Friday Links!

Leading off this week, from Rob Swaringen, and it's a magnificent read: The Quest to Break America’s Most Mysterious Code—And Find $60 Million in Buried Treasure.

This is a tremendous piece of writing and what a story: How Two Kentucky Farmers Became Kings Of Croquet, The Sport That Never Wanted Them.

This is excellent: A Famous Argument Against Free Will Has Been Debunked. Also, for entertainment purposes, go to The Atlantic and search on "free will."

This is a fantastic read: What it was like to fly the baddest airplane the world has ever known.

On a side note, Malcom Gladwell has the intellectual rigor of a snow pea: Malcolm Gladwell Goes On Bill Simmons's Podcast To Dust Off The Oldest, Dumbest Defense Of Joe Paterno.

From C. Lee, and this is theoretically simple: A space elevator is possible with today’s technology, researchers say (we just need to dangle it off the moon). This is fascinating: Who Gets Emily Dickinson? This is absolutely amazing: MIT’s color-changing ink could let you customize your shoes. This is a terrific read: What wartime ‘munitionettes’ can teach us about burnout BURNOUT. Incredible: When the Pianos Went to War. Quite possibly, the friendliest creatures in existence: When you’re chill with everyone.

From Wally, and this is both repetitive and mesmerizing: Formula Offroad Norway, Skien 2019! Day 2. These are quite amazing: 3D latte art. Hope for some: Vanilla Boom Is Making People Crazy Rich — And Jittery — In Madagascar. Linked entirely for the social media comment with "gibbet" in it: 'Grim reaper' stolen from Russian street.
