Friday Links

I was debating on whether or not I should post this.  But, ok.  Here it is, the latest find from SKRUG: a car with a front European license plate (of course) that has a Russian flag and says “Yolka,” which means either fir tree (like the kind you have for your New Year tree) or a nickname of some sort. I can imagine some tall, skinny guy in the Russian mafia being like, “Yeah. They call me Yolka cause I’ve done so many needles. ”

Nothing says LOOKATMELOOKATME like this license plate+car combo.

So I looked at it.

P.S. If this is your car, I would like a ride.

  1. Vicki: I love the links you share, mostly because we inhabit such different reading universes (so it appears). But I have a reader gripe: could you please consider setting your links to open in a new tab instead of the same one? I sometimes don’t read the whole thing in one go and like to leave the tab open which means I have to go to your blog again in a new tab. [No, I don’t read your blog on RSS but I am dutiful about reading it.] Thanks.

    1. Shefaly,

      Thank you for the feedback! I’ll take a look and see if I can change some code. In the meantime, what I usually do is, if you have a mouse, set your scroll wheel to open links in a new tab.
