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. Emjoy:

You have a body, like Adonis

So there’s quite a few technology and internet articles in here and a larger than normal number of links to movie and television stuff. Two doctors make an appearance – Who and Doctor[ow], the seedier side of the interwebs gets a run down, malware detection for mobiles, everyone’s favourite “WW”, VR making people sick, stupid theives, maps that never happened and maps that correlate the unrelatable, Cookie Monster wants it, advice for artists and role players, warehouses and horoscopes, a song of meat and vegies, the original jpg girl, baking companies going ironic, pictures from space, Bitcoins, bunked scientific theories, getting lucky in your underwear, copyright vigilantism, the return of Omni, cutting up time and some tomfoolery from the AVN Expo, last year. Yeah, I know, it’s late.

Hurry up and jump in:
