Friday Links!

Leading off this week, from the Edwin Garcia Links Machine, one of the most stunning photographs I've ever seen: Crescent Lake: A Desert Oasis in China. Also, and be warned that this might make your head explode, it's Every Black Hole Contains Another Universe?.

From Nate Carpenter, and this is such a brilliant idea: Law and the Multiverse: Superheroes, supervillains, and the law. One more, and this is a ridiculous, amazing skateboarding video: WTF flat ground tricks (1000 fps slow motion).

From Sirius, and I promise you want to see this: Images from NASA's Solar Dynamics Laboratory.

From Scott Gould, and this is an amazing feat of strength: Is this the strongest man in the Super 15?.

From Jonathan Arnold, and I've linked to highlights of this race before, but it's always fantastic: The Isle of Man TT, the most insane motorcycle race in the world.

From Jeremy Fischer, and this is a tantalizing prospect: Supercharging the nervous system with biological, ion-transistor computer chips.

From DQ Legal Advisor Lee Rawles, and even though this video is clearly edited, it's still entirely delightful: salsa dancing dog.

From Simon Jones, and this is both touching and sad: Avery's Bucket List.

From Chris P., and there's nothing that doesn't explain itself here: The 12 Times NHL Goalies Scored.

From Tim Lesnick, and this is nothing short of bizarre: NASA Gets Two New Hubble Telescopes — for Free.

From Eric Caldwell, and you better take a look at the cakes, at least:
World’s Deepest Swimming Pools
What! That’s A Cake?

From Ryan Malinowsky, and I have no words: Dutch artist turns dead cat into remote-controlled helicopter, dubbed ‘Orvillecopter’ (don't freak out--it was his pet, and it was hit by a car. Kind of touching in a very odd, semi-disturbing way).

From Frank Regan, and this is quite clever: Speed of Light / aka / The World's Tiniest Police Chase.
