Random Link Thursday

Hello and welcome to Random Link Thursday. Betcha didn't know there was such a thing, did you? Neither did I.

From the best brother in the whole wide world (and no, I don't want anything) comes this tidbit about a very hot, one-of-a-kind car that just set a new record. Sorry that I didn't win the lottery yet in order to get that one for you, bro.

In case you hadn't noticed, we're only weeks away from the premiere of the final Star Wars movie. Yes, "Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith" opens May 19th and the giant Star Wars marketing machine has rumbled to life in full force. (Did you know that the best brother in the whole wide world (nope, still not asking for anything) even got a Darth Tater for his recent birthday?) Perhaps you've also heard that people are already waiting in line for tickets to the opening, even if they are, um, like, waiting at the wrong theatre. Our friend Keeme recently interviewed one of the waitees on his podcast and it's a great listen.

For all the geeks out there, here's a nice little animation to help explain a technical development to your dense (and easily amused) friends.

Ever wished you could give someone a hug, long-distance? Well, now you can...sort of. Lit up, it looks neat; unlit it's a vaguely disturbing cross between dental and phallic imagery.

Lastly (because Blogger is being a complete pain in the ass again -- preventing me from actually posting this until Friday morning, in fact -- and I'm getting tired of having to recreate what is getting lost), here is the ultimate search engine for those of you who can't decide between Yahoo! and Google: Yagoohoo!gle
