Meet the devs who made games you can play in your address bar

quote [ Some developers self-impose extreme limitations on themselves by making games that you can only play in your browser's address bar. We asked the how and the why ]

So if no longer bees, be it bars.

How secret languages thrive behind bars

quote [ Both he and Kearse described prison language as an extension of hip-hop, sharing some of the same words and being similarly stylized and creative. “It’s that same spirit, same desire to play with words,” said Reilly. “There’s so much creativity in there, and wit.” ]

Interesting views on language and rhyme.

Why The US Has No High-Speed Rail

quote [ the U.S. has no true high-speed trains, aside from sections of Amtrak’s Acela line in the Northeast Corridor. The Acela can reach 150 mph for only 34 miles of its 457-mile span. Its average speed between New York and Boston is about 65 mph. ]

That was interesting. The history of wrecking cable cars and getting politically fixated on prestigious tech is common in other countries as well.

It's a followup, BTW.

Middle-Aged Moralists

quote [ Why should we turn outward? Not in order to avoid becoming scoundrels, Wallace says, but because such other-directedness can bring us freedom. ]

Not a huge fan of D.F.W., but putting hipster priests in perspective is a nice touch.

How YouTube Became a Breeding Groundfor a Diabolical Lizard Cult

quote [ When a killer blames her act on a cult of YouTube addicts, who believe a race of aliens are psychically subjugating humanity, questions of criminal capacity and soundness of mind inevitably rise. ]

Getting poorer while working harder: The 'cliff effect'

quote [ This complicated and frustrating challenge is just one symptom of an overarching problem. In addition to boosting wages, it will take major policy changes, like making child care more universally available and affordable, to offset the skyrocketing costs of living for American workers. ]

Is it getting hot or what?
