The gaming-and-writing post has an interesting comment thread — I have more to say about this later, as well.

Scalzi on the Creation Science Museum — He is much kinder than I. I find Creationism fatuous and intellectually offensive. Of course, I also find disco fatuous and intellectually offensive.

A Spy’s Path: Iowa to A-Bomb to Kremlin Honor — Apparently I am all about the Cold War lately. (Thanks to my dad for the link.)

Three Panel Soul is killer funny — Who knew renewable energy could be such a riot? (Not utterly work safe.)

What the f***? — Swearing, culture and you. (Thanks to willyumtx.)

The World's Smallest Radio — "A tiny radio made out of a single nanotube could find use in biological and environmental sensors." Um, wow.

Giraffe vs plane

I've been Boing Boinged — Look carefully at the URL, btw.

The effects of your initials on life performace — I'm not sure this is statistically significant, but it sure is weird. Like nominative determinism, but making far less sense.

Yesterday was the 37th anniversary of the Exploding Whale Incident — A little piece of Oregon history many would prefer to forget.

from the nanotube radio article. --

To do that, however, the nanotube radio would have to work as a transmitter. Right now, it is only configured as a receiver, but Zettl says that "the same physics would work as a transmitter."

Thereby palming the same card that Drexler always hides: how do you *power* your all-powerful nanomachine? In this case. I canactually see some possibilities, but they would almost all immediately move the device out of the nano regime.

Maybe I'm just cranky this morning,

You only toured one and left the other unexplored? That's just not right :)

That swearing article is fascinating.
