three cool links for your Friday

Unless you’re on the other side of the planet from me, in which case I think it isn’t Friday for you anymore.

The Justice League of America, Magnificent Seven-style — Superman and Wonder Woman and so on translated into Japanese film idioms.

The most awesome Fallout LARP ever — played on an abandoned base near St. Petersburg, Russia, which makes a fabulous atmosphere for a post-apocalyptic game. The costumes are even more fabulous, and the lengths they went to for setting up challenges . . . jaw-dropping. Just page down to look at the pictures, and know that your own LARP group? Is not this cool. (Unless you’re a member of Albion.)

How cats drink — “‘Three and a half years ago, I was watching Cutta Cutta lap over breakfast,’ Dr. Stocker said. Naturally, he wondered what hydrodynamic problems the cat might be solving.” The answer is pretty amazing.

    Ummm, also, this quote from the cat-drinking article: “The project required no financing. The robot that mimicked the cat’s tongue was built for an experiment on the International Space Station, and the engineers simply borrowed it from a neighboring lab.” — This article basically came from the Big Bang Theory

    That is a seriously awesome LARP.

    I am in awe of my former countrymen and -women.

    Also, if you look carefully at the robber photos, some of those guns are definitely not mock-ups…
