Friday Links!

Leading off this week, from Matthew Anderson, and these are oh so clever: How many surrealists does it take to screw in a light bulb? A fish: The most highbrow jokes in the world.

From The Edwin Garcia Links Machine, and this is terrific: AmputeeOT: My Legoleg - amputee prosthetic leg made with Lego bricks. Next, and some of these are excellent, it's Mickey shorts. This is stunning: Watch Franz Kafka, the Wonderful Animated Film by Piotr Dumala. One more, and it's funny: Measuring Your Dumbness With A Ruler in SLOW MOTION!

From Steven Davis, and this is amazing: Super Capacitor Pyrotechnics. Also, and these are beautiful, it's Beautiful 3D Printed Objects Made of Sugar by the Sugar Lab. One more, and these are absolutely stunning:  Rare 3D Camera Found Containing Photos from WWI.

C. Lee sent in a ton of terrific art-related links. First, it's Artist Shintaro Ohata Seamlessly Blends Sculpture and Canvas to Create 3D Paintings. Next, and this is so striking, it's Subtractive Street Art by Pejac on the Streets of Spain. One more, and it's quite wonderful: Manually Cranked Wood Toy Performs Sleight-of-hand Magic.

Two science-related links from Steven Kreuch: first, and this is fascinating, it's Free falling in outer space. Also, and this a book, not an article, it's Packing for Mars: The Curious Science of Life in the Void.

Matt Kreuch (brother of Steven and vice versa) sent this in, and it's amazing: 1940s Chevy Dealer re-opens to Auction off 500 Time Capsule Cars.

Speechless: The “My Little Pony Convention 2013 Highlights” Video Is Amazing.

From Jonathan Arnold, and this is entirely bizarre: Venezuelan Poodle Moth — Facts, Hoax, And Video.

From Jesse Leimkuehler, and this is quite spectacular: Strange Blue World: Alien Planet's True Color Revealed, a First.

Derek Silvers, who has done some seriously cool things in his life, has started a new company called Wood Egg and is creating guides to starting businesses in 16 different Asian countries. And he'd like some help, so if you're interested, go here and apply.
