Friday Links!

Happy April Fool's Day, and please note there aren't a bunch of bullshit prank links in here (although there would be if I had thought of it earlier).

Here's a ridiculous and totally amusing bit of research: Was Scott Howard Actually Better Than Teen Wolf? A Statistical Investigation.

From Shane Courtrille, and this is magnificently disturbing: Chernobyl Kids video.

Solve this case and become a legend (around here, at least): FBI wants public help solving encrypted notes from murder mystery (thanks to David Gloier). Also from David, an incredible story: Authorities in Awe of Drug Runners' Jungle-Built, Kevlar-Coated Supersubs.

Here's a brilliant idea: Peanuts, with the last panel removed. It's called "3eanuts", and it's fascinating how sad and wistful these comics become.

From Tony McEvoy, and even as a promotion video, this is incredibly cool: A Day Made of Glass.

From Andrew Martin, and there is lots of fun to be had here, it's The Museum Of Quackery.

From Phil Honeywell, and I can't believe there's room for a version that hasn't already been done, but I was wrong: Super Mario Bros Theme Song!! A Capella Cover (and I have to admit, it's quite cool).

From J.R., a haunting link: A photo tour of the abandoned Six Flags New Orleans.

From George, and this is quite magnificent, it's the largest photo ever taken indoors.

From Dan Spezzano, an interview with Richard Berg, who is creating a Godzilla board game.

From Skip Key, and this video will blow your mind, it's Teaching Quadrocopters to Juggle Balls.

Here's a bizarre, ingenious attempt to smuggle drugs into prison: on the pages of comic books.

From Sirius, one of the most striking trees in existence: the Baobab. Also, and this is amazing, it's MIT chemists develop a practical "artificial leaf".
