First of all ... politics. Never short of an Idiot, and interesting cynical take on James Murdoch vs David Cameron.
And secondly ... politics. The politicians are about to remove some of the interest in our lives by having "a bonfire of dead wood statutes" and abolishing some 800 outdated and obsolete laws. Have they really nothing better to do? Oh, sorry, it's their job to make our lives boring.
So to alleviate that boredom here are a few seriously amazing items ...
How long would it take to travel to the moon at the speed of whale? One Minute Physics has the answer.
[Not safe for the faint-hearted!] Turning to biology, entomologists have recently found and described an enormous Warrior Wasp, aka. Waspzilla. Talk about awesome! Yes, I really would love to meet one.
Still on the biological, I discovered The Tiny Aviary, the website of illustrator Diana Sudyka. Gorgeous drawings like the one above.
And finally more stunning art, this time from Dalton Ghetti who carves sculptures in pencil lead. How you even start doing that makes my head hurt!
