The wild and hilarious speculation leading up to the announcement 2. The terror of giving those first speechesAmazing to think we unveiled @ArtPrize exactly 5 years ago today. https://t.co/BaX8byz2iq What a morning that was.
An almost unrecognizable time and place.

Why do your children's beds not have headboards? Is this a rule?The importance of the blockchain: http://t.co/XovVl3fEmHInteresting little writeup on Kind Bars, which happen to be freaking delicious: http://t.co/SYgY4n7wlUWow.

A teenager casually hops a fence and stows away in an aircraft wheel well. Why do we, as pax, put up with ever-increasing security theater?@KevinBuist Not sure about the wheel well itself and if it's near hot components, but the outside temp is easily -30.This story of a kid riding (& surviving) in the wheel well of a plane from CA to Hawaii is insane on multiple levels: http://t.co/ojvWvZCvjq"The only thing preventing a catastrophe from a 'city-killer' sized asteroid is blind luck." http://t.co/SuzyHnWsaV h/t @RickDeVos

Interesting little personal study examining lane-switching vs. staying in your lane when caught in stop & go traffic: http://t.co/zPsCAqQs5v@MikeLichterman it's just the history of how the land was settled and apportioned.@brianburch And more of it should be sold. At the VERY least it should be managed by the individual states.Nevada is basically entirely owned by the federal government. Amazing how how much of California is owned as well. http://t.co/cO6dKbXDW2It's high time for this type of discussion: http://t.co/pkzNVGaAnK Especially once you look at this crazy map: http://t.co/jglAp981QG"What it probably won’t do is help anyone with genuine intellectual curiosity 'understand the news' any better." http://t.co/x7OW34TRvR
