Friday Links!

From C. Lee, and I always thought this was true: How Strength Training Makes You Faster. In the same vein: Do You Have What It Takes To Be An Olympian? Also related: Muscle loss in old age linked to fewer nerve signals. Boy, this is topical: How to Buy a Gun in 15 Countries. Smugglers! What turns some law-abiding Canadians into smugglers? The high price of imported cheese. Yes, it did: The 1968 Kerner Commission Got It Right, But Nobody Listened.

From Meg McReynolds, and here are some details on one of the most poignant songs ever written: Glen Campbell's Wichita Lineman: The unfinished song that became a classic. More: Behind The Song: “Wichita Lineman”.

From Wally, and this is very clever: 8 Bit Door Chime Plays Africa By Toto. This is fascinating: Bug Gaits for Animators. You don't see this every day: Motorcycle Helps Rider Recover Runaway Horse. What, my World Famous Fish Stick recipe is under scrutiny? The Dirty Secret of ‘Secret Family Recipes’

From Steven Davis, and this is certainly chilling: The Grisly Origins of Madame Tussaud’s Wax Empire.
