Friday Links!

We're a little light this week, but there are some very strong links.

Leading off this week, and man, it's an incredible story: Revealed: How VW Designed the Greatest Scandal in Automotive History.

From C. Lee, and this is fascinating: How the CIA Hoodwinked Hollywood. Also, and this is excellent, it's A peek into Naughty Dog game creator Neil Druckmann's creative process.

From Mark Lahren, and this is both hilarious and terrifying: Conspiracy Theorist Cruise.

From Wally, and this is an interesting, obscure note about WWII: Il Duce’s Blitz? — Italy’s Role in the Battle of Britain. This is twenty years old and still very funny: The Top 100 Things I'd Do If I Ever Became An Evil Overlord.

From Steven Davis, and this is an amazing video ("In this theater the dance of a puppet, destructured in time and space, shows us the mechanisms that pulls the strings."): OSSA.

From 3Suns, and watch out, everybody: Hacker shows Reg how one leaked home address can lead to ruin.

Finishing off this week, and it's a terrific read, it's How a Guy From a Montana Trailer Park Overturned 150 Years of Biology. Wait, here's one more: How To Summon The Bird That Guides You To Honey: In a rare case of specific communication between humans and wild animals, the Yao people of Mozambique have a special call for attracting the greater honeyguide.
