This is a cool toy… contrary to what cartoons taught me, if you dig a hole through the Earth in the continental United States you don’t come out in China.
It took me forever to read this post on the Freakonomics blog. Bill James, baseball guru, answers all of your questions. He’s got an interesting way of shooting down some stupid questions.
Also, in reference to Malcolm Gladwell’s fascinating article from a recent New Yorker, in which he discusses the multiplicity of brilliant ideas like calculus, here is a zombie survival guide. A couple guys and I TOTALLY set up a zombie preparedness plan on the wiki at work a year and a half ago.
This video of a man’s 41 hour ordeal in a New York elevator is chilling. I am chilled.
(WARNING: If you can’t stand the thought of a chocolate bunny being melted in several different ways, don’t watch the chocolate bunny video. Also, if you can’t fathom the thought of Peeps as marshmallow overlords, don’t click the peep link.)
Updated to add: Peeps for Passover.
I thought it was cute on Friday when I got a link to the MSN A-List blog entry about mustaches. Hahaha, I have a mustache and the internet says they might be cool in 2008. But it got downright creepy yesterday when their entry was about bacon. I like bacon. I think people think I like it more than I do, because I get about 2-3 bacon related links a week from friends. I can’t be the only bacon lover with a mustache that reads all the internet, but really, it is odd. Though, if MSN thinks you’re cool, how cool can you be.
(As an aside, apparently the MSN A-List blog prevents WordPress and Blogger extensions from working, preventing lazy bloggers from linking to them. Well, this lazy blogger loves bacon and his mustache too much to be thwarted.)
