And yes, it’s the 13th, which is lucky!!
And hey look! It’s video time! Hey look!
“A video where I demonstrate the late 1990s dial-up experience using near period-accurate hardware, connecting to modern websites using outdated browsers over a 31.2kbit/s dial-up connection.”
I’m old, so I remember this being very normal for a long, long time. This also highlights just how much data modern websites – and especially ad providers – are delivering just to present a single page to you. (It’s a lot!)
“Atolla is one of the most common residents of the ocean’s midnight zone. This deep-sea crown jelly is found worldwide and can be abundant in deep water. Its bell has a signature scarlet color and it has one tentacle that is much longer than the rest.”
Much more information here. Wow!
“We’re meeting Kylie Ferguson, who found the fossilized skull of a nimravid in Badlands National Park as a third grader. The nimravid is distantly related to the saber-toothed cat – but no less ferocious. Kylie revisits the skull she found years ago and learns that it contains all the makings of a 32-million-year-old murder mystery.”
This is a preview for the PBS series “Prehistoric Road Trip”.
Imagine being that young and actually discovering a real, and rare, fossil. Amazing.
Lovingly restoring – and using – a 100 year old manual ice cream maker.
Well there we go. Videos! Friday! Done!
Thanks for watching along at home all of you.
Have an amazing weekend.
