck spills $4.5 million into the streets of Hong Kong? CHAOS. I can’t fault them, I’d be out there too. Don’t look at me like that, Christmas gifts are expensive!
-After a lot of deliberation, Sony Pictures finally released the controversial movie The Interview for download on YouTube and Google. You can purchase it for, like, $6 or something. Or, you could go the route of 750,000 people and download it illegally. The choice is yours.
That’s it for this week—have a great holiday and we’ll see you on Monday.
