Hi! I haven't done one of these in ages, but I love you all, and I have things to share! IT LIVES. THE LINKS POST LIVES.

Happy Sunday!

Links: Happy-making Vids

How To Eat A Watermelon: a very serious video. This is very serious eating business. (If the embed isn't showing up, you can watch the vid on YouTube here)


Oppa Klingon Style! (If the embed isn't showing up, you can watch the vid on YouTube here)


The Law Office of Lando Calrissian is here to help! (If the embed isn't showing up, you can watch the vid on YouTubehere.)

Links: Things To Make & Do
Apparently, naked gardening in England is a thing. A thing you could possibly participate in, if you wanted to. But not now. It's getting cold outside now. [New York Times]

Speaking of the weather, and the sniffling mess it turns me into, here's a great recipe for making your own frugal, organic cough syrup! [Frugal Babe]

Do you have a garage? Wanna make it look real spiff? Why not try painting the door to look like a giant bookcase? [LA Observed]

This recipe for vanilla custard with roasted blueberries looks heavenly. I may make some today. [Smitten Kitchen]

Wanna watch bears at Brooks Falls in Alaska's Katmai National Park? Lucky you, there's a live Bear Cam! (Bear report as of Sunday, 9:47 CST: no bears.)

Links: Science!
BoingBoing recently linked to two short films about the life and death of a 125 year old tree. Amazing.

Carl Djerassi, first person to synthesize an oral contraceptive, only person who wouldn't call himself "the man who invented The Pill," also a playwright, does a Q & A at Wired. [Wired]

To file under "science: adorable", the London Zoo does an annual audit of its creatures, to see who's gained weight and is thriving. Here is a slideshow. You're welcome. [The Guardian]

Haven't you always wanted this t-shirt?

Um, holy crap? Robot that responds to brain-originating electrical impulses helps paralyzed people do stuff. (If the embed isn't working, you can watch the video here on YouTube.)


Links: Misc. Neato and/or Silly
Your cat will loooove this unicorn horn for cats!

That Google map car? With 9 cameras on it, that drives around the world taking images for Google Maps? Sometimes it picks up weird fucking shit. Link is to Jon Rafman's tumblr, where he posts things he's discovered.

What would you take with you if your house was on fire? Foster Huntington's excellent art projectThe Burning House, collects photos of the stuff people have chosen. Here is a news article about it, too.

Hello, my baby! Hello, my lover! Hello, my long-time pal! [The Monkeys You Ordered]

I applaud the spirit of this coffee shop, where you can do a paternity test, get your taxes done, and have Christmas portraits of your kid taken, all while drinking your cuppa joe. I'm curious about the quality of the coffee, though. (Here is the shop's own website, on MySpace, even. Bless.)

Links: Stuff I Want
This adorable mug appears to be stuck in the table. Probably a terrible idea for a vehicle for my morning coffee, but still oddly desirable, yes? [BoingBoing]

LOKI AND THOR SNUGGLE BLANKET! What is this magic? [The Mary Sue]

You know what I could really go for right now? An anatomically-correct full-size chocolate skull. Yep, that would hit the spot.

Speaking of weird items, so there's this thing called the Therapik Bug Bite Reliever. And it looks like ass, right? but Gizmodo reviewed it positively, and then I took a second look at it and thought, you know, this is kind of a much cheaper ($12.95 USD) version of the No! No! Skin tool ($180 USD), which is supposed to get rid of cystic acne. Repurposing for great justice! (Also if you get a lot of bug bites, maybe it would be good.)

This pocket-knife-esque toy is the cutest.

Links: Fannish Misc.
Adorable small child insists that if she's going to visit Disneyland, she's going to do it dressed as Princess Vader. [Reddit]

Michael J Fox will soon be back on the small screen! Whoo hoo!

This handy chart of demon sigils seems like a good Supernatural fanwork resource. (Other than that, though, not so handy.)

These illustrations from a 1976 USSR edition of The Hobbit are magnificent. [Retronaut]

All 11 Doctors of Doctor Who, drawn as ladies. Aw yeeaaaah. 3 and 10 are my favourite.

And that has been the Sunday Links post! Back again (maybe) next week.
