IC 23: Is This A Meme?

Forget Yanny or Laurel, we found a sound debate that’s even weirder. Plus, Reddit’s seeing huge design changes and Michael’s asking about the meme that’s the new hotness. Gaming Corner has some classic RPGs and a single-player farming simulator. In our altered Good Internet, Bad Internet, some lawful Good Internet, Boston Dynamics is creating our imminent cyborg dystopia, and a subreddit and thread that are weird and disturbing.
