Linksfest: Tales of the Weird

  • The story of "The Lion Sleeps Tonight", and how it moved from an African hit to an international one. In the original version, the "wimoweh" of the Americanised versions was actually "mbube" - Zulu for "lion".
  • I've chanced upon a lot of weirdness on the Internet in my life, but the "teens who still breastfeed" Yahoo group (started by an 18-year-old, ostensibly) was still bizarre.
  • The Holland Village dog passes away. Aww. I remember the li'l guy.
  • On the bus from the hospital yesterday, I watched the men's doubles table tennis finals of the Commonwealth Games - boy that Nigerian team (Segun Toriloa/Monday Merotohun) was really exciting to watch.
