Friday Links!

Straight out of McDonald's, it's Friday Links!

From Matt Kreuch, a performance study on Cristiano Ronaldo: Tested to the Limit.

From C. Lee, and this is fascinating: Inside the Story of America’s 19th-Century Opiate Addiction. Come on, man! Someone stole a piece of China’s new solar panel-paved road less than a week after it opened. This is awesome: Elderly couple show off Dance Dance Revolution skills at Japanese video game arcade. This is extremely well-written: Spectre and Meltdown: Insecurity at the heart of modern CPU design.

From Wally, and faster sand bagging, surprisingly, is very interesting: Sand Master - why you want the right tool for the job. This is incredible: World's Best Jump Roper - Hawaii Style in 8K. These are beautiful: Puerto Rico Sketchbook: The Elders of the Island.

From Steven Davis, and this story is so outrageous that I'm leaving the headline in all-caps (really, I'm just lazy): HOW A DORM ROOM MINECRAFT SCAM BROUGHT DOWN THE INTERNET.

From Leo Moyer, and it's an excellent hypothetical: What would happen if a baseball game went 50 innings?

From Roger Robar, and this is a full links post all on its own: io9's Top 50 Science, History, and Space Articles of the Last 10 Years.
