Pick a lie you like

That week went far quicker than could be accounted for; at least that is the thought here. Regardless, we have here plenty of things to make up for the gap in time. Lots of Halloween related links, of course and everything else. From breaking CAPTCHA to programming robots, horoscopes to cartoon maths, Lego-style phones to AR alternatives, life hacks to comments on porn videos, false identities to microscopic imagery, spying on the Brits to chaos theory, haunted paintings to period RPGs, video games without rules to breaking the rules of video games, football players to pop-up picture books, Steve Jobs to Ender’s Game, giant death storks to fighting like a gentleman.
