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

SOCIAL SECURITY CRISIS!: The FAQ! [del.icio.us]

An extremely funny and sarcastic look at privamatupilous splendiferacy. Er, I mean the privatization of Social Security.

SeatSale: License to Sit [del.icio.us]

This chair has a, “magnetic stripe card reader and spikes that retract when a seating license is downloaded from a license server in response to input from the card reader incoroprated [sic] into the chair.” And yes, the spikes come back out when the license eventually expires.

The Angel Light [del.icio.us]

The Angel Light can reportedly see through walls, as if there was no barrier at all. Troy Hurtubise (the guy that built a suit that would protect him in a hand-to-hand encounter with a bear) says he invented it because of a recurring dream. That the fuck does he smoke before he goes to sleep?

Fake Thai Disneyland [del.icio.us]

I’m not sure what’s more amazing: That someone bothered to build a fake Disney theme park, or that Disney hasn’t sued yet.

Safecracking for the computer scientist [del.icio.us]

An amazing paper detailed the common vulnerabilities of safes in use today. This paper is so good that locksmiths and safe-makers are shitting themselves.
