Weekend Links – 11.5.10

5 Nov

Hello, and happy weekend everyone! This is an especially happy weekend for me, since I finished my midterms! Whoooo! (If anyone was wondering why I’ve been M.I.A. these past couple of weeks, that is why.)

Excitingly enough (for me at least), I get to use  this weekend to catch up on my feed reader (1000+ new posts, oh my!) so I’m going to share the wealth with you guys! So here’s an extra-special collection of things for you all to read! Enjoy!

◊ The Flickr Blog collected images from the Masskara Festival that takes place in the Philippines. The pictures are amazing and gorgeous – I’d love to go someday!

◊ Apparently processed meats have been declared too dangerous for human consumption. Worth a read.

◊ While I can appreciate simplicity, I like to dip my toes in the pool of ridiculousness every once in a while. This Disneyworld-esque theme park recently opened India. Guess who would go in a heartbeat?

◊ Many people avoid ambitious goals because of possible failure. But what would you do if you knew you would not fail? Chris Guillebeau wants to know.

◊ I’ve never participated in Black Friday (waking up early to fight people over marked down televisions doesn’t appeal to me, but different strokes, I guess) but a town has enacted ordinances against Black Friday mayhem. Let’s hope it works!

◊ Do you have a bacn problem – the inbox clutter that isn’t spam because you signed up for it? Lifehacker has a possible solution for you.

◊ This, I’m just posting for the pretty. Enjoy.

◊ Ever feel like Wile E. Coyote and creativity is your Roadrunner? (Okay, maybe not the best analogy.) Here are some brain exercises to help you out.

◊ These hyper-realistic paintings are trippy – it’s hard to tell what’s real and what isn’t!

◊ It’s a little late for Halloween, but just in time for the rest of autumn, here are some fantastically decorated pumpkins!

◊ Also posted just for the pretty, images from China’s Fashion Week.

◊ One of my favorite magazines, Wired Magazine, has their own mini university “curriculum”, where they teach the things you never learn in college.

◊ Have you ever had l’spirit d’escalier, or staircase wit, where you come up with the perfect comeback…after it’s already too late? Unicorns for Socialism has the hook up.

Any sweet links on your end? Drop in the comments.

xoxo, Tara
