A long weekend's coming up, and that means it's time for...cheese rolling! And tortoise racing! It's also National Vegetarian Week, although I don't think anything special's planned for the weekend. Maybe you could throw an all-organic banquet.

If you can't make it to the tortoise racing, you can at least watch meerkats via the joy of Meerkat Cam. You can steer it around and zoom in and out, too.

In Valencia, Spain, there's a giant figure of Gulliver lying on the ground, and kids can pretend they're Lilliputians and climb all over him. Er, well...

And for the morbidly inclined, there's a set of figures called Buildings of Disaster, which includes the Chernobyl plant, Oklahoma City's federal building, the Pentagon...and, inexplicably, the OJ Bronco chase. Evidently the LA freeway is considered a building. Who knew?
