Link roundup

1. "The Oakland A's Billy Beane was among the highest water users in the East Bay during California's drought emergency this summer, trailing only a retired Chevron executive and a prominent venture capitalist."

2. Continuing to see reviews like this everywhere: "Undertale is a brilliant game and I want everyone to play it."

3. Eater:

"the documentary covers an experiment conducted two years ago by Iowa science teacher John Cisna. He set out to discredit the famed documentary Supersize Me and ate three meals a day at McDonald's for 90 days straight. Cisna — who restricted himself to 2,000 calories per day and added in 45 minutes of exercise four to five days a week — lost 37 pounds over the course of the experiment."
The documentary focuses on how Cisna involved his students in the experiment, alleging that the project was their idea. However, the Lunch Tray points out that in his self-published book about the project, Cisna writes that he came up with the idea after having dinner with a friend, who also happens to be a McDonald's franchisee. (The friend allegedly provided all the food.)
