Afternoon Links: January 4, 2011

1. Homeless man Ted Williams has a “golden radio voice” — and he may very soon have a job, thanks to Reddit.

2. Britain is relaxing laws governing the size of pub glasses.

3. Is carbonated tap water the way of the future?

4. Sri Lanka may ban miniskirts in an effort to jumpstart “a new era of moral purity.”

5.  A Philippine politician was taking a photo of his family when he was assassinated. The photograph–which family members promptly gave to police–captures the assassin in the act.
