George Carlin use to say; "If you have 24 odds and ends on a table, and 23 fall off; What do you have left, an odd or an end"?
--- Thanks for the intersting question RonaldJosephCote.
Also it seems that one of the major questions about life on this planet has been aswered ( ie: Which came first, the Chicken or the Egg ? ). The answer is NEITHER ONE ! It seems that the Aoronis xui dinosaur came first. This chicken sized dinosaur lived over 100 million years ago and is a direct link between birds and the dinosaurs ( from the Jan/Feb 2014 issue of " Discover " magazine ).
You read high quality stuff, Cabadenwurt. :)
Good taste in magazines.
Thanks for the compliments Corrijean. I enjoy reading magazines that cover what is new in Science and also anything to do with History.
Popular Science is one of my favorite web sites. And lately I've been into http://phys.org/ . They have a lot of great articles.
I used to subscribe to PopSci, but too many of their articles were about really cool cars that you can't actually buy, IMO. Still they have interesting stuff.
I like phys.org, and sciencedaily.com as well.
--- Thanks for the new posts. I do have my guilty pleasures tho such as " Hemmings Motor News ", it has no practical purpose for me but I luv to read about antique cars and trucks.
I haven't subscribed to it in awhile, but their website has some pretty interesting articles. Here's a recent one I liked:
Thanks for the post Corrijean.
Sometimes people who are ( or were ) married come up with rather good jokes. Recently the man who had just gotten divorced was heard to remark to his ex-wife " You know that in truth the only Good-years that we had were the tires on our car "
It made me laugh. :)
A tediously accurate map of the solar system
One of my nieces wanted to build a scale of our solar system. I was there when my brother put down a pea, as earth, and tried to describe the relative positions of everything else. She still did it, but, instead of showing the relation, she described it.
I was impressed how fast a six year old got it. Then again, I'm old!
Some of the comments in that link are good-"most of space is just space".
That reminds me that I only scrolled through 2.2 billion kilometers so far. I was saving the rest for today.
I like the comments. They add a touch of humor.
