There are few things greater than Escher, but a website where you make your own? Damn close.
Some cool font stuff came my way this week. And, Dungeons and Dragons.
I also found some cool tricks for stopping those bad mornings morphing into terrible days (without all the alcohol). Finally, the courageous startups brawling with dentists.

A real world lol is usually texted as a bunch of emojis, or hahas (usually with an enthusiastic typo).
LA's awesome history of weird, food-shaped restaurants.
