Fidget spinners have been rampaging through pop culture like a hurricane. Their absurd spread has been spurring all kinds of knock-offs and references of all types.

Well, now the trend has spread into automobiles after these Russian bloggers welded the front end of the three cars together. 

It goes just about as well as you'd expect....

This claim, like the microchimerism the viral article responsible for it purports to describe, is an incongruous mixture of information whose ultimate purpose remains unclear.

Title: None
Fandom: Babylon 5
Rating: G
Characters: Ivanova and Marcus

Half shadow, half spider, it hung before them, all sharp spikes and razor edges. Blacker than space; a darkness well beyond anything in human experience. Light seemed to slide off it; to cower from it; to skitter away, and hide itself in places unseen. Ivanova could only sympathise. And they were to fight these things? These shadows that light itself seemed to fear? Beside her, Marcus whispered something in Minbari – a prayer, she thought – then flashed her a wholly incongruous grin. She smiled back. And why not? When light itself was afraid, what else was there to do but smile?

We got a chance during the past week to check out the new "Downtown is Pawsome" statues in downtown Albany as they sit in their new sidewalk habitats.

The three-foot-tall statues -- inspired by Nipper and decorated by local artists -- are part of the annual public art program coordinated by the Downtown Albany BID. Eight are already in place, two more will be out this week, and another ten are on their way.

Here's a quick photo gawk at the statues, along with a clickable map that we'll update as the statues appear. The pieces are all within walking distance of each other, so you could definitely string them together as part of your own walking tour some day this summer -- with, you know, maybe a stop for a drink or donut along the way.

there's more

At Vox there's been an interesting conversation between Dave Roberts and Brent Toderian, who was Vancouver's chief planner for many years. And this segment -- about making urban areas attractive families -- touched on some issues that will be familiar here: neighborhood amenities, regulating new residential, the design of urban housing, and making cities attractive to people of all ages. (Yep, Vancouver is on a totally different scale than the urban areas here, but some of the same lessons may still apply.) [Vox]
