Friday Links!

Leading off this week, from John, the longest unicycle journey I've ever seen: over 2,900 miles.

From Sirius, and this is quite a discovery: Researchers find tiny dinosaur that had quills, a beak and fangs.

From The Edwin Garcia Links Machine, and these are quite striking: Cutting Corners: Paper Silhouette Cinematic Scenes. One more, and this is both insane and spectacular (the audio is smile-inducing as well): Watch a 4-Year-Old Tear Up a Mountain Bike Trail with a GoPro on His Head. Last one, and this one makes for fascinating viewing: Everything Is A Remix.

Also, and this is a fascinating bit of history, it's First Pictures of the Surface of Venus.

From C. Lee, and this is a fascinating interview with the creator of the "Mother/Earthbound" series: Shigesato Itoi shares lots of 'delicious life'.

From Clayton, and this is the coolest halftime show ever: The Ohio State University Marching Band: Videogame Salute.

From Donny Plumley, and this is stunning: Professor Walter Tschinkel makes a Molten cast of an Ant Colony.

From Jonathan Arnold, and these are amazing: Hexaflexagons and Hexaflexagons 2.

From J.R. Parnell, and this is a all-hands-on-deck Star Wars nerd alert: The Star Wars Saga: Introducing Machete Order.

From Matt Watson and this is a remarkable story: The CIA Burglar Who Went Rogue.

From David Byron, and nothing like having your most embarrassing (and last) moment preserved forever: 100 Million-Year-Old Spider Attack Preserved In Unique Fossil.

Remember Manute Bol, one of my favorite players ever? Manute Bol’s Son Is 6′5” And In Seventh Grade.

From DQ Fitness Advisor Doug Walsh, and this is simply impossible: Red Bull Rampage 2012 - Contour Footage: Zink Canyon Crash. One more that's bicycle related, and this time, it's trials riding with a sub-18 pound carbon fiber racing bike.

From Yacine Salmi,  and this is one of the coolest uses of Legos I've ever seen: LEGO Great Ball Contraption.
