Happy New Year Friday Links lovers, we trust you made it home for the festivities, wherever in the world home might be. In getting there were you perhaps on one of these planes on this timelapsed footage of all flights in a 24 hour period? A simultaneously amazing and horrifying first link of 2011– respectively the beautiful pollen-like nature of planes congregating en masse and the mind boggling environmental impact of such a humungous carbon footprint. Or as one MRMer put it ‘I hate flying so this scared the bejesus out of me’. Quite. See for yourself here.
Assuming, snow permitting, you made it home to spend Christmas in the bosom of your family we hope Santa was good to you. If not, you might want to think twice about shlepping half way round the globe, or even around the corner, for a family Christmas next time. Alternatively, bookmark this site. If you’ve been similarly blighted then Ebay is clearly also an option, that is if humiliating your nearest and dearest for having poor taste isn’t your thing. Ahem.
