Link roundup

1. "Pixar in a Box"

A collaboration between Pixar Animation Studios and Khan Academy. Sponsored by Disney.
2. "Earth’s ancient history is full of giant versions of modern animals. Evolutionary forces (competition for resources, changes in climate) pushed these species to become incredibly large. And I’m not just talking about giant dinosaurs - there were huge mammals and marsupials too."

3. Maybe they haven't found the Malaysian flight:
When a wing section of a Boeing 777 washed up on the Indian Ocean island of La RĂ©union last month, the Malaysian government quickly ascribed the part to missing Malaysian Airlines Flight 370. But an ongoing investigation has failed to verify this claim, and the story just keeps getting weirder.
4. These The Force Awakens alien character action figures have a real vintage feel.

5.  Panther enthusiastically teething on a human hand.
