Friday Links!

From Lide, and this is a fantastic read: A Brief History of Bog Butter.

From Mark H., and this is a fantastic, wonderful read: CHOP SUEY NATION.

From C. Lee, and this is downright terrifying: The baffling reason many millennials don’t eat cereal. Also, and this is an appalling story: Decades Later, Sickness Among Airmen After a Hydrogen Bomb Accident.

From Steve Davis, and this is just amazing: The Ad Campaign that Convinced Americans to Pay for Water. Also, and I'm not sure about this, Mongolia: Mongolia is changing all its addresses to three-word phrases.

From Brian, and this is excellent: 470 MILLION YEAR OLD METEORITE DISCOVERED IN SWEDISH QUARRY. This is fascinating: Gut bacteria found to reverse autism-related social behavior.

From David Yellope, and if you think the Cold War was precisely managed and under control, this will correct that, because this guy stopped WWIII--by himself: Vasili Arkhipov.

From Wally, and these are just amazing: The Hyperrealistic Sculptures of Ron Mueck.

From Jim, and this is a masterpiece: D and D Burger Alignment.

This is no surprise to anyone familiar with sports gambling, but it's still a great read and a nice piece of investigation: How America’s Favorite Sports Betting Expert Turned A Sucker’s Game Into An Industry.
