I haven’t anything substantial prepared for tonight, so just a brief salmagundi:

Fun with sound waves.

A lexical-distance graph of European languages. (Where’s Basque? So far out it’s off the chart, maybe.)

— “Exponential medicine”.

VDH vs. Pajama Boy.

— Amazing to see this, from the Times’s senior science writer. Is the edifice starting to crumble under the weight of too much reality?

The strange art of Zdzislaw Beksinki.

MSLSD.

A puffin with its beak full of eels. And more.

— What? You aren’t reading The Fortean Times?

— Now this I’ll pay taxes for.

— Yet another political-personality test. (I’m 85% you-know-what.)

AP computer-science exam race/sex data.

Some awkward Father’s Days on the way.

A thousand-year-old chess problem.

The DOJ’s idea of justice, or Auster’s First Law.

Heather Mac Donald discusses the high culture of the West, and where it’s headed.

    I’m a sucker for online quizzes. I took the one in Time. I expected to hear that I am somewhere between Pajama Boy and Abbie Hoffman. My score: 85% conservative and 15% liberal. Go figure. Maybe it’s because I think fusion cuisine sucks and I’m proud of America’s history.
