Friday Links!

Here's a super creepy, evocative story to start us off: Sinister 'Hunger Stones' With Dire Warnings Have Been Surfacing in Europe.

Next, excellent links from C. Lee, as always. First, and this is thought-provoking, it's Why Technology Favors Tyranny. This is a magnificent and fascinating read: The Women Code Breakers Who Unmasked Soviet Spies. This is remarkable: Exploiting Decades-Old Telephone Tech to Break Into Android Devices.

From Wally, and this is a nifty bit of history: Rosie the Riveter isn’t who you think she is. McSweeney's is so damn funny: I AM PART OF THE RESISTANCE INSIDE NYARLATHOTEP’S DEATH CULT. Good freaking grief: The FBI’s Spying on Writers Was Literary Criticism at Its Worst. This is remarkable: This new blood test can figure out what time it is inside your cells. This is fantastic: Thailand's incredible Folding Umbrella Market.

From Brandon Reis, and I've linked to this before, but man, Florence looks amazing: A global map of wind.

From Paul Meyer, and this is thoughtful: Escape the echo chamber.
