Friday Links!

From Eric Higgins-Freese, and it's an excellent explanation: Evidence of a Ninth Planet.

Steven Davis appears later in the links, but this deserves its own spotlight: The Tennis Racket: Match Fixing.

From Wally, and this is wildly entertaining: La Petit Chef. Next, and this is as well: Maybe Filling A House With Explosive Expanding Foam Wasn't The Best Idea. Here's a recounting of one of the dirtiest political campaigns in U.S. history: Ma, Ma, Where’s My Pa? A cautionary tale: Actual Conversations.

From C. Lee, and this is remarkable: MIT engineers create glove that mitigates hand tremors from Parkinson’s. If you ever wondered how to have the freshest fish, here you go: A Fresh Idea. It's called "ikejime", and here's another explanation: Life Skills: Can You Humanely Kill a Fish?

From Steven Davis, and this is quite amazing: The Official Ultra-Ever Dry Video - Superhydrophobic coating - Repels almost any liquid! Next, and this is a fascinating read: Bone Thugs-N-Disharmony: Was forgotten paleontologist Joseph Leidy a casualty of the famous dinosaur wars? This next link is amazing and ridiculous: Engineer Builds a Functional Miniature V8 Engine Using Only Paper. Here's a terrific read: How GM Beat Tesla to the First True Mass Market Electric Car.

From Chris Pencis, and this is quite amusing: SR-71 Blackbird Pilot Trolls Arrogant Fighter Pilot with Ground Speed Check.

From Marc Klein, and I remember linking to the original story five years ago: Five years after viral video, 'Golden Voice' Ted Williams comes full-circle.
