Even empty space has vaccuum energy

Sometimes the days fly by, other times they seem to drag on an on. Can’t be too sure which it has been lately around here; time is fluid and not prone to stability.

Today’s links move between technology and everything else and back again quite a lot. Between children’s television and fighting games, you’ll find wireless technology, satellite photography, new MOBA games, wireless warriors, nail polish, GPS 25th anniversary, sand art, horoscopes and more horoscopes, cosplay, gamer racing drivers, avoiding censorship, emotion recognition, thoughts on the future from the past, musical FPS, nuclear fusion, crazy objects in the third dimension, and bouts of humour scattered in large clumps. So jump in and enjoy it all:

I dunno … the 70s maybe?

Well, this should have been posted days ago. For some reason it wasn’t and instead you get this minor trip back in time. It does include lots of webcomics and humour as promised last time though, so that’s something.

As to what’s contained herein, I’ve no real idea anymore. There is a large alphabeticised list of tags down the bottom, maybe that will help you sort out what is what. But there is plenty, and lots of fun little bits as well. Just a heads up, there’s two links as part of the first one, so enjoy the surfing:

Deduct a point from the effort gauge

Another strange week. Food appears to be a pretty strong theme this time around, with a spattering of news, music, science and art to round it out.

We’ll start with a thermometer tattoo, and move onto vinyl records and death games; search engine privacy, WHOIS lookup privacy, butterflies and wasps, hysterical photos, phones, the art of observation, repurposed coastal defences, insects and umami, why people are leaving Facebook, Grand Theft Auto V is released, lolita costuming, horoscopes and flying drones, something called a ‘swarm economy’, the internet of things and machines of death, the generation gap, and finishing up with the favoured burger of Hemingway.
