Here, Have Some More Random Links

Neil Gaiman's "I, Cthulhu": Read the ancient lurking horror's true autobiography, directly from its own lips! Or tentacles, or something. Neil Gaiman is a brilliant, twisted man, but you probably already knew that.

At last, the Japanese have answered the burning eternal question: How many kilograms of fish can a housecat carry? This is the funniest, most bizarrely fascinating thing I've seen in ages. And it's perfectly comprehensible whether you speak Japanese or not. Well, OK, maybe "comprehensible" really isn't the word...

Journey to a Black Hole: A nifty little interactive thingy that lets you take a virtual visit to a black hole. Well-presented and fun to play around with, with lots of interesting facts on black holes offered both on the "journey" and on other parts of the website.

  2. I don't know if you remember, but I remember you teaching me to count to five in Japanese when I was a little kid. And I still remember! So I did catch some of the numbers.
