Meet the man who invented the emoticon ... in 1879 In 1982, computer scientist Scott Fahlman became the first person to suggest that typing the characters ":-)" or ":-(" could be used to express a happy or sad face, and therefore display a sense of emotion. On that fateful day the now-ubiquitous emoticon was born, but that shorthand we now know and love (or loathe, depending on your point of view) actually started more than a century earlier, when communicating long distances meant using a lot of dots and dashes. In the late 19th century, just about the only way to quickly send a message over long distances was by using the telegraph. These then-innovative devices used Morse code to translate text into long and short beeps (dashes and dots), which were received and retranslated back into text on the other side. Telegraphs sped up world communications in the late 1800s — they were much faster than mailed letters, after all — but they had a few key drawbacks. They were expensive (each letter mattered) and they still took time to transmit.

Ancient d20 die emerges from the ashes of time | Crave Let's go back in time. Way back. Keep going. OK, stop. You're in the Ptolemaic Period. It's somewhere around 304 to 30 B.C. The Metropolitan Museum of Art owns what may be the world's oldest d20 die. The die is a little over an inch tall. The symbols for eta, theta, and epsilon can be clearly seen. (Via io9) 15 Bogeymen From Around The World Creepy The bogeyman is a legendary ghost-like monster. The bogeyman has no specific appearance and conceptions of the monster can vary drastically even from household to household within the same community; in many cases he simply has no set appearance in the mind of a child, but is just an amorphous embodiment of terror. The Namahage visits each house on New Year’s to ask if any misbehaving children live there. The Korean bogeyman is called Kotgahm, which is the word for persimmon. Duérmete, niño, duérmete ya. If you think of a coconut as a head, with the three holes the features of a face, you can see how El Coco might be transformed in the mind of a child to a hairy little man. One of the most unusual of the world’s bogeys is Groke, a giant blue blob who is so lonely and sad that the ground beneath her feet freezes as she walks. There are many theories about the origin of the word “bogeyman.” The boggart is a malicious fairy who causes personal calamities, small and large.

You never are until at least your second cup of coffee, and this is only your first. You're having a hard time getting your eyes to focus. But it certainly looks like there's a man in your front yard, crouched down on all fours, gnawing at a leg. A human leg. The man gnawing on the human leg suddenly stops chewing, as though some sound disturbs him. You've heard about the outbreak in Millbury, of course. But it seems the newscasters were at least a little right, because there's a zombie chowing down on a human leg in your front yard. Shit.
