Friday again!

And the end of May. Wah. But very soon: Summer! (in my hemisphere.)

So: links!!

Are You Good Enough to Be a Tennis Line Judge?

“Watch a series of shots on a clay court and decide whether each was in or out. You only get one chance and five seconds to make the call. Good luck!”

Extremely difficult. (To me.) Made by the Wall Street Journal to celebrate the French Open, which is my real indication that Summer is here at last.

Mark Dingo Francisco: Wes Anderson Postcards

Mark Dingo Francisco: Wes Anderson Postcards

“A tribute to Wes Anderson, and his ability to inspire.”

Mark is a Brooklyn-based designer and obviously pretty talented. The rest of his site is worth a peek as well. Nicely done.


A fully functional 14-foot kayak that breaks down into a backpack-sized carrier weighing about 55 pounds. This is a Kickstarter and another pretty interesting product idea. Love it.

Similar but different: GoBoat.


A surprisingly challenging driving sim. The camera makes me a little woozy but I found it really addictive. Maybe you will too.

Bonus Link!


“FOAAS (F*ck Off As A Service) provides a modern, RESTful, scalable solution to the common problem of telling people to f*ck off.”

Nerdy yes. Useful: sort of. Funny: absolutely. This must have taken quite a bit of man hours to refine.

Finally I tripped across an oddly funny, smart, fascinating podcast called My Favorite Murder which I recommend, with the caveat that the topic is (indeed) murder, so I recognize that it may not be for everybody.

And there we go! Friday: Sorted!

See you in a week, Friday People!
