Links of the Day

Apollo 11 Re-creation - July 16th is the 40 anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch with the 20th being the first time a man walked on the moon. As part of that the JFK Presidential Library and Museum is re-creating the entire Apollo 11 mission from pre-launch to touchdown and the return in real-time (I think). It even includes a Twitter account that chronicles the events as if really happening. Click the link above to check it out.

Four Hydration Myths Busted - Hot summer and at the link is four myths debunked about staying hydrated. Drinking 8 glasses of water is not a cure all to avoid dehydration, drinking caffeinated beverages is about as effected as drinking water (but of course less healthy), feeling thirsty is "not too late" but just a sign that you’re thirsty and that tap water is enough for most exercising but to restore some minerals watered-down fruit juice is just as effected as a sports drink.

What Happened to All Those Toxic Assets? - With TARP and other bailouts, you would think most banks would be doing all right. The video explains why banks continue to hold off lending money and what will probably be done with toxic assets and how that is a sign that a bank is emerging from its financial troubles.

Dark Fantasy III - Third video in a series that pits Final Fantasy characters against Dead or Alive characters. In the below video FF7's Tifa fights DoA's Hitomi in a church on fire.
