So, this month's issue of Nintendo Force magazine has a poster about Mario vs Sonic at the Rio Games. And while I like a lot of the things in it - Princesses Sally and Peach, Yoshi at the high jump, and Toejam & Earl being... Toejam & Earl, I think I died laughing with Shadow doing skeet shooting.

+Gretchen Sher recently linked a piece of Gurihiru art. I hadn't heard of them, so I looked them up. Apparently, among just about every other piece of artwork in the world, team Gurihiru did the art for the Star Wars Japanese-English Dictionary. The book itself looks more like Star Wars as drawn by Richard Scarry.

Just look at it!
This is the Star Wars English-Japanese Dictionary Jedi Knight Edition. It is aimed at Japanese people studying English. We did about 350 piece artwork in this book.

It's preliminary research being reported in the media, so take it with a grain of salt.

But on the face of it, it seems commonsense: inflation isn't an interest rate, it's the measurement of a trendline of a bunch of data points. So if you subdivide those data points in different ways - household income, household size, race, state, etc. - you should find different interest rates for different groups.

Mark this one up as "data porn" and look forwards to seeing the results of the research later.
 
A study that comes as a surprise only to people who aren't poor. :( (via private share)

No matter what you think about the new Ghostbusters - whether it'll be good, whether it'll be bad, or whether the jury's still out - we can all thank Sony for making one before Adam Sandler could get the rights.

The other day I was flipping through Catcher in the Rye, and after a few pages I realized that the narrator in my head was Louis CK. Which, as I kept reading, turned out to be kind of perfect.So,
