Friday Links!

From Meg McReynolds, and this is just brilliant, it's the Grand Taxonomy Of Rap Names.

From Jesse Leimkuehler, a numismatic mystery: Gold Coins: The Mystery of the Double Eagle.

From Kadunta, a terrific article about high-tech food: Incredible Edibles: The mad genius of “Modernist Cuisine.”. And in the same vein, it's ultrasonic french fries.

From Josh Eaves, an article about a remarkable young inventor: The Secrets of the Fibonacci Sequence in Trees.

From Sirius, and this is quite nasty: Frogs With Fangs. This is quite nasty as well: The Invisible Mouse.

From Steven Kreuch, a ridiculously cool slow-motion video: 8 Hours in Brooklyn. Also, an equally interesting video about how it was filmed.

From Jonathan Arnold, and these are very funny, it's The world's most brilliantly pointless street flyers. Also, and I had no idea that books had trailers nowadays, it's Making the trailer to Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.

From Rob Funk, and these images are totally spectacular, it's Toronto lightning storm August 2011.

From Sam Veilleux, a PS3 game cover redesign thread that features some fantastic art.

From Juan Font, and these are fascinating, but it's grim reading: Top 10 Unethical Psychological Experiments.

From Steven Davis, and this is entirely wonderful, it's How-To: Cut-out Animation with Monty Python's Terry Gilliam
