Friday Links!

Leading off this week, from Steven Davis, and this is fascinating, it's MAKE: Inventions | The Airbag. Also, and this is wonderful, it's Creative Person: Fred Rogers. Still going, and who knew this was even possible: The Atlas Human-Powered Helicopter Wins the AHS Sikorsky Prize. One more, and it's bizarre: Wood battery could be the future of large energy storage.

From The Edwin Garcia Links Machine, and this is the X Games version of farming, it's Watch one crazy farmer stop a huge fire with his tractor. Also, and this is fascinating (using that word a lot this week), it's Seeds shed light on eating habits of ancient Japanese. Next, and this is quite the historical wackiness, it's Virginia Woolf and Friends Dress Up as "Abyssinian Princes" and Fool the British Royal Navy (1910).

From Daniel Rowland, and this is terrific: One Man's Journey to Yo-Yo Mastery.

From Jonathan Arnold, and this (again) is fascinating: A Journey Into Our Food System's Refrigerated-Warehouse Archipelago.

A bundle of links from Griffin Cheng this week. First, and this is beautiful, it's Fibonacci's Spiral. Next, and this is amazing, it's How aerial photographs tracked down Hitler's flying bombs. Next, and this is stunning, it's Snow + Volcano = Magic. Next, and these are tremendous photographs, it's The "Old" Main Library. Finally, and this is one of the coolest ideas ever, it's Japanese island to become real-life Game of Life for the summer.

From Wallace, and this is crazy: What It’s Like To Be On Reality TV.
