Linkology: The Best of the Internet for 2/18/11

by Jeff V. on February 18, 2011

I’m going to experiment with a new format for our Friday posts for a while.  Instead of jamming a collection of links into a list to let you sort out, mainly through clicking on them, I’m going to jam a collection of links into a list with section headers because it looks much more impressive.  And maybe, somewhere in this foggy notion I have in my mind right now, it will help you make sense of the links I’m curating.  This idea is shamelessly stolen and modified The Daily What.  Remember, great artists steal!

So here goes.  Watch.

Up for some pretty downright scary bedtime reading?  Reddit once again comes through with a thread entitled What’s the creepiest thing you’ve seen or heard in real life?
