Many-eyed sculptures (link roundup)

Resin statue of Travis Louie's indomitable "Uncle Six Eyes" sculpted by Scott Wetterschneider.

Resin statue sculpted by Wetterschneider and based on Chris Ryniak and Jonathan "Johnny Crap" Bergeron's pair of hapless wanderers. Both statues coming soon from Bigshot Toyworks.

And a few more links:

1. One clever way to resist the urge to spend - - When considering a purchase, picture someone offering you the cash value of the purchase or the item in question. Which is of greater value to you? (I use this test to resist the urge to buy blind box toys, which are almost never worth the purchase price.) Via.

2. Baseball stats expert points out the obvious: 100 years from now, everyone will be using steroids and other body enhancements.

3. Apparently not a joke, but a new Food Network show is "What Would Brian Boitano Make?" Via.

4. Frankenstein stops to smell the flowers. Via.
