The Weekend Links

An in-depth zooming panoramic of the inauguration. Can you find anything interesting? There are a few surprises (Thanks to Jan for this link and a few others!)
*
This blog goes out to all the Liberal Arts majors .... I feel your pain, but we must restrain ourselves from doing things like this for jobs.
*
Have Super Bowl Fever? Learn all about the art of its graphic design, and how the logos have reflected changes in the league and culture over the years.
*
Another good reason to play with your food - since they have all-you-can-eat seats, it can't be long before there's an all-you-can-eat stadium, right? Behold!
*
Take the Huffington World News Quiz this week (and every week on Mondays) and see how you fare (if you dare)
*
From Sami: Eastern honey bees use the Hansel and Gretel approach to defending themselves from attacking hornets by baking them ... to death!
*
From Margo, this link has been tossed around a few times, and since so many people like it I'll include it this week - for a little bit of mindless internet procrastinating fun, Shave My Yeti!
*
For more online gaming that's simple and fun, try your hand at Super Obama World or this Van Halen game.
*
A few great links from Flossy friend Merinda this week - to start, Khan the Opera and other Robot Chicken Star Trek clips that are positively fantastic. And if you're in a fan boy (or girl) mood, check out Darth Vader playing the blues.

From my friend Alejandro, the world's best passenger complaint letter. I suppose if anyone's going to take the time to construct a missive of that magnitude these days, they should get some recognition.
*
A fun way to get your news - in a video game!
*
From Lemondrop, couples who dress alike. At what point does it go from annoying to strange to cute? Judge for yourself.
*
For those of you who, like me, enjoy shows like "The Boy with Too Many Legs," here are 10 Baffling Medical Conditions to, well ... baffle you!
*
Not just another commercial ... wait for it to load. The future is now!
*
Need a tiny viewing stand for your tiny ipod or iphone screen? All you need are a few pencils and rubber bands (thanks, Larry!)
*
Be warned, no high school yearbook is safe. Sixteen of the most ridiculous senior portraits are ready for your perusal, reminding you how awkward high school was.
*
Definitely the creepiest thing I've ever watched .... from "Sorry You Asked," can cockroaches crawl in your ear while you sleep? My favorite part is when he deadpans, "because children sleep closer to the floor ... and often have food on them." Wash your kids, people! (Thanks Miriam!)
