Links of the Day

Letterman Thwarts Blackmailer - The problem with blackmailing is it assumes the target isn't going to call your bluff...but at the end of the day they have no choice as blackmailers don't just go away when they get what they want. So the net result is your damned if you do, damned if you don't so you might as well reveal all and nail someone for breaking the law along the way which is exactly what David Letterman did with his confession on his Thursday show and grand jury testimony. My only thought is why Dave would settle for ok looking co-worker tale when there is probably a good number of Hollywood scarlet who would have happily thrown themselves at his feet.

Watch CBS News Videos Online

POV of Avalanche and Rescue - I don't know much about skiing but apparently this skier in the below video made a few errors that resulted in him being buried and then rescued from an avalanche and all in just 9 minutes. The footage is dramatic, a touch scary and reminds you to just be careful because Mother Nature can easily kick your rear.

Mythbusters New Season - At the link is an article that talks about some of the new myths that will be explored in the new season of Mythbusters that finally starts next Wednesday. Some of the ideas come from Twitter, YouTube and more. Can't wait.

Final Fantasy XIII Trailer (In English) - The trailer for the upcoming game now has English voices that allows you to understand what is said but still leaves me completely in the dark on what the game is about. Safe to say its good guys versus bad guys for the fate of the world.

Lego Indiana Jones 2 - Maybe it’s just me, but this trailer for the sequel to the first Lego Indiana Jones game seems more like a remake. Still looks fun but it seems if you already own the first one, buying the second may not be necessary.
