Friday Funday brings you some fun and interesting links from my travels around the internet during the previous week.

HomeFront’s PSAs [del.icio.us]

HomeFront is an anti-domestic abuse group in Calgary. They made these PSAs which are =very= disturbing. I have a hard time watching domestic abuse situations because they enrage me like few things can (rape is also on that list. I suggest that no one ever try to rape anyone else when I’m around because you might not live. I’m 100% not kidding about this). These commercials are, in my opinion, in extremely poor taste. Yet amazingly effective; after watching them, I want to go out and do something about domestic violence. What do you think? I made this link first so it wouldn’t be the last thing you see and you might have the other four to help balance how not funny this one is.

The Reel Truth [del.icio.us]

Honest to God, this is =exactly= what the film industry is like. I promise I’m not kidding. Cheers to Kris for pointing me to this one.

Cockeyed.com’s Pranks [del.icio.us]

A little social anarchy never hurt anyone, right? I mean, it’s not people are actually getting hurt by any of these. Well… Bonus points if you try any of these.

Gifts to Sate Your Technolust [del.icio.us]

Just in time for the holidays comes this great article by Xeni Jardin. I’ve wanted one of those shoulder bags for a while now.

Old Ads [del.icio.us]

The old ads on this pages were printed from microfilm dating back as far as the early twentieth century. The ads are broken up by decade, and when you click to enter, it may seem like there are only one or two ads on the page. It took me a while to realise that there are more ads to be seen if you use the navigation links at the bottom of the page (which, I must point out in order to save face, are on nearly every page of this site, so I hadn’t realised that they pertained to the page I was looking at. I thought they were some sort of poorly constructed, overarching navigational system for the site as a whole).
