A vacation based proof of the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics

It's a well known fact that whenever you go on holiday your home town experiences once-in-a-generation levels of good weather while you sit inside with increasingly insane children watching unseasonably torrential rain.

As this is a universal experience it has to be more than bad luck.

Every time anyone takes a vacation a parallel universe must be created where the traveler inflicts stormy weather on one branch and summer continues as normal on the other.

Hope for Hulu?

Updated on Wednesday, February 22, 2017

Hope for Hulu?

Probably not.

I tore into Hulu last year for the miserable user experience, dreary ads and vanishing content.

Back then I estimated that Hulu could ditch the ads for another $6 a month. TechCrunch is reporting today (via the Wall Street Journal) that Hulu is considering an ad free tier for $12-$14 a month. $14 would be a $6 bump over current pricing. If they can fix the UX as well I'll be back in. And I still want my OTT TiVo.
