Friday Fun Links

Horton Sees a Pluto. It's like Dr. Seuss meets Dr. Phil Plait (the Bad Astronomer).

8 Delightfully Geeky Wedding Proposals.

A Fathers Day Story, from Justin Halpern, author of Sh%@ My Dad Says. If you can handle the NSFW text without laughing too much, you’ll find an odd but strangely touching story.

An insect running around on a touch screen is a real computer bug.

My Daguerreotype Boyfriend features pictures of hot men from history. Too bad they've been dead for decades.

A Semi-Secret History of MAD Magazine. A gallery of 34 pictures and text, just to introduce the magazine’s new blog.

Dick Shaefer Turns Rusty Old Cars Into Glorious Monsters. Ironically, he turned a VW Beetle bug not into an insect, but a spider!

See how skydivers practice for those choreographed ballets they do in free fall. This is much more affordable than jumping out of a plane hundreds of times -and we get to watch!

How the World Celebrates Dad. Different cultures have their own holidays and traditions, but here in the US, Fathers Day is this Sunday!

Simon’s Cat loses a toy underneath the refrigerator. What happens afterward will be familiar to any cat owner.
