Hi! We've got all sorts of stuff today for the Friday Links from Others post.

First off, though, I've got a question. The Internet Librarian conference talked about Facebook constantly. Is Facebook where it's at these days? Should I set up a profile? Is it worth it?

On to the links. Thanks, everyone!

From Bunny: there were zombies in ancient Egypt, oh yes there were, and we should all start preparing now for future attacks. (Bunny is well ahead of the curve on this one, as anyone who knows him can tell you.)

From both Bunny and Cassandra: the bizarre story about the toys laced with GHB. Oops.

From Cassandra: a story about the astronomers searching for new planets, a look into why the Onion is possibly the most successful newspaper out there at the moment, and news about a remarkable genetic test that can help predict the cause of your eventual death. I totally want to take this test, by the way.

From Holly: the GigaBall, almost as cool as zorbing - and more affordable!

From Brendan: the future of reading, with a sidebar containing tons of cool links.

From Tim: a map of UFO hotspots around the country. Arguments about the map's validity can be found in the comments. Also swiped from Tim's weblog: a readability test for websites. Like Tim, my site is readable at a junior high level. Woohoo!

From a mailing list: James Blunt rewrites his "Beautiful" song to sing about triangles on Sesame Street. He gets major points for this in my book.

Translation: I am considered neurotypical, if rather introverted and slightly weird. The comments on Scalzi's entry are interesting as well, and worth a look.

Have a spiffy weekend, everyone! See you Monday.

Anonymous Cassandra: It said:

You seem to have both Aspie and neurotypical traits.

What's that supposed to mean? Talk about wishy-washy! EESH!

So, why is walking on your tip toes considered, uh, strange?

Have a good weekend!

2:28 PM  
Anonymous Satori: I also have "Aspie and neurotypical traits." Must be my slight OCD, my right/left issues and my gathering of useless knowledge that put me there. :)

I pulled back on a lot of the questions though because I do a much better job in social situations for work than I do personally...

I think I just try a lot harder to fit in during the 9-5 and don't try as hard to hide the weird things with my friends and family.

3:05 PM  
Anonymous Cassandra: I know! Work does force me to behave more like a regular person. Most times, anyway.

Maybe, we are just extremely adaptable?

7:07 PM  
Blogger Dawn: Yes. Facebook is where it's at.
Yes. You should set up an account.
No. It's not worth it.

Then you try Virb, and if you're like me you won't like any of them very much and you'll end up at tumblr. ;)
