Friday Links!

From The Edwin Garcia Links Machine, and this is very cool: The ABC of Architects: An Animated Flip-Book of Famous Architects and Their Best-Known Buildings. Also, and this is quite amazing: Must Watch Sci-Fi Short: NOON [Video]. Also, and this is a fascinating short film about graffitti in Rio de Janeiro: VNA in Rio de Janeiro. Last one from TEGLM for this week, and it's remarkable: Science Works to Unravel Mystery Behind Woman Who Doesn't Grow.

From Sirius, and this is a substantial advancement: Researchers create 'fluid-like' Polymer Electrolyte for Flexible Batteries. Next, I have no words: Introducing the Exciting and Vaguely Scary Art of Eyelash Jewelry.

From J.R. Parnell, and this is a great story: How 19-year-old activist Zack Kopplin is making life hell for Louisiana’s creationists.

From Richard Matsunaga, and we've discussed high-intensity training (HIT) before, so here's a bit more thoughtful fuel for the fire: The Truth About Exercise.

Matt Sakey's excellent Culture Clash column has a new installment, and this month, it's Play it Some Author Way.

John Lecander sent in a link to another story that illustrates why LEGO is one of the finest companies in the world: Boy writes letter to LEGO after losing minifigure, gets awesome response.

From Michael M., and this is both utterly brilliant and quite alarming: Remote-control tech turns cockroaches into beasts of burden. Also, and this is both very intelligent and wonderfully sarcastic, it's Why the Moon Landings Could Have Never EVER Been Faked: The Definitive Proof (Ben, you might find this interesting).

From Frank Regan, a fascinating article about a new way to demolish buildings: Razing skyscrapers from the inside.

From Eric Higgins-Freese, and these are so very clever: Dr. Seuss books titled by their subtexts.

From Steven Davis, and this is quite a video: Room For Wonder: The magical collections of Richard Garriott. One more, and for me, this is the link of the week: Meet Mark Landis, One of the Most Prolific Art Forgers in U.S. History.

From David Gloier, and this is an absolutely tremendous read: For Amusement Only: The Life and Death of the American Arcade.

From Jonathan Arnold, and this is an amazing story: Sperm Whales Adopt Deformed Dolphin.
