Happy Friday! Many thanks to everyone who sent in links. Here we go!

From both Zazoo and Cassandra: Kings Island has supposedly been haunted since its opening by a little girl in a blue dress. Neither I nor anyone else I know who worked there (and this was the place to work when we were in high school) ever saw a little girl in a blue dress haunting anything. I call shenanigans!

From Bunny: The apocalypse in 14 days, as depicted by social media. Good stuff.

Also from Bunny, who likes me despite my being an introvert: Stop putting us in teams! We like working alone!

From Cassandra: January is Human Trafficking Awareness Month.

Also from Cassandra: Many doctors have a view of death which might be unexpected.

From Julie: Should we eliminate the leap second? Time travelers are on edge, waiting to find out!

From Zazoo: a steampunk laptop for gaming. Wow.

Also from Zazoo: Think Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” sounds suspiciously like Madonna’s “Express Yourself”? Someone has done an experiment and, uh, I think Madonna may have a case here.

Have a spiffy weekend, everyone! See you Monday.

Thanks for alerting readers to HTAM.

Currently, there is a trend to let some perpetrators off the hook if they agree to enter a diversion program.

Let lawmakers know that the victims don’t get a second chance, so neither should the perps.

Excellent reflection by Ken Murray, MD about how doctor's make decisions about their own dying process.
