Friday Links!

A little light this week, working from Austin, but some good stuff regardless.

Leading off this week, from Tim Jones, and this is a wonderful, riveting story: The Last Death-Defying Honey Hunter of Nepal.

From Steven Davis, and this is both awesome and chilling: The Apprehension Engine: An Instrument Designed to Play the Music of Nightmares. This is very cool: The School of British Accents. This is very true: The Upside-Down Bow, and Why It's Valuable to Play in Ways You Never Would on Stage.

From C. Lee, and this is a terrific story: The voice actor who didn't know he was working on Fallout 4. Also, and this is just part one, it's The complete history of the IBM PC, part one: The deal of the century.

From Wally, and this is fantastic: Amazing Street Performer. Here's an interesting short article on game design: Design Flow: Kill Your Darlings.

From Meg McReynolds, and this is hilarious: AI Trying To Design Inspirational Posters Goes Horribly And Hilariously Wrong.

From Tim Jones, and this guy makes a living from having the most godawful things sting him. This time, it's the second most painful sting in the world: Stung by a tarantula hawk.

I'm ending this week with a link from C. Lee, and it's both horrifying and incredibly depressing, so be fully warned. It's also a great read: How the Death of a Muslim Recruit Revealed a Culture of Brutality in the Marines.
