Gawker News You Can Use

Because we live to serve:

• There's front-page news in Arts section of today's Times that the new novel Hunger's Brides, which looks big and heavy, is actually big and heavy. We just saved you 650 words.

• And enough of you wrote in that we now know what "urine power" is, even without a Greta stakeout. Apparently scientists in Singapore say they've invented a urine-activated battery. Which, given the way this city drinks, could probably solve a lot of Con Ed's energy problems.

You're welcome.
