This weekend means Labor Day mania here at home (especially in Cincinnati, where the fireworks go off nonstop for a while), but if you're in the Netherlands you can avoid the pyrotechnics and see the Flower Parade instead!

If you're in London, on the other hand, you might want to check out this fellow's hierarchy of Tube lines and see if they match up with your own opinions.

If you can't go on a trip this weekend, you can go on an interactive one, at least! Take a look at this fantastic map of famous journeys (including Phileas Fogg's Around the World in 80 Days path).

Many thanks to Nicole for pointing out that the Attack of the B Movies has begun! Yes, we're already celebrating Halloween in August. Woohoo!

Current spookiness: the military is putting some serious funding into telepathic research. Eeep.

Past spookiness: the Hamilton family of Winnipeg took dozens of photographs documenting their interest in spiritualism and the occult, and the images were then donated to the University of Manitoba. Now anyone can see them, and they're quite wonderful.

Anonymous Cassie: I LOVED the pictures of the Hamilton family. Just goes to show ya how people found interesting ways to entertain themselves before television. Wow.
