splish splash kittens don’t like the water

Happy Tuesday, kittens, and welcome to your favoritest link roundup of the day! We’ve been a little heavy on the war and a little light on the cyber lately, but we’re going to be very firm with ourselves from now on and try to be a bit more selective. Besides, I always think shorter lists will save me time. Ha! I know, I kill myself. Didn’t we have a 10,000 word piece in there yesterday?

And don’t miss the features we’ve been doing lately. It must be said, we are somewhat on fire recently, thanks to contributions from Curt Hopkins, Heather Marsh, and AnonyOdinn. Another such contribution is coming up in two short hours, so check back frequently, kittens. Those FP subscriptions don’t pay for themselves ya know.
