My mum has kindly bought me a bag of bread flour. She thought that the weight of the bag was on the photo she sent from the shop, but it wasn't.
I now have 16kg of bread flour. Better get baking!

unsettling screenshot of a tory being interviewed from inside his own house 

on the chalked arsenic, an arsenic-framed picture. it's obscured by the tory himself. we can't know what is contained in the ring of arsenic. the tory himself is pale with chalk, pale with the fine powder that coats every edifice. a mausoleum is turned inside out, the pillars and plaques are brought indoors, the bodies everted onto the streets. there is no angle that isn't right.

unsettling screenshot of a tory being interviewed from inside his own house 

something chilling about the interior shown here, the environment a tory chooses to inhabit. crystal doorknob too high on the door. the door itself contains neoclassical pilars. a pillared fireplace made of chalk supports a crystal plinth for a milkwax candle, never burned. the candle is itself a neoclassical pillar. a crystal mirror reflects the edge of more chalk, more crystal. the walls are arsenic, coated in chalk.

..."well, i can place a few digits here and here. but that's it. after that it's impossible."

"well i suppose i could narrow down this digit here but like. this grid does not have a unique solution. it can't."

anyway click the link to watch a man go from frustrated with his friend to unbelievably stunned at the impossible beauty of the puzzle he just solved in only 25 minutes
