Here is this week’s list of blog posts, poems, and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.
Back in the Shack via jdubqca. I really liked the imagery in this poem. It reminds me of the hikes my parents used to take with us when we were kids. We never found a shack like this one, but we did discover some pretty cool caves.
California Will be Bone Dry in a Year, NASA’s Top Water Scientist Predicts via Buffytuf. I expect their drought to raise U.S. food prices and possible lower the cost of (some) Californian real estate. It’s hard to live somewhere that doesn’t have water, after all.
Modern Curses. All of them would be incredibly annoying.
Rogue Wounds. I was fascinated by the stories in this article.
Google Feud. This game challenges you to guess what other people have googled. You’re given the beginning of the question or phrase and then have to provide the final word. It was a lot of fun.

Rather than prepare separate trays for inmates with high cholesterol or blood pressure, the kitchen serves low-sodium meals for the entire prison population.
