Links of Awesomeness: November 2, 2012

It seems like every time I turn on the TV there's a political ad bashing one of the candidates.  People in Ohio can finally catch some relief from the constant noise. unPAC, a coalition devoted to getting money out of politics, has produced the first silent political ad. [via GOOD]

Hurricane Sandy left a lot of people without power and water — some even lost their homes. That's why Airbnb, a website that facilitates renting apartments or rooms for short periods of time, is waiving all of its fees for the more than 20,000 spaces affected by Sandy. [via GOOD]

I'm always losing socks. And I guess other people are too because San Francisco-based clothing company Betabrand is now offering sock insurance. By filing a claim, which means telling them that you lost a sock and "posting a funny picture onto Facebook," you can get back two socks for every pair you buy. [via Laughing Squid]

Stephen Colbert has fun with his guests. And the other day he welcomed David Byrne and St. Vincent. You can watch their interview and performance here. [via Stereogum]

Sometimes people make really awesome stuff with cameras. This is one of those times (see below). If you like nature — heck, even if you don't — this video is awesome. [via Laughing Squid]
