It is Friday, it’s 100 degrees outside, and people have sent in a whole bunch of links. Thanks, everyone!

From Julie: Archaeologists have found the world’s oldest cooking pottery (at least, the oldest for now. Who knows what lurks beneath?).

From Cassandra: The mystery of shamanism, and a history of Yeats’s fascination with magic.

From Zazoo: Oreos celebrate gay pride week, and Cher is writing a Broadway musical about her life.

From my mom: Bill Moyers on how communities can save libraries.

From Bunny: The world’s hardest sudoku puzzle!

From Chuck via Cassandra: A decent percentage of the population would try to befriend alien life, and most Americans think Obama would deal with aliens better than Romney.

And finally, for Cincinnati locals: How well do you know your city? I got about 40 out of 50 right; I have some quibbles with the test authors about what constitutes “central,” apparently.

Have a spiffy weekend, everyone! See you next week.
