The Weekend Links

Image credit: 

From Jan, a link to the highly addicting Who Wants to Be a Millionaire game online. No need to wait for others to hem and haw over obvious answers while you scream at your TV, and you still get the lifeline options (which are more helpful then on the actual show). Can anyone win $1 million? I can't get past 50,000 so far.

Need something to watch this weekend? Take some inspiration from this list of the 20 best animated movies ever. Though these lists are always highly debatable and somewhat arbitrary, I mostly agree with their choices (especially because it's not totally Disney/Pixar dominated ... although they have quite a few!). (Thanks Sarah!)
*
So apparently, Al Franken can draw the U.S. from memory. Can't be that hard, right? The writers and some readers from Lemondrop do their best attempts and make me wonder ... it must be harder than it looks! If you want to make your own attempt, send it to me and I'll post it next week!
*
Is this the Best News Blooper Ever? Probably not, although it is pretty funny. Remember kids: always pause after introducing yourself before launching into a strange news story.
*

Amazing Graffiti Art by Banksy.

*
Spoooooky: 12 Real-Life Haunted Destinations.
*
Is it already time to start thinking about Summer blockbusters for 2010? Hold on to your seats for ... Facebook - The Movie! For now, check out this "exclusive" storyboard peek, as performed by appropriately un-emotive Playmobile toys.
*
Craigslist has a never-ending supply of goods and services as well as, well ... freaks and the bizarre. Regarding the latter, here are 20 of the craziest postings on Craigslist.

*
Space ... now in color! The new and improved Hubble is already sending back some amazing pictures - see the comparisons for yourself!
*
This is an old link that came up again, but it's just so funny I have to re-post: "Reporter Finds Fake Bear Is Better Than the Real Thing."
*
According to this video, there are other, more "personal" advantages to buying a Prius besides environmental ones ... although I'm dubious!
*
A fun way to flip through Fall Fashions A-Z with Elle's guide of fashion ... A to Zee!
I like sites like this that are super easy to use, with lots of pretty!
*
From CollegeHumor, the six kids you grew up with.
*
Frankly, I do not know what this is, but if anyone can figure it out, let me know!
*
Apparently it's possible to make nails seem almost ... human? "The Life of Nails" is a creative photography project by Vlad Artazov.
*
Further mysteries revealed (maybe): Sweet smelling sweat keeps mosquitoes at bay.
*
How do you get from one side of a cliff to another without a bridge? Draw your way across!
*
For those of you who, like me, might have had a stressful week, Fail Blog always makes me feel a little bit better about myself and hopefully it will work for you, too! (unless you're on it ... in which case let us know!)
