The Weekend Links: Sunday Edition
Around 1959 in Notting Hill Tube Station, the passageways to the lift were sealed off for improvements. Recent work at the station has rediscovered these passageway, revealing a fascinating time capsule, and reveal a world long since disappeared.

In another display of re-purposing, see how many ways a hamburger (or at least, its likeness) can be used in every day life, from beds to USB devices to shoes! And thanks to one art installation, the same now goes for vinyl records.

"Due to Los Angeles cracking down on Superheroes on Hollywood Blvd, here's a list of the 12 greatest real-life superheroes of all time.

I hope everyone is having a relaxing weekend! If you're indoors and online, remember to send any fascinating finds to FlossyLinks@gmail.com!
