Finks Links #18

Hurray! It's Friday(!) and to celebrate, a really good collection of links this week (IMHO, of course), quite a mixture too -

An excellent video entitled "101 ways to kill G Man" (done with Garrys Half Life 2 mod)...great, simply because you can't kill him "normally"...

A picture entitled "I can promise, it will never get done"...

Somehow, I get the feeling that the marketing department at Burger King didn't upload their own pictures to Wikipedia...the "Whopper Teriyaki" is particularly real looking... ;)

Audio slideshow from the BBC of aerial photography during World War II (specifically D-Day and Auschwitz)...

Following the theme - a very funny defacement of a WW2 submarine advertising poster in Canada...

Sega unveil "Ema" - a diminutive robot "girlfriend" that can do "love mode" (not what it sounds like) and perform that other common-spousal activity - yes, handing out business cards (do they really expect to sell any of these?)

Page 8 from the American publication "Beginners Bible Coloring book" (sic) - "Even though we know Dinosaurs survived the flood (on Noah's Ark) we don't know if Jesus ever rode them - but he probably did!", got to love the colouring hints too... ;)

A good way to shoot bubbles...

Another rather good Tornado picture (this one perhaps left evacuation a touch last minute)...

Learn how to make money from the internet (no, not a scam - some very easy, very simple to do things, like answering surveys for £1 a pop - good if you are in a "desirable" demographic and have free time on your hands) that will legitimately earn you cash online (brought to you by "The Times")...

More Chinese food fun now - a large portion of "Chicken without sexual life for me please"... ;)

An amazing set of photos called "Silent World" by Michael Kenna...he obviously lives somewhere that gets quite a bit of snow (and where no-one else goes outside)... ;)

Step by Step - How to make an extremely small model of an orange...which has prompted a considerable proportion of the denizens of the internet to question "Why...?"

How about a nice Japanese vomiting dog game (a bit like "Operation" but you have to pull the germs out of the poor animals ejections in order to make it well again)...

Reprint of an article from Popular Science Monthly (in 1931) called "Will Autogiro Banish Present Plane?" by one Assen Jordanoff (very interesting read)...

...and finally, "The robots beneath the fluff"...

...previous entries can be found here, more next week! ;)

good stuff. reminded me of my religious education teacher at school who told us dinosaurs didn't exist ever but god created a fossil record of them when he created earth about 5000 years ago.
