Links from others today, because it's Friday! Thanks, everyone.

From Tim: a very cool and very spooky BBC documentary on the Bermuda Triangle.

From the Library Underground mailing list: look, a cute little Japanese mascot for wartime!

From Bunny: chimpanzees are using spears to hunt. (Bunny's comment: "it's payback time for being made to run around in funny outfits and rollerskates in the 70s.")

Also from Bunny: The L Team! The last shot is hilarious.

From Satori: our alma mater is in the top 5 schools for most illegal downloads. We're so proud.

Also from Satori: " When you have the time, and can have your volume up, there is a really fantastic video that was made by a woman named Amanda Biggs. She’s 26 years old and Autistic. She makes such a strong statement with this video that it really makes you think about alternate ways to communicate and interact with your world.

The first part of the video is shot with no explanation. You just see how Amanda interacts with her surroundings, experiencing the world. In the second half she explains her behaviors and what her language means to her. She asks the question, why am I deficient because I haven’t mastered your spoken language and yet you are not deficient when you do not interact with your surroundings in the deep and meaningful way that I do?"

And finally, one last contribution from Bunny: the strangest, most useless mp3 accessory ever.

Have a spiffy weekend, everyone! See you Monday.

RE: iTP station - Now if they made it a DUAL iPod deck with crossfade capabilities you could have some pretty rockin' times in the Loo! LOL.

I think it's safe to say that if you're spending enough time in the bathroom that you need to select music for the visit, you might invest in some prunes instead!

I'm totally asking for that for Christmas! I might also have to steal that for mention later.

I'm waiting for the day chimps ride elephants to charge into cities by the sea. There, they will meet with the walruses to devise plans for our destruction. None of us will be safe. I have only one thing to write/say, HEC.
