Brian’s Saturday Morning Links



Welcome to Saturday morning, home of the screaming hangover. Perhaps I’ll try to get my hands on some watercress.

This Day in Tech gives us a short, but interesting, look at the history of skyscrapers.

Some absolutely gorgeous photos of Saturn thanks to the continuing Cassini mission.

More from space–photos from MESSENGER show an impact crater on Mercury the equivalent of the distance from D.C. to Boston.

Is Google trying to take on Facebook next?

Kelis will be seeing if her milkshake still brings all the boys to the yard.

And The Stranger goes to the Seattle Erotic Art Fest and takes some photos. Probably NSFW for most of you.
