Friday Links!From Steven Davis, and this is fascinating: Human Population Through Time. This, though, is even better: The Banach–Tarski Paradox. If you want more information, it's here: Banach–Tarski paradox. Next, and I've always wanted to understand this, it's How streets, roads, and avenues are different. Okay: A Perfume that Smells Like Poop? This is very, very strong for you music fans out there: The Art of Recording.
Here's a link from Simon Gardner (also written by Simon Gardner), and it's a terrific read: Do Polygraph Tests Actually Work?
From D.F. Prosser, and these are excellent reads:
Hollywood and Hacking: The 1980s - kid hackers, nerds and Richard Pryor.
Hollywood and Hacking: The 1990s - Techno, virtual reality and Steven Seagal’s Apple Newton
Hollywood and Hacking: Into the 21st Century - Real life hackers, computer punks and Hugh Jackman dancing
From C. Lee, and it's a Mark Twain kind of link: “The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco.” Say What? Says Who? Next, and I had no idea, it's Tools to Help Japanese Schoolchildren Find Balance: Unicycles.
