Friday Links!

From Tim Jones, and this is incredible: More Than 4,000 Photographs From The D-Day Invasion Of Normandy Are Now Available Online. Here's a direct link to all the photos, and they are beautiful, overwhelming, and awful in turn: PhotosNormandie.

From Tim Steffes, and this is certainly interesting: The Myth of Drug Expiration Dates.

From D.F. Prosser, and this is a fascinating story: Beatrix Potter's Greatest Work Was a Secret, Coded Journal She Kept as a Teen.

From Wally, and this wish itself is probably science fiction: Why Business Leaders Need to Read More Science Fiction. Also, and this is just crazy, it's Maine campground takes ‘glamping’ to a new level. This is the Badass Tree of the Week: The amazing President is 3200 years-old. It’s so big that it has never been captured in one photo. This is a disaster: Scammers Break The Kindle Store. Some of these are very, very striking: Eerie photos of abandoned malls.

From C. Lee, and this is awesome if you're in one of the included cities (hey, Grand Rapids is in that list!): Anyone With An L.A. Public Library Card Can Stream The Criterion Collection. An amazing woman: Maryam Mirzakhani, Only Woman to Win a Fields Medal, Dies at 40. This is a brilliant and thought-provoking letter: VOICE A World War II Marine looks back and wonders: Where’s the America of sharing?

From David Gloier, and what a story: Known Alias: How Stephen King Was Outed as Richard Bachman.

From Frank Regan, and this is an incredible find: Scrap dealer finds Apollo-era NASA computers in dead engineer’s basement.
