Friday Links!

This is a long and tremendous profile of a powerfully talented person: Donald Glover Can't Save You.

From Griffin Cheng, and this is remarkable: How a Sneak Attack By Norway’s Skiing Soldiers Deprived the Nazis of the Atomic Bomb.

A plethora of links from C. Lee:
Why Are These Hamsters Cannibalizing Their Young? (a staggering bit of detective work)
How a Library Handles a Rare and Deadly Book of Wallpaper Samples (fascinating)
The More Gender Equality, the Fewer Women in STEM (fascinating and strange)
These Are Not Your Father’s GMOs (also fascinating)
The brutal world of sheep fighting: the illegal sport beloved by Algeria’s 'lost generation' (brilliant)
You Should Thank Maurice Hilleman for Helping You Live Past the Age of 10 (a genius)

From Wally, and this looks like a mess: Here Come The Copyright Bots For Hire, With Lawyers In Tow. Not quite yet, maybe, but I think they're getting closer: The meatless Impossible Burger bleeds and sears, but wasn’t a crowd pleaser. Holy crap: Florida bass fishing can be dangerous. Not effective: Recovery team colossal fail. This is an absolutely amazing story: China’s American Imperial General. This is brilliant:  Encounter: Mark Twain Toasts Ulysses S. Grant.

From DQ Film Advisor and Nicest Guy In The World Ben Ormand, and it's both beautiful and a bit haunting: Skating on thin ice creates unusual sounds.
