Friday Links!

Leading off this week, a fascinating read: Do birds have language? It depends on how you define it.

From lummoxjr, and it's a video of stories from a much-beloved game: The Suffocation Worm - Space Station 13 Stories.

From Wally, and it's fascinating: The surprising pattern behind color names around the world. Also, and this is huge, it's The migraine breakthrough. This sounds like something from the Onion, but it's a real thing: Georgia toddler diagnosed with extremely rare uncombable hair syndrome

From Eric Higgins-Freese, and it's a terrifically obscure bit of history: Waging war on the Jamaican patty: Canada’s bizarre beef with the delicious snack | Patty vs Patty.

From David Gloier, and it's an excellent read: In Search of Troy.

From C. Lee, and it's an excellent essay: A Philosopher in the Kitchen. And the follow-up: Dinner at the Elusive ‘Otto's’: The Disappointing Details. Hard pass: When Groundhog Was on the Menu in Punxsutawney. Water: The Purest of Them All. A fascinating bit of history: When Hershey Created a Chocolate Bar for the U.S. Army
