Friday Links!

Leading off this week, an obscure and epic read: Cultivating Minds: The Psychological Consequences of Rice versus Wheat Farming

If you're trying to decide what to get me for the holidays, wonder no more: You can now buy a flame-throwing robot dog for under $10,000

You can step through these images, and they're remarkable: EPIC: Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera.

From David Gloier, and I certainly doubt it: A Scientist Says He Has the Evidence That We Live in a Simulation.

From Wally, a bit of lesser-known WWII history: Les Portes-Avions French Carrier Planes. An excellent use of Pareto theory:  Finally, someone used Pareto’s economic theories to find the best Mario Kart 8 racer

From C. Lee, and this is embarrassing: Hackable Intel and Lenovo hardware that went undetected for 5 years won’t ever be fixed. Like C. Lee mentioned in his email, we could use Upton Sinclair right now: Avian flu outbreak raises a disturbing question: Is our food system built on poop? This is helpful: What’s safe to eat? Here is the pesticide risk level for each fruit and vegetable. This has quite the smell: She was fired after not endorsing Splenda-filled salads to people with diabetes. Why? Get off the lawn, kids: Things Used to Work in This Country. This is true: Podcasting "Capitalists Hate Capitalism". A thought provoking read: How to keep Earth from being cooked by the ever-hotter Sun. This is fascinating: The ingenious wines birthed from black volcanic craters. A sensational read: Django’s Journey: The Making of the Nomadic King of French Swing.
