  • Biking in for the first time in two weeks, had to stop at a store to buy a hexhead for emergency repairs- my handlebars somehow loosened! #
  • Raid fail. #
  • Downloading firmware. Might not be done until tomorrow. #


Unlike the new Transformers movie, this video has neither gigantic robot testicles or offensive racial stereotypes. That either makes it three times better or three times worse than the actual movie, depending on the audience. One thing we can all agree on, at least, is that it is two hundred and four times shorter*.

*: I would say this makes it over two hundred times more worth your time, but that is probably not a universal truth.

Happy Birthday


I think I will link to this post whenever I want to wish someone happy birthday. That doesn’t make the wish less special, it would just be impossible to replicate the supreme apropos quality of this video.

The fun actually gets started at 0:23, so I start playback there. Before that, the intro is just the words, “Robots Sing Happy Birthday to Celebrate London Science Museum’s 100th Anniversary”. How long does it take to read eleven words? Eighteen seconds!
