Friday Links!

Leading off this week, from Jesse Leimkuehler, and this is both wildly interesting and entirely horrifying: Slut-Shaming, Eugenics, and Donald Duck: The Scandalous History of Sex-Ed Movies. Also, and this is a wonderful moment, it's This 102-year-old was a famous dancer in the 30s, but never saw herself on screen until today.

From Les Bowman, and this is an excellent read: How Success Almost Killed A Game, And How Its Creators Saved It.

From Thomas Fields, and this is the ultimate stick bomb: Guinness World Record - 30,849 Sticks - Largest Stick Bomb.

From Steven Davis, and this is fascinating: The Ingenious Design of the Aluminum Beverage Can. Also, and this is bizarre, it's How a ditty from a soft-core Italian movie became the Muppets’ catchiest tune. One more, and it's terrific: TYRANNOSAURS: Behind the Art with James Gurney. One more, and I've never seen these before (neither has Eli 13.8): Freeline Skates are Strangely Awesome.

From C. Lee, and this is outstanding: The golden ratio has spawned a beautiful new curve: the Harriss spiral. Next, and this is a fantastic read, it's Turning Ethiopia's desert green.

From Marc Klein, and this is very touching: Still In The Game.

Here is an absolutely insane video (and some equally insane photographs): An Absolutely Massive Volcano Is Exploding In Chile Right Now. Closing out the week, a bit of accuracy overkill: This Clock Only Loses One Second Every 15 Billion Years.
