Friday Links!From Makonnen, and Eli 14.10 is ready to go on this: Combat juggling exists, and it is damn entertaining.
From Wally, and this is quite interesting: Sorry, There’s Nothing Magical About Breakfast. This is long but almost mesmerizing (check out the guy at the 5:00 mark): Best Fast Workers In The World Compilation. This is an amazing presentation of data: Star Wars Episode IV in One Picture.
From Dan, and this article (and website) are both excellent: Cumberland Pencil Museum.
From Craig Miller, and this is fantastic: Hyper-Reality. Also, and this is very cool: Drone Star Wars.
Marc P sent me a link to an absolutely incredible website: NASA System Case Failure Studies. Here's a description: "These stories are written as summaries of system failures from which we can learn. While many of these cases are not NASA related, each has certain aspects that are applicable to NASA." The individual cases are just fascinating, and Marc recommends this one in particular: Kiloton Killer: The Collision of the SS Mont-Blanc and the Halifax Explosion. I'm a fan of Halifax, even though I've never been there, and it's because of this song: Channel Halifax.
From Isiah, and this is entirely ridiculous and also entirely remarkable: Rock Band Juggler Practice - Poker Face.
