Fink's Links #20

Another week, another steaming disgorgement of vaguely shrimp-like items ejected from the distended maw of the world wide internets for you to ponder hungrily over with your chop-sticks, what are you waiting for? Tuck in while it's still stomach-warm, some of it's even fresh! ;)

Shocked Americans given the opportunity for potentially offensive license plates to be replaced for free...wtf? ;)

How to hide an aircraft plant (just in case you ever find the need)...

How to fool a Japanese cigarette machine (actually, it's not rocket science)...

Enjoy some imaginary scenes from a flooded London in 2090 (the originals are on display in London at the moment, just to cheer everyone up)...

...and I know you probably didn't miss this as it's been all over the place, but just in case - the incredible story of "Christian the Lion" (with video goodness)...

Giggle as you watch a competitor in the doggie "dock-jump competition" change it's mind about jumping into the water (a little too late... ;)

Read about (and then listen to) some freaky Aztec/Mayan "Whistles of Death"...

Some amazing time-lapse photography of Aurora Australis: The (oft-neglected) Southern Lights

Decorate your home with some nice Nintendo "wall graphics" (scroll down to see the various styles)...

An excellent photo set called "Split Second" (my fave one is the Switzerland/rooftop combo) to challenge your sense of perspective...

Video of live lobster "claw game" - (PETA not amused)...

A photograph entitled "Awkward" (although it would be fine for Siamese twins)...

Human rights writer submit's himself to a nice spot of waterboarding (in the interests of investigative journalism)...with video goodbadness...

...and finally an Irish scarecrow...

More next week, and previous links can be found here (if you like this sort of thing)...

Now go outside and play... ;)

Loved the Irish scarecrow, very Father Ted! However the lion clip made me cry, what a softie!

The lion stories always get me too, it shouldn't be a shock as we have seen similar ones in the past, but what a vindication of human instinct over paranoia..."of course he will remember me!" ;)
