Things I have recently spotted that may be of interest to someone else:
(or something, perhaps art?) Wired has a gallery of Star Wars-themed carved pumpkins.
Wired reports that it is possible to see black printed numbers in color, under hypnosis.
Wired also reports that Harvard scientists, using records made by Henry David Thoreau, have discovered that some of the plants that were around Walden Pond are no longer there, probably because of the warmer temperatures.
(with a little politics) Henry Neufeld on religion and politics. Sample: "Then there is the little slogan 'In God we Trust' on our money. Some think it’s a national motto. Actually it’s a national joke. We don’t actually trust in God. In financial affairs we trust least of all."
He Lives on giving your possessions to the poor.
