McSweeney's reviews Good Night, Moon — Snerk.

Mammatus Clouds Over Olympic Valley — I've actually seen these in real life once, in Texas. It makes for a very weird sky.

Locomotive Breath: 1906 — A cool shot of Salem, MA from Shorpy. Mmm, trains.

Switchable Metamaterial Makes Itself InvisibleA metamaterial that turns itself off could dramatically improve magnetic resonance imaging. Not in the casual, everyday sense of 'invisible', but this is sill extremely cool. Yes, we are living in the future. Any questions?

Water, Water Everywhere — A new view of the solar system.

Top Five Myths about the Middle East Protests — Juan Cole is interesting and informative.

I must say I am pretty surprised about the abundance of water throughout the Solar System, too. It bodes well for life forms on other worlds, I think.
