Friday Links!

 From C. Lee, and it's an incredible story (and a very, very difficult read): Inside the Bitcoin Bust That Took Down the Web’s Biggest Child Abuse Site.

This is easy to remember: How to Convert Celsius to Fahrenheit Without Doing Any Math.

From Wally, and this is amazing: Amish Shed Move. This would be fantastic: Scientists Are Inching Closer to Creating Truly Hypoallergenic Cats. This is a very solid list: These Are The 15 Best Film Posters Of All Time. This is strangely mesmerizing: 13-Hour Overnight 2nd-Class Sleeper Ferry Trip Kobe Express.

From Brian B., and this is incredibly alarming: How the FDA's food division fails to regulate health and safety hazards

From C. Lee, and this is an important, though-provoking essay: WHY THE PAST 10 YEARS OF AMERICAN LIFE HAVE BEEN UNIQUELY STUPID. I'm not optimistic about our ability to do this: UN climate report: Carbon removal is now “essential”. This is quite a story: US arrests Japanese yakuza leader over alleged missiles-for-heroin plot. This is definitely not great: Kids Are Learning History From Video Games Now. Badass of the historical week: The Pirate Queen Who Avenged Her Husband’s Death on the High Seas. This is also thought-provoking: This Is How An Iconic 1980s Ad Doomed Women. Not what I thought I'd be reading about today, but I'm adaptable: Why Have Female Animals Evolved Such Wild Genitals?

From David Gloier, and it's a horrific story (another Penn State story): Untold.

From Mark H., and these are still great: Connections by James Burke (Seasons 1-3)

From Ken Piper, and it's a fascinating story: A tale of lost WW2 uranium cubes shows why Germany’s nuclear program failed
