Sunspots 583

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

Christianity: Ken Schenck reminds us that we must work out our salvation with fear and trembling.

Computing: Gizmo's Freeware reports on a program that lets you listen to radio over the internet, and record it.

Health: The New York Times reports that major causes of death are still around, but that they are striking later in people's lives, and we aren't sure why.

Humor: 19 jokes for intelligent people, mostly chemistry-oriented.

Politics: FiveThirtyEight examines the data on shootings of people by the police, and concludes that the likelihood of being so shot has not gone down, in spite of recent widely publicized cases.

Science: FiveThirtyEight discusses very loud sounds.

Listverse tells us about 10 things that our brains do for us, more or less automatically.

Great article by Ken Schenk. I've often wondered about that verse; it can be interpreted to favor a works based religion, but I was pretty sure it didn't mean to be.

My husband and I enjoyed the jokes! Between an English major and a science major, we got them all!

Thanks, FancyHorse.

Glad you got the jokes!

Schenck has done a lot of good stuff.
