TwitterFacebook

If you’ve ever seen Robert Downey Jr. in person, you know the man does not suffer a fool’s fashion gladly.

Always dashing, futuristic, cosmopolitan — chunky sunglasses you can sorta see through, structured collars and footwear that’s probably worth your salary — the real-life Tony Stark likes to dress like the on-screen Tony Stark. Which is to say, expensively.

So when photos from the Atlanta set of Avengers: Infinity War went online Monday, we had questions. Something wasn’t quite right about this: Read more…

Someone found an incredibly creative way of sorting Lego bricks using AI

TwitterFacebook

For parents, children, and Lego aficionados everywhere, it’s a good day to be alive.

Everyone loves to build with Lego bricks, but no one likes the cleanup — so using AI technology, Jacques Mattheij, a tech-savvy Lego-lover since childhood, found a way to make sorting Lego pieces fun and simple.

In a blog post, Mattheij told the tale of how he came to own two metric tons (more than 4,000 pounds) of the colorful bricks, which ultimately inspired him to build an automated Lego sorter. So with some “python code and a bunch of hardware to handle the parts,” Mattheij set forth on his journey to sort and ensure the beloved mini-figs get a home of their own. Read more…

‘Preacher’ Season 2 premiere proves the Saint of Killers ain’t messing around

TwitterFacebook

This post contains spoilers for the Preacher Season 2 premiere, titled “On the Road.”

No series blends style, action, and humor quite like Preacher, which is perhaps the purest embodiment of a comic book we’ve ever had on the small screen.

Executive producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, along with showrunner Sam Catlin, have distilled everything that made Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s graphic novels so iconic into a shot of live-action adrenaline, and while Season 1 had its speed bumps, taking the show on the road in Season 2 has kicked Preacher into high gear right out of the gate.

I Just Want a Fair Price: 2 (Additional) Things to Take Into Consideration when You Buy or Sell Your Home

If you know a little bit about property, you will know this: a lot of things affect the price of properties. You already know some of them: location, amenities, condition, neighbourhood, accessibility, timing – things like that. In property buying and selling, (obviously) it will be in the seller’s best interest to sell the property at a higher price for bigger profit, and it will be in the buyer’s best interest to purchase the property at a lower price for a smaller mortgage. So how does one get a fair price (or close to it) that will satisfy both the seller and the buyer? Here are 2 additional things to take into consideration if you want a fair price when you buy or sell your home. ‘Fair’ is Subjective Homeowners will always wear rose-tinted glasses when they look at their properties.

They spent a lot of money over the years for maintenance and fixing numerous wears and tears.  They have had immeasurable happy memories in every nook and corner. In short, homeowners will tend to think that their property is worth a lot […]
