Hollywood has a retirement home for cast and crew members, and it has its own TV channel with original programming by and for the residents. (This is a really great story, I highly recommend it.) 

Remember the attempt at combining board games with VCR tapes? It didn’t really go too well, and Tedium explores why. 

More AI weirdness: Here are some “common objects” as imagined by an AI network. It’s very good at dogs! Not so much with clocks or people, although the clocks look like something out of an amazing steampunk movie.

There are hundreds of gorgeous miniatures depicting Islamic science. Most of these are modern fakes. Why? Well, it’s a long story.
