Friday Links!

Long, long week. And a few days of really intensive editing starting Friday morning.

This is a phenomenal read (and related to a link posted earlier this year): Has an Old Soviet Mystery at Last Been Solved?

Texas. So Texas: Tiger caught on video roaming around Houston neighborhood.

Phenomenal links from C. Lee. First, a clear explanation: Why We Can’t Build Our Way Out of the Semiconductor Shortage. You know, I think I'll pass: The Great Spam Experiment. This is a terrific read: Why have we forgotten one of WWII’s most important battles? Also terrific: How WWII shaped the crisis in Myanmar. This is incredibly depressing: This Is the Anti-Asian Hate Crime Capital of North America. This is an absolutely fantastic read: The Almost-Unbelievable True Story of the Sidewinder Missile.

Paragraph break for readability, but more links from C. Lee, and this one is so enlightening: We Found the Textbooks of Senators Who Oppose The 1619 Project and Suddenly Everything Makes Sense. Um, yuck: 9,000 fliers may have had reused swabs jammed up their noses in Indonesia. Geniuses: Man charged with joining the Capitol riot after the FBI saw his wife's Facebook posts bragging about it. This is fascinating: Walden Pond Is Full of Jellyfish, But Don’t Panic.

From David Gloier, and I almost broke a rib laughing: Russia Is Going to Try to Clone an Army of 3,000-Year-Old Scythian Warriors

From Wally, and this is very discouraging: This is a Map of America's Broadband Problem. I feel like he was a pretty courteous shopper: Shoplifting Seagull Raids Co-op To Nick Tuna Sandwich. This is fantastic: Short Film--Leviathan. Man, this is concerning: ‘It’s like the embers in a barbecue pit.’ Nuclear reactions are smoldering again at Chernobyl
