Happy Friday! Many thanks to everyone who sent in links. We’re going through them alphabetically by contributor, just to be librarian-like about it.

From Aaron (via Bunny): Sure, anyone can make a gauntlet. But can you make a Dungeons & Dragons gauntlet, with real dice-shaking action implanted in the gauntlet itself?

From Brendan: The Komen Foundation/Planned Parenthood kerfuffle takes on a whole new level of weirdness when it's pointed out that there's a Komen-sponsored pink handgun. Er….

From Bunny: an amazing new mobility device (Bunny says it looks a little like a Dalek prototype, which is true, but don't let that deter you!) that lets disabled individuals stand, move, and engage with others at eye level.

Also from Bunny: Ants! They’re incredible. See the proof.

From Cassandra: After a person is cremated, the surgical implants can be recycled and used again. Interesting stuff. (Cue some bizarre horror movie script...)

From Julie: The headline she sent, “Shock as blue balls fall from sky,” says it all, really.

From the Sparkle Queen: Celebrate the 200th birthday of Charles Dickens by swinging out at the Revolving Museum this weekend! This looks like a great time all round.

Have a spiffy weekend, everyone! Back next week.
