Sunday Burst of Weird and AWESOME!

Oddities and Awesome abound!

:: I've taken a liking to this ad for Johnnie Walker Scotch whiskey:

There's some really good timing there. Kudos to Robert Carlyle, who has been a favorite of mine ever since The Full Monty.

:: Neat-o-rama has a post on dams in the movies that is, well, neat. They left out my favorite dam in a movie, though: the Russian dam in the teaser sequence of Goldeneye. (Which is actually the Verzasca Dam in Switzerland, but hey, if we can't relocate it to Russia for a plot point, what good is it?)

:: Watch the International Space Station transit across the Sun:

But why is it moving so fast? Phil Plait explains.

More next week!
