Off topic: CIA Starbucks, fading signs, egg flowchart, Hippo Po’Thames

The “Stealthy Starbucks,” where baristas go through “rigorous interviews and background checks” because they serve the CIA. Ghostsigns collects photos of fading ads on sides of buildings. A flowchart that calls itself a “culinary exploration of the world’s most versatile ingredient”: the egg. And what do you know, the wooden hippo cruising the Thames has a Twitter account, @MrHippopothames.
