How to Fight Monkeys. From Slate, via jaylake. It's good to know that I kind of got it right in "The Very Difficult Day of Inspector Thirumala Naidu".
Peeling Bananas from the bottom up. From Slate. Amaze friends and family with your banana-peeling technique, then say "well, it's what the monkeys do" (speaking of monkeys).
Giant Women and Little Towns (from WebUrbanist). WebUrbanist is an excellent site. The Giant Women fetishists will have a field day with these pictures.
HowToons (BoingBoing article). Cartoons covering how to do projects. I'm thinking this is an excellent holiday gift for kids, those with kids, and your kids' science teacher.
Running the numbers on a pandemic (from Slashdot). What could happen in a big outbreak? For me, a good reference for TCE.
RIP, Classic MacOS, 1984-2007. Classic MacOS, you and I have spent many years together. I shall remember you with fondness.
