caption It’s a lot of food for less than $15. source Hollis Johnson New Yorkers love Shake Shack. The West Coast swears by In-N-Out. But North Carolinians say that there’s one burger chain that trumps them all. Cook Out is a North Carolina-based fast-food chain serving up burgers, barbecue, and milkshakes, and it’s renowned in the South for its low prices and high quality. But if you don’t live in one of the 10 states the chain is in, you might have never heard of this cult restaurant and its fervent following. So we went to Richmond, Virginia, to sample the much-hyped chain and see how it measured up to the coastal titans of the burger business.

Weather Factory’s Cultist Simulator has a straightforward name, but the game itself isn’t so easily defined. It’s interactive fiction that trades in digital cards. It’s filled with intricate text describing otherworldly events, but players are urged to make quick decisions by ticking clocks. It’s a roguelike, where death is final and characters and items arrive in mysterious, randomized ways.

And Cultist Simulator does have the hallmarks of Kennedy’s previous works like Fallen London and Sunless Sea, both of which feature Lovecraftian gothic terrors and cryptic adventures. Likewise, Cultist Simulator is set in an enigmatic world that seems to exist in a reality fractured by some ineffable … [Read more...] about Cultist Simulator is how Sunless Sea’s creators play with cards and reality
By George Musser, SpectrumMar. 9, 2018 , 9:00 AM Originally published on Spectrum Satsuki Ayaya remembers finding it hard to play with other children when she was young, as if a screen separated her from them. Sometimes she felt numb, sometimes too sensitive; sometimes sounds were muted, sometimes too sharp. As a teenager, desperate to understand herself, she began keeping a journal. “I started to write my ideas in my notebooks, like: What’s happened to me? Or: What’s wrong with me? Or: Who am I?” she says, “I wrote, wrote, wrote. I filled maybe 40 notebooks.” Today, at 43, Ayaya has a better sense of who she is: She was diagnosed with autism when she was in her early 30s. As a Ph.D. student in the history and philosophy of science at the University of Tokyo, she is using the narratives from her teen years and after to generate hypotheses and suggest experiments about autism — a form of self-analysis called Tojisha-Kenkyu, introduced nearly 20 … [Read more...] about Does autism arise because the brain is continually surprised?
