Friday Links!

This is just an incredible, wonderful story: A Catfishing With a Happy Ending. Also, this is a tremendously fun video: Science Helps Reveal Which Carnival Games Are a Scam, and Which Ones You Can Actually Win.

From Wally, and this is a terrific read: An Illustrated Look at the Terlingua Chili Cook-off. Absolutely fascinating: Maine historian helped rediscover the World War I ‘color famine’. A good Halloween read: Inside the World of a Halloween Sound-Effects Artist.

From C. Lee, and this is an excellent time-waster if you're interested in art: The Lost Hokusai. Color-changing pancakes: Green pancakes that change color to the delight of kids. This is excellent: Have We Been Building Chairs All Wrong? I had no idea: Grocery stores are adapting to more male shoppers — whom they treat like knuckleheads. Discouraging (Antarctica!): There is not a continent on planet Earth without sexual harassment. This is amazing: JAXA probe finds 50-km cavern under surface of the moon.

From Steven Davis, and this is incredibly clever: New Paper Cutouts by ‘Paperboyo’ Turn Landmarks Across the Globe Into Scenes of Temporary Amusement.

From Rob Funk, and this is both fascinating and depressing: This nuclear fallout shelter was untouched for 55 years. It might come in handy now.

From Paul Meyer, and this is super cool (and don't forget about the costume count on Halloween!): Google Frightgeist (popular costumes).

You know you want one (I know I do): Halloween bento boxes.
