Here they are:

  • Ludicrous – How about a software glitch releasing inmates early? Okay, so it does happen. What if it was happening since 2002?
  • Useful – Last year lifehacker put up a list of MacGyver tips. In my opinion, the best of the bunch is Tokyo Disaster Preparedness Guide
  • Music
  • PhotoGeminid Meteors over Xinglong Observatory
  • Yours (Something from the web’s social networks)- I got this list of translation errors years ago, but it was well worth a repost.
  • Science – We have all seen images of the solar system. However, it is unlikely that you have ever seen one to scale. On Christmas Day, the Astronomy Photo of the Day (APOD) put up a a video of some folks creating a scale model in the desert. I shared the video after the break. You even get to hear from some of the Apollo astronauts at the end.

Yup, I am late again. Sorry, but the non-cyber world has me way too busy. It will slow down soon though.

Nonetheless, here they are:

  • Ludicrous – Check out the latest adventure of Bud Weisser
  • Useful – I was actually having a hard time with this one this week. Until I went to my To Do list. Check out Workflowy
  • Music – I knew it was going to be the one the instant I saw it. The Libertarian version of Star Wars. Watch it after the break below.
  • Photo – While this one is a bit dated, it is still worth a post. ¬†Check out this pulse from a black hole.
  • Yours (Something tweeted to me or emailed)- I hit on this one in #blaster channel on the Geekshed IRC Network, the top animals of 2015.
  • Science – This week my pick is a nifty Anaptar Calendar. This calendar lets you explore the solar system all 366 days of 2016.

2015.11.30 – Lumpy’s Links

Lumpy’s Links for 2015.11.30

I know I am a day late …better late than never.

Here they are:

  • Ludicrous – There is no limit to what criminals do. Sometimes stupid, sometimes creative, always wrong, too often hurtful, and, in this case, simply strange. After realizing a child was in a car they stole, they dropped the kid off at school!
  • Useful – While you are going to have use Google translate, this is a list of the most returned items. In other words, stuff not to buy.
  • Music – While I grew up with MTv, the truth is most music videos are not that great. Here is a Red Lips cover that is just off the hook! GTA – Red Lips. Kudos to io9 for the find.
  • PPhoto – I totally agree with io9, the US Navy nailed The Force Awakens with the best spoof to date
  • Yours – Nothing this week
  • Science – The article refers to it as Flower Power, a circuit inside a rose!

Lumpy’s Links for 2015.11.22

Greetings Reader,

Thank you for checking out the first list of weekly links I have shared in a good while.

Here they are:

  • Ludicrous – While I am all for freedom of religion, wearing a spaghetti strainer helmet for you driver’s license photo, in my humble opinion, is ludicrous. Although I confess, she looks happy in the photo.
  • Useful – I find TweetDeck the ONLY way to use Twitter, without it, the 1K+ tweeps I follow would be nothing but noise. This article at at The Verge explains how to use the filters.
  • Music – Alice Cooper plays a suprise gig. (some video is embedded below)
  • PPhoto – Most likely, this bright streak, is from the¬†Taurids meteor shower. Regardless, it is a great photo.
  • Yours (Something tweeted to me or emailed) – This being the first one in a long while, to date, I have received nothing.
  • Science – How about using plasma to grow diamonds?
  • I had to mention this one as a bonus. It is just a really kewl looking Alien

Since it has been a while since I have published one of these and also the week of Thanksgiving here are a few links for the black shopping days. I originally heard of or found all of these and many more useful tips, hacks and tricks Lifehacker.
