But I don’t need you to rescue me.

It’s not quite a week now, but here we are with an exorbitant number of links for people to preemptively ignore. This is not normal. Well, the ignoring is, but what can you do?

As we apparently went a little overboard there are links covering all sorts of things: more Raspberry Pi home projects, internet catasrophes, plenty of artworks and installations, internet manifestos, politics of gaming, computer trading, horoscopes as always, advice from famous people, spiders[!], lots of webcomics and funnies, working three dimensional vision, poor virtual reality, mobile gaming, political divisions, hackers and legal cases, Scandinavia getting personal, anatomies and histories, the benefits of space exploration, and finishing off with something about useful real world surveillance. Jump in, eat up and enjoy:

This creature dies too easily.

Back once more with lots of look over — with apparently most of it technology related. Lots of futurific things to think about and look forward to.

Along with the usual humour and horoscopes, this post is filled up with Bioshock fish, the most expensive video games around, ancient erotica, Powerpuff more-than-Girls, the oddest cover ever, psycho jeans, Hearthstone, smart wear coming soon, Writer’s Block, net neutrality, sea cows, prescient selling, virtual bodies, technological sheep, Orwell reaching out from the ether, fake online identities, shoes that track you, fake metro signs, micro computers, fake spiders, issues with fandom and finishing up with asteroids. First though, dive into glass related shenanigans:

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:

That was perhaps a little excessive. Bonus internet points if you can point to any link that wasn’t referenced at the start!

Requesting permission to engage, over

It has been a strange week on the home front. So rather than delving into that, we’re going to jump right into what’s collected here. Hopefully it’s not too heavy.

There’s loads about the NSA, which up until now has been avoided as a topic of discussion, but it’s everywhere of late, so the smarter side of it is here also. A couple of music videos, some things about games — virtual and tabletop, horoscopes, a couple of anomalies in the natural world, how glass measures up in nature, something about translators, the questions a slave gets asked by modern people, Monty Python Lego sets, ornithopters that actually work, optical illusions, a Lord of the Flies scenario, the rush to create secure email, a video about a fox, and a nice little finisher with job applications with a twist. First up though is an artist’s collaboration with her daughter:

Nature is a toxin, hope is a lie

There’s always the intention of posting more regularly, of making sure something is up every couple of days. And then sometimes it just doesn’t happen. Weird.

Today there’s rather a lot, but all of it fun. All mixed together are life lessons, a movie about Daria, clients being horrible, stuff famous people like Neil Gaiman, Warren Ellis and Bruce Sterling, and things about Steve Jobs, pentameter and Twitter, horoscopes, a song from the Doubleclicks, a lost and found product, automatic homes, sex and porn, Batman and it finishes off with pretty [ugly] spiders. To start us off today though, here’s things people wish were real from video games:

Also, for reference, here are the horoscopes that were missed from last week, because reasons …
