Friday Links!

From C. Lee, a story about Threes and the staggering number of copies (and why): Meet the Clones.

From The Edwin Garcia Links Machine, and this is tremendous: Carl Sagan and Government (with Charlie Rose). Next, and this is a fantastic read, it's Couple Buy an Abandoned French Chateau, Start a Blog to share their Journey. I think I may have linked this last week, but it's so punishingly interesting that I'm doing it again: If the Moon Were Only 1 Pixel: A Tediously Accurate Scale Model of the Solar System. These next images are nothing short of incredible: the remote and little known rice terraces of yuanyang county in china’s yunnan province.

From Sebastian Mankowski, and this is excellent, plus it can keep you busy all afternoon: Byzantium: The Lost Empire - John Romer.

From Wallace, and these are some terrific concept sketches from none other than Hayao Miyazaki. Also, and Eli 12.8 would love to sample some of these entries: The Grilled Cheese Invitational. One more, and it's the most dinosaur images I've ever seen from one person: Nobu Tamura's Paleoart Portfolio.

From Hadley Belcher, and this is an utterly fascinating article: Megadeath in Mexico: Epidemics followed the Spanish arrival in the New World, but the worst killer may have been a shadowy native—a killer that could still be out there.

From Jeff Fowler, and this is hilarious: Jim Cummings Reads Star Wars as Darth Pooh.

Multiple excellent links from Jonathan Arnold this week. First, it's Photographer Creates Twisted Fairytales With Real Wildlife (bizarre yet compelling). Next, some absolutely wonderful stop-motion video: A Girl Named Elastika. This is astounding, really: Meet the seven people who hold the keys to worldwide internet security.
