There’s a slightly geeky theme with this week’s awesome collection of links. Check out the bonkers research of a bunch of real-life nutty professors – but consider this: although some of them are scientifically skilled, at least they’re not cooking up meth à la Walter White.

And don’t miss some stroppy kids from days gone by, wonderfully geeky t-shirts, and an assortment of fabulous wallets. Bottoms up.
