Let go of My lego
One of the things I like best about the Web is its constant reaffiramtion that there are plenty of people out there with way too much time on their hands. For proof look no further than this Lego fanatics site. He's reconstructed several Escher prints out of Lego's. Granted, it's not Lord of the Rings reenacted with Peeps scale time wasting like we saw a few issues ago, but then few things are. It's totally frivolous, and totally cool.
No Matter how you Slice it, it's pretty Gross
Plastination is a process where people can be preserved whole. The process essentially converts the tissue to plastic by using way more chemisty than we have space (or desire) to get into here. The resulting specimens can then be thinly sliced to allow the gross (in mutiple senses) anatomy to be seen. This site has an anatomy tutorial using plastinated specimens. It's rather creepy and yet I just couldn't stop clicking.
Welcome to the most horrifying place on the internet
The plastination web site is creepy, rotten.com is just plain disgusting. Truly not for the faint of heart, it features tons of pictures (which is a lot
considering how much a jpg weighs) of motorcycle accidents, decomposing bodies, decapitations, train wrecks, disembowelings, etc. You know, all those little things that add a bit of sunshine to your day. If you can stomach it, it is pretty fascinating stuff, and it pretty effectively drives home the point that we're all just big bags of meat.
Welcome to the 2nd most horrifying place on the internet
The home page of the right wing Fox News Network, this site is horrifying in a whole different way. The subtle (and at times not so subtle) spin placed on the facts here to serve W's agenda is pretty galling. This should help dispel the ridiculous notion that there is a left wing bias in news. Let's face it kids, the news in the States is business now. Get your news from the BBC or other international sources.
