Happy Friday, everyone! It's a three-day weekend for me, so here are the links from others and we'll see you back here on Tuesday.

From Julie: Antimatter streams from thunderstorms on Earth. Yikes?

I asked the Graveworm about the news concerning Ophiuchus, as I thought we knew this already, and he informs me that a) scientists recalibrated star charts this week, leading to the updated news and b) it's not news, as his site has had this information up for over a decade!

From Nicole: Look out, the prairie dogs are making a run for it...

From Zazoo and Satori: a map showing the recent reports of dead birds, fish and the like. Creepy.

If you're talented at haiku, you could end up as a character in John Scalzi's latest book! Well, at least your name would end up there. The contest ends Sunday, so act fast.

Swiped from Guy: Downtown Cincinnati, as it looked in 1973. It's rather different now.

From Josie: The Big Fat Quiz of 2010 is up! I will be watching this overt the weekend.

Have a spiffy weekend, everyone. See you Tuesday.

Oh nooooo! The pics of 1970s downtown made me feel wistfully alone. So, now, of course, I hate those pictures!!!!(haha)

Is the Google Map of the dead animals really that creepy? Seems like the markers fall along the same path as the winter weather patterns we've been seeing.
