Fink's Links #24

...and so another week draws to a close, lucky us! Here we are then, all the bits of the internets that smelled just like sweet home grown tomatoes, plucked fresh from the plant -

Lets kick this week off with a rather cruel prank involving an unloaded pistol and a firework (video)...

Next, check out an octopus with rather more than it's fare share of tentacles...

A great selection of incredibly unfortunate ad placements (ouch)...

Take a peek at a novel approach to keyboard cleaning fresh over from Switzerland...

How to deal with an Anaconda bite (video)...hope I never need to know that!

Gape open mouthed at the fact that it was only back in the 60's that rice (unbelievably) needed to market itself as a viable foodstuff (in the west anyway, the rest of the world was tucking in to their "egg fried" or "special" smugly all along)...

A selection of rather artistic Darth Vader helmet mods (Flickr sideshow)...

Fancy sneaking into Mike Tyson's mansion (abandoned in 1999)? Great taste in carpets, Mike (bleugh)...

More sneaking now, this time "science Labs at night" (shades of Black Mesa)...

How to calibrate your HDTV (a hassle I do not look forward to)...

No doubt you heard about the man who was blasted off his toilet by giant hailstones rattling up through the waste pipe, want to see the photographs? Executive summary - he wasn't exaggerating... ;)

A visually stunning collection of eyes (might be useful for touching up photos if nothing else)... ;)

Marvel at the incredible "Morning Glory Hole" in Yellowstone Park...

..."because the apocalypse doesn't have to be lonely"...

Fancy a bespoke, environmentally friendly coffin? Bonus points - printed with the image or pattern of your choice...Not a joke...

And finally a funny video entitled "Who said it - Bush or Batman?"...

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

Have a fantastic weekend (we are off camping in Colin the Camper again)... ;)
