It turns out it’s HARD keeping to a regular schedule sometimes.
Specifically, I really do intend for the Hitting the Links feature to go up every Saturday. But the fact is I’m busy and it’s just been difficult. So I apologize for not getting one up last week.
But fear not, faithful Internauts, for we’re back, and we’ve got plenty of strangeness from all corners of the web for you to peruse.
This week’s links include dogs versus sharks, the navy versus aliens, cars versus gravity, space stations versus the ocean, and Chinese parents versus common sense. Huh… lots of conflict there.
Lets hit the links!
