I decided to take it easy over Thanksgiving, to let some things slide a bit (including the stress levels and sleep deprivation from work), and unfortunately posting blog entries was one of those things. So, I missed a few Thanksgiving-related links being timely, but I’ll include them anyway.
Thanksgiving Physics. This was for Canadian Thanksgiving, but I think they have the same physics there.
I may do my own revised, stand-alone version in coming days, but here’s SFSignal’s Mind-Meld about Geek Gifts for the holidays, and I have my own contribution there. Some nice suggestions there.
The Royal Society’s Lost Women Scientists. A lot of astronomers discussed.
Oh, a really controversial list, I think. 10 Nerd Movies better than the Books they were Based on. Some good choices, and some I think that people won’t agree with the author about (e.g. Starship Troopers).
What’s in the sky in December: a meteor shower and a lunar eclipse.
A billion homes likely lost, and entire nations flooded, due to climate change. Surely not mine. I live at 7200 feet.
Sad news, fans of Airplane! and Forbidden Planet…Leslie Nielson dead. And stop calling me Shirley.
