Chaos Patch (#69)
(Open thread + bring-your-own links)
Leprechaun Holocaust edition.
Suggested topics from this end (to be freely ignored):
* The second brain, fermented food, bacterial insurgency … (the China connections — soy sauce, stinky tofu, and congee pickle matrices — stand out). Bonus points for getting to Pickle Zombies.
* Crawling roots, which slither from the edge of Abstract Horror to the Mind of plants. Vegetable ‘intelligence’ appears to operate at a lower sentience frequency — which bounces attention across to the other end of the spectrum (into zones at least equally beyond us).
