Wednesday means it's time for geographical and/or spooky links. Onward!

Google Earth has a (slightly hidden) flight simulator program embedded now, so you can soar above the states. Wheee!

Strange Maps, always fantastic, presents a 1937 map showing what was happening where. I was glad to finally get a grip on where the Mississippi Valley is, as opposed to the Ohio Valley. All that valleyness tends to blur a bit.

If it's October, that means it's time for the Circleville Pumpkin Show! I knew a girl who was the Pumpkin Queen one year. Yes. Really.

We've set the TiVo to tape anything Halloween-related. This was not one of our better ideas, because evidently every TV show ever made produced a "special Halloween episode." It's netted us some good finds amidst the junk, though, like DIY's Witching Hour specials.

And lastly, the truly spooky: how does it feel to die?
