Friday Links!

Leading off this week, from Wallace, a thoughtful and fascinating article: Survivorship Bias. It's brilliant.

From The Edwin Garcia Links Machine, and this is oh so beautiful, it's Tokyo City Symphony. Also, and these are beautiful as well, it's RGB Murals that Transform under Different Colored Lights. Next, and this is entirely remarkable, it's Rare Photos of the Statue of Liberty Being Built in 1883. Next, and this is crazy, it's Mine-seeking dolphins make historic discovery. Also, and this is an article about a documentary (and a subject we've discussed before): Ghost Army: The Inflatable Tanks That Fooled Hitler. Okay, last one, and it's Disney's vision of Mars in 1954.

From Steven Davis, and this is brilliant: Carpenter carves functioning watches entirely from wood. Also, and this is fantastic (holy crap, 3D printing is a disruptive technology): Anti-Gravity Object Modeling: “Mataerial” is a Robot That Draws Sculptures in 3D.

From Robert Nicewander, and holy crap: This 23-Ton, 5.3-Million-Brick X-Wing Is the Biggest Lego Model Ever.

From Sirius, and this is totally fascinating: Tornados producing a "dead man walking".

From Kez, and these pictures are just stunning: Incredible Images Of Teenage Freight Train Hitchhikers. Next, and I think this definitely needs to be put into a game, it's This century-old abandoned ship now hosts a floating forest.

From Griffin Cheng, and this is remarkable: Global Connectivity Revisited: Mapping out 58,288 Flight Routes. And more: In pictures: Global flight paths.

From Jesse Leimkuehler, and this is nothing short of stunning: Russian scientists make rare find of 'blood' in mammoth.
