Friday Links!

All right, I floated this out early by mistake, so let's just go with it. I'll update it so that it's complete at the usual time, and I'll date stamp other posts until then so that it stays on top.

From C. Lee, and this is beautifully written: Confessions of a Watch Geek. This is stunning: Milestone Experiment Proves Quantum Communication Really Is Faster. Absolutely remarkable sleuthing: Steel worker solves mystery as to why deer cross rail tracks. This is quite thoughtful: A ‘Self-Aware’ Fish Raises Doubts About a Cognitive Test. Who knew? Nordic Quack: Sweden’s bizarre tradition of watching Donald Duck cartoons on Christmas Eve.

More C. Lee links, separated for readability. This is terrific: When Nat King Cole moved in: The entertainer found his dream home in picturesque Hancock Park—but the neighborhood had a dark side. And so it goes: What the Popularity of ‘Fortnite’ Has in Common With the 20th Century Pinball Craze. I heartily agree: December: A month to decide what to stop doing.

From Wally, and this is amazing:  From robot restaurants to automobile vending machines: The e-commerce revolution in China. Also amazing: Mining co. says first autonomous freight train network fully operational. An incredible rabbit hole: British Library photo albums.
