Friday Links!

Light for the holiday week, as usual, but there's some good stuff in here.

This is a staggeringly fantastic article: The.Last of the Iron Lungs.

From Wally, and I do not recommend this in any fashion: We Tasted Pringles’ Limited-Edition Thanksgiving Dinner, the Entire Holiday Meal in Chip Form. This is an interesting read: The story of Hitler's 'miracle weapon'.

From Eric Higgins-Freese, and it's amazing: Man finds car 20 years after forgetting where he parked it.

From Steven Davis, and this is fascinating: How the World’s First Color Photograph Came to Be By Abigail Cain. Also, and I always wondered about this (it's NSFW for language), it's Why Can't You Use Phones on Planes?

From Roger Robar, who said he had fond memories of this place: Abandoned: The Rise, Fall and Decay of Disney’s River Country.

From C. Lee, and this is a terrific article: How an unpaid UK researcher saved the Japanese seaweed industry. This is bizarre: VA study shows parasite from Vietnam may be killing vets.

From Chris Meadowcraft, and this is fascinating: The Grasshopper Problem.
