Fink's Links #45

I know - it's Boxing day - and trust me, I'm relaxing with a beer and cold cuts at Flyingpops folks right now (if everything has gone according to plan!), this I wrote before Christmas and scheduled...heh, cheated... ;)

So just in *case* you are bored enough to be on the internet today, it's link time!

Lets make a start with a Tetris ice cube tray...yep, too late to ask for it for Christmas now!

An ingenious Umbrella/knuckleduster combination, so you can carry your briefcase, hold your umbrella and still lash out at others during difficult commutes in the rain...! Why has it taken so long to fill this obvious gap in the marketplace? ;)

A really interesting animation made from 45,000 still photographs (thank you Times newspaper)...

Take a look at this really odd ID card this blogger found in a Chinese made wallet...

Discover that the Spanish are building a Lord of the Rings theme park (in Spain)...might be tempted to pay a visit when they've finished it (if it's any good)... ;)

Check out these really cool imbedded-looking Shuriken 'fridge magnets...

Meet Wooly Tiny (a minature laser-cut mammoth skeleton)...

Try to prevent yourself fainting as you discover something interesting actually happened in Second Life...

Scratch your head in a confused way at the antics of South Carolinas Banana Derby, people really still force animals to do this kind of thing...?

Watch as a couple of guys pour loads of concrete into a huge ant nest (and then dig it up when it has set)...sad because lots of animals died, but annoyingly extremely interesting to see the amazing chambers and huge tunnel network that is revealed...

...and finally a titter-worthy childrens book fail...

More links next week and you can find previous round-ups back in this direction...!

Now get off the internets, eat some cold turkey, consume too many chocolate liquors and fall asleep in front of the TV...it's the LAW! ;)

And didn't the mini wooly mammoth remind you of Stegs at FP?
