Friday Links!

We're light for the holidays, as usual, but there are still some good links this week.

Leading off, and this is a link to quite a few stories (many of which are excellent): Deadspin's Best Long Stories Of 2017.

From Wally, and this is excellent: The mystery of the lost Roman herb. Next, and I had no idea, it's You Won’t Think the Platypus Is So Cute if You Feel the Excruciating Pain of Its Venom. This is interesting: Latency: why typing on old computers just feels better. This is a good read: The Sunk Cost Fallacy.

From C. Lee, and this is fascinating: The Doomsday Diet: Meet the all-purpose survival cracker, the US government's Cold War-era nutrition solution for life after a nuclear blast. This is an eye-opener: What Goes On in Amazon's Warehouses. This is just an amazing article: WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE LET TECH CARE FOR OUR AGING PARENTS.

From Steven Davis, and this is a terrific read: The Little-Known Reason Pencils Are Yellow.

From Chris Pencis, and this is no surprise: Why underdogs do better in hockey than basketball. Next, and this is absolutely stunning: Transient - 4K, UHD, 1000FPS.
