This isn’t worth the candy

So many things to read, so little time actually wanting to read them all. Yeah, first-world problems.

Jumping into it, we start with the new Steam controller. Then head into the world of interviews, bacteria, directories, horoscopes, alcohol, zombies, drugs, vendettas, liquid crystal, observatories, guns, advertising, selfies, packet sniffers, fishing boats, looking down from on high, smartwatches, teenagers, spaceships, labyrinths, libraries, and mashups. Finally everyone get’s lucky with the Russian Police! Enjoy:

Expect more comics and funnies in upcoming posts!

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. It’s all quite a mess; so dig in and enjoy:

Yeah, I’ve got an hour till raid

So, this is late again. Because reasons and bacon and frogs’ legs. And candy. Delicious candy.

Random stuff in here, from the past couple of weeks. Nothing much since has been that interesting. People spying on people like it’s a surprise, and the same old same old. Read through and tell us what is actually in here. It should be good.

Just going through these links quickly there’s a lot of funnies and less serious stuff.

Because yesterday she had her leg bitten off by a shark

And we’re back. Not on schedule, because that is something that will never happen, and everybody knows it. Instead we have a smattering of articles from the past few weeks. Breaking Bad and Wonder Woman, productivity and social media, massage and horoscopes, language and mathematics, drugs and card games, televisions and games, sphinxes and salamanders ducksand octopusses, oh my! This one contains almost everything, with a few obvious exceptions …

But first, some Bowie, but not for the usual reasons:

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.
