An end-of-weekly roundup collecting fffffive of the fffffantabulous things I find stumbling around the web during the week here, but which I post on one of the many other Internet outlets I stop by (or tweet at) during my travels. More about the genesis here.
I think I lost a year of my own life reading this harrowing story of a young man's two-year stretch for armed robbery. He told it in a series of posts to a forum he frequented before doing time; someone compiled all the pieces, as well as his answers to further questions posted by other forum members. Caveat: while it's really well-told, it's about prison, i.e., not for the faint of heart. [Tumbled]
Even if the story is 100% false (and hey, don't believe everything you see on the TV news), the footage of this lion greeting his Good Samaritan after a long absence is wonderful to watch. [Facebook-ed]
