Fink's Links #37

Almost weekless, again...! Just the weekend left now to keep us from running out of time - fear not though - just as the sun rises out of the oceans each day, if the proper rituals are followed then we'll have a nice fresh week to look forward to (when this one has finished playing with us), so I'd better get on with my little part of the magic and note down what I found this week seething in teh tubes(sic)...

Lets get ourselves off to a start with the birth of a new meme (I've seen it on at least 6 forums already as a reply to a sensible question - to much hilarity - so you may as well prepare yourselves)...

Now to a nice taxing (and equally random) segway by looking at "The Hardest Logic Puzzle Ever (apparently it is possible to solve in 2 questions - if your brain is the size of a planet and you have plenty of time to think about it)...

If you still have any thinking power left after that, check out this excellent talk by Susan Savage-Rumbaugh: "Apes that write, start fires and play Pac-Man"...

Criggo - A blog of amusing (mostly American) newspaper clippings... ;)

Check out some funny chess variants.... ;)

Next lets explore some amazing Mexican crystal caverns with National Geographic Magazine...

Time for a nice bit of urban exploration now, this time abandoned airfields (including the odd space shuttle)!

Discover how the other half drinks...somehow, I just can't rationalise the fact that anything enjoyed so temporarily can be worth anything like that much money, but hey, I'm not super rich...! ;)

A rather funny/cruel (and a little profane) T-Shirt (although some parts of the population won't get it)...

Retro photography now, with some new/old Rolleiflex lookalike 35mm Cameras from Japan (available in some rather funky colours)...not sure I could ever go back to film cameras now!

Check out an excellent opportunity to "take years off your life"...

...and last (but not least) a double-edged "Mens room fail"...(funny for two reasons if you are keeping up with your Memes)... ;)

So that's it for another week, there will, no doubt be more next week (assuming everyone else completes their rituals) and if you need proof that it works then you can see all the previous weeks links here...now go outside and play... ;)

I loved the abandoned areas, spent ages creeping around looking for souvenirs I could have secreted away,starting with the plane's instrument panel. Hmmm, maybe 'secreted' is not the right word? But then my rucksack is quite large.....
