Happy Friday! Come to Krampus Nacht (aka Carnival Noir) tonight if you’re in town.

The links from others this week have a definite conspiracy theme. Full moon? Preparing for the Mayan Doomsday? Who knows?

From Julie: The mysteries of the Voynich Manuscript continue. With carbon-dating information, no less!

Also from Julie: As Arafat is exhumed to check for poison, here’s a list of other exhumed individuals.

Also from Julie, part 2: An island on maps does not exist. Maybe that’s where Lost was filmed?

From Chuck via Cassandra: Members of a CIA man’s family say he didn’t jump out a window, he was pushed.

Moving on from conspiracy theories and on to other issues:

From Cassandra: A disturbing number of young people are HIV+ and don’t know it.

Also from Cassandra: Writers, technology, and the future – what will happen?

Yerdle is a new site focusing on the exchange of goods – a little like Freecycle, but more personal.

Gizoogle is just for fun. Translate any page into a trainwreck of wacky speech.

Have a spiffy and safe weekend, everyone! See you next week.
