Friday Links!

From C. Lee, and this clarifies the "dark chocolate is good for you" discussion somewhat: Chemists discover secret to dark chocolate's health benefits. Also, and this is a fascinating comparison of technologies: Gears of war: When mechanical analog computers ruled the waves. Here are several links about a very specific musical genre: piano for the left hand only. Have a look: Left Hand Piano Music,  Max Reger : 4 Spezialstudien ( for the Left Hand Alone ) - Takeo Tchinai,  Archiving Project for Left Hand Piano Music: Takeo TCHINAI.

From Eric Higgins-Freese, and this is a terrific explanation: Evidence of the Universe From Before the Big Bang? How an observational signature from Cosmic Inflation could herald the scientific revolution of the century. Next, and this certainly puts difficulty into perspective, it's The scale of the search for Flight MH370.

From The Edwin Garcia Links Machine, and this is an excellent video: Pentagon Wars - Bradley Fighting Vehicle Evolution. Next, and this is outstanding: Font Men. This is quite witty: Ballad of a WiFi Hero (McSweeney's and Vulture Exclusive).

From Wallace, and this is a terrific read (pun intended): The Scariest Library. Also, and it's a tremendously interesting read, it's I am Tim Berners-Lee. I Invented the WWW 25 Years Ago and I Am Concerned and Excited About Its Future.

Here's a brilliant bit of deception: How A UVa Fan Bluffed His Way Into The Huddle At The ACC Title Game.

From Kwadwo Burgee, and this is fantastic: If The Moon Were Only 1 Pixel.

From Chris J., and this is quite amazing: Europe 24 (European air traffic). Next, and this is incredible footage: Dji Phantom flies into Volcano.
