Linkables 30/4/8

I never realised there was so much correlation between the words 'fuck' and 'bitch'...

The title of the article says it all, seriously freaking creepy potential anti-rape adverts. And here's an analysis of the images for good measure.

You don't have to become an alcoholic for alcohol to ruin your life.

Via an interesting ask.metafilter question about language, an analysis of why Chinese is so hard to learn.

Hey, you know that whole diet coke and mentos thing? What if we like, got lots of people to do it at once? That'd be really freaking cool, right? Right.

A few really interesting flash games:

  • Qink, in which you need to cover a 2D representation of a cube with colours. The rotation weirdness gets annoying after a while, but it's a really interesting exercise in spatial thinking. [review]
  • Scorching Earth, in which you need to control fires to burn as much ground as you can. An example of a type of thinking which apparently does not come at all naturally to me. I can solve the levels, but not without a lot of trial and error. [review]
  • Sonny, pretty much the perfect flash RPG experience. [review]
