Friday Links!

From C. Lee, and this is an excellent read: Sebastian Seung’s Quest to Map the Human Brain. Also, and this is quite clever: XCOM Ballet. One more, and it's terrific: Kurt Vonnegut graphed the world’s most popular stories.

From Geoffrey Engelstein, an interview with the designer of Risk Legacy: PRACTICE 2013: Rob Daviau.

From Gridiron Solitaire Artist And Ideas Man Fredrik Skarstedt, and this is some incredible card magic: Penn and Teller Fool Us // Shin Lim.

From The Edwin Garia Links Machine, and this is an amazing discovery: Remains of English Jamestown colony leaders discovered. Also, and this is quite odd, it's Why is the US still using a Nazi tall ship?

From Steven Davis, and it's more Action Park: The world’s longest inflatable waterslide is 1/3 of a mile long.

Here's an article from Gus, written by Jonathan Quick, about elite NHL shooters: Elite Snipers 101.

Ever wanted to see the exact other side of the world from your location? Thanks to a link from Meg McReynolds, you can: Antipodr - Find the other side of the world. One more from Meg, and it's excellent: Reviewed: The CDs In The Used Car I Just Bought.

This does not sound excellent at all: AP Investigation: Olympic teams to swim, boat in Rio's filth. Also, and this is pretty fantastic, it's Sometimes the Best Photos Are the Ones That Don’t Make It Into Print.
