Friday Links!

Once again, we are positively loaded.

From Stephen Kreuch, and these are quite stunning pictures, it's swimming with the crocodiles.

From Sirius, news of the discovery of a possible treatment for Ebola. Also, stunning sculptures made from vintage circuit boards. Next, and this is entirely awesome, it's gateway to the Viking Empire discovered in Denmark.

From Brad Ruminer, a website that tracks the history of MIT students hacking their campus.

A series of excellent links from David Byron. First, a terrific video of an excellent use for your big toe, courtesy of Houdini (it's supposed to start at 6:25 into the clip, so don't be surprised when it does). Next, Italian authorities have cracked an 11M dollar art fraud ring. Finally, it's Five Things You Didn't Know about John Tyler (most incredibly, that his grandchildren are still alive).

From DQ Fitness Advisor Doug Walsh, and I bet you'd never expected to see these three words in sequence, it's Proper Opossum Pedicure. Also, this is quite spectacular, an article about 3-D images you can touch.

From Eric-Higgins Freese, and I think this is my favorite mash-up of all time, it's Scott Pilgrim versus The Last Airbender.

From Amy Leigh, it's 15 Amazing Wii Controller Hacks and Modifications.

From David, and I think my head just exploded, it's Hackers blind quantum cryptographers.

From the Edwin Garcia Links Machine, an astounding commercial from a bygone era: Mattel's 1960s "Tommy Burst" t.v. commercial . It's the perfect toy for Christmas, as the "detective set" comes with the
"Tommy Burst" Tommy Gun,  a snub-nose .38, and a "snap draw" shoulder holster. Epic.

From Kevin W, it's high-speed bullet photography.

From Chris Mattos, and this is both stupidly dangerous and wonderful at the same time, it's Wheelchair Double Back Flip (the first one ever, apparently).

From Brad Ruminer, a stunning video: Asteroid Discovery From 1980 - 2010.

From Frank Donahue, and entirely bizarre invention: World's most amazing subwoofer has no woofer.

From Jake Margolis, and this is utterly wonderful, it's Sleep Talkin' Man.

From Jim, and there's no way this is real, but it's hilarious anyway: The Ultimate Extreme Sport.

I think this might well be the greatest headline ever.

From Keith Schleicher, and this is an outstanding way to close out the week, it's Judy Collins sings 'Send In The Clowns' on the Muppet Show.
