not what I expected
 
Are plant-based diets environmentally friendly?

"A nutritious diet that includes lots of fruits and vegetables might not be the greenest in its environmental impact, according to a new study from France.

After analyzing the eating habits of about 2,000 French adults, and the greenhouse gas emissions generated by producing the plants, fish, meat, fowl and other ingredients, researchers concluded that widely embraced goals for the health of people and for the health of the planet are not necessarily perfectly compatible.

Growing fruit and vegetables doesn't produce as much greenhouse gas as raising cattle or livestock, the study confirms, but people who eat a primarily plant-based diet make up for that by eating more of those foods."

This looks like my kinda game. I haven't tried it yet, but it seems like it might have been a better fit for tablets...

Spelunky looks very cool, though could be frustrating. I'll check it out.

It's #browser magic time. Turn any (presumably recent) browser into a notepad.
I had no idea this was possible.

Installed #windows8   on the home PC. Was pleasantly surprised that everyone in the house seems happy with it, nobody was confused by the changes. And the Fresh Paint app is a big hit.

(not sure who to credit for creating the funny part about Pluto)
