Link roundup

1. I mentioned this a few weeks ago, but here's more confirmation that the massive surge in Old Spice sales was due to coupons, not the ad campaign.

2. Colombians are living out the plot of a bad horror movie:

Diego Ferney Jaramillo, 16, and Eibart Alejandro Ruiz Munoz, 17, were shot dead on Aug 15 while riding a motorcycle on the outskirts of the town of Puerto Asis.

Two days later, young people in the town received via Facebook a hitlist with 69 names on it, including those of the two killed. The teenagers on the list were advised to leave town or face death.

Norbey Alexander Vargas, 19, was shot dead three days after his name appeared on the list.
3. Time4Cat: a fun little time waster, kind of like if Frogger starred a cat. Via.
