Friday Links!

From Andy Dayton, and I'm a week late to link this, but it's still very funny: A Guide To American Football.

From DQ Reader My Wife, and this is a fantastic article: Minnesota‚Äôs Olympic Hockey Cradle (Pop. 1,781).

This week, The Edwin Garcia Links Machine sent videos, and lots of them. First, and this is very funny (and not mean in the slightest): The Truth About Gingers. Next, and this is another example of the surprising brilliance of Corvids: Clever Crow. These guys are quite amazing: Red Hot Chili Pipers. One more, and it's why babies can be so annoying:  Tomer Ullman: The Crying Game. Not a video, but stunning and evocative photography: Abandonedography. This link was sent with "history is awesome" as the comment, and yes, it is: Charlemagne's bones are (probably) real. Last one, and it's utterly fantastic: GoPro: Red Bull Stratos - The Full Story. Wait--I was wrong. Here's a story about Finns (those clever Finns) isolating a GPS signal from audio: Mystery signal from a helicopter. Genius!

From Michael M., and this is some heavy-duty number crunching: The Best Scoring Defenses In NFL History.
