Did four AI robots kill 29 scientists at a Japanese weapons research lab? A tweet with that headline and a linked video briefly lit up social media for one week in December 2018. The mainstream media didn’t even bother to cover it, suggesting a possible government cover-up. Like most people who saw the story, I thought it was too sensational to be true. When I saw the thumbnail for the linked video, I knew it was fake news.Read more “Did 4 A.I. Robots Kill 29 Scientists At Japanese Weapons Research Lab?”
A new trailer for “Spider-Man: Far From Home” came this week. One of the big surprises was Nick Fury of S.H.I.E.L.D. replacing Tony Stark in the father figure role to a young Peter Parker. Since the story line for the new Spider-Man movie takes place just minutes after the ending of “The Avengers: Endgame,” that raises an interesting question. Who is the better spider-daddy, Tony Stark or Nick Fury?Read more “Who’s Your Daddy, Spider-Man?”
You have often heard stories or seen videos of Amazon packages being stolen from a porch by a random package thief walking off the street. That is nothing compared to what goes on inside an apartment complex. The porch is the doorstep to your apartment, the street is your building hallway, and that random package thief is most likely your next door neighbor. And packages disappear all the time.

Did you find it odd that Easter Sunday fell on April Fool’s Day in 2018?
Did you know that the last time this happened was in 1956?
Did you know that the next this will happen again is 2029?
While April Fool’s Day has a fixed date of April 1st of every year, the date for Easter Sunday changes from year to year. Most of the time Easter Sunday is the middle of April. Because Easter Sunday and April Fool’s Day fell on the same date, I wondered how often does something like this happens.Read more “How Often Does Easter Sunday Fall On April Fool’s Day?”
