Links from others, and many thanks to them! This week's entry is video-heavy, so keep that in mind.

From Danny: Behold, the world of 2000! Also, the most pointless machine ever. (I think this might have some use in fixing blown fuses or something, however, with a little tweaking.)

From Julie: Not only is J.D. Salinger not writing a sequel to Catcher in the Rye, he's going to sue the man who is.

From the Graveworm: Cthulhu is on Facebook, and he (it?) has thousands of fans already.

From Bunny: Pygmy jerboas are very strange-looking. I finally realized that they are dead ringers for Q-Bert of '80s video arcade fame.

From Cassandra: the earliest known sound recordings have been discovered, the number of real-life superheroes on the street is increasing, the struggle between sex as a mental vs. physical experience goes on, and creative movie title sequences have their own website.

And finally, a video to end the week with, via a combination of finding this article about Mayor Bloomberg meeting his Muppet counterpart and Brendan's posting of one of my favorite Sesame Street performances ever. Muppets, Pete Seeger, baseball -- they're all here! Have a spiffy weekend, everyone. See you Monday.
