Another Linkdump

A word about Wowio: Let's let Scott Sava of Dreamland Chronicles tell you about it. In short, free and legal downloads of various books and comics, and the publishers get paid when you download them. My only complaint is that they are all PDF only, which is a sucky format. I'd much prefer CBR for comics.

Recent Aquaman references on The Simpsons (self-link).

A 24-hour comic: Everything You Never Wanted To Know About Crohns Disease.

Oooh, looking forward to Dramacon 3!

The winners of Pimp My Bookcart 2007. My favorites are the Mystery Machine and the Yellow Submarine.

Heh, Futurama Al Gore. Heh.

25 Photographs Taken at the Exact Right Time. While most of them are very cool, the look on the face of the photographer about to be run over by a football player is classic.

Jamming Cell Phones (NYTimes). Illegal, but sometimes so tempting.

Dog is Gun.

Whoa. Jabba the Hutt costume. Too big, too much. But funny.

Steampunk Laptop. WOW.

Common surnames began as insulting nicknames. "Both the English names Nott and Cave probably described someone who was bald. A Barrett was a fraud, a Mallory someone unlucky and a Purcell a little pig. In France, a Bechard was a gossip."

Cats: TacocaT, Lazor Cats, and Gossipping Kittehs.
