Happy Friday, everyone! Go watch or read Obama's speech if you haven't already. It's a ray of hope as the long holiday weekend begins. Today we feature a chance to make your opinion known, a bunch of great links from Cassandra, and some other links I've been saving up over the past few weeks.

First off, from Bunny: ever wanted to have some input on a website design? Now you can! His college is working on a website revamp and has several different layout options. Check them out here and then vote for your favorite one here. You can even explain why you chose the one you did.

From Cassandra: the Virgin Mary has been spotted in a Canadian tree trunk, a pre-Incan mummy has been discovered in Peru, scientists discover that elephants know math, a list of the 25 best alternative bands of the '90s (I knew 24 of them, but Giant Sand was a total unknown to me), and a look back at alleged heretic Giordano Bruno.

Interesting links from around the web: See how you would look in a yearbook from past decades. (I tried this and looked like a complete mess, no matter what year it was; perhaps you will have more luck!) For more nostalgia, check out this list of forgotten candy from the '80s. I had no idea most of these had even disappeared.

More sugary weirdness awaits you at CakeWrecks! I like the mummy cake, actually. The rest are just bizarre. This interactive map of prescription drug abuse over the last decade may point to the origins of some of the cake designs. And finally, here's another list - this one documents the best fictional sports of all time. Of course, Calvinball is included. Hooray!

Have a spiffy weekend, everyone. Have a great holiday if you're in the U.S., and stay safe if you're in hurricane territory. See you Tuesday.
