Product placement in cinema is nothing new, and the folks over at Film Drunk have put together a nice little mashup of the most egregious offenders.

Your weekly dose of cute (in the category of Look but Don't Touch!) - a rescue porcupine who thinks he's a dog.

Slate.com offers up some fun interactive maps that illustrate 15 Years of UFO Sightings - the who, the where and the what.

Celebrities - they're just like us! Some of them even read: check out some of these enviable Libraries of the Rich and Famous (did anyone check to see if some of those books are just covers only? Just sayin' …)

I put out a call for reader blogs last week and got a landslide of responses! Glad to know there are so many talented among you - I always knew it! Here are a few I picked out for this week: I'll start off with Meghan and Lucas who have a food blog called He Cooked / She Cooked and yes, they force you to pick a side (not pun intended ... I don't think).

Flosser Teralyn sent in her blog about being a writer (that includes advice, prompts and the occasional funny story)!
*
Reader Megan submitted two links this week, one for artist Ben Heine who creates some pretty amazing pencil drawings and then overlays them in landscape photographs.
*
The second one is a blog from her coworker called "Should I Go See It?" He keeps it short - yes or no, plus a one-line review. As someone who used to write what we called "short subs" for the local paper, I know it's hard (but appreciated by readers) to be so superbly succinct. Well done!

Finally, a special Flossy notice: mental_floss contributor Joe Hennes also writes for Tough Pigs ("Muppet Fans Who Grew Up"), and they're holding a trivia night in Brooklyn later this month. Go here for details.

A big thanks to everyone who sent in links this week! (Especially to everyone who sent in their blogs, and apologies I ran out of room to feature them all this time around). As always, remember that you can send you submissions to FlossyLinks@gmail.com, or drop me a tweet @FlossyAlli on Twitter!
