Short list this morning.
Piccoli Bastadi means, of course, little bastards. Here’s a page of
shots of little (mostly 50cc) Italian bikes from the 70s. The siter is
in Italian but worth crawling around.
Materials Science continues to amaze me. Here is a structural steel
beam that can be moved into place without cranes. (or — as implied by
the pictures on the front page — carried around by one guy with a big
smile on his face.)
Brain whacks by McLuhan. (I can take or leave — well mostly leave
McLuhan but these are an interesting look into the mind that gave us
“the medium is the expression” and other over-used media memes.
Mental Floss has a new game. Lit Slits — which is no where as dirty as
it sounds but is an interesting way to pass a quarter of an hour. (For
someone who considers herself quite well read — I suck at this game.)
