Why does Jack Nicholson repeatedly break the fourth wall in The Shining?

SMBC: Genius.


Brodie Robertson: The truth behind Ballmer’s “Linux is a cancer” quote. Or if you prefer reading, a Reddit or Quora on the topic.


Ted Chiang: What’s expected of us, and a recent interview by FT about AI.


Frost / Cold Take: The current state of online multiplayer games is embarrassing.
