Sunspots 239

Things I have recently spotted that may be of interest to someone else:


Note: I almost always post "Sunspots" on Wednesdays, but have other plans for tomorrow's post, this time.

Humor:

(or something) Someone alerted the Strange Maps blogger (that's what his blog is about) to a field in Nebraska that's exactly the shape of, well, Nebraska.

Music:
(or something) Wired reports that an inventor is connecting earth tremors to musical instruments, to create earth-born (!) music.

Computing: 
Wired reports that a (so far) anonymous Wikipedia editor is being sued for claiming that an actor is homosexual, when the actor denies this. This case raises the issue of web anonymity, of course, and also the issue of whether calling someone homosexual when they aren't is a prosecutable offense. (Would the reverse claim also be?)

Literature:
(Art, actually) Wired reports on an artist that creates art objects out of old hard drives.

Christianity:
The Beautiful Feet blogger believes he may have found a Christmas prediction in the book of Job, of all places.

More on Jan, who, as I reported previously, finally got around to paying her tithe.

I'm surprised that you didn't comment on my Christmas article on ATLIBERTYTOSAY.COM - I was really looking forward to your opinion.

Thanks for these notes - I reviewed each one.
