Friday Links!

From Steven Davis, and Bill Gates has always impressed me in that he actually helps people with some of his billions: Neglected No More. Also, and this should win you a bet someday, it's Unbelievable Carpentry Trick. These are just amazing: Wild New Anamorphic Sculptures From the Warped Mind of Jonty Hurwitz.

From Craig Miller, and this is brilliantly unhinged: On The Turing Completeness of PowerPoint (SIGBOVIK).

From Wallace, and this is an interesting read: A Day in the Life of a Food Vendor. From Wally, and I had no idea there was more than one way: Do you pronounce 'scone' to rhyme with 'cone' or 'gone'? It depends where you're from. This is awesome (and hopefully far, far away); When the developers of Dwarf Fortress die, a museum inherits the game.

From Tim Jones, and these are amazing: The Second World War as if it were yesterday: Extraordinary collection of rare color photographs reveal life as the people living through the war would have seen it.

From C. Lee, and I have no words: Investors backing Juicero and its $400, DRM-laden juicer surprised to discover they were fleeced. This is tantalizing: A 3D-printed key that can’t be copied. I felt like this more than a few times: Do you have a pointless job? Here's a great bit of gaming history: The original X-COM was cancelled, but development continued in secret. This is an incredible story: Man learns--and shows--that his face is not all that matters. This is excellent: Moral behavior in animals | Frans de Waal.

From DQ Reader My Wife, and I guess AC/DC is universal after all: KIDS REACT TO AC/DC.
