    Chronicles of the Dark Web Vol.1

    Chronicles of the Dark Web Vol.1

    Halloween and spooky season may have just ended, but it only felt right to sneak one last spine-chilling tale in before we all shift gears toward more light-hearted holiday fare. What if I told you this episode doesn't just contain one dark tale, but four??! Oh, and I even tossed a crackling fire in the background audio to really complete the "scary stories around the campfire" feel!

    This episode marks the beginning of an occasional series I will update over the years called "Chronicles of the Dark Web". Expect dark and twisted tales claiming to stem from the Dark Web, with my color commentary and dissection of the stories! Are these horrendous stories true, or merely the works of a creative mind karma-farming on Reddit? Only one way to find out. Let's get strange.

    Saddam's Playstation 2 Stockpile / Post-Apocalyptic Aladdin

    Saddam's Playstation 2 Stockpile / Post-Apocalyptic Aladdin

    In a short and sweet episode this week, I kick back and talk about an old rumor that went around in the early 2000s, involving Saddam Hussein stockpiling Playstation 2 consoles for military use. I also discuss some really cool technical moments for Sony consoles, and even try to ruin your childhood just a little bit by introducing you to a weird theory involving Disney's Aladdin from 1992. Let's get strange!
