Friday Links!

Leading off this week, from Julian Bell, and this is tragic: Typhoon Haiyan: Before and after.

This is just fantastic: NHL Megaman Sprites.

From The Edwin Garcia Links Machine, and this is terrifying: The Nazi Anatomists. Also, and this, in contrast, is hilarious: the elegant gentleman's guide to knife fighting - animations. Next, and I knew about this couple, but had never heard anything in this detail: 30 for 30 Shorts: The Schedule Makers. One more, and I believe this is the new Russian astronaut training program: Качели: Начало. They're still coming, and this is quite interesting: Janette Sadik-Khan: How New York City is remaking its streets to be people-friendly. Last one, and it's entirely wonderful: Glas (glass-blowing to jazz).

From Steven Davis, and these are incredibly striking and poignant: The Life and Times of an Aging Superhero Captured in Oil Paintings by Andreas Englund.

From Jesse Leimkuehler, and these are just stunning: Here Are The 30 Most Powerful Photos Ever Taken. The Kind That You Never Ever Forget.

From Jonathan Arnold, and this is so clever: The Shining - 8 Bit Cinema. Also, and DQ Reader My Mom will probably want to look at this, it's These Fascinating Maps Show The Origin Of Words We Use All The Time

From Ty Sleck, and this definitely falls into the "What the hell?" category, it's Subway ticket machine in Moscow dispenses free rides if you do 30 squats.

From David, and this is just fantastic: Smithsonian X3D.

From Sebastian Morgan-Lynch, and this is an amazing story: A Byte Out of History: The Case of the Harvey's Casino Bomb.
