Cool Stuff Friday
For Christmas this year I want more Fridays and more cool stuff. And also a movie deal.
- Animals with Stuffed Animals.
- Animated gifs of various chemical reactions. (Found on Diane Duane’s Tumblr) Because science is awesome!
- Instructions for making TARDIS, Star Wars, Mario, and other Christmas ornaments out of LEGO. (Found via the Mary Sue) Um … if you need me, I’ll be digging through our LEGO supplies, looking for blue bricks.
- The True Shape of Snowflakes. 3-D photos/scans of snowflakes before they hit the ground. Also see MASC’s Snowflake Showcase.
- Cookie Monster in Sesame Street’s Lord of the Rings Parody.
- Back when I was a kid, our paper airplanes — oh, who am I kidding. I WANT TO TURN MY PAPER AIRPLANES INTO SMARTPHONE-CONTROLLED PLANES TOO!
- Photos of dogs taking their first ride to their new homes after being in shelters. (Found via David Wohlreich)
- And finally, a video of a crow using a mayonnaise lid as an impromptu sled.

Wow… the crow just blows the mind. On one hand, anyone who pays attention knows that animals love to play. But to watch the crow put such ingenuity and effort into getting its kicks is crazy… and reaffirms my faith not in man, but in life itself.
