Last year, Ben Affleck was in a little movie called Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, a real film that makes absolutely no sense at any point ever. But out of misery comes joy in the form of a great meme: Sad Affleck.
Ben Affleck says that he’s learned a lot from working on a movie of that size and scope and with that kind of money and technology behind it. But more than anything, he learned not to stare off into the distance during interviews. Why? Because that’s how memes are born.
In this interview with BBC, Affleck responds to the “Sad Affleck” sensation:
“It taught me not to do interviews with Henry Cavill where I don’t say anything and they can lay Simon & Garfunkel tracks over it. That’s one thing I learned.”
From Sad Affleck to Smart Affleck.

The search for the real inventor of Bitcoin is over. According to the video description, the man in the video is the real deal:
Australian entrepreneur Craig Wright has publicly identified himself as Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto. His admission ends years of speculation about who came up with the original ideas underlying the digital cash system. Mr Wright has provided technical proof to back up his claim using coins known to be owned by Bitcoin's creator. Prominent members of the Bitcoin community and its core development team have also confirmed Mr Wright's claim.
Wright seems completely uninterested in fame or recognition. He gruffly insists that he wants to stay out of the spotlight, so why would he do an interview at all? His reasoning, in what he says will be his one and only interview, is to put an end to the controversy surrounding the identity of Bitcoin's inventor for the sake of his family and staff.
