Here is this week’s list of comic strips, blog posts, etiquette guides, and other links from my favourite corners of the web.

Unwritten Rules of Public Transit Etiquette Written Down. This was one of the funniest things I’ve read in ages. The best part is, it was written about Toronto’s GO train!
The Legend of the Stone Snowman. The title gives away many details of what this comic strip is about. The final panel is quite funny, though.
The Psychology of Hunger. If you haven’t heard of The Minnesota Starvation Experiment, this article gives a nice overview of it. I can’t imagine volunteering for an experiment like this, but they did provide critical information about how starvation damages the body and why it’s so important to gradually reintroduce proper amounts of food to someone who has lived this way for a long time.
