Friday Links!

Leading off this week, from Matt Anderson and several others, and I can't recommend this highly enough: Window Swap. It lets you see out from someone else's window, all over the world. I'm looking out one in Berlin-Marzahn right now, and it's beautiful.

Here's something from Chris Pencis, and it's in a similar vein: It's a Wonderful World: go on a cultural trip across the globe

Excellent links from C. Lee. First, and this is interesting, it's Why Monty Python's Life of Brian, once rated X, is now a 12A (and yes, that was intentional). This is very funny: Just personal enough. This is entirely wonderful: You children write illiterate letters. This is intriguing: 1,000-Year-Old Cat Skeleton Suggests Nomadic Herders Cared for Ailing Pet. Oops: IBM job ad calls for 12 years’ experience with Kubernetes – which is six years old. This was inevitable: The most personal device: Researchers probe how much psychological data smartphones generate.

From Chris Meadowcraft, and these are consistently entertaining: Smells Like Teen Spirit Cover In Classical Latin (75 BCE to 3rd Century CE) Bardcore.

From 1964, and it's a tremendous read: The Struggle for Civil Rights in Mississippi.

This is fascinating: Study: Magicians’ priming techniques are effective at influencing choice. And this is as well: How the geometry of ancient habitats may have influenced human brain evolution.
