Friday Links!

A beautiful week here. Have a great weekend, everyone.

From David Gloier, and it's bizarre: ‘Large’ creature — with 20 arms — found lurking in Antarctic sea. It’s a new species. This is great news: A new gray wolf pack is found 200 miles south of California's nearest-known pack. McMansions in China: See Inside a Ghost Town of Abandoned Mansions in China.

From Chris M., and this is fantastic (for orthopedists): The Greatest Pogo Stick the World Has Ever Seen.

From C. Lee, and this is deeply concerning: Innocent pregnant woman jailed amid faulty facial recognition trend. It seems like this never ends: How an unpatched Microsoft Exchange 0-day likely caused one of the UK’s biggest hacks ever. This is fascinating: Everyone Was Wrong About Antipsychotics. An excellent read: The Mysteries of Japan-Only Phones. This is parody in real-life at this point: Florida schools plan to use only excerpts from Shakespeare to avoid ‘raunchiness’. It's incredible how many countries we import food from: Top U.S. Food Imports by Origin Country. Very clever: Baldur’s Gate 3 Has the Nerdiest Licensing Agreement Ever
