Can you tell which of these chimps are related? Humans are quite good at recognizing “biological relatives through facial features,” but does that ability apply to our ultra-extended ones? Researchers need your help in figuring out how this trait evolved in humans and all you need to do is look at some cute chimp pictures. A real win-win.
Chances are you’ll never actually see Donald Hanson’s digital piece “Permanent Redirect,” but that won’t stop you from trying. The work moves to a new URL every time someone sees it, making it impossible to know how to reach it or link to it at any given time.

Here’s a thing you should do tomorrow: upon waking—without rising, turning on the lights, or checking Instagram—start your day with Just For Us, the new Francis and the Lights album that dropped as a post-holiday, pre-2018 surprise last week.
