Friday Links!

Leading off, from The Edwin Garcia Links Machine, it's Time-Lapse Photography In A Single Frame. Next, and this is very funny, it's Barnacle Bill's Semi-Factual Nautical Tales, Episode 1 - Golden Calf.

From Meg McReynolds, and this is ingenious: Miniature Scenes Shot with Model Cars, Forced Perspective and a $250 Camera.

This will twist you in knots (from John Harwood): the phrase "Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo" is a grammatically correct sentence.

From Eric Higgins-Freeze, and this is amazing: Geneticists Use Herpes to Confirm Ancient Human Migration Routes. Also, and this is stunning, it's We can't stop watching this anamorphic optical illusion.

A bundle of links from Kez, beginning with Why have young people in Japan stopped having sex? Next, and this is remarkable, it's Gamers solve decade old HIV puzzle in ten days. This is tremendously bizarre: Shocking discovery: All mammals take about 21 seconds to go pee. Last one, and it's a doozy: You Won't Believe This Netflix Customer Service Rep Is Real.

From Jonathan Arnold, and this is terribly sad: The Ocean is Broken.

From Wallace, and this is fantastic: Airship History Slideshow.

From Steven Davis, and this is beautiful: Anthony Howe’s Otherworldly Kinetic Sculptures Powered by Wind.

Next, from Robb, and this is entirely remarkable: Disney Research’s Method for Electricity from Paper.

From C. Lee, and this is mind-blowing: The kilo is losing weight, changing all of science, but unfortunately we don’t know why.

From Julian Bell, and this is quite a headline: Norwegian hunter misses moose and hits man on the toilet.

This last link is both tremendously funny and quite beautiful as well. I'm not even going to explain it--just go look and be delighted.
