Cool Shit 12/12

In case you want to keep an eye on the progress of artificial intelligence, this chart is a great place to start. Also, maybe practice unplugging stuff to get ready for the human/machines war.

Photography is hard, but once you get that shot you could sell it for millions.

The concept of the top 10 most secret US American military bases seems slightly oxymoronic.

With news of Serial wrapping up next week, there's going to be an outcry for more murder mysteries to follow. While I can't offer up any podcasts that are similar just yet, I can offer up some stories and bizarre mysteries that might sate your appetite. Start here with these 3 stories. Once you're finished with those, find out what it means to murder someone out in what's basically international waters (it happened). Once finished with those, head over to this Slate post that tackles the issue directly and crowdsourced some other mysteries you can dig into after next Thursday comes and goes.

Tomorrow is the last day for a sequential date this century; I guess we'll always have 12:34 to satiate our number OCDs. But what other dates should we be on the lookout for?

Any excitement for the Golden Globes other than the fact that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are coming back to host?

Leo DiCaprio is living the life he should be. I have no problem with that.
