As part of Netflix’s “Hack Day,” some of their engineers got together and figured out a way to watch their programming in 8-bits on a Nintendo Entertainment System.

Why? Why not?

From their description:

In a world… where devices proliferate… darNES digs back in time to provide Netflix access to the original Nintendo Entertainment System.

It’s not exactly the best way to watch “House of Cards,” especially since we recently learned thatSeason 3 was filmed in 6k.

Some of the other projects highlighted include software that displays dialogue on the pause screen,a program that beeps when you try to look away from the screen and an interactive globe that lets you see what people are watching all over the world.

The event is intended to be just for fun, and most of the stuff that emerged isn’t likely to be in the hands of a consumer anytime soon.

“Note that while we think these hacks are very cool and fun, they may never become part of the Netflix product, internal infrastructure, or otherwise be used beyond Hack Day,” writes Netflix on their blog. “We are surfacing them here publicly to share the spirit of the event.”

In light of the tragic events of May 20, 2013, when a massive tornado struck Moore, OK and killed at least 24 people, the Westboro Baptist Church, perpetually high in the standings for 'Worlds Biggest Scumbags,' made the website GodHatesOklahoma.com.

A hacker known only as The Jester wasn't having any of WBC's crap though. He stole the domain name right out of the church's hands, made the above image of Jesus flipping the birdy as the site's welcome screen, and redirects it after 5 seconds to this page.

Well done, Jester. Well. Done.
