Did you survive the week? If you did, congratulations! If you didn't, you aren't reading this, so piss off.
This week bore witness to the visual orgasm that is the latest Dark Knight Rises trailer, Professor Kate Upton explains the etymology of feline paternis, Lego wigs, a psychopathic morality tale about subway etiquette, the best use of your lunch hour ever, and the existential musing of a Henri Le Chat.
Ready? Let's go!
Does this need any introduction? The conclusion of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy looks like it will be freakin' awesome. "Freakin' awesome" is the technical term, by the way.
We all feel, from time to time, the ennui and despair of the shallow, stagnant pond that is our lives. Henri Le Chat, being French, expresses this dull ache much more eloquently than we do.
Old people are always expecting us to bend over backwards to accommodate their excessive time on Earth. In this homage to Star Wars, Naruto, and etiquette, Sean Soong shows why we'd better just give these walking antiques what they want.(Source)
Why? Because it's awesome. (Source)
What's up with Sweden, eh? They write some of the most popular (if poorly edited) thrillers, they've started using a gender-neutral pronoun (hen), and now they flaunt their superior use of lunchtime in our overworked faces. Called 'lunch disco', these jiggy hours are organized by Lunch Beat, who have gone so far as to publish a Manifesto. Hardcore, hen. (Source)
