Hittin' the Links

It's been a while since I threw some links on here.  I hope you enjoy a few of these that struck my fancy!

First, I think you might enjoy this fun and addicting "Rube Goldberg Game" by Google. I hope it comes to the iPhone someday.

I love this - a guy in a wheelchair stops a robbery in a convenience store while others stand around watching.

A man from Holland spent one million dollars to build a working replica of Noah's Ark. It is built to scale and the ship is huge. It weighs 3,000 tons, is 450 feet long, holds 1,500 passengers, and needs a steel hull for reinforcement. However, there is one major difference between this and the real thing: the article says that "besides people, there's room for two live chickens and some replica animals for effect."  TWO CHICKENS!?!

Hey, dads!  Are you embarrassing your children regularly enough?  You do know that it is one of your primary objectives, don't you?  Here's one dad who does it as well as any father ever and turned it into an art form!

You may have seen the video of the kid who rode his bike and then sent a motivational message to all other kids. If not, the first video on this page is that video. Below the original video is the same message used in a slightly similar but familiar (and amusing) way.

Some cities really go all-out to promote themeselves!  I can't believe the effort the people of Grand Rapids put forth to make this really cool video.

The world's fastest clapper - that's all!
