Rejoice, for it is Friday, and I bring you a whole bunch of links sent in from readers. Many thanks, everyone!

From Cassandra: the vice-chancellor of Buckingham University is a sexist pig. Also from Cassandra: surrealism makes you smarter, addiction is less clear-cut than it may seem, old books are being destroyed to save us from lead poisoning, and sex robots are on the way.

From Julie: sheep are working as landscapers and crocodiles are working for the Mafia! Also, newly digitized parish records detail deaths from bubonic plague, and a new exhibit by artist Luke Jerram finds the beauty in disease.

My mom recommends economist Robert Reich's weblog for anyone interested in current events. (Thanks, mom! I think it's great that she reads blogs.)

Bunny wants everyone to know how a college library is really used (he says this is "spot on") and also provides our moment of zen to close out this week's postings. Have a spiffy weekend, everyone! See you Monday.

I've always thought I was small and insignificant, but now, thanks to the aquarium post, I know I am small and insignificant.
