Friday Links!

This is a terrific read: The BMW Addiction That Completely Destroyed This Man’s Life. Also, this is fascinating: Ancient stone carvings confirm how comet struck Earth in 10,950BC, sparking the rise of civilisations.

From Wally, and I entirely agree with this analysis: The Sandwich Alignment Chart (I think I'm True Neutral). This is utterly spectacular: The H.O. Studley Tool Chest. This is incredibly unsettling, even today: The Nazi Board Games of World War II. This is tremendously interesting: The Struggles of Writing About Chinese Food as a Chinese Person. This looks fantastic: Heroes Of The Comics. This is fascinating: For aerial challenge, Spruce Creek Fly-In pilot travels back to WWI.

From Ken Piper, and yes, this is scary: AI can now imitate any human voice with just one minute of training.

From Meg McReynolds, and this is very clever: Stephen King's Stranger Love Songs.

From Joshua Buergel, and this is incredible:  The Greatest Break In Snooker History Was Even Better Than Anyone Realized.

From Roger Robar, and this is an incredible story: The FBI translator who went rogue and married an ISIS terrorist.

From Robert Nicewander, and this is quite amazing: The Only Playable Stradivarius Guitar Left in the World “The Sabionari” Made in 1679. Also, here's a link to the video that is still active: video.

From Chris Pencis and this is incredible: FlightLapse #01 – MilkyWay, a time lapse view from the cockpit.

From C. Lee, and I'd never heard about this: The little-told story of the massive WWII pet cull. This is tremendous if verified: 'Exciting' blood test spots cancer a year early. This is a stunning story: Postpartum haemorrhage: Cheap lifesaver 'cuts deaths by a third'. Not good: China’s Appetite Pushes Fisheries to the Brink. This is a terrific read: George Washington’s Congress Got Off to an Embarrassing Start. This was an incredibly remarkable person: Florence Finch, Unsung War Hero Who Took On Japanese, Dies at 101.
