I am SHERlocked.
http://www.technologyreview.com/view/428729/mathematics-of-sudoku-leads-to-richter-scale-of/ I unfortunately never got around to thinking about the mathematics of sudoku more than idly, not even bothering to program a sudoku solver. Oh well. At least I can read the papers.
Is vacuuming sufficient to get rid of cat allergens? I hope it is.
We are so far behind on Futurama.
Okay, I just set up change of address stuff with the post office. Begin mail forwarding!
Do The Math remains one of my favorite web-logs: http://physics.ucsd.edu/do-the-math/2012/08/solar-data-treasure-trove/ All hail science! Though it does not make us better people. Also, a convenient fact: the “standard sun” deposits 1000 W/m² under clear conditions. The more you know!
I'm uncertain about whether the recent XKCD-What-If got the magnitude of the forces correct, but I'm too out of practice to do the back-of-the-envelope calculations.
Some project that belonged to my now-retired coworker that the CHRO was interested in sporadically popped up again. It never got finished and nobody maintained it because the CHRO never got around to supporting it, but now she's like, "Hey, this thing I wanted, does it have this stuff? Is it around?" Nope, you didn't support the project, esp. as evidenced by the fact that it's been five months since my coworker left and this is the first she's mentioned it, but maintaining the database would have required probably 5-10 hours of work from somebody each month.
I believe in evolution, vaccines, and anthropogenic global warming. I think the only one I don't link to much on facebook is evolution, but that's only because nothing terrible is happening in the world because of evolution-denialists (sadly, we cannot blame antibiotic-resistant bacteria on them), vaccine-denialists kill babies and global warming denialists perpetuate global warming. The worst thing that happens when you deny evolution is that you don't understand biology, and what layman needs to understand biology? Or perhaps your children will abandon your religion because evolution is obviously true and your religion apparently conflicts with it, and is therefore obviously false. Live by the sword, die by the sword.
What makes a man turn neutral?
