Friday Links!

Light this week, which traditionally happens right before school starts, although who knows what's going on with that this year (in the U.S., at least).

Here is a long and extended set of impressions on Flight Simulator, and boy, does it look amazing: Flight Simulator hands-on: Microsoft looks different 20,000 feet in the air. This is huge news: We can see the true face of Van Eyck Lamb of God after latest restoration. This is a fascinating bit of detective work: Ancient trash heaps reveal the Plague of Justinian’s economic toll.

From Wally, and it's terrific: What Makes John Bonham Such a Good Drummer? This is an absolutely wonderful story: He’s 83, She’s 84, and They Model Other People’s Forgotten Laundry. This is both strange and creative: Chalk Warfare 4.0.

From C. Lee, and it's fascinating: Cracking the Case of South India’s Missing Vegetables. I had no idea: Why America’s Craft Brewers All Love a Vintage Candy. This is quite an incredible story: The Cola Fleet: How Pepsi once controlled the world’s sixth-largest navy. The Laundy couple is so awesome that here's another story with additional pictures: Taiwanese laundry-modelling grandparents are surprise Instagram hit.
