Friday Links!

That Bruce Lee video from last week was not real. Damn it. But there are many more things that aren't real this week for your reading pleasure.

From Don Barree, a fascinating look at an underground street art project in New York City.

From David Gloier, a story about the resurgence of pinball.

Here's a fascinating link from Katy Mulvey: proof of concept of stone-age telegraphy. No, I'm not saying telegraphy existed in the stone age, but rather, that the materials existed to create a working telegraph.

Jeremy Fischer, and be sure to read the reviews, it's the Wheelmate Steering Wheel Desk Tray. From the same company that brought you the Ninja Folding Grappling Hook. Also, The Fall of Realtime Worlds. Also, The Escapist has its take on Realtime Worlds as well.

From Frank Regan, and this is quite good, a fan-made trailer for a Twisted Metal movie.

Glen Haag of The Blog For The Sports Gamer did an interview with Gary Gorski (Draft Day Sports, Total Pro Golf series).

From Chris Pencis, and these are outstanding, it's Vintage Star Wars travel posters.

From Dan Quock, a writer for Ellen walking through a haunted house. It's not Masterpiece Theater.

From The Edwin Garcia Links Machine, it's people doing awesome things. Also, and this is amazing, it's clay shooting with a compound bow.

Leo Tan, in addition to debunking the Bruce Lee video, sent in two remarkable links to Lee's one-inch punch (the first is Lee himself, while this one is of a student, Sijo James DeMille).

From Mark Lahren, and this is quite striking it's a marble machine.

Two excellent links from Chris Meyer: the first, about how the echolocation used by bats can cause odd behavior, and dolphins walking on water. Oh, and one more, about bots playing Starcraft.

From Brian Minsker, it's spectacular cardboard art. Also, the Bear Saver, a bear resistant poly cart (the video makes it look like a bear toy, more than bear resistant).
