Link roundup

1. Apparently fans are so anti-union that they're booing NFL players showing union solidarity.

2. Much of Japan's death penalty is shrouded in secrecy. Here's the technique:

The inmate is handcuffed and blindfolded before entering the execution room, officials said. Three prison wardens push separate buttons, only one of which releases the trapdoor — but they never find out which one. Wardens are given a bonus of about $230 every time they attend an execution.

3. Giant jackalope statue.

*Buy jackalopes at Amazon.
