Link roundup

1. "How Do You Cook Fancy Local Food When There's Nothing to Cook?"
The Puerto Rican food supply is fragile: Eighty percent of it is imported, and pricing regulations generally favor imports over local goods. This is often lost in the discussion of its ongoing $72 billion debt crisis, rampant unemployment, and people leaving the island in droves for Florida or New York. Its native agriculture is being restored, but the pace is too slow to supply the island’s restaurants,
2. Vader kills 11 people in episodes 4-6, and the people he kills in 5 and 6 are Imperials. Luke kills 369,740.

3. Cities functioning as harems.

4. "Fallout 4 player has head snatched away by Deathclaw, but lives on"
The most interesting thing about this glitch (and yes, I suppose it is a glitch, albeit a cool one) is that rather than breaking the game, the game adapts to it. The player's Perception stats are zilch, and enemies are unable to land headshots. Sure, it makes it harder to get a haircut, but who's going to mess with a headless wastelander?
And speaking of Fallout videos: "they started launching nukes!"

5. The Fallout 4 Ultimate Vault Dweller's Survival Guide Bundle is 40% off at Amazon.
