The tourbillion — A watch which shows only day or night. Incidentially, Tourbillion is my working title for the third Mainspring Powell's | Amazon | Audible ] book. (Thanks to chriswjohnson.)

Wake up, smell the music with Japan perfume download — Smell-O-Vision finally comes to life, in Japan, home of all that is too weird to be cool and too cool to be weird. Best line: "NTT Communications also plans to conduct trials of another service that would allow mobile phone users to send files with scent attachments."

Earth's Crust Shows Long-Term Wiggle Room — New thinking about continental plates.

A Disease That Allowed Torrents of Creativity — The creative disease. Fascinating stuff about cognitive psychology, creativity and selective dementia. (Thanks to GS.)

1692 in America — A year of history in a year of blogging. Deeply cool. This is going on my daily blogroll.

Growing Pains for a Deep-Sea Home Built of Subway Cars — Luxury condos for fish. Interesting story about re-use. (Thanks to my dad.)

antitheism on delusions — A bit more fuel to the atheism fire — (Thanks to lt260.)

CFI Issues Critique of Civics Textbook — This is pretty interesting. I especially like: "the alleged influence of the religious concept of “original sin” on the structure of the Constitution."
