- Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, a new ’80s-inspired video game from Ubisoft Montreal, opens with Toronto being annihilated by a nuclear bomb. (A screenshot is above.) Oh well. This isn’t the first time.

- Oh look. Mayor Rob Ford made The Economist again: “But like a weighted inflatable doll that when punched springs back up, Mr. Ford is still standing.”
