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.
