Friday Links!

A real links blowout this week! 

Clearly, this dog should have been dancing to Prince: Doberman copying Michael jackson's dance moves

From Patrick R., and the debate continues: Is it the Irish goodbye, the French exit, or to leave “the English way”? Depends where you live

From C. Lee, and these are quite beautiful: Illuminated Paintings of Tokyo After Dark by Keita Morimoto. Who even knew this was a thing? Dream coat: My quest to own a custom-made version of the Harris Tweed topper from Withnail and I. This is a fantastic read: This MiG Super Fighter Terrified NATO. Then a Soviet Pilot Stole One. This sounds a bit like the banana crisis: Coffee as we know it is in danger. Can we breed a better cup? Here's a bit of forgotten history: Americans Once Celebrated Thanksgiving with Tricks, Treats, and Mayhem. This is a wonderful article: 1999: King of Dragon Pass. "Idiot Fascist" is redundant: Warhammer 40K Tells Idiot Fascists Having a God Emperor Is Bad, Actually. This is tremendous: This Woman Inspired One of the First Hit Video Games by Mapping the World’s Longest Cave

From Guy Byars, and it's the follow-up to the genius who put himself on a big sandwich board: and now, a sponshorship.

From Wally, and this looks pretty fantastic: Why a toaster from 1949 is still smarter than any sold today. There are some very clever costumes in here: Photos: The Best Halloween 2021 Costumes On The NYC Subway. This is something: MONTREAL - Giant Marionettes Parade. My brain really can't even process this: World's first living robots can now reproduce, scientists say.

From Chris Meadowcraft, and these are so witty: Japan's Mundane Halloween Costumes

From The Finder of Things, Esq. John Harwood, a fascinating bit of NASA trivia: WHERE DID THE NASA EXPRESSION STEELY-EYED MISSILE MAN COME FROM?

From Meg McReynolds, and Katie Nolan is a national treasure: Kenny Mayne and Katie Nolan take on the National Dog Show | NBC Sports. Honestly, I might pay more for the failed images: Bonus: the advent calendar images that didn't work out

From John Willcocks, and it's stunning: Scientists claim big advance in using DNA to store data
