Link roundup

1. T-shirt design contest, where the goal is to remix McBess's art.

2. Niche blog The Yelp Elite highlights amusing comments by Yelpers. For example:

Russo’s is a master of details…can’t help but notice the napkin changes that are made throughout the evening….1st is a Damask napkin, followed by a Chic dinner napkin and later changed to a Wilshire dessert napkin….Can’t imagine the huge pile of linens in the laundry area.

3. Tsunami stones in Japan:
Hundreds of so-called tsunami stones, some more than six centuries old, dot the coast of Japan, silent testimony to the past destruction that these lethal waves have frequented upon this earthquake-prone nation. But modern Japan, confident that advanced technology and higher seawalls would protect vulnerable areas, came to forget or ignore these ancient warnings, dooming it to repeat bitter experiences when the recent tsunami struck.
