Links for Fun

An examination of why we are so drawn to sad LOLcats. Anthropomorphism makes it easier to confront -and laugh at- our own woes.

Ride a ship through the Panama Canal. A time lapse video takes you all 48 miles in only two minutes.

The dumbest exercise machine you'll see today. Gee, I sure love my treadmill, but wish I could use it on the road!

Cat vs. Cat in the Mirror. Guess who wins? Another of those videos that make you laugh and then feel guilty about it.

12 Pop Culture Cavemen (and Cavewomen). A man who resembles us but does not understand or fit in with the confusing modern world is a wonderful device for both comedy and adventure.

Puppet: An Animated Short by Patrick Smith. The animated story of a young man who creates a hand puppet that hurts him in increasingly gruesome and bizarre ways.

Watch 4,345,027 dominos fall to set a new world record. Someone needs to pick up their toys.

A recent New York fashion show had a super hero theme, with costumes modeled after action and science fiction film characters. But best of all, the clothing shown was make entirely of chocolate!
