Friday Links!

From Steven Davis, and this is outstanding: Howard Blackburn: Hero Adventurer. Also, and this is unbelievable: PNWR Yoyo Contest 2015.

From The Edwin Garcia Links Machine, and this is excellent: Sticking to His Roots to Save a Culture from Extinction.

From Jim, and this is a nice way to spend a few minutes: Zombie-town USA.

From C. Lee, and this is tremendous: The Lutheran Insulter (Luther was quite good at it, as it turns out).

From Jonathan Arnold, and please keep this list in mind if necessary: 15 HIDEOUTS FOR THE WORLD’S NEXT GREAT SUPERVILLAIN.

From 3Suns, and this is extraordinarily useful for parents: How Not to Talk to Your Kids: The inverse power of praise. Next, and I've linked to it before, but it deserves another mention as an incredible learning resource: Khan Academy.

From Nate Carpenter, and this is fascinating: Hungry Slime Molds Reconstruct Ancient Road Networks.

From Frank Regan, and this is absolutely stunning: Carbon3D Unveils Breakthrough CLIP 3D Printing Technology, 25-100X Faster.

Here are two excellent reads from the New Yorker. First, a mesmerizing read about Gerry Adams and The Troubles: Where the Bodies Are Buried. Second, another Harper Lee story, this time about a book she worked on for decades: Harper Lee’s Abandoned True-Crime Novel.
