August 8th! If you are from China, that makes today lucky, apparently. So… hooray!

But I am not from China so… UNlucky? (I hope not…)

But in the meantime: Friday Links!!!1!

» earth :: an animated map of global wind and weather

“a visualization of global weather conditions
forecast by supercomputers
updated every three hours”
(Also, I am a weather nerd.)

» The Brick Fantastic: 50 States of Lego

Jeff Friesen creates Lego dioramas for all 50 United States. They’re whimsical, detailed and clever.
He’s also done Great White North for Canada.

» 25 Creative Buildings Around The World

[self explanatory]
More lists, I know. But some of these are pretty great!
Suggested by Alison L.

» Lucky Duckies

An exceptionally challenging little flash game. Addictive! (And frequently heartbreaking.)
Sent along by Crys H.

Bonus Link!

» The Abyss Table by Duffy

This was making the rounds for a while but it’s still absolutely gorgeous. (And frikkin’ expensive, at $5,800 USD! DO NOT put your coffee on that, Sir or Madam!!)
A really unique, beautiful piece of art / furniture.

Have a happy (*LUCKY*) Friday!

See you in 7 days.
