Friday Links!

Leading off this week, and it's a fascinating read: Terriers Were Once The Greatest Dogs In The World.

From Wally, and ouch: When Historical Pirates Did PR: The Writings of Captain John Smith. Next, and no thank you, it's This Swiss Roller Coaster Looks Absolutely Terrifying For All The Wrong Reasons. Next, and while the title might not be totally accurate, it's quite good: The Most Satisfying Video Ever Made. This link wins the "What the hell?" award for the week: Tree Lobsters, believed for decades to be extinct, are making a comeback.

From DQ Fitness Advisor Doug Walsh, and this is a terrific video: Jaws vs the Lyon 25.

From C. Lee, and both of these links have wonderful, imaginative art: See the galaxy! Book today! These travel deals won’t last! and Poster Art 150: London Underground’s Greatest Designs. This is a pretty spectacular piece of technology: Researchers develop ‘Superman memory crystal’ that could store 360TB of data forever.

From Tim Lesnick, and this brings back many memories of Creepy Crawlers and whatnot: Mattel Recruits Your Inner Child With $300 ThingMaker 3D Printer for Designing and Creating Toys.

From Craig Miller, and this man does not have a strong arm: Khris Davis has Four Assists.

This is one of the greatest things I've ever seen: A T. Rex Riding a Horse Kicking a Soccer Ball Is Everything Wonderful About the Internet.

From Meg McReynolds, and this is beautiful: Misty Copeland Recreates Iconic Edgar Degas Artwork for Harper's Bazaar.
