Friday Links!

Leading off this week, from Frank Regan, and it's huge (at least to me): Unearthed Audio Reveals Beatles Discussed ‘Abbey Road’ Follow-Up.

This is a difficult story to read, but it's phenomenal: An Unbelievable Story of Rape.

Just boxing with horses: Report: Triple Crown Winner Justify Failed Drug Test Ahead Of Kentucky Derby.

From Ken Piper, and this is excellent: Practical game writing insight from No Man's Sky: Atlas Rises' Greg Buchanan. This is mesmerizing: Human speech may have a universal transmission rate: 39 bits per second. An excellent read: Ultimate Review: How Could mRNA Overtake all other Biologicals in Medicine?

From C. Lee, and this is amazing: How to 3D Print Some of the Smithsonian's Artifacts at Home. This is a fascinating perspective: How Prohibition Tossed a Wet Blanket on America’s Inventors. This is wild: 'You’re Not a Person if You Don’t Drink.' How This Tiny European Country Developed the World's Worst Drinking Problem. What a story: They were CIA-backed Chinese rebels. Now you’re invited to their once-secret hideaway. Big surprise: Blow to 10,000-hour rule as study finds practice doesn't always make perfect.

From Wally, and it's an interesting bit of history: How a Chinatown-by-the-Sea Popped Up on the Jersey Shore.
