Geek Fest.

We stuffed ourselves silly at my niece's birthday party lunch bbq today, and barely ate a whole sandwich each for dinner. So, since tonight is the second lazy dinner night in a row, I'm having a link fest, theme o' the geek.

The Graphing Calculator Story An impressive tale of persistence and generally geekified sweeetness.

Molecules with Silly or Unusual Names That says it all really.

How to Stop Time Hiro Nakamura eat your heart out!

RPGer's Famous Last Words "Hah! I'm not dead yet. I still have five hit points." With 1,707 of these, I'm sure you'll find a few you've heard a party member or two say before!

The Grand List Of Console Role Playing Game Clich├ęs In much the same vein, here lies everything that ever happened on a RPGer's playstation.

Touchable Holography This is genuinely cool, even for non-geeks. The University of Tokyo has come up with a way to 'feel' holographs. Pretty nifty.

Neil Gaiman's Bookshelves I knew that his basement was pretty special, from a few random comments he'd made on his blog, but I had no idea just how special that was!

Tales for the L33T: Romeo & Juilet Shakespeare meets stick figures and txt, designed to bring MySpacers up to date with the classics. It's not quite as lame as that sounds. Ok, maybe it is.

And finally, The Human Tetris Performance, awesome for what must have been hours of filming, but mostly the funky human voice soundtrack.
