Friday Links!

Loaded, or more appropriately, Loaded!

Here's an epic article about how the legendary chase scene in "Bullitt" was filmed.

From Sirius, and this is a mind-blowing concept, it's Quantum Entanglement Could Stretch Across Time. Also, and this is a signature moment if you've read about the history of comics: the Comics Code is dead.

From Clayton Lee, a link to another remarkable Danny MacAskill video. He does things with bicycles that humans just shouldn't be able to do.

From EvilTimmy, some absolutely spectacular images that show the extent of the recent floods in Australia. Also, and this is impossible to get out of your head, it's a cello cover of Michael Jackson's "Smooth Criminal".

From Kevin, and this is very cool: The anatomical features of Gamera and his foes.

From DQ reader My Wife, a remarkable video about LSD Research in the 1950s.

From Max Weinstein, an incredibly ingenious invention called the “Bottom’s Up Draft Beer Dispensing System” that will fill several large warehouses with money someday: The Death Of The Beer Line. Also from Max, a man who was a fitness badass before Jack LaLanne: J.P. Müller.

From The Edwin Garcia Links Machine, and I'm speechless with this one (but it's very funny), it's gun holster review.

From DQ Film Advisor And Nicest Guy In The World Ben Ormand, a video that's full of information (and a bit of self-congratulation, too): IBM looks back on 100 years of history, finds plenty to be proud of.

From John D'Angelo, a follow-up to last week's link "How Science Saved My Soul": The Pale Blue Dot - Carl Sagan.

From Jacob Jaby, and this is entirely, ridiculously amazing, it's Excel art.

From Ben Younkins, and this certainly doesn't happen every day: Mysterious grand piano found on Biscayne Bay sandbar.

From Caleb Forney, and this clearly should be impossible, it's a train that lays its own track. Also, and this is a video that demands to be seen, it's deep sea hunter fishes underwater for five minutes--on one breath. Next, it's an unusual and interesting phenomenon called Frazil ice.

From Brian Witte, a fantastic read about the greatest inventor of his time, Hero of Alexander.

From Dan Quock, the entirely fabulous Let's Play Super PSTW RPG 2009, with an equally amusing rebuttal of the game titled Dot Dot Dot.
