It’s only a flesh wound…it's the Friday Links blog
Sometimes the trials and tribulations of life cause you to lose your head. But isn’t it usually best just to shake off whatever’s bothering you and carry on as normal?
Well, for this week’s edition of Friday Fun, here’s how that nugget of advice can be taken a little too literally.
Meet ‘Mike the Headless Chicken’, who was able to carry on living a normal chuck’s life for EIGHTEEN MONTHS after the farmer had lopped off his head in preparation for the cooking pot.If you’re the sort of person who believes everything they read on the Internet (like some of us here at MRM Towers), you’ll be amazed at how Mike was apparently able to roam around his pen pecking at grain quite the thing, despite feeling so fowl (groan). His major artery was seemingly untroubled by the trauma, clucky devil (louder groans).
Okay, not impressed by Mike? Know a more amazing character? Well allow us to introduce you to someone who knows who you’re thinking of. A web genie, in fact, who can read your mind.
Think of a character, any character. Dead or alive. Human or animal. Real or fictional. Cartoon or…(uhm, what’s the opposite to a cartoon?). Anyway, now you’re ready to meet Akinator, who will correctly guess who or what you’re thinking about (according to a scientific MRM survey of three tries).
And finally, for those who view time as precious but have lots of time to check the time, here’s Helvetictoc, ‘a time-full tribute to a time-less typeface’. Anyway, it’s high time we were going.
