Friday Links!

If you've ever played Tetris (oh, come on! You must have played Tetris), you really, really need to see this: Tetris Mastermind Beats the Game With All Blocks Invisible.

From The Edwin Garcia Links Machine, and this is stunning: Nazis’ vast, secret WMD facility uncovered in Austria. Also, and this is entirely adorable, it's Cory Lopez and the World’s Cutest Surf Session. Next, and this is beautiful: Journey Part 1. Next, and this is very clever, it's The Incredible Hulk Hands.

From Michael M., and this is bizarre: Mystery Giant Sharks May Be Everywhere. Also, and this is even more bizarre: 51 years after wreck, 7-inch car part found in man's arm.

This is quite hypnotic: Watching an umbrella get hand made is more captivating than I thought.

From David Byron, and this may be the badass of the century (and she's only seven): 7-Year-Old Miraculously Survives Plane Crash in Inclement Weather. This is a tragic story, but her will is remarkable.

From Steven Davis, and this is fascinating: Rand McNally: Globemakers.

I never knew any of this: How Soap Works.

From C. Lee, and this is an incredible story: Blue versus Green: Rocking the Byzantine Empire: When the spectators at Rome's spectacular circuses split into factions, it threatened to bring the Eastern Empire down. The day was saved by Byzantium's remarkable empress, but only at the cost of 30,000 lives. Next, and this is very touching: A Calligrapher Brings an Elegant Touch to an Officer’s Funeral. One more, and this is fascinating: Even People With “Perfect Memory” Can Be Tricked Into Recalling Fake Events.
