Linkfest 3

Tricksters, that's what todays linkfest will focus on.

To start off with we have the folks from a bunch of pranksters who show that mad science is fun. Not to mention obsessive compulsive disorders which force you to measure and document how much is inside things. If nothing else you might answer that burning question to how long a line of cheese wiz is inside that can.

Next up is Improv Everywhere a bunch of people who, well, cause scenes. But in a positive way, and I think one that they should be lauded for. Such pranks as bringing desktops to Starbucks, city tours in a fountain, and impersonating U2 to give a free concert, just to name a few examples. My favorite mission is the Moebius strip.

Thirdly, we have American Gods by Neil Gaiman which is now up online as a free e-book. Without giving too much away if you haven't read it(and if you haven't, what are you waiting for, go, read), tricksters, con men, and slight of hand galore fill this story. A full review is for another time, but suffice to say that it's one of the best world as myth yarns in our day.

Of course, once our tricks run out and we have to head for the road...why not do it in style? Check out this list of the Ten Best Post-Apocalyptic Survival Vehicles and start preparing for the zombocalypse today! It's got some good advice and solid points....Though I personally might not agree with all their choices. Dammit! To my undeath I'll fight for my right to keep and bear M1A2 Abrams for home defense against zombies. Well, I can't exactly bear it, operate it maybe, but it's better than nothing.

Finally, we get some good advice from Sam, the resident trickster of the webcomic Freefall. Big archive, but very funny, definitly worth checking out.

As an aside that doesn't fit the theme. This deserves a link through good comic, funny person, bad luck. Now I'm not trying to force anything, but the comics are worth a read, and probably a few bucks tossed into the donation jar.

Now, a little status report. March is looking to be a busy month, but significantly less so than the last one, hopefully the updates will stabilize and we can get rolling on some good stuff. As always, feel free to comment and I'll talk at y'all next time.
