Friday Links!

Leading off, a fantastic story I saw mentioned over at Boing-Boing: 17 Rare Pics Reveal A Fake Rooftop Town Built To Hide Boeing’s Factory From Japanese Air Strikes

From Wally, and these are haunting: Abandoned Golaski Labs. Timely, for some of us: How to Reduce Your Chances of Hitting a Deer. Thought-provoking (although, personally, I feel like the Enneagram, which is somewhat similar, has been really helpful): Why the Myers-Briggs test is totally meaningless.

From Meg McReynolds, and this is going to get much better every year now: AI generated halloween candy.

From C. Lee, and yup, these are all bad: What Will Happen to America if Trump Wins Again? Experts Helped Us Game It Out. I always stream albums: ‘There’s endless choice, but you’re not listening’: fans quitting Spotify to save their love of music. A terrific read: In chess, a long history of cheating, chicanery and Cold War shenanigans. This is brilliant: With Leaps and Bounds, Parkour Athletes Turn Off the Lights in Paris. This seems like a logical step: Microsoft Is Adding an AI Art Generator to Office Suite. I'd buy it: Store clerk in Japan cracks up foreign customers with unusual English explanation of “squid”. None near me, unfortunately: Here Are the 100 Best Pizzerias in the World, According to a New Ranking. This is just wonderful: Gustavo Dudamel conducts the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra’s phenomenal version of Leonard Bernstein’s “Mambo” from West Side Story.
