Off topic: Giving God feedback; 3D-printed van Gogh ear; @everyword creator; which English do you speak?

“Let’s fast-track an alt version with mankind removed. Doable?” — from client feedback on the creation of the earth. ICYMI — or in case you were missing it — van Gogh’s severed ear has been 3D printed using living cells from his great-grandson and some other stuff. People got “pissed” when “sext” was tweeted on @everyword, says the Twitter feed’s creator, whose favorite word is “the.” And speaking of words, Games With Words has a quiz that tries to determine which of “the world’s Englishes” you speak.
