The Link Dump Who Came in From the Cold

August 12th, 2011 by Cobwebs

Disalmanac – Twitter feed and accompanying blog with amusing “on this date” information, such as, “Today in 1788, New Hampshire became a state. You don’t want to know what happened to the Old Hampshire. Trust us. It’s pretty gruesome.” (Hat tip to Empress Pam)

12 Creepiest Abandoned Prisons on Earth – Lots of haunting photos. Urban explorers are made of sterner stuff than I will ever be.

Adorable Naked Mole Rat Snacking on Fruit – It is too adorable. Shut up.

Sad Etsy Boyfriends – Tumblr site documenting the plight of boyfriends being made to model Etsy merchandise.

Inside Haitian Vodou – Interesting photogallery at Life. (Some graphic animal-sacrifice photos.)

My Life as a White Trash Zombie – Novel (the first in a series) about a zombie who works in a morgue. The author discusses her “big idea” at Whatever.

Spider Silk Textile – Article about an insanely time-consuming fabric made of spider silk. (Hat tip to pdq)

Jason Voorhees Body Count – Infographic of everyone Jason has killed in the Friday the 13th series.

Creepy-Ass Dolls – As this book’s description puts it, “There’s a reason they were kept in the toybox.”

Ringbearer of the Day – A Four Weddings contestant had “Gollum” as their ringbearer. This is equal parts hilarious and disturbing.
