Friday Links!

Leading off this week, from Jonathan Arnold, and it's quite a find: the Newspaper Map. Over 10,000 newspapers pushpinned on a world map and linked to Google Translate.

Sent in by Josh Eaves, this is absolutely one of the freakiest things I've ever seen: Science Scientists Combine Human Cell, Jellyfish Into Living Laser.

Here's a link of an epic walk home, stitched together from UK security cameras: Stumbling Home. This man is obviously channeling John Cleese.

From Jesse Leimkuehler, a remarkable discovery: Huge Magnetic Bubbles May Churn at Solar
System's Edge

Matt Sakey's excellent Culture Clash column has a new installment, and this week, it's about privacy: The Open World.

From Mr. Fritz, and this is definitely NSFT, but man, is it funny: Go the F**k to Sleep - read by Samuel L. Jackson.

From The Edwin Garcia links machine, and I don't think anyone thought this was possible: Self-taught metallurgist creates lighter, stronger steel in a flash.

From Brian Shilling, and this is entirely obscure and wonderful: The Unsung Heroes of Biscuit Embossing.

From George Paci, a very clever bit of satire that mocks the current state of journalism as it relates to science: This is a news website article about a scientific paper. Also from George, and this is phenomenal technology, but chilling at the same time (think 'The Commissar Vanishes'): diminished reality.

From Mike Dunn, the news that Gaming Trend has relaunched.

From Michael M., and this is an amazing image: ash drifting from Chilean volcano.

From Sirius, and this is quite remarkable: Australian built Hoverbike prepares for takeoff. Also, and these are quite incredible images, it's A bug's life: Photographer captures flies in exquisite detail by snapping each one 687 times through a microscope.

From Michael Hughes, and this might come in handy: How To Make 2D Glasses for 3D Movies.

Dave Tyrrell sent in a link to the new 2011 US Women’s National Soccer Team Kit. That, by itself, would be unremarkable, but I dare you to look at the jersey and not think "naughty nurse outfit."

How could this possibly go wrong? 'Didn't expect' to lose finger, says man who shot off wart.

Steven Kreuch sent in a link to a lovely, melancholy web site, and instead of trying to describe it, I'll just say hit the link, because it's worth it: Dear Photograph.
