Friday Links!

From Wally, and this is utterly wonderful: I made my shed the top-rated restaurant on Trip Advisor.

From Meg McReynolds, and this is brilliant and odd on so many levels: The Repressive, Authoritarian Soul of “Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends”.

From DQ Reader my wife, and what a story: Skating past Father time- 94-year old Marsh Webster continues hockey career.

From Kai, and I totally approve of this strategy: How to Take Out AT-ATs: a step-by-step guide presented by The Unipiper.

This is an amazing story: The royal-turned-warlord and opium pioneer of the Golden Triangle dies at 90. This also: The Philosophers’ Ship.

From C. Lee, and this is excellent: Final Fantasy Tactics, entitlement, and recognizing privilege. This is amazing: A bacterium that can read man-made DNA. Also, the potential downside of the bacterium: Semi-Synthetic Life Form Now Fully Armed and Operational. This is terrific: Ever wondered what 1975’s The Star Wars would have looked like?

From Steven Davis, and this is remarkable: The Map That Revealed How Ancient Egyptians Pictured the Afterlife. This is stunning: Up-Close Images of Jupiter Reveal an Impressionistic Landscape of Swirling Gases.
