Friday Links!

My email is a dumpster fire (again). I'm working on it. In the meantime, have a great weekend.

Leading off this week, from Eric Higgins-Freese, and I know how he feels: Squished Monkey Balls Win 2021 Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards.

This is an absolutely fantastic article: A physicist studied Ben Franklin’s clever tricks to foil currency counterfeiters

From Wally, and this is excellent: Why this "falling rocks" sign is more important than most.

This list looks a little suspicious, but there's some interesting data in here: The best cities for book lovers in 2022. 

From Meg McReynolds, and it's very, very clever: '90s Dad Thrillers: a List. Those are so brilliant (and #3 is an instant classic): 15 Disturbing Vintage Holiday Cards.

From Hennie, and I agree with all of this: I'm an American who immersed himself in the Cricket T20 World Cup and these are the 7 things I wish baseball would take from the sport.

From C. Lee, and it should surprise no one: The Great Organic-Food Fraud. Amazing: How a Safecracker Broke Into Prince's Locked Vault (they estimate that Prince has 8,000 unreleased songs). This is remarkable: The Boy Robot of 1774. This is fascinating: The 27 Inch Dolls that Saved Post-War Paris as the Fashion Capital. Who knew? Meet Lilli, the High-end German Call Girl Who Became America’s Iconic Barbie Doll. Amen: This is just to say...
