Here is this week’s list of blog posts, photos, videos and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.
The WikiCommons page for the photo on the left says that this piece could be a representation of Isis mourning Osiris or that she could be a human woman in mourning. The emotion behind it is achingly powerful either way.
Passing for the Ruling Class. Why is it still considered shameful to be perceived as working class or poor?
How NASA Photoshops Hubble Images. I never knew that Hubble images were doctored before they are released. I wonder how close the colours on the photos are to what various astronomical bodies and phenomenon would look like if we were floating next to them?
Lottery Simulator. A widget that shows how much money you could make by playing the same lottery numbers every week.
My Parents Were Awesome. It’s odd to think that there was a time when my parents weren’t parents at all. Intellectually I know they had wonderful lives before I showed up, of course, but it’s still strange to imagine a world in which you and I didn’t exist (yet).
I’m Looking For Your Thoughts. Drew is working on a book and is requesting input from non-traditional Christians. Click on the link for more information.
What I’ve been (re)reading: The Ghosts of New York.Check it out even if you’re not generally interested in supernatural or ghost stories. It doesn’t rely on many of the tropes that are usually trotted out in these genres.
