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:

Haha, no, but I can take a picture of you

Bit late this time around perhaps, though as penance there is a lot here. Plenty to read and laugh at and so on. A wide selection of topics ranges from the Big Bang [not the television show] to Popes, Irishmen to famous authors, life after death to life before death [or horoscopes], game consoles to new games, remote controls to digital invisibility, virtual reality to augemented reality, hotels to theft, hearing to instant messaging. So jump in and enjoy:

And just something on keeping secrets:

Do you like donuts?

Well, that’s enough of a break. Time for the New Year and recovering from the celebrations. There’s been a lot of nothing for a while, probably because of that celebratory period, but things are beginning to flood back in again.

Leading the list of items two weeks old or less today is virtual reality, closely followed by creepypasta. Also included for your pleasure are things like webcomics[!], country music, life reflections, shoes, facts, glitter nail polish, outer space, coffee flavoured beer, images of earth, genuine fakes, women’s rowing, broken things, wierd passwords, Orwell and facial recognition and, of course, the obligatory stuff about Christmas and stuff about New Year’s. Jump in:

And something semi-relevant to finish it all off:

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:

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:
