This is a short summary of some interesting things that caught our beady eye this week. All of these have serious implications… otherwise I’d not consider them, but this is simply a lighthearted look.

And lastly, my favourite cartoon for the week.
Thanks for reading, and see you next week. Please share this with all your friends, enemies, and those in between.
