Friday Links!

From Jesse Leimkuehler, and this is an amazing story: The Rotting Underwater Ballroom of a Victorian Bernie Madoff.

From Ken Dean, and the technology here is fantastic: The Visual Trickery That Turns Hockey Rinks Into Lakes of Fire.

Okay, while I still find the idea that this could ever happen utterly remote, it's certainly interesting to read about: These Dreamers Are Actually Making Progress Building Elon’s Hyperloop.

From The Edwin Garcia Links Machine, and this is terrific: This fan-made Team Fortress 2 short has been a year in the making. Also, and holy cow, this is incredible: Molecular Cloud Barnard 68. Next, and this will blow your mind, it's WWII’s Strangest Battle: When Americans and Germans Fought Together. One more, and it's an explanation of a term we've all heard but may not all understand: The Fermi Paradox.

From Steven Davis, and this is a droll bit of detective work from a bygone era: How Jessica Mitford Exposed A $48m Scam From America’s Literary Establishment.

If you have fond memories of baseball trading cards, you'll want to read this: Sy Berger, Who Turned Baseball Heroes Into Brilliant Rectangles, Dies at 91.

From Chris Meyer, and this is quite brilliant: Abandoned Mercedes 300SL Found in Cuba Under a Banana Tree.

We can probably all use this: Fix Your Computer Hunch and Other Posture Problems in 30 Seconds.
