Friday Links!From C. Lee, and this is quite embarrassing: Crew Member Pushes Wrong Button, Loses Nearly $5 Million in Weapons. This is almost as crazy as some of the stuff Eli 15.5 and I are doing: HOW TO BUILD A CANNON THAT SHOOTS WIFFLE BALLS AT 50MPH [VIDEO].
From Steven Davis, and this is absolutely fascinating: WHY DALMATIANS ARE ASSOCIATED WITH FIRE FIGHTERS. Next, and this is amazing, it's How do the blind cook?
From Steven Kreuch, and this is both beautiful and somewhat unnerving: GoPro Awards : Frozen Lake Free Dive.
This is an important article, and a thorough piece of journalism, but I warn you that it is a very, very difficult read: The Crimes of Seal Team 6.
This will make you feel better; a wonderful article sent in by Nate Carpenter: R.E.M.’s Peter Buck needed a new label. The one he chose won’t take your credit card.
From Wally, and this is an interesting read: Patriot Naval Exploits. This next link was sent in with a "Doesn't everyone" comment: Man uses unicycle to get to work on snowy roads.
From Les Bowman, and I will be watching this as soon a possible--the Amiga 500 is still my favorite computer ever: People still use the Amiga today, and new Viva Amiga documentary shows why.
From Jesse Leimkuehler, and these images are just spectacular: Your Home Planet, as Seen From Mars.
From Steven Davis, and this is fascinating (attention: DQ Film Advisor and Nicest Guy In The World Ben Ormand): Walt Disney's MultiPlane Camera (Filmed: Feb. 13, 1957). Next, and this seems both like a good game and quite bizarre, it's Mongolian knuckle-bone shooting. This is quite amazing: Heirloom Tech: The Inlaid Micro Geometries of Khatam.
Finally, and this a long and utterly fantastic article about one of my favorite games ever (thanks C. Lee): Final Fantasy 7: An oral history.
