Phantasmic Links 8.11.08

I guess all children go through phases in which they're less than patient or cooperative. I witnessed one terrible two or three-year-old acting out during mass this weekend. He was pouting and kept smacking his mother's hand away when she reached out to him. He was in his Sunday best, with the exception of a black leather vest with a skull on it. I had to wonder if the kid was acting like a little devil because his parents bought him the vest, or if they bought him the vest because he acted like a little devil. He was certainly too young to buy his own skull vest. It was a mystery. His dad held out a hand with a toy car which the child regarded for a few seconds before smacking his dad's hand as well. The mother said something softly to the child which I couldn't hear, but could probably deduce by his loud defiant response of, “NNNNNO!!! This isn't GOD'S house!!!” She scooped him up quickly and finally took him outside. The worst I ever did as a boy was crawl around on the floor; I was never creative enough to be that mischievous and play a get-out-of-church early card. In keeping with my tradition of being less creative on Sundays, I'm going to rely on the creativity of others as I list this week's PHANTASMIC LINKS :

(3) Let's pause for a moment to remember Bernie Mac and Isaac Hayes whom we both lost this weekend, far too soon.

(4) I should pay more attention to sports; I totally missed this Summer olympics theme song.

(5) In Motherload, you control a drill and mine for ore, which you can trade to improve your drill. What treasures await in the depths of Mars?

(11) These may be the 50 funniest road signs I've ever seen.

Have a link to a game, movie, article, or anything else you think might be “phantasmic”? E-mail me and it just might appear in an upcoming PHANTASMIC LINKS!
