Friday Links!

From Michael M., and this is such an ingenious idea: clean art. Also, and this blew both my mind and Eli's, it's Giant anaconda photographed underwater in Brazil. Twenty-three feet, in case you're wondering, and there's also a video.

From The Edwin Garcia Links Machine, and this is the most interesting Internet survey I've ever seen: Internet Census 2012: Port scanning /0 using insecure embedded devices . Also, an anarchist community in Washington state in 1901? That would be Home. Next, and this is just an incredible find, a 55-minute documentary: 1968 Thelonious Monk NDR WDR.

From Francis Cermak, and man, I have fond memories of this game: EA's NHL '94 remains landmark game after 20 years.

From Paul Adams, and if you like Prince, this is epic: Original Live Recording of Purple Rain (First Avenue 1983). That's the version used on the album as well.

From DQ Reader My Wife, and these are terrific: The 50 Most Perfectly Timed Photos Ever.

From Robert McMillon, and this is staggering: Unfit for Work: the Staggering Rise of Disability in America.

From Jonathan Arnold, and this is just fascinating: Mystery of Prince Rupert's Drop at 130,000 fps.

From Sirius, and the first image at this link is stunning: Lake Baikal in winter.

From Griffin Cheng, and this is remarkable: Snapshot of a two-faced Tatooine world.

From Eric Higgins-Freese, and I wonder if these games will be backward-compatible: Pennsylvania stadium aims to please fans with urinal video games.

From Frank Regan, and this is a fascinating article: The largest computer ever built.

From Shane Courtrille, and this is a bizarre and fascinating story: Meet the Man Who Sold His Fate to Investors at $1 a Share.
