Fink's Links #15

Well, it's been a long break, but I've managed to find time to scrape together a few interesting links for this Friday...(more on the honeymoon when Flyingpops gets round to writing about our first excursion (and yes, she volunteered))... ;)

Anyway, to start off with - "Snake eats pet cat!" (with bonus x-ray picture)...

x85-x110 magnification (roughly) look at different kinds of sand from around the globe (more interesting than it sounds)...!

September 11 TV archive, choose a channel, choose a time and then watch the whole thing unfolding in real time...absolutely incredible...

Two shuttle stories now, firstly learn about the guy with the self destruct button that watches each launch (twitching) and then, discover that in the event of just such a catastrophy (like the space craft breaking up on re-entry) the astronauts email and MP3 collection would be okay - 99% of the data from a hard drive found in the wreckage of the Columbia has been successfully recovered despite being involved in a 39 mile high, 12500mph accident...

Wired's interesting article "How to survive a nuclear blast"...

Epilepsy foundation's website hacked (in the most cruel fashion imaginable)...

Anime classic tune set to a custom automatic Mario level (in perfect time)!

Learn of the "Miracle Fruit", which chemically changes the way your mouth processes sour flavours (for an hour or so)...

Fancy a nice new "No contact" anti-crime jacket?

And finally - A picture entitled "Reality"... ;)

More next week, previous link collections can be found here...

The September 11 chronology of events on that page is very, very interesting.
