Friday Links!

Leading off this week, and it's amazing: Turtles Have Been Vocalizing All This Time. Why Did We Not Listen?

From Ken Piper, and this is brilliant: Researchers used a decommissioned satellite to broadcast hacker TV. This is an incredible discovery, if confirmed: Tunnel discovered beneath Egyptian temple may lead to Cleopatra's tomb, archaeologist says. What a story: Texas couple gets engaged after finding missing ring during tornado cleanup. To no one's surprise (isn't Elon Musk the stupidest genius ever?): Here’s how a Twitter engineer says it will break in the coming weeks

From Terry W., and this is incredible: Paralyzed Patients Walk Again After Life-Changing Nerve Stimulation Treatment. A technological achievement: US Regulators to Certify First Small Modular Nuclear Reactor Design.

From C. Lee, and I never expected it to happen (although I understand why): Gen Z Never Learned to Read Cursive. This is so incredibly inept: KFC Mistakenly Encouraged Its German Customers to Celebrate Kristallnacht With Crispy Chicken. This is fascinating: The Man Who Quietly Built a Massive Archive of Artists’ Deaths. This is a lovely story: At 80 years old, ‘last flower woman in Ginza’ still going strong. This is a terrific read: The Hilarious History of 'OK'. What a great idea: France Requiring Solar Panels to Cover Parking Lots by 2028. This is an even better idea: This Community Candy Shop Serving Impoverished Kids Just Won Japan’s Most-Prestigious Design Award. I'm not even sure I'm surprised: A deputy mistook a blind man’s cane for a gun. He ended up in jail anyway.

From Wally, and I saw all these on my visit in April: It's the World Cup of crisps! I totally approve of this PR stunt: Volkswagen built a Star Trek captain’s chair that goes 12mph. The annual list: The Game Awards 2022 Finalists. I'd never even heard of this before: Inspirational passion or paid-for promotion: can BookTok be taken on face value? That's a lot of moons: All MOONS of URANUS and NEPTUNE ► 3D Size Comparison ◄
