Friday, hooray. On to the links from others!

From Holly, a truly weird article about blowing up the tunnels of ground squirrels in Spokane. We are highly pro-squirrel here at Spooky Librarians, and think this is cruel and unusual!

From Cassandra: UK readers are encouraged to join in the Great British Butterfly Hunt. There are worse ways to spend your summer. Also from Cassandra: a super-strong exoskeleton for soldiers, a charnel house under the streets of Boston, a giant statue of Jesus made from LEGOs, the 2009 Executive Paywatch, and how smile incidence predicts marriage success (huh?). brings you the ten coolest foreign words we need to absorb into the English language. (If you're into, check out Seanbaby's article on superheroes who crack up in odd and unpredictable ways, too!)

And finally, did you know that stamp machines are going the way of the pay phone? Weird.

Have a spiffy weekend, everyone! See you next week.
