Homemade Coraline Doll (link roundup)

Mammazakka made a tiny Coraline doll. More photos, including a few in progress shots, in her Flickr gallery. Relatedly, recent posts at Evil Buttons, my Coraline site, have included more giveaways and Coraline concept art.

And a few more links:

1. LeBron James weighs is 6'8", but supposedly weighs more than the center on his team - - 7'3", 260-pound Zydrunas Ilgauskas.

2. There was a thriving market for used light bulbs in the Soviet Union. Go here and scroll 2/3 of the way down to find out why. Via.

3. General Motors, which accepted $9.4 billion in bailout money from US taxpayers gave Super Bowl MVP and multi-millionaire Santonio Holmes an $85,000 Cadillac Escalade Hybrid Platinum. They did it with as little publicity as possible to avoid uproar. Via.

4. If you're interested in what sort of traffic "big" websites get, Atlantic.com is crowing that their new "Business Channel" gets 20,000 page views a day.
