Friday Links!

From Steven Davis, and this is very Orwellian: Dark Patterns are designed to trick you (and they’re all over the Web). This is quite a surprise: The AP asked the government for proof that flossing works. The answer: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. Also, and this is thought-provoking: How we think about e-waste is in need of repair. Here's one more: The $3500 Shirt - A History Lesson in Economics.

From Tim Lesnick, and yes, it's a stuffed frog museum: Froggyland.

From Wally, and this is terrific: Nightwork: the extraordinary, exuberant history of rulebreaking at MIT. This is tremendously ingenious: Smart Parking Solution.

This is from C. Lee, and Norway is very cool: Norway considers giving mountain to Finland as 100th birthday present. Also, and this is an excellent read, it's When Design is Hostile on Purpose: Intentionally Unpleasant Structures are Designed to Shape Human Behavior.

From Brian Witte, and this is fascinating: Humpback whales around the globe are mysteriously rescuing animals from orcas.

From Matt Kreuch, and this is amazing: ROCK'ING FOR 30 DAYS: One Man's Journey to Eat and Train Like Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
