Friday Links!

From Meg McReynolds, and this is amazing: Reindeer Eyes Turn Blue in the Winter. Also, and this is enitrely delightful, it's 'What Are Clothes?' Asks Most Delightful Supreme Court Argument in History

From Shane Courtrille, and this is fascinating: The devil you know: inside the world of a psychopathic scientist.

From D. Collins, and boy, is this bizarre: Are these the most terrifying trousers ever? 

From Eric Higgins-Freese, and I actually meant to post this last week for Halloween: When, if ever, will Facebook contain more profiles of dead people than of living ones?

From The Edwin Garcia Links Machine, and this is quite a mash-up: SUPER SMASH WARS: A Link To The Hope - A Star Wars / Nintendo-verse Mashup. Next, and this is a follow-up, it's Beijing Orders Demolition of Rooftop Art.

From Les Bowman, and this is a touching story, it's Make-A-Wish Foundation Will Transform S.F. Into Gotham City For Adorable Batman-Themed Wish.

From Jonin, and this is clearly The Badass Of The Year, it's 80-Year-Old Man Survives After Falling Off a Cliff While Fighting a Bear.

From Steven Davis, and this is spectacular: This Programmable 6,000-Part Drawing Boy Automata is Arguably the First Computer and It Was Built 240 Years Ago. Also, and this is wonderful, it's Pinchcliffe Grand Prix. One more, and it's amazing: The world's biggest cuckoo clock in Triberg, Germany

Here's a beautiful, poignant video: Michael Stipe sings Lou Reed's Pale Blue Eyes (1983).

From Jonathan Arnold, and this is fascinating: A Brief History of Video Game Title Design.

From C. Lee, and what a way to end the week, it's How to pee without splashback, or how fluid dynamics might save your marriage.
