Friday Links!

Leading off this week, from the Edwin Garcia Links machine, a strange and wonderful story: The legend of Mondo Kim's: how a cult video store's 55,000-item collection was nearly lost.

From Adam W., and this a wonderful follow-up to one of my favorite stories ever: Caine's Arcade 2: The Global Cardboard Challenge & Imagination Foundation.

From Griffin Cheng, and this is quite striking, it's This is What Happened When a Paint Truck Rolled Over. Also, this is entirely fantastic, it's Droplet of water inside droplet of water in Space. One more, and it's fascinating (I did this once for a few weeks, actually): Living Without Time.

From Loyd Case, a story about WMD. In Delaware, believe it or not: The Deadliest Catch.

From C. Lee, and this is a curious and interesting article: For S. Korean men, makeup a foundation for success. Also, and this is intriguing: Wind Lens Triples Turbine Output. One more, and it's an utterly fascinating article: How Advertisers Convinced Americans They Smelled Bad .

From Rob Funk, and this is intriguing: Warp Drive May Be More Feasible Than Thought, Scientists Say.

From Eric Higgins-Freese, and it would be highly entertaining to destroy the world diamond market: Russia admits to having ‘trillions of carats’ worth of diamonds hidden in an asteroid crater.

From Dan Willhite, and this is totally amazing: Solitaire “Win” Screen Constructed from Over 1,000 3D Playing Cards.

From Jonathan Arnold, and this is a great story: The camera from the bottom of the lagoon.

From hippo, and I bet you've never seen one of these: When fire tornadoes attack.

From JR Cabe, and these guys have excellent skill: Unicycle Freestyle. I'm still riding about 10 miles a week, but I'm also having achilles tendon troubles. My curse.

From Todd, and an up close camera for lions will always be awesome: BeetleCam vs the Lions of the Masai Mara.

From Marcus, and this is simply incredible: Cave paintings were Stone Age animations.
