The Supreme Court and the rains down in Africa

It has recently been announced that the US Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will make a cameo appearance in the upcoming release 'The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part'. Elsewhere, in an undisclosed part of the Namib desert, one man has installed six solar-powered speakers playing Toto's Africa on a loop, designed to last "for all eternity". He explains, "The installation is supposed to be a bit like a treasure that only the most loyal of Toto fans can find."

Kyrgyz culture and the Novichok board game

The central Asian country of Kyrgyzstan is mulling introducing a law requiring its president to wear a national hat on future diplomatic trips, after a photo of a dog wearing the hat caused mass condemnation. Meanwhile, there are reports that a board game called 'Our Boys in Salisbury' is on sale in Russia. According to The Moscow Times, the box art depicts a crosshair centred on Salisbury Cathedral, as well as the Russian word for "finish" emblazoned across two figures in hazmat suits. Tasteful.

Ed Balls and the cold noodle news

There's big news in the Korean peninsula, as the presidents of North and South Korea have met in a historic summit. Among the important topics discussed was the exciting revelation that Kim Jong-un had brought Pyongyang naengmyeon, a cold noodle dish, for the South Korean president to enjoy. Far away in the United Kingdom, it's that time of year again where we celebrate the former shadow chancellor's famous Twitter faux pas, when he tweeted his own name by mistake. Wishing everyone a very, merry, Ed Balls Day.

How to play

The aim of the game is find a path from one Wikipedia article to another by clicking through linked articles. For each link clicked, you are burdened with 10 points. For every 10 seconds you play, you get an additional 1 point. The fewer points you have at the end, the better.

Suppose you are trying to find a path from Mexico to Gordon Brown. You could have

Mexico → Bermuda → Margaret Thatcher → Prime Minister of the United Kingdom → Gordon Brown

for 40 points, beaten by

Mexico → Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban → J. K. Rowling → Gordon Brown

for 30 points, yet again beaten by the shortest possible path of

Mexico → Foreign relations of Mexico → Gordon Brown

for a mere 20 points. But take too long trying to find that path and the points soon stack up.
