Friday Links!

Leading off this week, from Eric Lundquist, and it's one of the saddest stories you'll ever read:
Todd Marinovich is learning to be human again. Next, and this is so, so clever: Alt-1977: We Are Not Time Travelers.

Irony, and also remarkable: For the NFL and all of football, a new threat: an evaporating insurance market.

From Steven Davis, and this is fascinating: The Italian Art Supply Shop That Keeps Renaissance Painting Techniques Alive. I had no idea this was a thing: The Quirky, Endearing Tradition of “Duck” Architecture.

From Meg McReynolds, and there are brilliant: 2018 McGingerbread Hell Competition Winners.

From Wally, and this is an interesting look: French Air Force 1940 – Analysis. This is a terrific read: The Metal Detectorists Who Find Lost Wedding Rings. This will blow your mind: Food Industry Machines That Are At Another Level. Still crazy after all these years: The Weekend Warriors of the Crown Province of Ostgardr (Otherwise Known as New York City).

From C. Lee, and this is puzzling: Earth’s magnetic field is acting up and geologists don’t know why. This is fascinating: Why new things make us sad. Concerning: How salmonella-tainted food gets in your fridge. This is good news: The molecule that helps exercise protect the brain from Alzheimer’s.

From Brian Witte, and this is provocative (Oumuamua): If True, This Could Be One of the Greatest Discoveries in Human History.
