A rather nice review of METAtropolis

Feat of Plaster: 1924 — A rather strange image from the always-interesting Shorpy.

The Kalinin K-7 prototype, circa 1933 — An extremely improbable looking bit of pre-WW II Soviet aviation courtesy of x planes. I especially like the Flintstones' landing gear.

In case you missed it, NASA announces a very strange terrestrial life form with interesting implications for exobiologyxkcd comments on this as well.

Yet Another Example of Someone Pretending the "Internet" Makes Normal Economic Laws New and Special — Andrew Wheeler is hilariously sarcastic.

Julian Assange and the Computer Conspiracy; "To destroy this invisible government"
