Friday Links!

From Eric Higgins-Freese, and what an article: What Does It Take To Stay In The NFL? You Don’t Want To Know.

From George, and this is a father who is rightly proud of his son: Off to Defend his thesis (on a unicycle).

From Steven Davis, and this is spectacular: A Huge World Map on the Edge of a Lake. It Took One Man 25 Years to Build. Next, and I had no idea these still existed: Latest Miracle on 34th Street: Macy’s Keeps Wooden Escalators. This is incredibly clever: This Book Is a Camera: A Functioning Pinhole Camera Inside a Pop-Up Book. Okay, there are so many links from Steven that I'm just putting them in a list now:
Obscure Battles: Omdurman 1898
How Filipino WWII Soldiers Were Written Out of History
The Statistical Dominance of Dr. Seuss (this is fascinating)
6 Photographers Capture Same Person But Results Vary Widely Because of a Twist (VIDEO)
If You Like Epic Films, Thank The Italians
Sisyphus LEGO Kinetic Sculpture (so, so awesome)

From Meg McReynolds, and this is a terrific read: What It's Like to Live in a Frank Lloyd Wright Home.

From DQ Fitness Advisor Doug Walsh, and this is both funny and interesting: Playing Fallout 4 without ever leaving Sanctuary.

From DQ Reader My Wife, and this is The Greatest Single Thing On The Internet Ever: Hint Magazine Fashion Show.
