A plane mystery solved. This (flying?) derelict in Hanoi was identified by the fine folks at Telstar logistics. And we get a nice overview of the Antonov AN‐2. It’s wicked on skis.
Sweet, orange, retro, but brand new. French GIMA 125. Do Want.
The news that makes my day! SLS production has started. Last post until the first ones hit the US market. Promise (fingers‐crossed behind my back.)
The new Icon Variant helmet. The demo’d graphics are pretty damned teenage macho but I’m dying for the extra wide eye port and sweat wicking interior.
Free wallpaper of the vapor cone created at the moment of sonic boom enveloping and airplane.
Never missing a chance to be kawaii, these lunch box meals (bentos) feature Wall‐E, Mario, and the Linux penguin. Some times the foreignness of Japan makes my mind spin.
Doing science is never as easy as the tidy published reports with their pretty graphs and charts make it look. These entries in the Round Robin (Cornell Ornithology) show just how arbitrary the real world can be when you go looking for something. The Godwits that Cornell Ph.D. student Nathan Senner went looking for on Chiloé Island, Chile failed to get his save‐the‐date notice and where off at some other party when he arrived.

The first of the children’s books by Jim Flora, the king of bebop illustration, to be reprinted in decades. I can’t wait to get my own copy of The Day the Cow Sneezed.
New primitive in style, slyly modern in outlook, a Kama Sutra by Barcelona born Adria Fruitos. Absolutely, utterly, gloriously NSFW.
If you need something SFW. Go to Adria’s website and click on most anything else.
Simplicissimus was a German satirical weekly that published from 1886 through 1944. It has been digitally archived by the Herzogin Anna Amalia Bilbiothek. Cheeky, sophisticated graphics fill each issue.For example this first issue of 1904. Or you can have any other year you’d like by perusing the second link.
Sweet miscellany of winter bird images and illustrations. You’re bound to find something you like. Maybe a change of desktop wallpaper is in order?
that’s it sinners just one more day and then you can go back to being saints.
