Massive linkspam catch-up

So... I had a shitty evening last night. My blood pressure still feels a little high today. Hurrah. Here was the one bright spot: I was at TV Tropes going through the Characters as Device list when I saw "The Littlest Cancer Patient" and went, "Aww, hey, that's like the thing I used in the... omg."

Presumably, the name of this trope is a reference to The Day After Tomorrow in Fifteen Minutes, which uses the phrase to great hilarity.

I have made my contribution to the world and can die happy. You think I'm kidding, and I'm not.

(Maybe I shouldn't say things like "die happy" after the High Blood Pressure of Fury last night. And the last time I had it checked, the nurse actually said I had very good, low blood pressure. Knocking on wood... now.)

(Before you ask: yes, I voted today. Now I'm going to go scrapbook something random until I feel mellower.)

Speaking of which, from entropy_and_me: "I was so inspired by your digital scrapbooking creations that I've gotten a bit, er, obsessively into it myself now. I made a digiscrapping resource post at my blog. You might be collecting links to do a digiscrapping linkspam yourself for all I know, but I thought my little resource post might be of interest to your readership."

L.A. ponders law to rein in paparazzi. Yeah, you might want to "ponder" that.

Quarter of Brits think Churchill was myth. Yeah, so don't talk to me about American education. "A sample of 3000 people isn't even fair!" I'm just saying, remember that the next time some "scientific" poll comes out and claims Americans don't know what year the war of 1812 was.

Joran van der Sloot admits, on tape, that Natalie Holloway died on beach (Was Natalee Holloway Dumped Overboard While Still Alive?). He now claims he was "lying," but the really disturbing part is that, in the tape, he not only says he "hasn't lost sleep over it," but it's not even entirely certain that she was dead when they dumped her in the ocean.

(From the annals of badly-written headlines: Footage claims to solve Aruba mystery. Um, no. The footage itself is not claiming anything. There is no videotape hopping around going, "Hey! Hey, you guys! Hey!")

Horror fans react with disgust to Sweeney Todd - because it's a musical. I've said it before and I'll say it again: the two big negative reactions to this movie were "Ewww, gore!" and "EW, MUSICALS!" I personally view it as the best of both worlds, but...
