Wednesday Walk Around the Web – 04/09/2014


Welcome to the Wednesday Walk Around the Web, where we weave & wind through weblinks weekly. Here you may find some things that amuse, some that titillate, and the occasional link that provokes. Do you have a link you want to see featured in next week’s Wednesday Walk? Email Glenn!

  • You may be able to treat depression with special K. But don’t hold your breath.
  • One intrepid researcher took it upon himself to experimentally verify the worst places on your body to get stung by a bee. They’re what you’d expect, but the man’s dedication is amazing. (Warning: huge picture of a bee up top.)
  • Someone please come and replace my floors with Escher-inspired iguana tiling.
  • You can do quite a lot with rotoscoped sticks.
  • There’s a real-life group of vigilante heroes, and they’re thousands of women in India.
  • If you’re looking for a hopping coffee place in Seoul, try Dunkin Donuts.
  • Do you have a lot of apples to peel? Try a power drill! It’s neat how many culinary tasks can be made better with power tools.
  • Get maximum crust on your burger. Think you have enough crust? You do not have enough crust. Make a burger that is 100% crust. It’s the right time to get crust.
  • This Week in Magnified Images: vinyl records.
  • A British couple invited Queen Elizabeth to their wedding almost as a prank, and then she showed up.
  • Get on board with slow TV before this rocket really takes off. Netflix’s Yule Log was a particularly convenient background element this past December.
