Friday Links!

Leading off this week, and it's a great read: The Biggest Dinosaur In History May Never Have Existed.

From C. Lee, and these are outstanding: 'Star Trek' Postal Stamps Beaming in for 50th Anniversary. Also, and this is excellent, it's Someone who'd never seen Star Wars tweeted the whole original trilogy and it's hilarious. This next article is fascinating: What did the Romans ever do for us? Lice, fleas and bacterial infections. Here's something quite amazing: an augmented reality car manual. Next, and this is a real treasure trove: 180,000 Historic Maps, Photos, and Postcards Are Now Free for Public Use. One more, and it's both fascinating and shameful: The forgotten way African Americans stayed safe in a racist America.

From Steven Davis, and this is both terrific and difficult to read: A Father, a Dying Son, and the quest to build the most profound videogame ever. Next, and this is astonishing: This is what the entire universe looks like in one image. This is a wonderful read: Sky readers: For most of human history, the stars told us where we were in space and time. Have we forgotten how to look up? This is an incredible story: Ned Overend Is the Champion Cyclist Who Never Grows Old.

Adding some white space, but here are more links from Steven, and this one is terrific: How MSG Got A Bad Rap: Flawed Science And Xenophobia.

I'm breaking up the space, but this is another link from Steven, and if you play DFS, you should read it: How the Daily Fantasy Sports Industry Turns Fans Into Suckers.

From DQ VB.NET advisor Garret Rempel, and Eli 14.5 would love to play on this: A rooftop ice rink has just been installed on a 32 story building in Toronto.

From Wally, and this is fascinating: the Forme of Cury. Next, and this is an interesting perspective: Teeny house, big lie: Why so many proponents of the tiny-house movement have decided to upsize. Next, and this is very, very cute: The Scamperbeasts.
