XKCD Alt(ernate reality) Title Tag 2020 edition
title="As the 'exotic animals in homemade aprons hosting baking shows' YouTube craze reached its peak in March 2020, Andrew Cuomo announced he was replacing the Statue of Liberty with a bronze pangolin in a chef's hat.”

Zooming into a ballpoint pen tip like there’s no zooming-tomorrow.
Mall Grab – Boiler Room Set from Isolation #2
Even though it was recorded during the day, perfect set for some computer work in the dark.
Jet Pilot – All The Jet Planes!
Amazing shots, this was not special effects, they just did it.
To be honest, I have had the pleasure of watching this cold war classic. But they sure have some immersive footage in there. I guess a John Wayne credit makes you so American, they give you all the footage.
Pigs in Space
While I have heard the Pigs in Space / Schweine im Weltall thing so many times, I do not recall ever seeing it in recent times. So, when it showed up in my feed, I did have a look.
Very disturbing. …Doctor Strangepork, really?
1.8 Billion Pixel Mars Panorama
You can have a look at the pano at the NASA site.
Kraftwerk in Canada
Watching an awesome Kraftwerk live performance on youtube? Don’t mind if I do!
Cable Binder Art
Montreal based artist Elisabeth Picard makes visually stunning lighting art pieces with colored cable binders. The below somehow reminds me of the (movie/)show Stargate’s effeect for the Stargate opening.
Rainbow Mountains is also especially amazing, but you should really check them all out.
A history of the Flowbee
A wonderfully weird TV advertising thing from the nightly television advertising loop.
Somehow this device really did make it into “pop culture”.
