I am so very tired. These past few weeks have been hectic- getting together the school’s art show, scholarship after scholarship, senior presentations, getting ready for graduation, job hunting…. So I am off to take a nap after this, with my own cat. Enjoy the link roundup.
  • Yes, I am linking to xkcd again. Deal, because it’s amazing.
  • Are you a globetrotter? Yeah, me neither, but if we ever win the lottery, now you’ll know how to dress for whatever country you go to first.
  • Get a piece of paper, write the sentence, “She sells seashells by the seashore,” and then go here. You’ll find out all sorts of interesting things.
  • Barefoot devotees, unite!
  • I don’t think I’ve ever read anything negative about Switzerland in the news. This is possibly the best thing they’ve ever done- one more step into changing the ‘pets as property’ view our legal system holds here. I would totally be an abused animal lawyer…. 
  • I have a vague feeling I may have linked to Someone Once Told Me before, but too bad. It’s great, go (re)visit it.
  • An incredibly rare Buddhist flower bloomed in an even odder place. This flower looks as if it belongs on some blasted silvery moonscape- beautiful.

Rarely seen Buddhist Udumbara flowers, which blossom every 3,000 years, found under washing machine, Lushan Mountain, Jiangxi province, China

  • Aaaah! Monsters! In real places!!! Run!
  • Charlotte the Spider could, perhaps, use some work on her vocabulary.
  • Taking photos is fun. Having to look at photos like these is not. Be original, escape the nineties, people.
  • A-a-Achooo! Oh, god, there goes my eardrum/vertebrae/eyeball. Crap. Who knew sneezing was so dangerous?
  • This is an alphabet, but better, because it’s comprised entirely of cuddly, fluffy, adorable baby animals.
  • The eleven species that ‘win’ the Animal Kingdom Olympics.
  • Ten profound truths the author wishes she had known sooner in life.

First things first; a warning of sorts. The other night my friends and I were at a club in which 911 had to be called because a girl, whose ‘friends’ had let her sit passed out in the corner for the last 40 minutes, was convulsing. She either had alcohol poisoning or OD’d on something else. So, guys, when/if you drink or do drugs, be careful, ok? Just pace yourself. You’re awesome, don’t die because of something that lame. And for god’s sake, don’t do them with people who will dump you in a corner.

All right. On to some interesting things from the vast internet.

  • Totally amazing photos of amazing people. This will blow your mind, I promise. Includes Madonna, Marilyn Monroe, Bob Marley to name just a few.
  • Ahhh, the eternal existential plight of the lonely hipster… Furniture has never been so funny.
  • This is a list of some of the most interesting psychological experiments done.
  • Ever had a little too much and sent a text that maybe you shouldn’t have? Oh yeah. Been there. Soooo been there…. You will split your sides laughing, I promise you.
  • This has pictures of hot guys, but also some interesting history about male modeling. And also hot guys.
  • Someday, someone will invent a machine that Tweets our every thought automatically to the internet, and then the world will implode. Until then we can make fun of illustrated celebrity tweets.
  • Even bacteria get lonely… I think that is possibly the most evocative and heart wrenching headline I have ever come across.
  • Gorgeous, gorgeous, curve-multiplying jaw-dropping traffic stopping dresses.

I want this dress so bad. Like bacon. Except, maybe not the model’s makeup.

  • Too gory? Please. Who doesn’t like eating the dismembered remains of delicious gingerbread men??
  • They found a freaking unicorn! Well, no, not really, but still adorable and I want one soooo bad. Why are we not using our mad scientist, 21st century genetic powers on this kind of stuff?
  • Weird yet amazing and architectural shoes; yep, here you go….
  • …and in other shoe-related news, now your feet can disappear! How  amazing are these? I am considering trying to DIY myself a pair.
  • Have you ever eaten, like, a whole carton of ice cream or wolfed down a big-ass chocolate bar and been left in a total sweetness coma? Like you can never imagine wanting anything sweet ever again? This will do that to your brain.
  • Aaaand, to round out the list, totally hilarious yet alternately terrifying movie moments that scarred us all as wee children…. (Site  NSFW)

Waste some time, my darlings! Just tell yourself you’ll use it on Jeopardy at some point.
