Friday Links!

From Steven Davis, and this is extremely cool, it's Isaac Newton vs. Rube Goldberg: A Gravity-Defying Chain Reaction. Also, and these are stunning, it's Remarkable Macro Photographs of Ice Structures and Snowflakes. One more, and this is really quite incredible (it's probably my favorite link of the week), it's The finest bird song of 1890 produced by lovely brass mechanism.

From DQ reader My Wife, a holiday classic: the 42 worst nativity sets.

From John, and if you enjoy excellent sleight-of-hand work, this is for you: Yann Frisch. Also, and while it's not quite a Bird Segway, it's close: BirdBuggy.

From Brad Brasfield, and boy, this is a tantalizing possibility (that this may be the source of "vampires": Brothers Suffer From Rare Condition Similar To Vampirism.

From Griffin Cheng, and this is a remarkable adapation: Birds use cigarette butts to line nests.

From The Edwin Garcia Links Machine, and this is quite amazing: Back-up Tut and Other Decoy Spatial Antiquities.

From Chris Pencis, and the title says it all, it's The Unicycling Bagpiper of Portland...The "Unipiper".

From John Harwood, and this is the greatest safety video you'll ever see: An Unexpected Briefing | Air New Zealand Safety Video Boing 777-300 The Hobbit.
