Google Fiber Rollout Becomes Real

Like many bandwidth-starved American nerds, I’ve been following the rollout of high-speed fiber-optic networks across the United States relatively closely. These networks are generally designed to be scalable long into the future, offering increased bandwidth as optics technology improves and demand rises. However, the data shows that the demand for faster networks in the United States already exists. And while this county has the world’s largest economy, it seems as though we truly are behind the curve if the Google-powered fiber-optic broadband network launched in Kansas City, Missouri has turned so many heads.

Top 10 Pieces of Video Evidence of Ghosts

Last year I wrote a top ten list of reasons why ghosts don’t exist. In my opinion, all of the logic I used in that post is sound. But this year I decided to dig into the opposing viewpoint. Let’s assume it was even remotely possible to have real evidence of something that doesn’t exist. And let’s further assume that we live in a world where there’s an overwhelming amount of that sort of evidence. Specifically, video evidence that ghosts do exist. If we lived in that world, what would the best examples be? Here are ten of them.

Perhaps it wasn’t the best choice for Halloween, but that’s neither here nor there. Summarized: a previously unknown celestial body crosses the orbit of our planet and makes people feel very existential.
