Friday Links!

From Steven Davis, and this is quite amazing: Weatherbeaten Melody (every bit as good as early Disney). Very clever and creepy: Artist Ronit Baranga’s Disturbing Anatomical Dishware Creeps Across Tabletops. Oh man, this is absolutely fantastic: Reverse Engineering the Antikythera Mechanism. I've never even heard of this before: Lost Knowledge: Timbrel Vaulting.

From Theo, and this is a fascinating article: The massive volcano that scientists can't find.

Here's some real healthcare wonkery for you, from C. Lee: International Health Care Systems Profiles. This is hilarious: The Men Behind the Infamous Fake North Korean Twitter Account. This is interesting and depressing: South Korea’s first black model smashes barriers despite widespread racism. This is very relevant in our house: Bring on the exercise, hold the painkillers.

From Wally, and this is an excellent read: Dividing and Conquering the Cuisines of China. This will make your head spin: Where Europe & Asia would fit in North America climate-wise.

From Griffin Cheng, and this is a terrific read: The strange and righteous history of the equals sign.
