Great long read: "Noam Chomsky on Where Artificial Intelligence Went Wrong."

In the series of "Animals! They're just like us!" (they're not, but) apparently bored animals are a lot like bored humans: they pretty much lounge around in bed eating all day.

What it would look like if The Wizard Of Oz had been set in China… (it would look amazing is the answer).

Something different: here's a website called Pointer Pointer. Put your mouse pointer anywhere in the window and it will find a picture to match up with it where someone is pointing at it. Very strange.

An oldie but goodie link: the Origin of the Crossword Puzzle.

I tried to see if there was any trick to this video of an amazing kid playing pool but apparently it's in earnest? Heavens.

When all goes to junk you can either shut down and move on or declare yourself King of the Rats. The World's Worst Hotel chose the latter, and warns visitors not to sue before they arrive, because things are bad and they ain't changing a thing.
