Friday Links!

Leading off this week, a wonderful story: The man who cycled from India to Europe for love,

This is an angry read, but essential (and it's from FiveThirtyEight): How The Fight To Ban Abortion Is Rooted In The ‘Great Replacement’ Theory.

This is a wonderful read: How Leonardo figured out the beauty of anatomy.

From Eric Higgins-Freese, and what a story: This World War I battlefield is on fire and exploding 100-year-old ordnance

From Wally, and this is spectacular: These 'Wizard of Oz' scenes remastered in 4K are stunning. Not my thing, but it does sound quite entertaining: My party of 4 spent $3,275 at a 3-star Michelin restaurant, and the 10-course meal felt like a fun tourist attraction

From C. Lee, and all I can say is "damn it": A neuroscience image sleuth finds signs of fabrication in scores of Alzheimer’s articles, threatening a reigning theory of the disease. For fans of the film, this is terrific: Production photo of Alfred Hitchcock’s North by Northwest. A fascinating follow-up: NORTH BY NORTHWEST: HITCHCOCK’S HOUSE ON MOUNT RUSHMORE. This is tragic: What Pregnancy and Childbirth Do to the Bodies of Young Girls. I wonder what the prevalent theory will be now: A Decisive Blow to the Serotonin Hypothesis of Depression. This is infuriating but also correct (in a legal sense): Police Have No Duty to Protect the Public. A pertinent question: ‘Are the police capable of changing?’: Data on racial profiling in California shows the problem is only getting worse. This is a solvable problem that can't be solved soon enough: Tech companies racing to prevent more kids dying in hot vehicles.
