Though Charles Manson and psychological horrors may haunt you, one real, current danger, according to Uproxx, is the big bad selfie. Allegedly, this year, 12 people have died while attempting to capture a selfie; Uproxx puts it in perspective by noting that eight people have died in shark attacks. Should you meet an untimely end whilst taking a selfie — or doing anything else, for that matter — a new service is being offered that’ll preserve your tattoos…in frames. Save My Ink uses “a chemical and enzymatic process that permanently alters the chemical structure thus permanently fixing [the tattooed skin sample] against decomposition.” Read so much more (and see photos) over at Hyperallegic.
Another source of disquiet: not understanding New Yorker cartoons. As The Atlantic points out, since 2006, there’s been a series of saintly individuals who’ve provided an easy fix to such difficulties: noting that certain comprehensible captions could apply to every New Yorker cartoon. A new one — “Hi, I’d like to add you to my professional network on LinkedIn” — surfaced today, thanks to designer Frank Chimero. Soon, other people on Twitter started tweeting their own, and the results are pretty spectacular.
