I spend most of my time thinking about one of two frightening things: how I could have had more fun in college, and what will happen when there’s a nuclear attack against the United States. (And I do believe it will happen in my lifetime.) Nuclear war and nuclear terrorism are just about the scariest things in the…
I decided to stop squatting on my own namesake domain and put a little landing page on SamBiddle.com. There’s not much there now, but I’ll update it now and then with my favorite stories (by me, a little vain I guess, but it is a homepage...) and general biographical info. Let me know what you think, or if it sucks.
Jesus Christ. Was this the best year of my life? Yes—and I know that’s true because of all this horse shit I bought for myself on Amazon’s website. “You can tell a story by reading the lines in a log,” the old pioneer once said, and that’s still true, but with Prime Membership items instead.
As soon as Gizmodo began its investigation into evidence that shows Craig Wright, an Australian academic and serial entrepreneur, claimed to have invented Bitcoin, he started to cover his tracks. After Gizmodo and Wired published separate stories yesterday, Wright’s digital existence has almost completely vanished.
College kids are dumb, as the saying goes, but with YouTube we can now see just how dumb they are. If you’re standing in the middle of a public square, clamoring for attention, you’re not allowed to get pissed when that attention arrives.
Last night I was at the gym, going through that old sham, leg-walloping the elliptical, sweating big ol’ bullets and watching an episode of Seinfeld on the crummy LCD (I usually watch Food Network but I realized how bleak that looks to others). It was then that I realized I was there to look like him.

A video file by the name of snakefucker.mp4 is making its way around Twitter today. As you can guess by its name, it's a video of a man apparently fucking a snake. If you want to watch the video—which, let's be clear, depicts what is almost certainly an illegal act of animal abuse—it is located here. If you don't want…
There year is over, let's take inventory on all this eCommerce. What was good? What was worth it? Find out here, and only here.
If you live in the blizzard-ridden United States, you might be looking out your window at a harsh, desolate, snowy wasteland. Cars in the middle of the street. Frosty despair. But you're also hungry. Here's how to order in, guilt-free.
Sometimes you should give people the benefit of the doubt when they're accused of something bad. But when they have a history of doing that bad thing—or in Paul Graham's case, blogging it over the span of a decade—no dice. If you search PG's website for "women," it speaks for itself:
Josh Tetrick is a Silicon Valley startup CEO, but eased admiration out of me as soon as we first talked on the phone earlier this year. Tetrick isn't making an app or a service to pick up your dirty clothes—he thinks the way we eat has some serious problems, and he thinks he can fix those problems. I think he probably…
After a spate of recently-hacked phone nudes, it's clear our advice to never shoot pictures of your own junk isn't going to catch on. So if you're going to do it, at least do it well. Here's how to make your naked shots shine.

Dubai's Burj Khalifa skyscraper is a lot of things: a testament to humankind's love of building humungous stuff for the hell of it. It's very shiny! And in a bad storm, it sounds like it's about to fall apart.
