Friday Links!

Leading off this week, and these are astonishing, it's Inuit Coastline Maps Carved from Driftwood. And here's something silly: The spudly history of Mr. Potato Head.

From Eric Lundquist, and it's been a long time coming: Mechanisms of slab avalanche release and impact in the Dyatlov Pass incident in 1959.

From C. Lee, and we all have days like this: Seinfeld: The Opposite (Clip). This is every bit as fantastic as you'd expect: The Oral History of 'Guitar Hero'. This isn't good: A big hurdle for older Americans trying to get vaccinated: Using the internet. Science fiction nerd alert: “Warp speed,” “Prime Directive” predate Star Trek, per new reference tool.
