Friday Links!

From C. Lee, and this is amazing: The Secret Lives of Cannibal Stars Revealed, Thanks to 15th Century Korean Astronomers. Incredibly courageous: Robert E. Lee descendant — and denouncer — quits N.C. pastor post over ‘hurtful’ reaction to VMAs speech. This is tremendously ingenious and useful: Use This Simple Trick To Never Tangle Your USB Cords Again. So, so disturbing: The United States — A Model for the Nazis.

Even more from C. Lee, broken up for readability. I can't say this even surprises me: The surprising number of American adults who think chocolate milk comes from brown cows. This is lengthy and fascinating: 40 maps that explain North Korea. Yeah, this is happening way too easily now: Dr Con Man: the rise and fall of a celebrity scientist who fooled almost everyone. Fascinating: ‘Edvard Munch: Color in Context’ examines the meanings behind the artist’s bold choices.

From Wally, and this is a fascinating read about Lindbergh and WWII: They Can’t Realize the Change Aviation Has Made. Hey, we tried to warn you: Photos of Cameras and Lenses That Got Destroyed by the Solar Eclipse.

From Steven, and this is very, very cool: Why This 30-Year-Old Keith Haring Mural Was Never Meant to Last. This is very grim, but important: At the Brooklyn Museum, Tracing the History of Lynching in America.
