Sunspots 85

Things I have recently spotted that may be of interest to someone else:
Humor: From Joyful BC (who got it from someone else) Christmas Carols for (or by) disturbed people.
Politics: An interesting article on "evolutionism" and (political) conservatism. The description of U. S. vs. European conservatism is worth a read by itself.
Computing: Wired on those spam e-mails, urging you to buy cheap stocks of companies you never heard of.
From PBS's Nova: 18 ways to make a baby.
From St. Andrews University, Scotland, a mathematics page: the famous curves index, showing, among other things, the curves, and the equations which generate them.
From a professor at Cal Tech, a snowflakes and snow crystals web site.
How to use water in your household in an environmentally friendly way.
A discussion of magic in fantastic literature, from a Christian standpoint.
The University of Colorado at Boulder has a sheet music site, with hundreds of public domain songs available.

An article in the Journal of Religion and Popular Culture on Gandalf as Christ-figure. The author gives evidence that the Peter Jackson films added symbolism to that already found in Tolkien's books, which makes this identification even more apparent.
Christianity: This week's Christian Carnival is here. (For information on locating these Carnivals, see here.)
When I don't tell where I found an item above, I either found it directly, or was probably pointed to it by the Librarian's Internet Index, SciTech Daily, or Arts and Letters Daily. All of these sources are great.
Thanks for reading! Keep clicking away.
