TIL: Amazon is developing a Lord of the Rings show!

Get ready for sound-blasting screens

He doesn't upload it often, but when he does, a new Captain Disillusion video is always a very cool watch. This time the Captain debunks the debunkers of a popular example of laminar flow: Laminar flow disambiguation.

It is here: the full frame mirrorless digital camera for the enthusiastic amateur. At $1299 it is the most affordable full frame camera yet, and that price is the coolest spec about it.
