Friday Links!

Leading off this week, from Meg McReynolds, the passing of possibly the fastest throwing pitcher in baseball (or human) history: Steve Dalkowski, hard-throwing pitcher and baseball’s greatest what-if story, dies at 80 of coronavirus.

From Wally, and here's a new hobby: Long-Lost U.S. Military Satellite Found By Amateur Radio Operator. I play games for this as well: COVID-19 is Changing Dungeons & Dragons. It May Never Go Back. Racing planes nerd alert: Ultimate Air Racing Machines: Gee Bee R-1 and R-2. What an experience: Dutch students complete Atlantic crossing forced by virus. This is both fascinating and lengthy: The Stockbrokers Of Magic: The Gathering Play for Keeps. This is a wonderful video: Second To None.

From Geoffrey Engelstein, and it's excellent: Remembering the Dead: Obituary Writers Restore Humanity to Covid-19 Crisis.

From Jonathon, and it's amazing: Unified Geologic Map of the Moon.

Excellent links from C. Lee, as always. First, and this is terrific, it's Darkest Dungeon Documentary. This is the absolute best: Here’s How 30 People React To A Sign On The Sidewalk Telling Them To ‘Commence Silly Walking’. These are tremendous: Getty Museum Asks People To Recreate Paintings With Stuff They Can Find at Home, Here Are The Results. And more (so clever): This Russian Facebook Group Is Recreating Famous Paintings While Isolating, And They’re Hilarious. I'm a big fan (watch the second clip, the first is annoying); This Pizza-Eating Groundhog Is the Quarantine Icon We Need.
