What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

Linkee-poo, nothing to see here, go back to your trailer

X-rays of NASA spacesuits. (Grokked from Tor.com)

How to tell if you're having sex with a fallen angel. A good list to keep in mind. (Grokked from the Slactivist)

There's a hole in the bottom of the ocean, and there's a Grand Canyon under all that Greenland ice. (Grokked from Jay Lake)

And speaking of holes in the bottom of the ocean, how about the world's largest super volcano being discovered in the Pacific. Oh, and I can hear you say, first that pillar to Azathoth, then blood worms in the water, and now a hige volcano at the bottom of the Pacific, surely the stars are aligning and the Old Gods slumbers are disturbed. The volcano is in the northern Pacific. Of course, "(t)he possibility that there were other undiscovered super volcanoes lurking beneath the earth's oceans could not be dismissed…" Sleep well. (Grokked from Jay Lake)

The "Walkie-Talkie" skyscraper in London that's focusing light strongly enough to melt cars. No, really. Apparently this isn't the first building by Rafael Viñoly that has this problem. For an international level architect, you'd think they would have heard of a parabolic mirror and what you can do with it. And then not make the same stupid mistake.

Ten storybook cottages. Although I'm sure if some of those people on House Hunters saw they they'd complain about the paint color. (Grokked from Jay Lake)
