The Geekiest (slash, most awesome) Pants"¦ Ever?
*
The Curious History of Contraception - amazing (and sometimes slightly horrifying) moments in birth control, plus a look into the future.
*
From Jan in the "What the...?" category (as CNN would put it), two brothers act out a turkey hunt. I don't know why this exists but I'm glad it does. The guy who plays the turkey is pretty good, no?
*

Some mind-boggling photo manipulations that turn everyday snaps into stunning works of art.
*
The iPhone Ad You'll Never See (but should).
*
Adidas turns 60 - here's a retrospective of the classic sneakers (especially for you sneak-o-philes .... I know you're out there!) Can someone do my work for me - what does adidas stand for (if anything)? In middle school we had some ideas ... (as middle schoolers do).
*
Another pop icon has a birthday to celebrate - Hello Kitty is turning 35, so CNET's "Gadgettes" had a 'Hello Cougar' contest ... (Thanks Scott!)
*
From the Annals of Amazing Dog Talents, 8 Canines You'll Wish Were Yours.
*
In case you were wondering ... how many people are in space right now?

*
Kim sends in this very cool collaborative music/spoken word project "Just as the title says on the page: 20 YouTube videos, one with spoken word, the rest with music. You can play one, play three, play them all, adn they all flow together beautifully! You could spend hours on there!"
*
A lengthy but intriguing video about Validation, beginning with a simple parking ticket and becoming much more. Staring TJ Thyne, for the ladies! (Thanks Janel!)
*
A new way to play with your food: edible Tetris.
*
Axolotl, the amphibian that never grew up, is on the verge of going extinct in the wild. (Click this one just to see a picture of the lil critter).
*
The detriment of over-analyzing - Should you go with your head or your heart?
*
A new take on Pavlov's dog ... from the dog's POV.
*
This one is for the musicians and the gamers - a truly comprehensive look at irregular meter in video games (complete with sound bites!)
*
Finally, a few interesting facts about unusual dog breeds. (Being a cat person, I can't believe how many dog-related links I have this week!)
