Weekend Update

“No, it wasn’t an accident, I didn’t say that. It was carefully planned, down to the tiniest mechanical and emotional detail. But it was a mistake.” 
― John Paxton, On the Beach (1959)

It’s hard to convey how much I stress about when to publish the weekend links post these days because I know the moment I do, something newsworthy will happen.

Like Hawaii sending a false alarm nuclear attack warning to the population. By mistake. It took three quarters of an hour to clear the misinformation up, about the same time it would apparently take for an actual missile from the Korean Peninsula to hit.

If we don’t actually get tweeted or accidentally stumble into a war at some point this year, the stress may yet end us all.
