Friday Links!

Cases like this should send people to prison: How Goodyear Hid Evidence Of 'The Worst Tire Made In History' Linked To At Least 9 Deaths.

Here's a nice palate cleanser after that awful first link, full of warmth and cheer: The World's Top Pokemon Go Player.

From C. Lee, and this is an important but depressing read: How the Elderly Lose Their Rights. This is remarkably bizarre: The Russian Computer That Ran On Water. And we built them, too: Like Water for Money. And, for the trifecta: Gardens as Crypto-Water-Computers.

From Wally, and this is an excellent and difficult read: MIA. Next, and holy cow: Al's Original Plasma Poppers. This is terrific: What Workers Around the World do for Lunch. We live in Canada, but it's called "Michigan": Tiger Tail Ice Cream: This orange and black licorice flavor is kind of a big deal in Canada..

From Steven Davis, and damn, the links are bleak this week: Haunting Photos from Japanese Internment Camps Show the Human Cost of Fear. This is fascinating and very, very strange: Kawanabe Kyōsai, Painter of Insanity.

From Ken Piper, and boy, there should be lots of people in prison over this: Drug companies submerged WV in opioids: One town of 3,000 got 21 million pills.

From Eric Higgins-Freese, and this is very funny: Deep learning technology is now being used to put Nic Cage in every movie.

From Chris M., and I guess it's about time: Monopoly is releasing a special edition of its iconic game that's made specifically for cheaters.

From Scott Sanders, and this is a fascinating read: Two theaters or 1,000? How to release an Oscar-winning film Seven out of eight best-picture winners followed this pattern for success.
