today I learned: skype lets police spy on chats (what a huge bummer). also, a woman was dubbed the ‘luckiest in the world’ for winning multi-million lotteries four times, but was later found to be a university professor with a statistics phd who cracked the system but has still not shared her secret. next, in 2006, NASA admitted that they no longer had the original video tapes of the moon landing because they recorded over them. hahaha. finally, continuum, a magazine focused on AIDS denialism, was shut down when all of its editors died…….from AIDS. oh, and because this one’s too good to leave out, halo was supposed to be turned into a feature film directed by neill blomkamp but fell through. instead, produce peter jackson went and offered blomkamp $30 million to make whatever he wanted- the result was district 9. NEAT.
