Friday Links!

Happy New Year and the links drop was huge this week.

Leading off this week, and it's relevant again: The 10 tactics of fascism

This is a terrific read: A “war of experts”: Revisiting the infamous 19th-century Flores Street poisonings.

From Brian Witte, and it's absolutely one of the most incredible stories I've ever heard: Emile Leray Survived The Desert By Building A Motorcycle From His Broken Car.

From David Gloier, and what a beast: Earth’s Oldest Ocean Giant Was a Reptile With an Eight-Foot Skull. This is excellent: Noblewoman’s tomb reveals new secrets of ancient Rome’s highly durable concrete. This is a fascinating read: A Neuroscientist Prepares For Death

From Wally, and this is an amazing illusion: 3D Schröder Staircase. Here's your bass badass for the week: When they say you have too many strings (a one-string bass solo). This happened in Boulder County, and it's an amazing video: Costco evacuation due to Marshall Fire. This is a fascinating article: The Tenacious Quest to Find the World’s Best Rice. This is clever: The Edgelord - RPG Philosophy (The Gang Presents).

From DQ Story Advisor And Finder Of Things John Harwood, and it's a great read: Central Austin’s Baffling Street Grid Is Entirely One Man’s Fault

From C. Lee, and it's an amazing story: That Christmas When Parisians Ate the Zoo. If you ever wondered how Lunar New Year works, it's your lucky day: The Lunar New Year: Rituals and Legends.

True and very funny: How Batman Obsessively Labelled his Gadgets in the 1960s (this is has a strange parallel with Wile E. Coyote, if you think about it). This is so good: The Accident Clause.
