As the end of the year approaches, the weblog abandons the themed days and offers up a mishmash of links. Whee! (We'll get back on track in 2010.)|
Make your own Star Wars Lego figure! I made a steampunk-looking Leia. If you're into the combo of LEGO and Star Wars (and who isn't?), you should also check out the amazing photography of Avanaut. (Bonus Indiana Jones shots, too!)
Zazoo sent in this photo essay on the impromptu snowball fight that took place in Times Square over the weekend. Good stuff.
How well do you know your Christmas myths and history? There's a quiz, of course.
The NORAD Santa tracker is using Google Earth again this year, and is also featuring a countdown and all sorts of extras.
A minister in North Yorkshire advised a congregation to shoplift this season. Well, sort of.
Lastly: a lot of people land on this site via a search for info on Franz Reichelt, the unfortunate would-be flyer who plummeted to his death about a hundred years ago. (A Folderol entry long ago linked to the grainy footage of his adventure.) Now, with modern "wingsuits," it looks as if Franz's dream might finally become reality. Wow.
