Link Dump #5

Any like clockwork I missed another publication date, although being my own editor I don’t think I’ll hold it against myself (unlikely)

MuscleWiki – This was a neat find, and one I haven’t used once since bookmarking. Pick a body part, and this site will show you how to work it girl!

Corona (satellite) – I’ll be honest, I’m drawing a blank here on why I bookmarked this. It’s a spy satellite, used by the CIA to do CIA stuff but other than the /r/midlyinteresting aspect of it, I have no idea why I would save it ¯\_(?)_/¯

Silent Cal – US President Calvin Coolidge was known as “Silent Cal” but the most interesting morsel from his presidency was this:

Coolidge Effect – Okay, maybe Cal’s pranks were the second most interesting morsel from the Coolidge presidency. After you read the definition, head on over the the Wikipedia page to read how it came about!

The Coolidge effect is a biological phenomenon seen in animals, whereby males exhibit renewed sexual interest whenever a new female is introduced to have sex with, even after cessation of sex with prior but still available sexual partners.

Disclosure – When A Fire Starts To Burn (Official Video) – I love this song from 2013, and the little behind the lyrics by motivational speaker Eric Thomas.

Helminthic therapy – It’s gross, but an interesting concept for fighting auto-immune diseases. Related South Park: Your Mom Has C Diff
