Quick-Open Wrapping, or How I Learned to Love the Rip-Cord

This is awesome... almost makes me wish I didn't wrap everything this year in left over ikea brown paper and drafting graph paper. Perhaps I'll do this next year. Rip Cord gift wrapping

For Grahams named Paul

Here's an interesting concept... I got an e-mail from another Paul Graham over the weekend. It starts like this...

Hello. My name is Paul Graham, and so is yours.

I am writing to you because I think it would be interesting and fun to
list the URLs of all the folk who share our name on my web site -- a
Paul Graham Portal, if you will. An international pantheon of Paul
Grahams! A Paul Graham gathering place. Or perhaps an apauling idea
whose time has come. :-)"


A neat idea, seeing as there were 3 Paul Graham's in Sudbury alone when I first moved here. One has since left, but just last Friday I had someone come up and ask me if I was a different Paul Graham. Apparently he grew up in Sudbury, and is about my age. Anyway, apparently is a very common name, although I've never actually met another Paul Graham, only heard about them.

Backwash Experiments

This one is especially for Kate... but its entertainment value is high so I'll share it with everybody.

Our friends* at Cockeyed labs have done another experiment, this time to see if backwash can be prevented and which beverage containers are worse for backwash. They used unsweetened cool-aid crystals to dye their mouth, and conducted a few experiments. The results are interesting, but the commentary is where the real fun lies.


(*Not actually friends, I just stumbled onto his website one day... but it makes for a better into, eh?)

A global warning...

Find global warming stuff boring? Add some cool music, neat pictures and animations and next thing you know you've got an interesting video.
