Friday Links!

DQ Fitness Adviser Doug Walsh sent in a link for which I have no words: Deb 'Spoons' Perry Does The Black Keys. Believe me, you desperately need to watch this.

From Jeremy Fischer, and this is absolutely stunning: Living Infrastructure. Also, and this is quite amusing, what happens when a lion sees a baby wearing a striped jacket?

This is an entirely fascinating link from Steven Kreuch: I’m the Guy Who Made Snack Bags So Impossible to Open.

Chris Pencis sent in two excellent links: first, a wonderful website called Open Culture ("The best free cultural & educational media on the web"), which demands an immediate bookmark. Second, one of the videos available on the website: The Physics of Unicycling (created by a partnership of MIT and Khan Academy).

From Jonathan Arnold, and this is a fascinating story: In National Archives thefts, a radio detective gets his man.

From The Edwin Garcia Links Machine, and these photographs are amazing: Off The Grid. Also, and this is fascinating, it's lost lakes of the Empire State Building.

From Sirius, and this is quite intriguing: A new wind energy concept.

From DQ WPF Official Advisor Scott Ray, and this is remarkable, it's Microsoft Research shows dual views on existing LCD displays.

From Scott Gould, and this definitely belongs in the strangest headlines category: dolphins died of drug overdose after rave.

From Joel Hulsey, and holy cow: Skywalking: a dangerous new photo fad popular among Russian teens.

From Dan Willhite, and this certainly changes my perspective: Not such a wet planet: Picture shows how all the water on Earth would fit into one 860-mile-wide ball.

From Michael Gilbert, and this almost makes Action Park look tame in comparison, it's terrifying Russian thrill ride.

From Dave Prosser, and this will cause plenty of dinosaur "pull my finger" jokes: Dinosaur flatulence may have warmed Earth. Also, and it's a blast from the past, it's The Floppy Disk Means Save And 14 Other Old People Icons That Don't Make Sense Anymore.
