Friday Links!

What a week. And sorry for the premature post-ulation there.

A bevy of interesting links from Steven M: Exclusive Area 51 Pictures: Secret Plane Crash Revealed, Arnold Schwarzenegger Complete Japanese Commercial Filmography (some of these are outstanding), and a classic and thoughtful teleplay from 1969-- The Cube starring Richard Schaal. An interesting note about The Cube (which "covers many themes such as, the nature of reality, individual versus scientific perception, self-reference, man's relation to others and society, insanity, social projections, and race relations"): it was produced and directed by Jim Henson before he focused on The Muppets.

From Steven Kreuch, and this is entirely bizarre and fantastic, it's The Doggie Doo Game, and yes, you must watch the video.

From Greg, and this is nothing short of incredible, it's Michael Winslow (the genius sound effects guy from the Police Academy series) performing Whole Lotta Love. The guy is a flawless lead guitarist, and he doesn't even need a guitar!

From Brad Brasfield, and this is the closest thing to a holodeck I've ever seen: Ultimate Battlefield 3 Simulator - Build & Test (Full Video) - The Gadget Show.

From Doug Walsh, and who knew: Sunrise Death Ray Over Mt. Lanier (okay, it's just a shadow, but still cool).

From Kevin W, and if you've seen this, hopefully you can forget: Sperm bike attracts attention in Seattle. What's next, a Plan B bike?

From Sirius, and I guarantee you will be amazed by this video: Hagfish produce enought slime to choke a shark. Also, it's the greatest Halloween costume I've ever seen.

From Frank Regan, an absolutely ridiculous unicycle stunt video.

From Griffen Cheng, and these are stunning: Journey Into The MicroWorld. Also, and I think this is the most interesting link of the week, it's Mathematicians on Ham Sandwiches. One more, and it's Pictures of Exploding Objects .

From Dave Yeager, and this is a terrific article (with an incredibly poignant photo as well): Mr. Celery, Unmasked! Yes, it's about a team mascot.

From LummoxJR, and this is absolutely NSFW, it's Project Rant.

From Jeff, and be sure you didn't eat anything before you play this, it's First Person Tetris.

Finally, from John Catania, and what a high-concept way to end the week, it's A Frightened Face Appears in Ultrasound of Man’s Testicle.
