Link roundup

1. "We're the Only Animals With Chins, and No One Knows Why"

“Little pig, little pig, let me come in,” says the big, bad wolf. “No, no, not by the hair on my chinny chin chin,” say the three little pigs. This scene is deeply unrealistic and not just because of the pigs' architectural competence, the wolf's implausible lung capacity, and everyone's ability to talk.

The thing is: Pigs don't have chins. Nor do any animals, except for us.
2. "Politico is about to lose three of its most powerful and longtime leaders."

3. "Ancient Babylonian astronomers calculated Jupiter’s position." Via.

4. 80's toys photographed.
