A weekly-ish email to my internet friends



Spiders! Cheese! Cars! Tweets!

Hello internet friends,

annoyed that it is Monday already? Well, you’re probably less annoyed than these rattlesnakes being pestered with a drone.

Web Content

We humans have a brain (usually) and a spine (some) and that’s how we think and handle the various parts of our body. But not every animal works like this – so, for example, how do spiders and octopuses think? The Thoughts of a Spiderweb

Cheese Content

Living just over the boarder from Switzerland, their various cheese dishes – mostly fondue and raclette – were a very normal part of my upbringing. And given that “melting cheese” is one of the great culinary achievements it is important to know The Science of Melting Cheese.

Car Content

In this case actual literal car content: Singapore ‘vending machine’ dispenses Ferraris, Lamborghinis.
I know this concept with Smart cars over here, but… wow. (Unrelated: the movie adaptation of Crazy Rich Asians is currently filming.)

Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o Content

I really like everything about this: A meme come true: Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o to star in film based on tweet
Tweet-to-Netflix is the content version of Farm-to-Table, right?

Now go outside, have a drink.
