I've seen a recent claim that adding a summary to links is enough of an inconvenience that the links may not be getting posted. I suppose people aren't checking out the media threads for links.
As an experiment, I'm posting this as a place for links. Summaries/excerpts are optional-- please don't downvote links just for not having excerpts/summaries.

A 2 minute youtube video

Also since explaining the video ruins it, here is a link to rot13

The number of times I've read an article about something like this that gives it away in the title or opening before giving the reader a chance to experience it for themselves... thanks for not explaining.

A "game over" screen from
the video game Balance of Power.
As seen on
Since the screen is just text, I'll go ahead and reproduce
the text here:
You have ignited a nuclear war.
And no, there is no animated display of a mushroom cloud
with parts of bodies flying through the air.
We do not reward failure.

I can't see a reason as to why this would be a better place for posting links than the Open Thread.

I think the norm of sweeping everything into the Open Thread has painted the community into a corner. Let's start posting Discussion posts again even if we're not sure it's a good idea.
