Why didn’t you do the knock part?

So, this post is late. -Ish. Or something. To make up for this, it is huge. About fifty percent more than a regular post. There’s all sorts in here this time as well; 3d printing, lossiness, suns, pretty girls, ants, psychos, television, orcs, wizards, copycats, brains, phones, spiders, teeth, santas, predictions, buttons, dinosaurs, makeovers, holes, fairytales, doctors, food, chalk, gears, demons, diacritics, books, superheroes, consoles, airplanes, surfboards and ponies.

Plenty to keep you busy for an afternoon or two:

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.
