Friday Links!In a twist, instead of being light on links for Thanksgiving week, we're light the week after.
Leading off, and man, this is a sad story, it's Former Avalanche enforcer Scott Parker battling effects of concussions. This is an important article to read if you have any interest in sports or in the medical research into concussions, but it's brutal.
Next, from Katy Mulvey, and this is an absolutely fascinating article that you absolutely must read: Reverse-Engineering a Genius (Has a Vermeer Mystery Been Solved?)
From Les Bowman, and this is lighter fare, fortunately, it's How a determined photographer's quest to capture the NFL led to a groundbreaking photo shoot.
From Eric Higgins-Freese, and this is going to get very interesting: Google Glass Makes Its Way Into Operating Rooms.
Next, from Jesse Leimkuehler, and this is amazing: Glaciers Visit Izatys Resort - Mille Lacs Lake, MN.
From Meg McReynolds, and this is fantastic: Richard Feynman on the Beauty of a Flower. Also, and this is incredible: Tauba Auerbach’s RGB Colorspace Atlas Depicts Every Color Imaginable. This, though, is even cooler: Rashad Alakbarov Paints with Shadows and Light.
From DQ Reader My Wife, and these are very clever: 50 States Of LEGO: Illustrated Miniature Stereotypes Of America. One more, and it's stunning: 'Memories' pass between generations.
From The Edwin Garcia Links Machine, and this is bizarre (I know, that's in the headline, but there's no other way to describe it): The CIA's Bizarre Art Collection Memorializes Its Greatest Hits.
Last one of this week, and it's hilarious: Dogs Terrified Of Walking Past Cats, A Dramatic Compilation.
