It’s the Fourth of July. You don’t have to work today. You’re looking at this blog, so you’re obviously at your computer with time to spare. Herewith, four enjoyable Web time-wasters:

2. A compendium of delightfully insane Japanese videos:

3. Escapa, supposedly used in training for fighter pilots.

4. The Museum of Bad Art

Happy Fourth!
