As we come to the end of the year, expect an avalanche of "best of/worst of" links for tomorrow. For now, why not look at some particularly original gravestone portraits,  or read about Mary Shelley's invention of Frankenstein (and how it transmogrified over the years - thanks Cassandra!), or perhaps scheme up a way to transform a room's ceiling into a fiber optic starfield?

I am always saying I want one of the computers on CSI or NCIS. (I also want to work in a dimly lit environment and be able to dress like Abby Sciuto, in case anyone is listening...) In that vein, here's a tribute to the amazing magical "enhance" function available on those computers.

Also from Cassandra: a list from Doctors Without Borders of places needing the most help in 2009.  And lastly, a neat article from Listverse examines the top stories of 1909 and what's happening with them 100 years later.

Wow! The optic starfield celiling made me wet! I really think it is a need for me, not a want for me. Too cool.

And, the news stories 100 years later link, wow, things do and do not change. How is that possible?

This is a really long week. Glad to have your links to tweaze out some pleasure while being trapped in this ghost town. I dodged a tumble weed coming back from lunch. Seriously!
