Link roundup

1. Comment and win art by JAW Cooper.

2. Apparently, to combat theft of donated food:

aid agencies at least sometimes turn to distributing food that is, well, pretty disgusting. Not rotten, not bad for you--in fact, the stuff they distribute in North Korea is vitamin fortified and very nutritious. But it doesn't taste good; it's essentially gruel on steroids. No one would voluntarily eat it if they had any alternatives. So there's not much resale value.
3. Adam Hughes is auctioning off an art commission at eBay. The bid amount is already pretty breathtaking.
