Here is this week’s list of blog posts, videos, comics and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.
The Stars Died for You. I’ve never thought about physics this way before. The last line is completely unnecessary but the clip as a whole is well worth watching.
Best Friend Injustice and the Hardships of Polygamy. The concept of having one and only one best friend is so bizarre. Yes, sometimes we grow closer to one person than we do to another. There’s nothing wrong with that. I don’t understand why there can only be one, though, or why it needs a special word to describe it. Why not let each friendship evolve naturally into the form it was meant to take?
Positive TV. What if there was a television channel dedicated to telling us that we’re wonderful?
The Changing U.S. Food Supply. If only these graphs had compared eating habits across socioeconomic lines and with the habits of similar countries (Canada, for example!). Looking at what the “average” American eats is interesting but it’s hard to place these facts in context without more information.
I just started reading Freak Angels, a free web comic about 12 teenagers living in a post-apocalyptic world.
