I Hope You Know There Never Was a Party At All

For those of you not familar with the weblog community (though chances are you already are if you're reading this) many blogs are just filters in a way. A blog finds the most interesting stories, tidbits, videos, and other fun 'clicks' and compiles them in one handy dandy place. In fact, chances are if you've clicked some neat link from a blog, it was probably already discovered by another blog, and that blog might have even gotten it from another blog. So in that sense, it truly is a community. Many of the links I will or have already provided on this site were first talked about elsewhere. In fact, many of them come from the blog links to the right and if they don't I'll try my best to give credit where credit is do. So without further ado, I shall end my rambling and provide cool links that indubitably originated elsewhere. Enjoy.

Pink snow in Russia. Scientists speculate Mongolian sand storms are to blame. This apparently follows yellow, oily russian snow in February most likely caused from pollution. It seems, however, that pink snow isn't all that uncommon. "Watermelon snow", as it's been coined, is a phenomenon that occurs in Colorado and is supposedly due to an algae.

The Abu Ghraib Files (via Salon). "279 photographs and 19 videos from the Army's internal investigation record a harrowing three months of detainee abuse inside the notorious prison -- and make clear that many of those responsible have yet to be held accountable." Be warned that some of those images and/or video could be graphic.

artst.org has high resolution images of works from four different famous artists. Here's to hoping they get more.

The Wooden Periodic Table Table. The site's a little hectically designed it seems, but this is an actual table periodic elements including samples and all.

South Park's Chef quits the show. Isaac Hayes says it's due to religious reasons. Hayes is a devout scientologist and the Comedy Central show recently aired an episode poking fun at the religion. Of course, anyone who's watched South Park knows they've poked fun at pretty much every religion including christianity, judaism, and mormonism. I think this quote from one of the two South Park creators Matt Stone sums it up well: "He wants different standards for religions other than his own, and to me, that is where intolerance and bigotry begin." Well said my man.
