Look, It's Random Links!

Because it's been quite a while since I did one of these posts...

Check Out 'Life on Mars': Trailer for the upcoming US version of Life on Mars. Colm Meany, not much to my surprise, appears capable of doing a perfectly good Gene Hunt. Everything else about this, however, makes my brain hurt. And did they actually just say, "in a world turned upside-down?" Has that not become too cliche to use yet?

Powder Game: Not really a game, more of a fascinating web toy... thingy. I remember linking to a different version of this ages and ages ago, but this one has even more features to distract you from whatever it is you ought to be doing. Don't worry about the badly-translated instructions; just have fun playing around.

The 6 Most Badass Stunts Ever Pulled in the Name of Science: Do not try these at home!

Weather Underground photo gallery: Socorro: I sometimes complain about living here in the middle of nowhere, but the truth is that this place can be really, really pretty. As these photos taken by various people in my general area aptly prove. There's a heavy emphasis on weather, but then it is a weather-related website.

1001 Things Mr. Raymond Can't Do When He GMs: Will probably give the tabletop gamers among you a chuckle or two. And make absolutely zero sense to anybody else.


  1. It's been eons (aeons? ions?) since I did any gaming, but Mr. Raymond still had me struggling not to guffaw so loud as to alert my co-workers I wuzn't working on programming chores [grin]...

  2. Yeah, I haven't gamed in ages, either, and a number of items on that list refer to games I'm not all that familiar with, but I still found it kind of hysterical. :)

  3. I found the pictures of Socorro really entertaining and there are hundreds to go thru. You know my penchant for photography, so you also know that i really enjoyed them. Thanks for the link

  4. They really impressed me, too, and, yeah, there are a lot of them.

    Glad you liked!
