Friday Links!

We're limping along this week, obviously, but here's an abbreviated link set for everyone. Again, thank you for the incredible kindness you've shown Eli and me this week.

C. Lee contributed in a big way. First, and let's all stick it to the man, it's His boss said the spy camera proved he was lazy. His response was brilliant. This is brilliant: Group uses extra clothing, turbans to rescue stranded hiker. This is terrific (from the Digital Antiquarian): I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream. This is tremendously thoughtful (about C.S. Lewis): The Problem(s) of Susan. This is helpful: Ultra vs. High Settings in PC Games or: Why Ultra Quality Settings are Dumb. And if you think that's dumb, boy, have I got something for you: Congratulations, Mini, You Made The Stupidest Turn Signals Ever.

Bond. James Bond (nerds): You only live once: Epidemiologists analyze health risks in all the James Bond films. This is quite amazing: Can anyone explain the physics behind this? From the comments, I learned that centrifugal force is not actually a "force," and the correct explanation is centripetal force.

From Wally, and it's excellent: CG short film on the extinction of the dinosaurs | "Dinosaurs: The true story" - by P-L. Aeberhardt
