Misc links

  • Photos of Sadam's palaces.
  • Ever wonder why you can't remember that ... what do you call it? Word, that's what I was thinking of. Honestly, this happens to me a lot. I even forgot my sisters name a few years ago at dinner with my family.
  • As usual, Strange Maps has a great collection of maps, from shipwrecks to the slow progress west of the mean U.S. population.
  • I was not aware that there was such a thing as sulfur mining. (HT to Freakonomics)
  • Another spoof paper has been accepted by a so called "refereed journal". I get a lot of unsolicited journal emails these days, and every one goes to the trash.
