There are a lot of links to share today. Let's get started.
Wilhelm Scream that gets used a lot in all kinds of movies. Here is a compilation of many Wilhelm Screams. (The video is slightly but not terribly violent, but duh, people are screaming, so.)
It looks like maybe those of you in the US won't have to deal with those sickly yellow street lights for forever. However, I seem to recall a city in Britain using them to specifically discourage youth from hanging out at night (because it makes your features so garish), so maybe they did have a purpose.
I've always wondered why Europeans insist on wearing their skimpy swimming trunks even outside the confines of Europe. Turns out, maybe they just don't feel like buying another swimsuit when the one they have complies with the rules in their home country's swimming pools.

Finally, if I am reading this correctly - and I think that I am - the state with the overall lowest rate of obesity today (Colorado), would have been the fattest state in the nation in 1995. Woah.
