Welcome to another “Hitting the Links,” fellow Internauts.

I will be spending the next week firmly entrenched in my various Edmonton International Fringe Festival projects. You should check out both the stage play I’m in, as well as the nightly improv show.

The improvisational comedy show in particular might be up your alley.

But before I delve deeply into the world of theatre for the next week, I leave you with 18 Internet holes of glory for you to poke your business into. Uh…

This week’s batch of the bizarre includes a police force being laid off, thinking machines, real-life costumed crime fighters, undead squids and a town-for-sale.
