Stuff

USB Mini Desktop Aquarium. I quite fancy one of these.

I've booked us 6 tickets for the NewLinks trip into space.

3D Ascii art.

The Strange Mechanism Museum. Strange indeed.

Those aqariums look familiar from a while ago -- you can't keep a good link down (or in Japan, it seems)!

Can't wait to "jawnee inter spayus" though! Thanks, ILN!

Note: don't get pissed before the flight - throwing up in zero-G will NOT be pretty...

/me wanders off wondering how we made it to Mars and yet can't remember... (... but the camera never lies!)

OK then Mr. Re-post. I thought we were gonna let this lie. What about your godfather horse head pillow? New Links: ILuvNUFC's rubbish round up. Just days earlier...

Either we are going to stick to not pointing them out or I'm starting playing again. So do we point out dupes or not?

If we are going back to pointing them out I've got a HUGE backlog to mock! :)

... except I wasn't complaining it was a repost.

In fact, I specifically noted the original pointed to a Japanese source.

I'm all for letting it lie as I'm probably the most guilty ( apart from Merg ;))
I managed to keep quiet until my re-post was pointed out.

mC: I don't see the point -- I was mostly making the point that something that originated in Japan (and has been noted here) had now appeared in the west -- I thought it was interesting that we'd noted it originally and it'd since "crossed over", as it were.

I guess I'll stick to being snarky and posting essays on old video games though...

I just wanted a go if everyone else was. :)

I like to go for the smug effect when doing a "look it's being reported elsewhere" by starting with "As we posted months ago..."!

/matter quietly dropped. And I didn't get a turn. Pah! :)
