Friday Links!

Leading off this week, and don't miss the fellow on the bicycle: Watch this snowball fight from 1897 for a jolt of pure joy. Also, and this is a spectacular read, it's How Sierra Was Captured, Then Killed, by a Massive Accounting Fraud.

From Wally, a long and interesting article about the Battle of Britain: The ‘Few’ Four Score On. This is remarkable: 60-year-old limit to lasers overturned by quantum researchers.

From Matthew T., and I can't even imagine what that war was like: 'It was cold, we got muddy': Sask. high school class digs 9-metre long WWI trench.

From C. Lee, and it's a fascinating bit of history: The 200 Millisecond Mission: Inside the Secret CIA Plan to Steal Soviet Missile Data. I really enjoy articles on somewhat obscure subjects like this: The cheap pen that changed writing forever. This is a great read (it's not anti-vax): The strange ingredients found in vaccines. I would definitely shop here: Shoppers at Dublin Grocery Store Glimpse Viking History Beneath Their Feet. A terrific article (she recently passed away): Cecilia Chiang, in Her Own Words.

From Brian, and these are both terrible and occasionally hilarious: Upcoming Oreos.
