Friday Links!

From Meg McReynolds, and I will not be doing this anytime soon: You (Probably) Can’t Everest Mount Everest. I just thought of this: can you mount Everest? I crack myself up.

From DQ Reader Gloria, and it's fascinating: The Pastry A.I. That Learned to Fight Cancer.

From Dan Fitch, and it's a difficult but excellent read: How We Survived COVID-19 in Prison.

From Jonathon W., and these pictures are amazing: Underwater Photos Taken During Blackwater Dives Frame the Atlantic Ocean’s Stunning Diversity.

From Wally, and this is amazing footage of a tsunami: Fishermen Run For Their Lives. This would be a good thing for every town to have: Covid: Japan town builds giant squid statue with relief money. This is delightful: MOZART ON BANJO GUITAR (Eine Kleine Nachtmusik/Serenade in G) - Luca Stricagnoli.

A slew of links from C. Lee this week. First, and it's an excellent read, it's Tiberius, Imperial Detective. This is fascinating: How Personal Ads Helped Conquer the American West. I didn't know this was a thing that existed (coffee jelly): Make a Historic Boston Dessert That Became a Japanese Favorite. This looks like a terrific autobiography: Young Man Inside an Old Man. To no one's surprise: Damage found after late AFLW player Jacinda Barclay’s brain donated for concussion research. Very, very Canadian: Internet Outage in Canada Blamed on Beavers Gnawing Through Fiber Cables

Given the context, I think this is one of the greatest guitar solos of all time (Tom Petty and Dhani's faces are the best): Prince’s earth-shattering “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” solo gets a director’s cut with even more Prince.
