Friday Links!

From Frank Regan, and this is phenomenal, it's 100 Riffs (A Brief History of Rock N' Roll).

From The Edwin Garcia Links Machine, and this is terrific, it's Saddleback Leather's David Munson Shows You How to Knock Off His Designs. Next, and this is thought-provoking, it's Hitler on the Mississippi Banks: Thoughts on Timothy Snyder's Bloodlands. Next, and this is just brilliant, it's Fight Club minus Tyler Durden. Also, and this is entirely wonderful, it's An Illustrated Account of the Great Maple Syrup Heist. One final link from TEGLM, and it's powerful: Most of you have no idea what Martin Luther King actually did.

From Jonathan Arnold, and this is fantastic: Internet Radio Provides Musical Space-Weather Reports from NASA's LRO Mission.

From DQ Ideas Man John Harwood, and these are incredibly clever, it's Famous movie quotes as charts.

From DQ Reader My Wife, and this is simply bizarre: You Can Get Placebo Sleep. Also, and this is one of the most wonderfully heartwarming things I've ever read: This Woman’s Obituary is the Best Thing You’ll Read Today.

From Sirius, and these are amazing: "Tire icicles". Here's something I never thought I'd see: Focus: First Spectrum of Ball Lightning.

From Eric Higgins-Freese, and this is fantastic: Yesterday, the Internet solved a 20 year old mystery. Also, another amazing Google Glass app: Fighting fires with the help of Google Glass.

From DQ Legal Advisor Lee Rawles, and this is hilarious: Someone has made fake London Underground science, and whoever did it is a ruddy genius.

From Wallace, and you will never read a longer or more interesting story about toast (among other things): How did toast become the latest artisanal food craze?

From Tim Jones, and this will blow you away: Falcon Steals Camera, Accidentally Records Stunning Aerial Footage of Penguin Colony.
