Friday Links!

Leading off this week, from Steven Davis (who also appears later), it's In a Huge Breakthrough, Google’s AI Beats a Top Player at the Game of Go.

From Roger Robar, and man, this is beautiful: Afterglow: Lightsuit Segment.

From Wally, and this is quite interesting: The Cornish Pasty (History). It's also the first Cornish Pasty link to appear on DQ. Next, and this is quite a ghost story, it's Six Boy Scouts Murdered by a Witch Still Haunt a Virginia Road. This is fascinating reading: Sha Na Na and the Invention of the Fifties. Eagles rarely do not kick ass: Dutch Police Are Training Eagles to Capture Drones.

From Steven Davis, and this story has spectacular photos: SWALLOWED BY JAWS: On Jan. 15, legendary surfers took on Maui's skyscraper-sized waves. Next, and this is utterly incredible: Behold! A Telescope (or Tunnel) Book of the Crystal Palace. Red alert for DQ Film Advisor Ben Ormand: The 100 Jokes That Shaped Modern Comedy.

From Rob Funk, and this is a remarkable story: How A Slot Machine Mechanic Flew 150,000 Miles Over 64 Days Without Landing.

From C. Lee, and this is both clever and beautiful: Forget dog-earing and bookmarks that fall, make your own easy origami bookmark instead! Next, and this is painful but a tremendous read: Challenger, Columbia, and the lies we tell ourselves.
