In general, I am loathe to put a lot of links on this blog because a lot of them just die faster than the speed of meme. But sometimes I come across stuff that I could share on Twitter or Facebook, but that’s a lot of work keeping track of all of that, and someone important in my life could miss out on something that I thought was important for a nanosecond or two.

But then I was going through some old posts on Wil Wheaton’s blog (okay, I admit it, I was going through the “Games” category), and came across a link to a blog called Dubious Quality by a guy named Bill Harris, who does a post of links every Friday.

What a great idea,” I thought to myself. “I am totally stealing that.”

I don’t know that I’ll get around to releasing one of these every Friday, but whatever comes up will be available every Friday at 3:00 pm (UTC-4), so you’ll have plenty to talk about at happy hour. This first one is, obviously, late. I was actually hesitant to do this, but then I found the WP Lynx plugin, which provides a really cool way to include links to other sites in your blog, so yeah, I’m going ahead with this.

And just to get things going, I’m borrowing this link from Bill, about a drunk Swedish elk caught in an apple tree. If you don’t see the problem in that, here’s a story about a drunken elk who committed murder.

Impress your friends by handing them a Grace Hopper nanosecond.

Look at some completely pointless flyers. You can also look at flyers that make fun of other flyers.

I think I dated this woman. More than once.

I’m not sure how I missed this one from the Bloggess.

I like this picture:

This has got to be the coolest Pac Man incarnation ever. I wish it were real:
