Links: Late May 2014


  • Simple home-made projectile weapon powered by magnets.
  • A star that could have formed in the same gas cloud as the sun.
  • Link between collectivism and rice. (Had this been written 25 years ago I could have referenced it in history class.)
  • I highly recommend exploring the Romantics and Victorians section of the British Library website. There are more articles than you can read in a day; here are some examples to get you started: [*****].

A status report on my ongoing archives clean-up: I’ve reached the end of 2010, and have added posts from that year to my official archives page. I’m now taking a break before starting on 2011, during which I intend to catch up on some housework and do research for my upcoming August holiday.

I intentionally paired the articles on your site with the one from because they disagree on certain points, and knowing what is disputed is as important as knowing what is advised.

    In the company
    of summer’s silent darkness,
    I walk invited.
