Friday Links!

From Ken Piper, and this is such a bizarre bit of history: What We've Learned from Giving Dolphins LSD. Also bizarre: Hawaii’s volcanoes: How George S. Patton took on the lava with bombs.

From Paul Meyer, and here's a Badass of the Month: Montreal WW II hero, largely unknown at home, honoured as Dutch town's saviour.

A torrent of excellent links from C. Lee:
Bach at the Burger King
To Build Truly Intelligent Machines, Teach Them Cause and Effect
Who was called 'a great cow full of ink'? (snippy authors)
Lost, stolen, blown up and fed to pigs: the greatest missing masterpieces
The Vineyard Where Retired French Soldiers Make Wine
How a Special Diet Kept the Knights Templar Fighting Fit
Google Removes 'Don't Be Evil' Clause From Its Code of Conduct
Missing microbes 'cause' childhood cancer (this is huge)

From Wally, and this is striking: Image Comics Had Seven Different Artists Color a Black & White Todd McFarlane ‘Spawn’ Drawing. An interesting bit of history: Torpedo [Sea Mine].
