Custom Metroid Wii (link roundup)

Custom Metroid Wii - - one of several custom consoles by Morpheon Mods. Via.

And a few more links:

1. You've probably heard by now that the Chuck tv show will only continue because it's basically going to become and ad for Subway. But did you know that the Gates foundation is "funding health and education messages to be integrated into Viacom TV programming"?

2. NY Times says Roman Catholic Church has been too busy fighting off attempts to prosecute pedophile priests to mount much of an opposition to gay marriage. Via.

3. Coupon for free lettuce wraps at P.F. Chang's. Via.

4. A 13-year-old boy desperately needed to have his head drilled open to drain it of blood clots. But he had the misfortune of being treated in a small Australian hospital that had neither the necessary tools, nor an expert neurosurgeon. So, the available doctor grabbed a household drill and then drilled into the boy's skull while being talked through the procedure over the phone. The surgery was apparently a success. Via.
