Friday Links!

From Kevin W, and this link actually contains ten videos: unusual scientific phenomena videos.

A new installment of Matt Sakey's excellent Culture Clash column is up. This month, The Game of Life.

From Sirius, and this looks insanely difficult, it's an 8-year-old boy break dancing--performing 30 air flairs. Also, a bizarre yet entirely brilliant discovery: Gold Nanoparticles Could Transform Trees Into Street Lights. Here's one more: In the Grip of the New Monopolists. Wait, she isn't done yet: the magic pill that turns sour into sweet.

From DQ Reader My Wife, a story from The Onion: Oprah Invites Hundreds Of Lucky Fans To Be Buried With Her In Massive Tomb.

From John Rodriguez, and this video is amazing: Lewis Crathern Kite-jumps Brighton Pier.

From The Edwin Garcia Links Machine, the staggeringly beautiful cliff temples of India.

From Frank Regan, and trust me, you want to see this: a 15-story building built in two days. That's not a typo. Oh, and here's something else that is also excellent: an interactive story version of Night Of The Living Dead.

From Jonathan Arnold, a smokestack demolition gone awry.

If you've ever played Pop-A-Shot, you need to see this girl. "Fast" and "accurate" don't even begin to describe her.

From DQ Fitness Advisor Doug Walsh, the new video by Danny Macaskill, who is a freakishly excellent BMX rider. It's called Way Back Home.

From Jeremy Fischer, a video from comedian Tim Hawkins, with a routine about classic rock songs being updated to reflect the singer's age.
