Friday Links!

Leading off this week, and this is an unsettling, fascinating read: The Online Legacy of a Suicide Cult and the Webmasters Who Stayed Behind.

From J.R. Parnell, and the unexpected implications of genetic testing continue to interest: With genetic testing, I gave my parents the gift of divorce.

From Dan Willhite, and yes, this is fantastic: 20 Fun Grid Facts (Hex Grids).

From Steven Davis, and this is both unexpected and tremendous: Images of the Leonid meteor storm of 1833. Also, and while is a bit longish (25 minutes), it's excellent: What's in a Ballet Shoe.

From Dan Rowland, and this is hilarious: Our Ancestors Wore Babies Into Battle.

From The Edwin Garcia Links Machine, and this is the future, it's A War Photographer Embeds Himself Inside a Video Game.

From Jonathan Arnold, and this is terrific: 365 Paintings for Ants with Lorraine Loots.

From Tim Lesnick, and this is certainly one of the greatest headlines ever: SHERIFF: BURNED ARMPIT HAIR LED TO IDAHO CAR CRASH.

This very short film is entirely wonderful: Practice!

DQ Reader My Wife sent this along, and these images are stunning: Finalists Of The 2014 Wildlife Photographer Of The Year Competition Will Leave You Wanting More.

The incredibly Laura Shigihara's new game, Rakuen: Paradise Found, has a new trailer.

One more, and art forgery never fails to fascinate (me, at least): Talking With America‚Äôs Best Art Forger and the Man Who Tracked Him Down.
