Weekend Links: 50 Greatest Chase Sequences

Image credit: 

No "best of" list is going to be exhaustive or totally inclusive and they usually deserve a little side-eye but nevertheless this 20 Best Small Towns in America feature is pretty interesting. Did your town make the list? What great communities did they leave out?

Another list that will probably leave out your faves and be in the wrong order to your tastes but hey, that's just the way! And it's a fun start: the 50 Greatest Chase Sequences.
*
I really love this: underlined book quotes become clever illustrations. Some great pairings here.
*

Outrageous movie fan theories are illustrated in offbeat movie posters. Get out your tinfoil hats!
*
This is just a weird something I just discovered -- apparently FEMA uses something called the "Waffle House Index" as an internal metric of disaster severity, since apparently Waffle House weathers storms and chaos better than most. If the Waffle is up and running then everything will be ok!
*
I'm a big fan of animated GIFs anyway, but these created from Banksy's street art are really fantastic.
*
From my friend Chris, something for the map nerds: learn how map tiles work while confusing the heck out of yourself with Open Whatever Map (I wouldn't use this if actually searching for directions though). ?
*
How to easily make a 3D drawing (seemingly).
