Sunspots 274

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

Science:Wired reports that orangutans are very energy-efficient, much more so than we are.

The New York Times reports that Titan, satellite of Saturn, has a large body of liquid that is shrinking in size.

Computing:Gizmo's Freeware has what looks like a comprehensive list of free on-line applications and services, with lots of categories.

Christianity:Kerry i am posts a brief test that lets us know if we are hypocrites.

That's an interesting test for hypocrisy but I think it's possible to devise a simpler one: Are we human? ;)

Take care & God bless

You are right, Weekend Fisher. Thanks.

Dr. LaBar, I enjoy reading your blog. Have you seen this?
The author is a Christian evangelist in the UK. He's summarizing a chapter of the Bible a day using only the 140 characters allowed in a Twitter post. It's a pretty interesting use of technology.

Thanks, Susan. I'm not (so far) into Twitter, and hadn't seen that, but I looked at it, and I'll mention it in the next Sunspots, God willing.

Good to hear from you.
