Again, real life has interfered with my ability to blog. But dutifully, I still bring you links on which to click.
- Writing for Midnight Resistance, Dan Douglas explains how gaming helped him recover after a psychotic breakdown.
- Richard Gray of The Telegraph reports on research by Dr. Robert Ritchie of the University of California Berkeley. A species of arapaima, a type of fish, has scales that are resistant to piranha bites. By developing artificial materials that have a similar structure to those scales, scientists may be able to create better armour. Neato!
- Gary Martin of Fstoppers has an interview with photographer Michael Paul Smith, who uses diecast models and forced perspective to create the illusion of photographs from bygone eras.
- Rachel P. and A.C. Grimes of Cracked have a list of failed attempts at political correctness, some of which ended up being spectacularly offensive.
- Over at The Impotence of Being Earnest, a very funny rant about hummus.
- Finally, this week’s Jimquisition about toxicity in the gaming industry is a must-see. (Courtesy of Jim Sterling of The Escapist.)
That’s it for this week. See you next week.
