Link roundup

1. "A huge underground river appears to be flowing thousands of feet beneath the Amazon River, Brazilian scientists said Thursday." Via. UPDATE: Or maybe not.

2. "A Jewish charity co-founder who claimed he crisscrossed the globe rescuing Torahs as a 'Jewish Indiana Jones' surrendered Wednesday to face mail and wire fraud charges after authorities said he duped benefactors by fabricating dramatic stories about sometimes dangerous trips, including to concentration camp sites in Poland and Germany."

3. On Monday, I'm going to give away $25 Threadless credits to three of my Tumblr followers. (Most of the content I post there does not appear here.)
