Fun Links

Bad Designs in the Star Wars Universe. Yes, a robot that can save the world but can’t go down steps or speak English is a major design flaw.

If it’s ever been spilled by the truckload, it’s probably on Truckspills.com. Oh, you didn’t know horse blood and whale guts were transported by truck?

21 Oddly Named Places and the Stories Behind Them. I’ve managed to live near three of these in my life and never knew their stories until now. (via J-Walk Blog)

The Top Ten Daredevils (of the past and present). You can probably guess number one, and maybe number two, but have you heard about the 63-year-old woman who went over Niagara Falls in a barrel?

It’s both cute and awkward when a star struck fan gets to interview Rupert Grint from the Harry Potter movie series. You don’t have to understand a word to know what’s going on.

A woman saw a bear in her backyard, but there is no footage, or even a picture of the actual bear. How do you make a compelling video report for the evening news?

The Beloit College mindset list for the class of 2013, mostly born in 1991. This annual list can make you feel downright arthritic, but Britney Spears is NOT played on MY classic rock station.

Shimura Zoo’s chimpanzee celebrity Pan-kun is shown some magic tricks. He is the perfect audience for this type of entertainment, but to us, he IS the entertainment.
