Google earth now has pictures of Pima and the airplane boneyard.
Bamboo pedal bike frames. Wicked cool material science and engineering. (Thanks M2)
Cooking made us human? A look at the fossil record and what it has to say about the rise of big brains and cooked food.

Scans on Flickr. I agree with Matt from Drawn, this one should be rewritten and reissued with the original illos.
I’m running late, le sigh.
