Mega Man/Team Fortress 2 mashup (link roundup)

8-Bit Team Fortress 2. Click through for animated gifs.

And a few more links:

1. This seems ready made for a Malcolm Gladwell article:

Ajab Han, a sergeant in the ANA working with British troops from the 1st battalion of the Royal Regiment of Scotland at a patrol base in the Sangin valley, has found 177 IEDs during his three years in Helmand.

"I can just see them," he says. "There might be a tell-tale trace, or something just not quite right, or a piece of wire or wood showing, and that is when I know I have found another one. IEDs often come in many parts so we have to find all the bits in the ground."
2. Cheerful Fahrenheit 451 sketch.

3. Mermaid pinup by Simon Eckert.
