Friday Links!

A little light, as usual, at the end of the year.

From C. Lee, and it's an excellent essay: An invisible baseball curves through Japanese literature. So absolutely true: How to Apologize Like a Tech Ghoul: 2019 Edition. Incredible: Famous Fluid Equations Spring a Leak. This is a fantastic article: I asked my students to turn in their cell phones and write about living without them.  William Sydney Porter alert: The History of O. Henry’s ‘The Gift of the Magi’.

From Eric Higgins-Freese, and this is incredible: The bushfires in Australia are so big they're generating their own weather — 'pyrocumulonimbus' thunderstorms that can start more fires.

From Wally, and elephant seals are big: Big Sea Lions on a Small Boat. This is a long and excellent read: Kazutaka Miyatake On Studio Nue And The Birth Of Real Robot Mecha Design. This is fascinating (the time ball): The invention that inspired a New York tradition. This is a chronicle of an epic, incredible meltdown: The Implosion of the RWA (Romance Writers of America).
