Friday’s back in town! And not a moment too soon.

Link time…

» 100,000 Stars

A Google Chrome experiment which plots the location (using astrometric databases and catalogues) of 100,000 “nearby” stars.
Beautiful.
Note: called a Chrome experiment because it predominantly works in the Chrome web browser.

» 2012 Photomicrography Competition: Winners

Another year, another “Cosmarium sp. (desmid) near a Sphagnum sp. leaf (100x)”
Quite beautiful.

» No Pattern Required: Sara’s Dream TV – The Kuba Komet!

This is the craziest vintage TV I think I’ve ever seen. I wonder if their creators are still around. Insane.

» GIRP

Another challenging game from the creators of QWOP and CLOP (both previously featured on the Friday Links.)
Sent along by Gino F. Great find.

Bonus Link!

» Literally Unbelievable

“Stories from The Onion as interpreted by Facebook”
I’m finding more and more frequently there’s a portion of the population who have no idea that The Onion is not a genuine news website. It’s kind of funny / sad.

Have a great weekend everybody. And remember: Only 39 shopping days until Xmas…

Happy Friday.
