Friday Links!

Here are some terrific links from, which is one of my favorite websites. First, a coal fire? What? The Story of the Titanic Keeps Getting Weirder.

This is utterly fascinating: Ultra-Precise Ice Core Sampling and the Explosive Cause of the Dark Ages.

Here's an almost endlessly deep rabbit hole, just in case you're trying to work today:’s Best of 2018, Parts 1 and 2.

This is such a nicely written story about being a boy and getting the gift you most wanted: Merry Christmas to all.

From DQ Fitness Advisor Doug Walsh, and it's a stunning visualization of data: Population Mountains.

From Steven Davis, and these are amazing: Jesse Rieser Captures American Christmas in All of Its Kitschy Splendor. This is one of my favorite story titles ever: Inside the Eccentric World of Ethical Taxidermy Art.

From C. Lee, and this is a wonderful short film: The Chaos of the Universe, Contained in a Watch. This is also absolutely terrific: Backgammon Taught Me Everything Akiko Yazawa. This is very much worth reading: The Gifts of Humility.

From Phil, and this is a stunning story (I read many feature stories from this writer when he was with Sports Illustrated, and they were uniformly terrific): I Used to Write for Sports Illustrated. Now I Deliver Packages for Amazon.
