Friday Links!

From DQ Reader My Wife, and it's a fascinating read: Is Sunscreen the New Margarine?

From Meg McReynolds, and it's terrifying: O' Moldy Night. Clearly, a critical resource: Movies where the dog dies.

From Wally, and it's stunning: Steampunk Computer. This is provocative: I Tried to Block Amazon From My Life. It Was Impossible.

Australia! Tourist in Australia Goes Viral Holding 'Beautiful' Octopus That Can Kill Within Minutes.

This is sickening, but important: Portland Police Sergeant to Cops: ‘If You Come Across a Black Person, Just Shoot Them’.

This is an amazing story: How a Stroke Turned a 63-Year-Old Into a Rap Legend. And one more: Inside the 30-year quest to find a new state of matter.

From Scott Sanders, and it sounds like a blast: The MIT Mystery Hunt. Here's a video: The MIT Mystery Hunt: A Documentary. Here's a Radiolab about how John Scott got selected for the NHL All-Star game: The Punchline.

From Geoff Engelstein, and this is deeply worrying: Insect collapse: ‘We are destroying our life support systems’.

From C. Lee, and it's a remarkable story: Runner found to be a hitman after GPS Watch ties him to crime scene. Next, and this is fantastic, it's Microsoft creates physical programming language for low vision students. This is fascinating: Why Do We Hurt Robots? Oops: Auto thieves outwitting smart key systems in ‘relay attacks’.
