Comic Book Legends Revealed #272: Superboy's DNA, Crisis on Infinite Earths, and Alley Oop.

Both Boing Boing and Lifehacker have information about restoring LEGO bricks to a non-yellowed color.

Speaking of LEGO, I want some of these tattooed LEGO Minifigs. Any but the tramp stamp.

Doctor Who Filming at the National Museum Cardiff.

Make an In-N-Out Double-Double, Animal-Style.

With all the stories of people quitting going around, Boing Boing has a Letter from a freed slave to his former master. I think I would like to have met the man who dictated that response.

Slate's Pre-College Reading List.

Street Fighting Mathematics.

The Depression in color. Color images from 1906.


Do not disappoint Basement Cat, the punishment is too horrible to contemplate.

Pug for the in-laws.

As I was in line at SDCC, waiting for Amy Mebberson to draw Bunsen Honeydew as Davros, the couple behind me offered that they were from Caerphilly, and shared their stories of Matt Smith waving to them on their lunch break. Apparently Cardiff is small enough that they have to go to other sites to film enough hospitals and office buildings.

And thanks for the Math link. I teach an Applied Calculus class, and my students are incapable of rough approximations. And since they have told themselves that exact answers are too hard, they sit for an entire semester not answering anything. (Of course, to fix this, we have to go back to 4th grade or so. But it's a start.)

While reading about the In-N-Out Double-Double Animal Style, I began to drool. Literally!
