Sunday Burst of Weird and Awesome!

Oddities and Awesome abound!

:: Cracked.com has yet another fine item up: a list of the Five Most Excessively Manly Hobbies In The World. I'd seen one of them before -- the "skysuit" item -- but the other four caught me unawares. I'll only spoil one of them: Glacier surfing. This is when you use a surfboard to ride the enormous waves that occur when giant chunks of glacier ice break free and fall into the ocean.

:: Here's an amazing series of time-lapse photographs showing the Milky Way rising over the landscapes of South Dakota.

:: Guy goes outside to wave at his kid's schoolbus when it goes by, every morning, the entire school year. With costumes. And the kid is sixteen years old. Guffaw.

More next week!
