A Few Random Links

Adventures with the Wife in Space: A guy and his non-fan wife watch classic Doctor Who from the beginning, and he records her opinions. Entertaining and funny, at least if you're a Who fan.

360-Degree Panorama Takes You Inside Prague’s Off-Limits Baroque Library: Or, as the friend who alerted me to this put it, "Hey, Wired has
bookshelf porn up today!" Oh, people. You know what I like.

Why Cats are Not Doctors: Hilarious. If you see a cat with a stethoscope, run!

First Image Ever Obtained from Mercury Orbit: The first picture sent back from Messenger, the first spacecraft to orbit Mercury. Definitely click for the larger image; the level of detail is great. One more planet down!

  2. A lot of places look like the moon. You get a lot of craters when there's no atmosphere. :)

    Also, catscan? Groooan.
