Friday Links!

From Stephen Tessier, and this is all kinds of awesome: World's longest lab experiment still going 85 years later.

From Jonathan Arnold, an utterly fascinating interactive timeline.

From The Edwin Garcia Links Machine, and this is utterly amazing: Russian leather.

From Sean Redlitz, a relatively mesmerizing color-matching test.

From David Gloier, and this is quite a stunner: Former President John Tyler’s (1790-1862) grandchildren still alive.

From Kadunta, and these are highly entertaining (NSFW warning because I didn't watch all of them, although everything I saw was totally okay): the 15 most delightful internet films of 2011. Also, and this is entirely wonderful, it's Game Deaths ("A compilation of classic arcade deaths, arranged to an 8-bit cover of "Mad World" "). Also, and this is a terrific read, it's things "in the common knowledge" about history that historians almost universally consider untrue.

From Jarod Werbick, a cover of Somebody I Used To Know (Walk Off the Earth) performed by six people on one guitar.

From Andrew Martin, and this is fantastic, it's Teens send toy above the clouds.

From Rich White, and this is a terrific (and demonstrates an attitude that more developers should emulate): Developer Makes Disabled Gamer’s Wish Come True With an Arrow Click.

From Sirius, one of the most amazing pictures ever taken of an iceberg. Also, and this is remarkable, it's A new life form discovered in Canada. Next, and if you know any spiders, this might come in handy: How to Build a Hardy Web. One more, and if you think this is a sabertooth tiger, think again: Sabertooth .

From Steven Davis, and this is substantially appalling: Drone Pilot Discovers River of Meat Blood.

Here's a very cool site: Letters of Note.

From Meg McReynolds, and if you bought a new iPhone, I hope you're not Scottish: Siri doesn't seem so smart in Scotland.

Closing out this week, from Fredrik Skarstedt, and this is one of the most beautifully written "F- you's" in history: To My Old Master.
