Friday Links!

From Matt S., and these are stunning images: Never-before-seen photos from 100 years ago tell vivid story of gritty New York City.

From Jim, and these are terrific: inside the controllers.

From Steven Kreuch, and this is a touching story of forgiveness: A teacher, a student and a 39-year-long lesson in forgiveness.

From D.F. Prosser, and these are wonderful: Creative Dad Takes Crazy Photos Of Daughters.

From Syndi Riley, and let me just say this: if you see a shark eat a two-pound can of coffee, swim away. Quickly.

From Griffin Cheng, and if it involves Game Theory, I'm in:
game theory in action in a game show.

From Keith Schleicher, and this is a great "slice of life in days gone by" story: Behold the water slide so dangerous it was shut down immediately.

From Meg McReynolds, and this is just fantastic: Stunning Footage of an Alien Planet: Earth.

Gridiron Solitaire artist Fredrik Skarstedt sent in a link to the Valve Employee Handbook , which must be the greatest place to work in the world.

From Jeremy Fishcer, and this is quite remarkable: IBM creates breathing, high-density, light-weight lithium-air battery. Also, and I don't recommend this as a career choice, it's snake noodling.

Closing out this week, several excellent links from Michael M. First, and these are stunning, it's New Titanic Pictures Mark 25th Anniversary of Discovery. Also, this is quite incredible: Little boy lost finds his mother using Google Earth. Finally, this guy should work for Southwest Airlines ("if you wish to smoke, please go outside the airplane" is a classic):Air Asia Safety Announcement.
