Friday Links!

This is an particularly solid collection of links, with some excellent long reads.

From DQ Reader My Wife, and this is an amazing story about incubators: Babies On Display: When A Hospital Couldn't Save Them, A Sideshow Did.

From Steven Davis, and this needs no explanation: Jimmy Page: How Stairway to Heaven was written.

This is just tremendous, and I had no idea it was a thing: I Can’t Stop Watching These Crazy Assholes Play Indoor Bike Soccer.

This is a fascinating read about an epic and repellent character: Joe Gould's Teeth: The long-lost story of the longest book ever written.

I'd certainly like one of these, please: The Skysphere.

From C. Lee, and this is an entirely fantastic read: The Singular Mind of Terry Tao: A prodigy grows up to become one of the greatest mathematicians in the world.

This is an amazing find: Scientists Discover Identities of Four Jamestown Settlers.

What a story: Potsdam’s Nightmare: What Happened to Garrett Phillips?
