Time is dead as long as it is being clicked off by little wheels;

Turning food into a visual, not edible, art.
Federal land ownership per state
Stephen Hawking's IQ test consists of 15 questions. What's your IQ if you get frustrated and quit halfway through? Damn, I hate those number series questions.
Color photos of the 1900 world's fair in Paris.
Rare acoustic version of Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd with Jazz violinist Stephane Grappelli.
From Harper Collins via Open Culture comes the opportunity to hear William Faulkner read part of As I Lay Dying.

Homeopathy Awareness Week
 Nice photo of Stick Men from the recent Cruise to the Edge. Photo by Armando Gallo.
Finland's homoerotic postage stamps. (Was it a requirement that they look like the product of a high school art contest?)
U.S. states distorted by population
The 750 mile long blob in the circle at the edge of Saturn's rings may be a new moon about to be flung off and born. (The proud parents are registered at the Jovian Toys R Us.)
April Fools Day is over people. Over.
Most common family names by European country
blood moon
Can someone knit me one of these tiny animals?
The periodic table of play
Trailer for the movie The Final Member about the world's only penis museum.
9 things your urine is trying to tell you. In my case it's mostly "LET ME OUT."
Philip Guston, Jimmy Ernst, Seymour H. Knox, Jr., Franz Kline, Robert Motherwell, and Mark Rothko at the May 15, 1957, opening of Contemporary ArtAcquisitions 1954–1957, Albright Art Gallery. It is only coincidence that I just finished a book about Arshille Gorky whose
The Liver Is the Cock’s Comb is in the background.
Compared to the other name of the year nominees this one is clearly the winner, but that's not saying much. (Curvaceous Bass?) But why not go all the way with McBeaglehole?
Just don't. source
This cow with its backpack is not going camping but it could light its own camp stove.

The "which one doesn't fit" number series ones always get me because I always see stuff that could work, but it's not necessarily what the test author was thinking. For example, in one of the series', the first letter of each number was either t or f, except for one.

Saturn looks radiant.

And the homeopathy awareness logo: wonderful.

I'm not going to say how much time I spent a couple of the number questions. The problem is it bothers me all day if I can't figure it out.

Glad to see Texas is without federal ly owned property.

I'll listen to Faulkner in a bit. Thanks
