Friday Links!

Leading off this week, the most popular link submission, by far (Sebastian Mankowski was first): The Short Film made From David Foster Wallace's Unforgettable "This is Water" Speech“.

From hippo, and this is absolutely fantastic: Scientists Invent Oxygen Particle That If Injected, Allows You To Live Without Breathing.

From Al Wilkinson, and somewhere, David Bowie is smiling: Chris Hadfield prepares for return to Earth with rendition of Space Oddity aboard the ISS.

From Steven Davis, and this is stunning: Super-small 12 cylinder engine may be the smallest in the world.

The Edwin Garcia Links Machine comes very strong again this week, and leading off, it's This Animation Based on Oscillating Sine Waves Is Utterly Entrancing. Next we have the evolution of Misrilou: the originalKorla Pandit 1951Dick Dale, and finally, The Black Eyed Peas. Then there's this fascinating interview with William Faulkner: William Faulkner on his Native Soil in Oxford, Mississippi. Don't even think we're done, because there's this: Century Chest time capsule. Also, this: Timelapse of beautiful, ancient, endangered red pine forest in Ontario. Seriously, that should be enough, but these last two are just too good to save for next week: London in 1927--a video, and In 1969 Telegram, Jimi Hendrix Invites Paul McCartney to Join a Super Group with Miles Davis.
