Crate Men Attack Australia (link roundup)



Go to Australia and you just might see a crate man scaling a building. This site documents sightings. Via these fine sites.

And a few more links:

1. Hopefully it's just gamesmanship, but the Philadelphia Public Library system has announced that all libraries will be closed beginning October 2 due to budget problems. Via.

2. A former ESPN employee says Fred Smoot is a tremendous trash-talker who seemingly had done extensive research on opposing receivers' private lives for material, Nick Saban was stunningly vulgar, and that a former ESPN employee who killed himself was "almost universally loathed."

3. Iwo Jima Memorial, if it was sponsored by Disney. Via.

*Previously: Library's parking garage looks like giant books.

*BUy The Librarian from the Black Lagoon at Amazon.

  1. I live near Philly, the library thing is just standard politics here. Politicians often hold things hostage when they are too stubborn to give up other expenses and the people are too stubborn to spend more money.

    The libraries might close Oct 2nd, but after about a week of the national spotlight shining on this clusterf*ck everybody would get off their high horses and strike a compromise.
