Welcome back, Friday. How have you been?
It’s link time everybody!
“Photo essay of early Reagan-era, unemployed, drunk 20 yr olds with too much time on their hands. The privilege of youth.”

P.S. That also reminds me of this gallery of snapshots from 1979 Jersey Shore.

Cabel Sasser annually catalogues the weirdest, goofiest, most unintentionally funny or bizarre fireworks titles that are on the market that year.
He’s been doing this since 2007. They’re pretty great.
As for long reads, I was intrigued by two this week:
A takedown of the fear-mongering regarding perceived terrorist causes of last week’s major computer system outages. (The focus is instead on the more mundane “badly maintained code”.)
“How two technology consultants helped drug traffickers hack the Port of Antwerp”
I love a good heist story. 🙂
Oh and by the way, there’s a remastered print of Brad Bird’s The Iron Giant screening in a few actual theatres starting in September. That excites me.
Have a lovely weekend, Friday fans.
